WOYWW - Week 207

Hello Blog Friends and Fellow WOYWWers

Firstly, my thoughts go out to all those affected by the devastating tornado in Oklahoma.

My apologies for not being to join in as often as I would like, the building works took much longer than expected and I have not been able to spend as much time in my Craft Room.  All finished now though, just waiting for the new furniture to arrive.

If you are wondering what WOYWW is then please follow this LINK and Julie will explain all to you.

So no picture of my desk today but I thought I would show you a few cards that lovely blog friends have sent me recently instead.


Top left is from my blog and crafty pal Mo (Almo), top right is from Maureen (Scrappymo) with whom I did a swap, bottom left is from Jenny (Buttons) who sent me this lovely card to cheer me up and far right the card and ATC are from my blog friend, Rachel with whom I also did a swap.  They are all beautiful and I am so lucky to have such wonderful friends.

Next, is a quick photo of our new Garden Room which has replaced our old Conservatory.  This is the room that caused so many problems............ but we love it now, even without much furniture.


That's all from me, looking forward to next week's 4th WOYWW anniversary!  I will try and get around to as many Woywwers as possible today.  Take care.  Big hugs, Anne xx

  32. Thanks for sharing all these beautiful cards, and you are VERY lucky to have such talented cardmakers for friends. Each card was so different yet each was so wonderfully made. Also enjoyed the pic of your lovely new room. That pot of tulips is so colorful. You will enjoy seeing such bright spots when you have a dreary, rainy day. Glad you are getting nearly to the end of your project. I can just guess it must have been so frustrating at times. But all worth it at the finish. TFS & hugs.

  39. Some lovely cards there Anne and your garden room looks well worth all that work and building mess. Love your leather chair as well, could sit there all day looking out to the garden, but then I would never get any craft done.
    Thanks for visiting and I hope we both get chance for more crafting now.
