WOYWW 156 I've lost my crown !

Hi world
Yep that time of the week again, time for  the creative show  that is 'what's on our work desk wednesday'.
You must know what it is all about by now otherwise you wouldn't be reading this.
If not check out the madness here stamping ground

Anyway, it is the 3 year anniversary this week.
I first discovered the blog on week 80, I know this 'coz I looked back.... out of interest.
I also tried to track down the first post, which was a little sketchy I must say.
I don't think Julia knew what she had unleashed back then  check it out here  the first post   It is the same crazy Julia,  just with more chat (too little time now for much chat.... Please keep it short she says now... ok I will try so here's my desk

Not much going on, just the end of making my ATC's for the anniversary swop.
They are un-ashamedly patriotic (well it is  jubilee weekend )

It you would like one please e- mail me your address and I will send you mine for the swop.
They were all going to have the stamped crown on, but you know what those pesky clingy things are like...... they get lost, hence my ATC's are all slightly different.

The bracelets from last week are still waiting to be mended
 craft stamper is still waiting to be read ... before the next one arrives on Friday.
There is a book on making a Tiara...... for D2 's wedding.
 Oh, and  yes that is a bucket of Tim Holtz distress markers in the background....waiting to be played with. . .  but don't tell the handyman, but they were a bargain. . .  what's a girl to do !
I hope it was brief enough
Well, lets see how many desks I can get to this week, I know it won't be all of them, please leave a comment so I know you called by, I will try and get to everyone and some extras especially if you are joining in the ATC swop.
happy hopping ......janet


  1. Oh this day is all very exciting. I see I get to send you my ATC for today's PIF! Can I be cheeky and ask for one of those gorgeously British ones in return? I think they are fantastic, crowned or not, they are lovely. I will email you to get your postal address.

  2. Well Janet you have been busy! Gosh all those ATC's I have never ever made one. Well you will be pleased to know you have shamed me into it at last! Hugs Susan #81

  13. Thanks for the peek at the first WOYWW post. Somehow never thought to sneak past and see what it was like "in the day." Love the patriotic ATCs! Darn that crown for going into hiding. I'm sure you'll find it in the most ridiculous of spots. Great desk shot. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one with things still waiting to be done on the desk. It happens all the time! In my tidy piles I have things from many, many weeks ago!

  14. Fun ATCs! Enjoy this week's WOYWW!

  15. Hi janet! How wonderful to be working in the craft dept of a department store! Are you playing all day? :^) I would love a souvenir of the jubilee weekend! (Pls email me your address at patsy.paterno (at) ) Patsy from

  16. I LOVE those patriotic ATCs and am thrilled I was given the chance to "meet" you through this wild and fun blog hop we take each week. I had to read the first WOYWW from Julia again, too. Happy 3rd WOYWW Anniversary from #2.

  17. Great post, loved the link to the first WOYWW as I never did see it. You joined in the week before I did. Your ATCs are brilliant - I've gone down the patriotic route too ... it's all this Jubilee frenzy, you can't help but be influenced :) The latest issue of Craft Stamper dropped through my letterbox this morning and just had to leaf through it ... I've promised myself a more thorough read through at the weekend. Hope today has gone well and that the rest of the week will be good too. Elizabeth x #96

  18. I love love love your ATC's, wish I was taking part now.

  30. Hi Janet, I thought I was here before? But I guess I wasn't. Did we already agree to swap ATCs? (If we did, then I have your address, if we didn't, then there must be another Janet.) Sorry, I've been visiting so many desks I'm quite confused now :)
    Happy 3rd Birthday WOYWW!

  31. Fab ATCs. I'm happy to swap with you. I've made a few more yesterday and hope to get them finished today to send so please send me your address to and I will then return the favour :-)
