Wednesdays have been so special since I started blogging back in April 2013 and Mo, I think it was, told me about WOYWW I've tried not to miss it and this week it's my first time ever as a Guest Designer so I hope you won't mind me featuring what I made for the Country View Crafts Challenge. The theme is 'Letters'. You may not have time with all the Wednesday desk hopping, but if you have a moment, please look Here at Country View Crafts challenge and all the great DT inspiration from their regulars and guests! And if you're stopping by via Country View Crafts and you're wondering what WOYWW stands for, do pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground for a sneaky peek at craft desks all over the world and see why I always look forward to Wednesdays! Anyway this box is on my desk on my washing machine lid in the conservatory right now, where it's light enough to take photos!
I'm already using it to store my precious letters from my friend, Kay who lives in Madrid. Most of my faraway friends email, but Kay sends me real letters! I am always so excited when they plop on my mat, full of news, humour and wisdom! The box I used was a gift from my dear friend, Dianne who also lives far, far away in Canada and who shares my magpie love of collecting and creating! We met through WOYWW.
Finally last week I told my WoYWW friends about some stamps my son found in the bureau he was sorting. It was actually my old bureau that had been moved into his room and he now needs to empty it, so we can replace it with a chair. While sorting, he found some stamps a friend of mine had asked me to design a few years ago. She had found someone online who could make up stamps to order quite cheaply, Unfortunately this lady is no longer in business so I don't have a clue where I could go if I wanted any more made. There is a whole box of my doodlings made into stamps, but I didn't have enough Ez mount, so I've only experimented with one so far and here it is- deep breath - eek, hope you like it - it's the tag on the right
