Happy 4th Birthday WOYWW

Well, It’s finally week # 208 and the party for What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday’s 4th….yes, I said 4th birthday, can you believe that, is in full swing over at the  The Stamping Ground,  so why not call in and see Julia to see what a phenomenon she created back in 2009.

I can’t claim to have been here right from the start but almost.
It had been going three months when I first came across it and once you start playing along it’s hard to stop, as we all know.

Here’s a link to that very first post.

To celebrate our second birthday I came up with a little ditty, so I thought I would resurrect  it again to celebrate our 4th.  Naturally I altered a word or two, so here you go …………..

Now the party is in full swing and Workdesk Wednesday’s here,
The day we share the projects that we make throughout the year.
But this week’s very special, we've reached a mile stone,
Four years of sharing work desks, starting out at Julia’s home.
So to mark this great occasion, a gift I send to you,
But you must Pay It Forward before you get back to your glue.
Back to the paper, stamps and paints that we all hold so very dear,
And wait in anticipation as we look forward to another year.
Happy What’s on your Workdesk Wednesday!

The picture of my table shows a little pile of ATC’s that will go in the post this morning, together with a couple of parcels, one of which is a long time in coming, sorry Jan, but you’ll see why it’s been as long as it has when it arrives and I hope it’s worth waiting for.

I've already recieved beautiful ASTC's from Annie, Jo and JoZart, thank you ladies, but I'll show them to you next week.

I'll keep it short and sweet this week as there’s lots of people to visit today……..I’m going to try and get round everyone for once……….. so get that kettle no and I’ll be seeing you later.

Thanks once again to Julia for creating such a place to hang out on Wednesdays.
I’ve made some wonderful friends along the way and can only hope that WOYWW lives on for many years to come.

Happy Crafting!

I will be forever grateful to WOYWW for the opportunity it has given me to meet lovely new folk whose paths I probably would never have crossed.....and my life would have been the poorer for it! Thank you for all the wonderful comments and support over the past couple of years :-)
Happy 4th WOYWW!
Hugs, LLJ 9 xx

Hi Sue.

Hi Sue, I really love your ditty, missed it first time round, only been here a year (since I started blogging). You are a clever one! The accordian die on my desk is not complicated really, it is just one piece which is glued together to make a card as long as you want. You are very brave visiting everyone, I only managed that twice. Happy 4th WOYWW Sue and thanks for your visit. Hugs, Anne x #61

I had a plan to hit every desk this week as well, but then yesterday got crazy and today is looking no better. Still, if I chip away at the list I may manage it by next WOYWW!

Hopefully off to the PO myself, if not today then tomorrow!

Happy 4th Birthday, WOYWW! (a little late)
