Good morning all!
Unusually for me - I have not crafted in my little room all week.
So no crafty creations of mine on display BUT.....

Just look at this feast of crafty wonderfulness that has arrived through my letterbox over the last week!!!!!
I hope I have thanked each and every one of you by email but if not, I will be doing so - In the meantime a big thank you for all your hard work and creativity.
Annie and I had a "show and tell" on Monday and it was so lovely to look at each one and see all the processes involved.
What a clever bunch you are!!!
Do click on my photo and have a close look - they really are fab!

We have loved making ours and joining in the swap but best of all we love the friendship that Julia and her clever invention - WOYWW - have created.
Various folk who went to the celebration "crop" have shared their photos - what a fab day you all had and so nice to put faces to names too.

May we enjoy many more happy WOYWWs and make connections with more global blog buddies!

x Jo

voodoo vixen said...

What a lot you got!! Such a fabby collection. I am a bit curious... because I can see the envelope I sent you and it looks like a $1.70 stamp on it... which is weird because the man at the post office charged me $2.60 for the 12 I posted overseas and said he would put the stamps on... hmmmm, methinks I have been ripped off!! Happy WOYWW from Annette #8

Hi Jo

Elizabeth said...

Hi Jo, what a lot you got! And they are all wonderful creations - like you say, what a clever bunch our fellow crafters are. I'm now feeling extremely inadequate - my ATCs are nowhere near as good :( However, celebrating 4 years of WOYWW with the swap has been full of fun and friendship. Have a happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #57

SueH said...

You’ve certainly a lovely collection of ATC’s there Jo and everyone is so different. It’s great seeing all the artistic talent out there. Can’t believe that you’ve not been crafting this week, it’s so not like you.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great week and……..

Happy Crafting!

Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting. I'm just sorry you couldn't come to the crop: I'm dying to meet you!

Nothing wrong with a week away from crafting. I hope it's allowed you to recharge your creative juices.

Take care,
