WOYWW The Anniversary Edition!

I can hardly believe that WOYWW has been going for a whole 3 years now.
It only seems like yesterday I stumbled upon Julia's desk and wondered what the heck, then got sucked in and the list of peeps grew and grew and the rest as they say is history.
So I would just like to say a BIG THANK YOU to Julia for bringing all us nosey desk hoppers together, I've made a fair few friends because of you xxx
So to my desk..
Regular visitors to my blog will know my poor desk hasn't seen much action lately hence why it looks a bit bare, The white thing is a Prima Mixed Media album gifted to me by The Headmaster {aka snazzy boss Don} I thank him ever so much & can't wait to play in it.
The other new thing you may spy is a pasta maker, My darling OH got it for me for my clay play so I hope to be putting that to good use too once i'm back into the swing of things.
Now to the ATC's
I made these a few weeks ago in readiness for today knowing that i'd probably forget till it was too late.
In addition to the "official" atc giveaway, I have a few others to give to a couple of selected random peeps who leave a comment on today's WOYWW post.

Not sure if i'm gonna do 2 sets of 3 or singles or what to be honest, you'll just have to wait and see!!
Well it's all part of the fun isn't it. I'll post the winners for the "extra's" in next weeks woyww
Right i'm off to hop some desks
Happy 3rd Anniversary WOYWW You ROCK

Stay Inky

Hi there, I've got a pasta maker too. It was never purchased with the intention of making pasta! I love polymer clay, will have to get back to some more soon, I think! Happy 3rd WOYWW anniversary!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I think I am your ATC person, Minxy. I mean, I believe I send to you. I'm setting up a temporary e-mail because mine is not working. The ISP belongs to a friend and I'm just using one e-mail account.

Please send your mailing address to alteredbooklover at cox dot net.

Elizabeth said...

Great post and lovely to see your very tidy desk. I still remember the first time I saw a pasta maker on someone's desk ... couldn't think why it would be there so had to ask and then all was clear, for clay, of course, why didn't I think of that :)) Terrific ATCs, and you've been much better organised than I have! Happy WOYWW and enjoy what's left of the day. Elizabeth x #96

Hi Nicky! Sorry I'm a bit late getting round - the Queen's Jubilee got in the way a bit!

Fab ATCs Missus! I too am among the ranks of the pasta machine owners, and I'm ashamed to say that mine has never made it out of its box.... cringe.....

Happy WOYWW, and thanks for stopping by.
