So....WOYWW is four years old! Congratulations to Julia for 4 years of being the host who takes us around the World to visit  some lovely desks! That means I missed out for nearly three years, how I wish I'd known about this fun before then! Well actually, I think I did, as blog friends would occasionally have this strange acronym at the top of their posts and show off their desks - except that I thought it was exclusive and I needed an invite! I know better now, and if you want to know more about how to join in take look here at Julia's blog.It's been lovely to make so many friends, even though we never see each other!
So, this week it's my caravan desk and there's someone else working there!
My lovely granddaughter - she thinks her tooth may come out while she and her brother are staying with us while Daddy is having to work this week! We have decorated two matchboxes (one to take home) for the tooth fairy! Here she is adding stickles them!
We used Distress inks and Lavinia stamps and we've had a great morning so I hope you will forgive me for being a little late! We hope to get around a few desks this afternoon after we've been out for a leg stretch!!
Happy WOYWW! Chris (and Emily)

I love to see the little ones crafting and wouldn't we have loved as children to have had all the super paints and equipment that we have now!? My little grandee calls it the magic making room and it her first stop when she arrives for visit.
Happy 4th WOYWW 4th anniversary and I'm glad I got to know you through this super blog!

There's nothing better than crafting with grand-children. Emily looks so intent and what a good idea making a tooth fairy box and what better stamps than LAVINIA'S. Have fun xx

Isn't it wonderful to share your desk with the GKs? I get one for the day tomorrow and am so looking forward to a little one on one with her.

What a good idea to put some fairy dust on the matchboxes to attract the eye of the tooth fairy! Glad you had a lovely time playing together!

Hi Chris, Tell your grand daughter these are the bestist tooth fairy boxes ever!! sorry I am so late visiting, have had a busy 2 days. Thanks for dropping in on me. Hugs Mo x

Busy as a little Bee! The Fairies are very fond of Bees and may award an extra coin for effort :)

I’m sorry to be late in visiting but I’m now on day three of my quest to get round everyone this week. I know it’s going to take some time, but I wanted to say that it’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

Your granddaughter looks really engrossed there Chris and what better stamps to use for the tooth fairy than Lavinia ones. The little boxes look fab.

Enjoy your weekly snoop, especially as we’re celebrating WOYWW’s 4th Anniversary.
Happy Crafting!

Awww - what a cutie working at your work desk. I hope it was a big match box - the tooth fairy has felt inflation along with the rest of us. ;-) April #125

Lavinia stamps are perfect for a tooth fairy box or two! Well done Emily, love your little box!
