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!

I can barely focus on the desk when those cookies are just out of view. You naughty diet detractor!! Well done on the PIF.
