Happy Birthday to you!

Congratulations on two years of WOYWW? I bet when you first came up with the idea Julia, you had no idea of what it would grow into! Such a simple idea, but so utterly fascinating to anybody as nosey as me.

Did you know that one of the reasons I wanted to have my own blog, was so that I could join in with the weekly peek into everyone’s crafty corner of the world. I shared my desk for the very first time only 10 weeks ago and now I’m hooked.

Sharing my craft space has had an unexpected side effect. I put things away when I have finished with them, which means when I feel like making something there is always room to do just that. Unless of course my daughter gets there first!

I have been more creative in the last couple of months, than the last year and that has to be a good thing. It has been wonderful to find new and inspiring blogs and a whole bunch of lovely people to meet out there.

Here’s to many more years of desk hopping. Thankyou Julia for masterminding the whole marvellous plan. Happy Birthday WOYWWers!

good for you that WOYWW has encouraged you to put things away. sometimes it does for me too but as can be seen from past posts, sometimes the mess is just too much! but then, WOYWW surely has inspired creativity, so never mind about the mess! happy anniversary!
