WOYWW - Week 173

Hello  Woywwers and fellow bloggers

Thank you so much to all my latest followers and to those who have been following me for a while, I really appreciate your company.  I did not do WOYWW last week, as those of you who follow me will know.

For those who don't know what WOYWW is please pop over and see our lovely hostess Julia who you can find at for details.

This week I don't have much to show on my workspace, just a few started but not finished projects ( Mr Mojo has taken a hike again!).  This is how my desk looks on this wet, cold and windy morning:

I am colouring a picture for a birthday card for DD, there is a finished one for GS2.  You can also see a tag which I have covered with metal tape and embossed, waiting for some inspiration to grab me.  At the back I have stamped another Tim Holtz blueprint dragonfly ready to go on a notecard and you may just be able to see 5 rectangular butterfly stamped cards from my very old Magenta butterfly stamp, waiting to be made into a mini book (inspired by the uber talented Marjie Kemper).  Also there is some new Tim Holtz paper string and some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Abominable Snowman (gorgeous and sparkly) to use on Christmas Cards.

That's it from me this week but I would like to say a huge heartfelt thank you to all who visited me last week and left lovely get well messages and to those who sent me gorgeous cards and gifts (you know who you are), I was really moved and very touched by all your kindnesses.  I am making slow progress. Thank you again.   I do keep saying it but Crafters really are the most wonderful people and I am so glad I took the plunge into blogland.

I will visit as many as I possibly can this week, looking forward to seeing what you are all up to. 

Crafty hugs, Anne xx


  1. Hi Anne, glad to hear all is well and you are recovering all the works in progress on your desk! Take care, sending you a big crafty hug, Carole Z xxx

  2. Hi Anne...pleased to hear you are recovering...just take things easy and before you know you'll be back in the crafty swing...sending hugs kath & buddy xxx

  3. Hi Anne, glad to hear you are getting better day by day. Can't wait to see wat you do witht he Timmy metal tag and Timmy string (what where when how) Ever found any Timmy mini tinsel anywhere? BJ#42

  4. Glad you are feeling better first of all and secondly do you think your Mr Mojo has gone off on holiday with mine?
    You know I don't keep up to date as I should and I haven't a clue what Timmy string is. Will have to explore your picture to find out. Do like the piece you are working on at the moment (centre stage).
    Thanks for sharing, Hugs, Neet 5 xx

  5. Hi Anne. I was so sorry to hear you have been in hospital but hope you continue to make steady progress. Don't rush it, it takes longer than you think, believe me, I was there in May and was mighty surprised at how long it took to get back to normal.
    You have some lovely things on your desk, I love the look of that colouring. I think Mr Mojo is still suffering from the Anesthetic so don't worry. He'll be back soon.
    Take care and Happy WOYWW

  6. Hi Anne
    I'm sorry I had it in my head your op was the 30th. We are glad to see you are on the mend though and still crafting away. What a star you are.
    I spent the day with Carolyn Saxby on Tuesday, I'm down in St. Ives. She is so lovely and it was great to swap ideas, we really did feed of each other. I will be writing more when i get home.
    Take care, I'm sure your DH is taking great care of you.
    Love Lynn an the gang x x x

  7. Anne - so glad to see you on here - I have missed your work and I'm (selfishly) hoping you'll be better soon so that we can all see more! Your desk does look interesting! Seriously though you take care and don't rush back if it hurts! Big crafty hugs Rachel xx

  8. So glad to hear you are making steady progress....listen to your body and allow it to heal. I am always being told off for doing too much but how do you know you've done too much ...til you have done it! :-) Take care and get lots of rest while you can.

  9. A lovely busy creative play space you have there; thanks for sharing it and I hope you have a great week.

  10. Hi Anne - hope you are making good progress - take it easy and enjoy a good excuse to put your feet up and chill. No doubt Mojo will return soon. x Jo

  11. I hate to keep you away but it really is best you don't make it to Port Sunny... you really need to take it easy, Hope you get 100% soon. Glad you liked the treasure on my post, they are still trying to discover why it was all hidden for so long with no luck so far only guesses.
    Have fun crafting till you feel more like gadding about and save all the cash for a lovely big crafty splurge as a reward!

  12. Hiya sweetie, loving the look of the image you are colouring for DD. Reaching for the Promarkers seems to be so theraputic and calming, especially when Mr M. takes a hike. Thank you again for your kind offers too. You are such a special crafty friend. Huge hugs, Buttons #70

  13. Check you out! I made it sound like you were on your death bed over at my blog' cause I didn't expect to see you here today! But I'm so happy you are feeling well enough to get crafty and join WOYWW - squee!!! Don't overdo, but have fun!!

  14. Lovely to see that you are well enough to join in with the fun today! Glad you are slowly feeling more human again. Crafting is good for the soul, that's for sure.

  26. Good Morning Anne,
    Thanks for your lovely words. Enjoyed a look around your desk - metal tag looks interesting, Promarkers swinging into action, and dragonflies always appeal to me.
    Warm wishes,
    Ros. #31

  27. Thanks for letting us visit your world today. You have some nice things going on. I think one of these days I must investigate the metal tape. It does look fun to play with. Keep on keeping on!

  28. Firstly Anne, I am sorry to hear you have been poorly, but glad you are on the mend. I wish you a speedy recovery.
    It's fab looking at your desk and all the crafty goodies and projects that are there, I think it is amazing that as I sit here crafting and blogging, so people are doing the same all over the country and the world. That brings a real affinity to us I think.Take care of yourself and happy belated WOYWW and thanks also for stopping by my space.
    hugs {brenda} xox

  29. I hope each day has you feeling a little better and ready to tackle new creative pursuits Anne.We are separated by a very wild and wide ocean and yet on my desk there is also some embossed metal tape! Let your Mojo rest R&R is just what you need.

  30. Hi there Anne, ah do love that picture your are colouring so beautifully on your desk and also the embossed tag - so looks like work is going on in spite of what you say.. trawl the blogs or you tube when ideas dry up always works for me! Pray you continue to mend well! Thanks so much for popping over and thanks for sharing ~ happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz. x #21

  31. Yay! Glad to hear you're feeling a lot better! Love the work on your desk this week, and I have to say, the "Home" plaque from last week is equally lovely...

  34. I had to smile when I saw your tag as mine was also in my photo but haven't had time to finish it.
    Missed you last week.Glad you are feeling better.
    Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

  35. Hi Anne, nice to have you back. I glad to hear your keeping better. Your tag looks cool and your colouring lovely too. Crafting is probably the best medicine. Your Mr. Mojo is naughty I think he may have been in kahoots with my Mr. Mojo, I'm only just getting back into the crafty swing after he bailed on me too. I hope your Mr.Mojo is found soon, though he may feel you just need to rest a bit longer. Take care. Alexandra x

  36. You're a trooper! Back at it already, I see. Thanks for the shout-out, Anne. You are such a sweetie. Hope you'll have a wonderful weekend.

  37. I missed this week WOYWW (and probably won't be here next week either).

    Glad to see you are taking it easy. I wanted to mention in your other post (Autumn Tag) how very detailed you are and all the steps you do to make such a lovely piece of art!


  38. Well from the looks of your desk - your knee must be doing really good -- loved your Autumn tag too!
