WOYWW 728 - Anniversary

I really couldn't ignore the chance to say Happy 14th Anniversary to all WOYWWers and especially of course Julia of the The Stamping Ground who has been a wonderful host of 'What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday' for 14 years. 

This will be my 12th year although I have not been a regular desk sharer for a while BUT Julia does say that WOYWW will be here if we want to join in and today I definitely do!!

I was doing so well keeping my desk tidy - mostly clearing away each time I craft...until...well, you know...things crop up!!

To be fair, the Paper Artsy stamp set on the right is about to be used - but the journal on the right isn't the right size so after writing this post I will be off to get a larger one out.

The under paper has been used to test stamp a couple of stamps before using them on journal pages. 

There's a real jumble of glues, embossing powders and scraps at the back.

Pretty soon I am going to have to get a travel journal prepared - yes we're off again, meeting up with friends for a roam around Normandy and Brittany so I am not sure when I will get back here, but I am looking forward to seeing a few desks over the next few days.

Tonight there's a special meal here at our retirement complex so I may not get very far today!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Happy anniversary!

My name is Cindy said...

I started early but had a big break in the middle of my day so only just getting to the end of the list. Lovely to see you here, I am also a sporadic visitor and I do admire those with the discipline to make it every week - I get distracted too easily (or lately just forget it's Wednesday). That jumble of product looks very interesting - what alchemy of creativity has been going on here I wonder? Enjoy your travels - sounds fab!! Happy Anniversary, love and hugs Cindy xx #7

Julia Dunnit said...

Lovely to see you Chris! Great to know that you’re still stamping and making, I like the test images on the under paper very much!
A roam around France sounds a lovely way to spend some weeks of summer, so much to see in those regions, your travel journal will be stuffed! Talking of stuffed..hope last night’s special meal was lovely!

ukmaryanne said...

always a joy to see you on the list. I will also say well done on the AJJ. I really need to get back to it. Hope this posts, as I decided to throw caution to the winds and comment even if I have to sign in to Google to do it. It's an anniversary week so what better time to break the habit for a week? :D
France sounds warm and lovely so will look forward to seeing that journal . Hope the meal was fab :)
Happy 14th Anniversary WOYWW

Diana Taylor said...

So sorry I'm late getting round. I like the Paper Artsy stamps - they are always a favourite with me. I'm loving the soft texture on the journal page too. Hope you enjoy your travels.
Happy 14th Anniversary,

I had to rest my typing hand, but I'm back now. Those PA stamps look great. Do you know your left from your right? I THINK you meant the journal was on the left. Or was that your other right (grin). Sorry. You know I read every word and find mistakes easily. Still, I am interested in that PVA glue cover. Do those really9 keep the glue fresh and not gloppy? Happy 14th Anniversary from # 3.

Hi. I hadn't been on for a while. My space is hardly ever tidy. Having recently cleared it all out for decorators , putting it back, sorting out I hope keep it a little bit tidier. Good to 'see' you here. Anne x 20

A late visit from me as I can't get into Stamping ground to see who's there. Your desk looks busy I think I have a couple of Artsy stamps from ages back...must get them out again, they were always some of my favourites. Happy Late WOYWW ((Lyn))17
