WOYWW 416: Eight Year Anniversary!

It's amazing to think that this week marks the 8th anniversary of WOYWW.  I have been blogging for less than two years and came very late to the party; well done Julia for keeping this amazing blog hop going for so long.  We are crafty family!

 The desk in all it's glory; both my side and my crafty friend's.  As usual, this photo was taken a day early so that I could share her side of the desk too rather than an empty space.  You can see lots of paint, a box of stamps, a box of gilding waxes and in the background my drawers with all my sprays.  My lap top is ready to go and the camera case is in the bottom right corner.  On my side of the desk (right) you can see the finished art journal page that I was working on earlier in memory of all those innocent people who lost their lives in Manchester.

This was the starting point for the journal page, lots of bits of tissue paper cut into triangles to make a bleeding tissue background.  For the finished page and step by step you can see HERE.

My friend finds it difficult to pack light when she comes to visit, even though I can usually find anything she needs and has forgotten to bring. She brought loads of paint, gelatos and some embossing folders with her (to list just a few items); also the cards she made with the backgrounds that she was working on last week as she thought you might like to see them.
I have no ATCs for the swap, however I will  send out a tag  to the next person on the list who is participating if that is acceptable.
