Celebrating WOYWW 104!!!!!!

Good morning to all the WOYWWers who are joining in to celebrate the second anniversary of this mad blog hop around the crafting desks of the world!!
Firstly, a huge thank you to Julia for thinking of the idea and then managing it so brilliantly.
(BTW - the card is not my PiF - I just wanted to post something on my little WOYWW easel beside my !st anniversary pin cushion and the Champers!)

We have made so many friends through our weekly visits to their desks.
There are so many like-minded folk out there that we would never have met otherwise.
I know its hard to visit everyone, but lovely that so many like to call in and leave a comment here.
Thank you to you all - you are such a positive bunch and I know Wipso and I would not be where we are today without all your encouragement!

So - my desk today.......
You can see the two, mounted fabric collages that I finished last week.
They are pics of little shops in Montgomery.
It is such a quaint little town. I decided to capture some of their pretty little buildings in a collage or two.
Below are some of daughter M's little free-machined pics that she made on Saturday.
We had a chill out day here. She made a couple of "new home" cards (see post below).
Then she felt the urge to make a few more, so that I could mount them and maybe sell them for her.
He he - do contact me if you would like one!!
OK - that's enough. I am going to make a real effort to get round EVERYONE this week so look out!!!

Right - off to sign up to Mr Linky with my *Twiglet.
I wonder who my little Pass it Forward will be heading off to by the end of today?????
Have a great WOYWW 104. x Twiglet.

SueH said...

I’m making a special effort to get around everyone as it’s a special week this week.


Are your pictures for you JO or are you going to put them on your local shops to sell. I think they would go down so well with the locals because they’re just that – local!
WOYWW has been a great place to meet friends and I can’t thank you enough for all your support last year when I was troubled by my eyesight and then going through the trauma of losing dad. It means so much, so thanks.

Happy WOYWW 2nd Anniversary and …………….
Happy Crafting!
