WOYWW 520: Happy 10th Anniversary

Happy 10th birthday to WOYWW.  How amazing that this weekly blog link up has been kept going for so long.  I wasn't there at the start (my blog has been going for less than four years), but I have been joining in regularly since I discovered this friendly bunch of deskers and their leader Julia.  Each week we link our desks over at The Stamping Ground and see what everyone else is up to.  There are plenty of people who don't link up but still like to visit, all are welcome.
As you can tell, my desk is thoroughly staged.  I am in the middle of getting samples ready for three upcoming Clarity shows, so obviously can't share what I am doing yet.  I also have not had time to make ATCs.  However, I thought I would like to give my PIF a chance to see all the tags that are available to be sent so that they can choose their favourite.  The rest (and more) will be coming with me to the 10th anniversary crop so all who attend will get a little something from me.
Yesterday was the monthly JJAMMMA meet up at Stockport.  Unfortunately Eva had a work emergency which required her attention and was unable to attend. 
Guesting on the other side of the desk, Chris was making ATCs, Lou had brought some beading with her and Jane (virtually unrecognisable without her trademark pink hair) was stamping and colouring.

Rizwana managed to make it for the first time this year which was great.  She was making a little wallet using patterned papers to decorate it.  I didn't get a photo of Kaz who was busy making cards, or Angie who joined us for the first time and was working in her journal.  I took a colouring book and pencils with me and think I'll do the same for the crop.  Happy WOYWW everyone,  I'll be round to see if there is cake on any desks after work lol.

Hi, Sarah. Haven't decided what I'm taking to work on at crop, but i expect it will be a journal (or two) Mid-week crafting sounds a great way to spend your Tuesday. Helen #1

Gotta love all of your tags, Sarah. Yes, it's amazing how different this year is than last year. I couldn't leave a comment on your blog last year and was so stressed, I didn't enjoy the event. This year, now that G+ is finally gone, I can relax and enjoy the party. I'm off to check out your tags, dear. Happy 10th from # 5.

Happy 10th WoywW Anniversary Sarah if i'd kept my first blog I think i'd have been around in blogland for about 10 years now but still not have discovered the stamping ground. So nice to hook up with our online buddies and see what everyone is up to. You tags look fab!! No time to participate in the swap sadly so i'd pre-arranged one just for Julia.

Nice to see your crafty friends working hard, especially Chris who has just become a grandmother! Yeah!
A colouring book and pencils sounds a good idea to me - might have to do just that myself as I take too much stuff and then do nothing but natter.
Hugs, Neet 18 xx

Hi Sarah. Happy 10th anniversary. A great bunch of people indeed! Great work on the tags - I haven't begun to think about ATCs for the crop yet - for all I know, at my current working speed, everyone will be getting a bar of chocolate!!!
Take care. See you at the crop. God bless.

"Guesting on the other side of the desk..." I've never heard guest used as verb before but I love it! Being a foreigner and a former language teacher, I appreciate these little gems! A lovely collection of tags - have fun at the crop and don't forget to take photos for those of us who can't make it. Happy 10th anniversary! zsuzsa #26

Hi Sarah!
You must be one of the busiest crafters I know! Every day you have something new on facebook or on your blog! Anyway HAPPY WOYWW 10th birthday! It was a pleasure to meet you and Eva the year before. I am hoping I will be able to come but if not you will get an ATC from me! I think I have your address somewhere!
Love and hugs
Cardarian

Shoshi said...

Happy 10th anniversary, Sarah! I love all your gorgeous tags. It looks as if you had lots of fun with your friends crafting away! Thank you for your visit, and especially for your good wishes regarding my PIP application. I am finding the whole thing very stressful but gradually getting the required info together. Thank you also for your good wishes for all our birthdays (Lily and Ruby too!) and I'm so glad you enjoyed the card I made for my hubby! Little Lily taking to the air!

Sorry this is late. I've had a very busy couple of days and with everything that's going on, I'm feeling extremely floppy and unwell today.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #15

Sue said...

Hi Sarah, Lovely selection of ATCs.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. You put your number as 4, but you are #3. You aren't the only one who's number has changed.

Happy 10th Anniversary WOYWW

Hi Sarah, a tad behind on my catch up here, y’know think tags are a great idea instead of an ATC, yet the funny thing is I rarely do either, on,y when have to!! Loving yours of course, still love the one you gave me at last crop, how wonderful that we actually met, so very grateful I was well enough to go last year, nothing short of a miracle.
Your meeting up with friends at Stockport looks wonderful I would love to do that too. Happy belated WOYWW 10,
Hugs Shaz in Oz.x #24
PS so loving your pop up comment box. Thank you!
