WOYWW 763: Holiday Booked

 Welcome to my weekly sharing of the desk with Julia et al at Stamping Ground joining in with WOYWW.

The latest duck arrived last week.  I am pausing my duck collection for the moment, even though there are five more in the series, as I am running out of space in the shed to display them.
As you can see the collage pages are going well.  I am trying to include a Clarity die cut on each page as well as one or more of their Words stickers.  I have ordered some more stickers from Temu that should last me the rest of the year with the ones I already have.  I am also including book text torn from old volumes in the shed (French, German, Romanian and English).

#2 son has booked a villa to celebrate his 30th birthday at the end of May.  I have booked our flights, so the Saturday after the crop we will be heading out to northern Spain for a week of R&R.  The temperature is usually in the low to mid 20's then, so perfect as far as I am concerned.
Stay safe and Happy WOYWW.


  1. Loving the daily collages, there seem to have been lots already - January is flying by! I have booked some days off around the crop to ensure time for travel so once I check out trains, I am in!! Happy WOYWW Helen #1

  2. The collage pages are great! I love the idea of a common thread running throughout!

    Enjoy your R&R! The villa is awesome!

  3. Really love those collages. Great fun with some cute pieces. Oh the R*R sounds fun, didn't realize their temps would be that low in May. Here flying is a total mess with our weather, back ups/cancelations due to all of USA having bad weather. Stay warm

  4. Wow. The villa looks fab. Something lovely to look forward to. The collages are becoming a super collection. x x Jo

  5. The collage pages are brilliant. Looks like we're in for the Crop as it's just before Hubby starts work for the exam boards so he'll be able to bring me, can't wait. Happy woyww, Angela x11x

  6. Lovely idea for your son’s birthday, the villa looks fab and those are good temps for me too, I don’t do boiling hot these days! Great collages, they’ve given me an idea for when I have to run the next craft group with my friends.
    Hugs LLJ 8 xx

  7. WOW that's some super villa, sounds like a great place to celebrate. I'm still pondering my 60th but I guess it will just go by as an ordinary day... Loving the old book pages and letters etc on your collages also the words. I still haven't succumbed to Temu! You'll have more time like me when you are retired, I need to keep myself out of trouble. Hugs BJ#14

  8. I'm loving the daily collages, I've enjoyed seeing them now and again on FB but it's nice to see the whole collection together. I'm not surprised you need to top up your stickers supply! The villa looks gorgeous and how lovely to have that to look forward to during these cold grey days of winter - bet you can't wait.
    Have a great week,
    Diana xx #13

  9. Your duck is cute and your daily collages are impressive. We’ve booked a cottage nearby for the crop, nothing as grand as your family house in Spain, though. 🤣. I’m looking forward to coming back to Stoke but it won’t compare to your holiday!
    Take care and happy WOYWW

  10. Great collage pages . . .
    What a super holiday to look forward to . ..
    have a good week

  11. Wow that villa looks stunning! I can’t make it to the crop, too far for me to travel. I am so disappointed. We will be away in Scotland by then. Great collages. Was looking at my white die cuts yesterday thinking I might be more likely to use them if I plonked them in some tea or coffee. Happy WOYWW. Angela #15

  12. WOW! What a villa! Looks like you will be having some serious fun! Your daily collages are great, each one is similar but different from the previous one, well done! Have a lovely week, Lindart #18

  13. Fab collages and that villa looks perfect for some R and R.
    Annie x #10

  14. The holiday villa looks amazing! I.m a bit late, but then I always am! Happy WOYWW ((Lyn)) #16

  15. Aha, I wondered if the frames were stickers, and now I know they aren' word you have a lot of clarity dies! A week 8n Spain sounds perfect doesnt it, and if that's the villa, crikey, there's room for loads of you..I thought you were going to say it was in America! Loving the Uhuru duck, what else do you collect?

  16. Great collages and the trip to Spain sounds exciting! Happy WOYWW! Susan #2

  17. Your proposed trip sounds wonderful, enjoy when it comes time.
    Love the duck, will miss the others not being on your blog so I think you need an extension.Well, sorry I am so late commenting. Had an accident Tuesday in the house (not in the snow) and am in a bit of a mess. Knee gashed open and can't be stitched as I must have left some skin on the carpet. Ribs broken. It really is a mess and going to take a long time to get knee right.
    Ah well! Hugs, Neet 7 xx

  18. ooh nice collages and the holiday sounds good (and hope your boiler got fixed before the really cold weather hit). Running late on my returns this week.
