What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #676

I'm back!! and just in time it seems to join in with the 13th anniversary celebrations. When I consider how often I don't make it here for whatever reason it makes me realise what a huge commitment this has been for you Julia over the years. Bravo. Sorry for being AWOL, Wednesday has just not been a day-at-home day for weeks. 2 holidays, 2 days out, a funeral, a wedding, internet down - you name it it's been happening and preventing me from taking part. (Advance warning: off again next Wednesday so no guarantees...)

I received a WOYWW13 ATC yesterday from Jan (Thank you my lovely) which of course sent me into a frenzy of catch up and activity. My desk isn't very exciting at the mo as I've just finished another commission but I've got this far.... 

so let me know if you want an ATC as I plan to have a few ready to go by the end of the day - I have postage stamps and everything!!

Craftiing has been on a bit of a back burner as  I have been so busy but I did finish the card using the teddy's I showcased in March - has it really been that long? This card is huge but I love it.

So, I shall enjoy desk hopping and doing a bit of  me crafting today to celebrate re-connecting with my WOYWW buddies. Super excited to hear about the planned crop - now, to see if I can make that happen. 

So, why am I showing you my desk? Well it's our weekly Wednesday Blog Hop - WOYWW. Here's the link to the one responsible, the lovely Julia at Stamping Ground - pop on over and join in, see what it's all about and have a go yourself. 

Have a great week, stay well, stay safe, stay connected!! love n hugs Cindy xx

Happy Anniversary WOYWW. You have got further than me with the ATC creation (ie I will be starting and finishing them today!). Would love to swap with you. Will email shortly to exchange addresses. I LOVE the teddy card. It does look huge, but all the better for showing off their cuteness. Ali x #8

Happy 13th WOYWW Cindy!! I’m so glad you ventured out to deepest darkest Wiltshire for the first Crop all those years ago! It’s always exciting to see what you’re working on and I LOVE that 70th card with the teddies, made me smile!!
Glad my atc arrived ok,
I’ll raise a glass to everyone this evening!!
Hugs LLJ 6 xx

Me too! Been AWOL for a month but now the in-laws are gone and life is slowly returning to normal. I only realized it was the big swap week on MONDAY but what else could I do but hunker down and make ATCs? I realize, too, that I missed designing a back for this year, Yikes. Oh well. maybe next year? Your desk is always an inspiring one so glad we both made it back.
Happy 13th year of WOYWW!

I have one left and it's saved for you. Please swap as we have done over the years. Lovely to see you here for the anniversary, you have been missed.
That card is absolutely fantastic! Lucky Jeff. I would love to know how to make one (hint hint and pretty please) as it would be perfect for my class next month.
Hugs, Neet xx 7

Annie said...

I'm hoping to comment on all blogs today [I'm using the laptop cos I struggle on my Ipad] Happy Anniversary to you. It's a wonderful community we belong to and it's so lovely to have made so many friends thanks to our WOYWW link ups.

I also print my backs in my word processing program, but I didn't do anything special like you. Of course, I only made two. One for Julia and one for my PIF.

I love that card you made. It is gorgeous. Now I am even more sure of why I don't make cards. Happy 13th from # 1.

Hi Cindy, Happy Anniversary my friend. I would have loved to swap with you but looks like all mine are spoken for, many another time. Loving the Teddy card and lucky you so many days out, I could do with a holiday for sure. Wishing you a very happy woyww on this special day. Hugs Angela x15x

Great to see you, life really does interrupt the flow huh. I’m ok with it generally but then end up with a yearning to be able to do cutting and sticking. Doesn’t make me stay up all night or anything drastic - I just drop housework!! That teddy card is a triumph Mrs, no wonder you’re pleased with it. As for Crop…if you’re thinking of going solo, I definitely will be, so perhaps we could hook up and share accommodation or location for a couple of night. I’ve suggested this to Helen too, something else to throw into the pondering pot, but am not offended if the idea makes you want to run a mile!!

Good to see you - I popped in last week only to find it was anniversary time coming up. Hoping to be more than an occasional visitor a I have cu back on some other stuff! Loving your bear card. Hugs, Chrisx #27

BJ said...

What a super duper birthday card, love it. I was late to the party as have been absent for a couple of months. Only managed to make 3 in the end and I had to keep one myself! Hugs.

Sorry I'm so late, I seem to get busy Wednesday's through the weekend....
Happy very belated WOYWW Anniversary BJ#18
