WOYWW 652 – another big tidy.


Happy WOYWW everyone! Now Thanksgiving is over I can properly look towards Christmas! And what is on my desk is an old set of 3D cards that I bought years ago and never used. I’m planning on having a bit of a play with them, probably using them more as templates than actual cards. We’ll see.

Anyone recognize them? They are branded Sandi Genovese (I seem to recall her being a die cut goddess of sorts) and def. came from a shopping channel.

I have spent the better part of three days doing some shifting of stuff in the house and will share a look at my room tomorrow, as there are still a few things I need to sort out. But I do have a shot of the window desk, with the If You Had To… cards

And something I unearthed, which is a book fold I did of, well, ME. I’ve shared it before but I thought I would share it again as it’s been years.

So there we go. Oh!! and I nearly forgot! The redone faux postage along with a new stamp, sized to fit MY postage stamp dies. Find more detailed info here and this is what it looks like – the new stamp features the Wen Des D’ay islands – see how they form a W? Cute hummm?

See you round yours!

  1. Happy Very Belated WOYWW !! (Too busy thinking up ideas for new Amazon KDP books and not having enough time to design them all.) Your craft room is fantastic. Sort of similar to mine – with the separate tables for different tasks. I am determined to finish off the decluttering by February at the latest (my 51st birthday) and get the big old wardrobes out, that make the room seem smaller and darker. Wish me luck, as hubby is very busy on the farm and these need to be dismantled to get them out. Never tried book folding. Doing one of yourself is very clever. That designer does sound familiar. Looks like a really versatile kit. Ali x #8

  2. So much to see in your recent postings. Love the book – so nice to have something so personal. I enjoyed the tour of your craft room which, by the way, is very much like mine! And your Christmas card post is interesting. I did buy some card kits, as you have, and was disappointed by much of the contents. I’ve now returned to using scrappy leftovers as I did originally – it’s less costly and more satisfying. Your stamps are brilliant. Have a great weekend. Elizabeth x #21

  3. Amazing book folding! Hope you get all your sorting done! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. My goodness! I am very impressed with your book folding project. Well done! Angela #13

  5. I have always loved book folds but never done one and this looks great. No idea who Sandi Genovese is but these people are not well known in all countries so maybe that’s why. The stamps are a great idea and look great. Wishing you a very happy and creative woyww, Angela x16x

  6. I do love your faux stamps from the Worklandia and the Wen Des Day islands. The book portrait of you is excellent

    Take care and happy WOYWW

  7. Never heard of that person, but then I was never into shopping channels until Hochanda came along and you got more demonstrations than chat but hardly watch them these days. Don’t recognise anything either.
    Never seen your book fold before, now that is amazing. How on earth did you do that? I once missed a class on doing a butterfly so got the book and instructions but have never quite got the handle of this craft.
    Take care and have a good week.

  8. Yours is one of the few desks I don’t immediately recognise because of the different views (or perhaps because you have more than one!) As you know I’m s sucker for postage stamps and I know how difficult it is to make them the right size and ratio to fit the available dies. Why hasn’t TH released a die set with his Stamp Collector stamp set? He has missed a trick there, I would have bought both! Love the book folding – once I made a Christmas tree out of a book – that was fun! A lot less complicated than your project though! Happy December! xx zsuzsa #18

  9. Love the desk and I choose everyone talks in front of me cos they do!! Even my pink hair doesn’t make me visible!!
    That is some amazing folding, never could get the folds right…. But yours is beautiful.
    Happy WOYWW

  10. I love the ATC cover! I don’t recognise the name Sandi Genovese at all, but you know me, I’d have walked past anything that looks complicated!! Still loving the book fold, that photo of you and all the trickery you do with it is the best branding ever!

  11. Wow, look at that book fold of you, it’s amazing!! I am in awe of your patience because I know I simply wouldn’t have enough to complete a project like that. But it’s your stamps that I love, love, love! They’re are just brilliant and I think you need to approach the Royal Mail, on behalf of all us crafters lol!

  12. The book folding looks amazing Mary Anne – I have never had the patience for it myself so I admire yours. Good luck with the rest of the sorting and cards. Stay safe and happy WOYWW. Sarah #3

  13. I never did manage to do a book fold project – still on the mental to do list! I don’t recognise the 3d card person, but was never a big one for watching shopping channel crafting. Not sure about the what if choices today – although possibly lots of people practise the first one anyway!!

Thanks for dropping by. I hope you found something interesting and welcome your feedback. If you ask a question, and don't add your email, do either subscribe to replies or check back. I try to answer every question if I can. Cheers!
