Holy smokes! Isn't the 4th anniversary of WOYWW on week 208?! That's an amazing feat, Julia! Bet it has grown some in those years, huh?! :)  Need some insight about this phenomenon? Pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground blog for all the deets and links to crafty desks around the world.

I need to print some of the WOYWW logos for my ATCs and then get them made. Let me know in your comments if you would like to swap. I'll swap with the first twelve who leave a note in their comment. :)

On to my crafty desk....all kinds of stuff going on as I'm working on my Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary challenge. Our letter this fortnight is 'A'.  Although I don't see the blog updated yet. One of the DTs had the info on their blog yesterday.

So on my desk, there's distress inks, metallic stains and the new metallic paint. Some new Prima stamps and other bits and bobs. I've covered my page so I don't show too much before it's posted.

Enjoy your snoop. I'll be snooping some tonight and then on Friday. Thursday is my first class for May. Is it May already? I think I lost April would someone send it back .... please!

Celebrate life!

Oh almost forgot! We went to the Leesburg Bikefest last weekend. Now this is a Bikefest! Leesburg knows how to throw a party, they close off 4 square blocks downtown for bikes only. Tried to get some pics to show the crowd and all the bikes. Main Street had three rows of bikes. A row on each side and one down the middle.

Four blocks of foot peg to foot peg...BIKES!

Still lots of tourists but fewer than at Daytona

20' of clear sidewalk! Didn't last long :)

Next is Octoberfest. :)
