Happy 5th Blogaversary WOYWW !

Thank you! Ms Dunnit, you done dunnit!

It been an amazing five years since this crazy What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday blog hop was started by Julia at the Stamping Ground. Pop over to her blog for the deets and the links to the best looking, busiest desks around the world.

On my desk this morning are ATCs from the WOYWW swap. I've received four fabulous ones so far. Starting at the top left going across, we have:

Journey from Voodoo Vixen - don't cha love the pocket she made!
Hand stitched ATCs from
Wipso - tiny quilt and cross stitching
Twiglet - pieced WOYWW cake with stitching
'Love your style' from Krisha. Gorgeous card and the ATC is so shimmery!

On the bottom left a new project has been started. In the middle is one of my ATCs that were put in the mail yesterday. Behind it is a TH pocket made from catalog advertising paper bags. The flap tucks in behind the keyhole tab. And the far right is the back of the ATC to be sent to the first * person after me in the link up.

Short and sweet today there's lots of desks to visit today. Have a wonderful day everyone! Thanks again Julia for being the bestest hostess in the world!

Happy Blogaversary Deskers!

Nan and the Girls

(edit: I had such a difficult time printing info labels and envelopes I forgot to put a date on my ATC. Feel free to add the date to yours. )

  1. wow Nan great haul of ATC's there well done you! and well will hop till Julia's up.. fun! happy 5WOYWW no number yet, Shaz in Oz.x

  2. You have made a haul. I feel bad that I didn't make more, so I will try to get something together soon. But it will be awhile before I get it. I'll let you know if and when I get around to making something.

    Bleubeard is mad at me because I didn't save one for you. He told me he would sign one for you and the girls. So, I need to keep him happy. An angry cat is not something you want to live with (grin). Have a super 5th Anniversary from #22.

  6. Happy Anniversary! :) Fun ATCs! Aren't we having fun! The ATC thing was all new to me. I just used a stamp the right size, and really didn't make it special like you all did, with date and everything. :( Yours are so special! #92

  7. Hi there! I've sent you an email regarding the link/password for the Crop photos...hope it all works ok.
    Lovely to see your beautiful ATCs on the desk, everyone has had such amazing ideas this year...mostly on the subject of friendship, which is wonderful. I posted yours a couple of days ago, so should be with you soon :-)

  18. Not sure if it's Blogger or your blog, but I can't see the photo :( I am really struggling to be able to post comments this morning so I'll keep refreshing the screen and see if it eventually works! Pretending I DID see it..."What a lovely selection" LOL! Luckily a few other people have posted their haul, and I got some of the ones you got so I feel safe in saying that :)

    Blogger is being difficult this morning. I hope this shows up...

    Happy 5 year WOYWW!

  27. Hello Nan,

    Oh my, I've already received my ATC and here I am finally visiting desks (on Sunday)! I'm running behind; hoping to mail out my ATCs early this coming week.

    Thank you so much for the adorable ATC (and the envelope!)

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Hugs, Kay (89)

  28. Hello Nan. At LAST I have got round to some visiting this week. What lovely ATCs you have already received. Great ones. John s finally home here after 6 weeks in hospital - which is my reason and excuse for not visiting sooner. We are having to re-adjust life here to new medication timetables, limited mobility etc.... so not a lot of spare hours at the moment.
    Take care - and thanks for visiting.
    God bless.

  29. Don't you just love those ATCs gorgeous little bits of art.
    I recognise a couple of them too.
    I had fun making mine it's been a while since I had time to 'play'.
    Thanks for your visit ... I'm still playing catch up with visits

  30. Hey Nan
    Sorry ive been so long in getting to you, but in true Paula style, I messed up! I linked up messing the code so had to relink again, forgot the asterisk, so had to relink again. What a numpty.

    Anyway, to save messing things up, I'll still happily send an ATC your way. Please would you get in touch and give me your address...

    Happy 5th WOYWW anniversary.

  31. That's a nice looking collection of ATC's! Enjoy the swap!

  32. Tee hee hee. I'm SO glad you were surprised. If I'd let you know they were coming, they wouldn't have been as much fun when you opened them. You noticed I'm sure that the rocking horses were missing on your envie, although I failed to get a photo of it. I'm THRILLED you like yours and I hope the girls like theirs, too. Bleubeard worked hard on it (grin)!!

  33. More lovely worldwide ATC artwork - I love the little pockets yours are travelling in.
