WOYWW 364: the one where she welcomes the 7 year itch


Many who know I've participated in What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday will want to join me at Julia's Stamping Ground.  But Julia isn't there, and won't be for a few weeks, because after she returns from holiday, she is scheduled for surgery.  So who better to take the reigns than Jan, who many of you know as LLJ and can be found at Lunch Lady Jan's Fabric Frenzy

My work table (yes, I stand to make art) shows I've been working hard on a swap.  I thought this package would be in the mail on Monday, but here it is almost Wednesday in my world, and it's still on my table.

Leave it to WOYWWendy to photo bomb the picture.  After all, she was born on this day seven years ago for our first anniversary.  I think she has the 7 year itch.

I know you really came to see the rocking horse I always show during WOYWW, and this one is a clear stamp I received from my friend Voodoo Vixen.

It's the first anniversary in which I have not made a PIF gift, but time and life have not been on my side recently.

So, thanks to Nikki and her lovely blog button, Wendy and I will just wish you a wonderful WOYWW anniversary.  Now let's join Jan as she steps once again into Julia's shoes.

EDIT: If you are a Google + only blogger and have your comments set up such that only those who have signed up for G + can leave a comment, I can't leave you one.  I'll visit, but I'm not going to join G + for anyone!

Hey there Elizabeth, thank you for joining in today, it's much appreciated. That WOYWWendy, she really knows how to hog the limelight, huh??! I'm sorry you had issues linking up, it's odd as some have had problems like you but others (me included) have linked up straight away. I don't understand!! Ah well, the world is still turning, I can only try my best!
Hugs, LLJ xxxx

Hi Elizabeth, not touched base with you in ages. I have that stamp too, always think of you when I use it - LOL. Thinking of taking my Altered Book in to show the children at the preschool I work at now, as something which is special to me. Happy WOYWW 7th Anniversary - BJ#20

Have a great woyww 7th Anniversary, Angela x30

Claire Grantham said...

Hello! Happy WOYWW A Versary!! I confess, I came to see the Rocking Horse :) I love the new one, that looks like a store back home..I might need to send a friend to investigate, when I moved 3 years ago they didn't do own brand stamps..Cx #53

Julia Dunnit said...

It's great to see you and WOYWWwendy! I find it hard to believe that she's 7, somehow that's more tangible than WYWW being seven! I hope you're well. I'm oK despite everything, all I have is low level ear ache and shocking vertigo, writing gone, speech slurred. It's very weird. Hoping that next week is the start of real recovery..I want the new normal more than I want this!!! Love to you.

Kim said...

Happy Anniversary! Love your space; I wish I could stand, but my back just won't let me. Lets hope WOYWWendy will see many more anniversaries to come.
Have a great holiday weekend.

Jeanie said...

I know my work desk would scare everyone. It scares me. Yours is much better!

Diana Taylor said...

Love your neat, tidy desk and I love the rocking horse stamp - I only stand up to do messy stuff like gelli printing in my studio, and even that's getting more difficult as I get older and more achey!! Thank you so much for your visit - your computer problems sound a bit of a pain, hope they are sorted out soon.
Happy WOYWW

Elizabeth said...

Hi Elizabeth, I'm sorry I haven’t managed to comment earlier, once again life got in the way! However, I have promised myself to get round all the desks this week to celebrate our 7 years of WOYWW friendship - so here I am. WOYWWWendy is looking good despite her advancing years :) I have that rocking horse stamp too - it's lovely. Have a great weekend, Elizabeth x #66

Hi Elizabeth, Love Wendy.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Happy 7th WOYWW Anniversary.

Christine said...

Thanks for your visit earlier, hope your weather is improving now.
I love making my little blankets, small and quick so the satisfaction level is very high. Then there is the added bonus that they will be taken home even if baby is not, something I would have loved when my baby died but there is nothing except her B & D Certificates. I just love crocheting them.
Take care and have a good week with no rain!
