WOYWW 208 – four years!

Hard to believe it’s been that long!  I’ve been doing WOYWW since November of 2009, which is just a bit after it started, and have loved it every week.  The regular snoop around desks all over the world has been fun, inspirational, and motivational. As I’ve said before, taking part in WOYWW also resulted (combined with the fluke of auto-fill of addresses in email systems) in me becoming part of the Ludgershall crop, which is another bright spot in my scrapping life.  All in all it has been, and continues to be, just the most fun.

But what you really want to see is WOMW so here it is – I am working on the photos for the little mini-book from yesterday.  I decided I would use photos of the kids together, and slice them in half, if I could, so the full photo covers the “pages” – a change from the Concertina mini I showed, from yonks back. I was actually surprised at how quickly I was able to find photos that worked!


Careful cutting between the figures is what is needed:

photosYandM3With luck, after visiting desks today, I’ll manage to get it if not done, then at least nearly done.  I’m excited – it’s been too long since I did a proper scrapping project!

So there you go – marking four years of desk-hopping with hopefully many more to come!  Looking forward to the 2nd annual WOYWW crop this weekend and meeting up with lots of desk-owners for a day….

Happy WOYWW!!

ATCs: Try though I might to get more done, I am stuck at the special one for the official swap and 5 additional ATCs.  Leave in your comment that you want to swap and I’ll sort it out with you via email.  Most people who comment have their email in their “form” so you shouldn’t have to add it in the public comment text.

And ARRGGHH!  It’s infuriating, and speaks to Julia’s comments on commenting and how difficult it has become, that I am unable to comment on her blog as Open ID is not supported, only Google log-in will allow you to comment.  Woke up with a jolt at 4:34, unable to go back to sleep, played solitaire for ages, then when WOYWW popped up no Mr. Linky.  Didn’t this happen last year for the 3rd birthday too?  It’s like it KNOWS we are all waiting on it and decides to have a glitch to make us crazy…..
