WOYWW 260 blink and you'll miss it

Hi Peeps...... warning photo heavy post!

well what a week it has been.....WOYWW 5th anniversary and the WOYWW crop (I didn't go so, no pictures from me).

And the long awaited wedding of DD3 (on sunny sunday  )

sweeties anyone?

If you don't know what WOYWW is..... then shame on you and get over to the to check it out.
A big round of applause to Julia for organising this weekly amusement arcade  for the last 5 years .... did you ever imagine how it would turn out 5 years later?
Anyway enough chat here's the photos...... and lots of them

My desk on Tuesday evening.... carnage. . .  it looks worse in real life.

Both sides. . . . just finished making the WOYWW 5 sign at the top.
I am taking part in the ATC swap, I have a few spare so if you would like one and haven't told me yet please e mail me and I will see how many I have left.

I received this one last week  from our lovely leader Julia Dunnit herself

And this one from non other than LLJ

This is mine ..... the theme is mess is more . . . . . fun
Finally a few crafty makes from the wedding that have been under wraps

My beaded bag and hat
Necklace and earing, which I finished on  the day!

The menu with a fabulous picture drawn by Erin's half sister.

The sweetie themed table plan.... names have been removed to protect the innocent ha ha!

The hot pink leopard print chest to put wedding cards in

The card I made for the happy couple (made  this afternoon....!)

Finally a picture of my beautiful Daughter and GD

Don't you just love the hot pink suede shoes..... and the chair.
All those months of planning, then..... blink and you'll miss it.

Oh well that's done,
 I'm off to visit as many of you as time allows. Thanks for visiting.........
Please leave your linky  number and I visit you back.
Ps I will be posting out my ATCs today and probably Friday or Saturday for late comers :-)

  2. Janet, I love the sweets table. You went all out on the candy and goodies. And those pink shoes are adorable. So is the dress and your beautiful daughter.

    Saw your comment. I made it clear to Julia, I want NOTHING in return. This is my way of giving back. I can only afford to do this once a year, so I do it up as big as possible. So, please, you made the ATCs possible this year with your awesome rocking horse stamp. That was more than enough, let alone all the other wonderful goodies you gifted me with. So, please, I really don't want anything in return. BTW, the ATC you get will look very much like the one in the photo.

  3. Lovely pics from the wedding - the sweetie table was amazing!! As were your bag and hat...clever gal :-)
    Thanks for your ATC too, I love it...long may the party continue!!
    Hugs, LLJ xxxx

  4. Oh Janet what gorgeous pics of a happy day....and what fun too :-) thanks for sharing them. Happy Anniversary's to many more.

  7. Too much to see! Doesn't DD look gorgeous! Best reason ever for missing the crop, although we did miss You. Tucked an ATC into the envelope and thank you for mine - its lovely.

    After all that excitement, have a relaxing day :)

  9. Oh Janet, Lucy and Erin looked beautiful! I saw a blink of a phot of you and the Handyman on facebook and you looked gorgeous - what a fab dayit must have been. Stress not about Elizabeth's of yours went in the envelope to her . Going back for another look at the hot pink accessories!

  10. What a pretty bride and what a 'fun' themed wedding.
    Mother of the bride did well to get her outfit ready in time (thinking necklace and ear-rings here) but I bet she looked stunning. Nothing like adrenelin to get you there in the end.LOL
    Hugs and Happy 5th WOYWW - Neet 11 x

  11. Nothing wrong with a messy desk, it means you've been productive which is obvious from all the lovely goodies on show, great atc's and other wedding makes.
    Happy Desk Day xo

    Happy 5th WOYWW Birthday and thanks so much for your friendship and fun through it all.

  16. Thank you so much for your lovely ATC. You put so much thought into your design and I am amazed at how many very varied crafts we all have within the group. I hope that you will be getting mine in an envelope from Julia. If there isn't one from me, please let me know and I will send you one separately. If you think your crafting area is mayhem, you should see my craft room and the centre of the living room (in fact, the whole room) where I have just dumped all the things I took to the Crop on Saturday. Have a great week. xx Maggie #49

I truly can't remember if I put one in the envelope for you at the crop - I recall dithering at the time. But I have plenty so just shout if there isn't one and you would like one. Happy WOYWW5, Cindy #5
