WOYWW - Kittens!

Hello Everyone at WOYWW! This is now officially my favourite day of the week, when I get to spend time seeing what's being created on the work-tables of the world without having so much as to flutter a wing. Thank you so much Julia at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/ for giving us all so much fun. I am miserable to discover that I won't be able to join everyone for the anniversary because I will be on holiday on the 29th May; I couldn't believe it when I looked it up in my diary! I really wanted so much to join in the ATC swap because many many moons ago, long long before I started blogging I used to look longingly at the ATCs on the internet for hours, wishing I could be part of something like that and join in a swap. Anyway, Julia has very kindly said I can swap with her so many thanks for that, Julia - can't tell you how happy that's made me.
I can't wait to see what people have been up to this week. I finished my exploding box - hurray - some of you said you would be interested to see how it turned out; if you have the time to go to http://magpieheaven.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/shadow-dance-arty-review.html you can see. I actually managed better photos of this than I thought possible from a photographically challenged magpie because I took them in our conservatory and learned how to use the zoom!
 This week I've got all my stuff out to first finish off a tag for the Craft Barn Alpha Challenge which is the letter K. This is the first time I've entered. I am what is called a 'newbie'. At the same time I can't wait to start some ATCs. I am playing with the idea of the madness of Alice in WOYWWland, but I won't say any more than that for now except it includes cups of tea, rabbits worried they're going to be late and magpies perched on top of towers!
Again it was really grey this morning when I took this photo. Kelly sent me some fantastic hints about photography on grey days but so far I've not been able to buy the kind of foam she suggested to make a light box. I'll keep looking and meanwhile pray for sunny days! Anyway, here is my kitten label waiting for me to work on it, on its little easel so I can get an idea of how it looks. In the background are my ATCs. My Frescos are out and my distress inks and blender and I may just have time to do a little something before the world descends on me! Have a great day everyone. I'll try to fly by as many of you as I can when I can snatch minutes during the day!

  2. I thought I was going to be away for the anniversary and I was thinking of ways to participate. I thought of making a post and then asking WOYWWers to link me up! The one who remembers will get a gift from me! I think someone will be nice enough to do it too! Alice of WOYWWland sounds grand!

  15. Sweet Kitten :) I made a light box by covering the inside with white paper cut holes thru them and then had white tissue paper on the outside took amazing photos. I so miss it as we don't have the space for it now but at least it only cost a little bit to make so no worries

  16. Hi Julie. The box turned out perfect! And no worries on the foam core board. You can also use white mat board or drape a white cloth over anything. It's the combination of the white 'walls' and the lighting from all directions that does the trick. You could even drape a chair in white cloth and position a floor lamp to shine down from above. Hope these help. But for now, we can see your creations and that's what's important. ;-) Hugs & Creative Blessings - Kelly #124

  20. Glad you've gotten "addicted" to WOYWW -- it's a very benign, perhaps even healthy(?) addiction. :-) I like your colorful tag. Happy WOYWW (on Friday -- speaking of being late for an important date, ha!) ~ Laura #154 (bookworm.typepad.com/)
