WOYWW #259

Good Wednesday, all. Almost there-1 week to our 5th Birthday. Wouldn't be the first time in my life I've been accused of acting like a five year old, lol. And now, three whole days to the Anniversary crop, yay! Looking forward to meeting people from last year, and some new faces.
 So, pic of the week: assorted stuff from the ATC frenzy of the weekend- actual finished ATC's out of shot. Have to admit to getting a little panicky last week- not even started, and not a clue what to do. I'd been waiting for inspiration to strike- more like it had gone on strike :). Then, a comment I spotted during the rounds last week (can't remember who's blog it was on,) from LLJ about dandelion clocks provided the much needed light bulb moment. Jan, you are a sanity saver! There was a lot of winging it involved, but I do a lot of winging it, so I'm well practised at that- but I had the basic idea to get started. Finished them Monday afternoon. Phew.
 I'll be taking them to the Crop, and anyone not going who would like to swap, e-mail me your addy and I'll put one in the post. There's an e-mail link in my left hand side bar.
 I will be bringing  my dies again, this year I will definitely remember the Nesties, lol, and I'll also bring my embossing folders so bring your cardstock/paper!  If anyone has seen me use any stamps they'd like to get images of, let me know and I'll bring them too. Here is an idea of the dies etc, from last years post.
 Not sure what I'm bringing to actually do- fortunately we've got a 4x4, rofl.
 By the way, Beloved Hubby is a bit of a Tech wiz, so anyone with laptop/pc problems, bring them along with you, he'll sort you out. Have a great day everyone, see you later.

Morning,Shaz. I also have a 4x4 but it seems to be permanently full. My bag is packed - the crafting one anyway. I am taking the Gelli plate and my stencils, and a couple of blending mats and brayers to play with on the day. You have reminded me that I need to update the laptop before I pack that for the weekend. Then I suppose I should think of a few clothes as well, as well as my National Trust card, which has vanished. See you soon. xxx Maggie #35

Oh you're so generous! I'll be on duty to cut then, and will prolly bring my box of scraps..you never know it may be reduced a bit! Hate to and almost can't believe to think that the ATCs were making you panic - thought that was just me!!

Helen said...

You're setting hubby up as pc guru... can't get mine on the train!! Looking forward to seeing you again, and I think (think!) I know what I'll be bringing.. Helen 8

Well, I've never been accused of being a sanity saver before - it's quite the opposite normally!!! Anyway, glad to have been of service and I look forward to see them, you and himself again :-)
Hugs, LLJ 21 xx

Krisha said...

Hi Shaz,
Funny where inspiration comes from ..eh?

Would love to trade ATC, if any are left. I know it is getting late to lay claim to extras.

From your comment last week: This past Sunday I had my 64th birthday, so your still a baby to me....LOL

Chrysalis said...

Well done on finishing your ATCs, Shaz, and have a great time at the crop. Hugs, Chris # 17 x

Nan G said...

Sounds like you'll need more than a 4x4....like maybe a caravan of 4x4s to haul your room stash to the crop. LOL loving the colors I see in the scraps of leftover ATC makings. Have a fab time at the crop. Don't forget the Cuttlebug or bigshot! Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #10

BJ said...

Have fun at the crop - really ought to go one year. BJ#77

Those are some gorgeous papers you've got there on your desk. I'm sure the ATCs are lovely.

Have a great time at the crop!

Happy Woyww,

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Shaz Happy WOYWW. So glad you got the ATCs completed and oh what fun you're all about to have at the Crop...envious I don't live over there and would surely attend. Hugs to all you busy girls, cheers and enjoy RobynO#19

Hammers said...

I had panicked about ATC's too, so I can totally empathise. Mine are actually ready and it was a lot of fun making them. I love that you are so excited about the crop - I wish I could be there. I'll email you my details, so we can swap ATC's - if you are game. Cx #76

Hettie said...

It seems a few of us (me included) have had mini panics over the ATCs this year. It is getting harder isn't it? That is the challenge of it all after all.
Funny we have matching desks!! Bet yours hasn't been trimmed on the corners to fit into the ceiling though! LOL!
See ya Saturday
PS Don't suppose Hubby has a 15.4 Acer laptop screen looking for a new home? I managed to drop the puter and it has a very crackled screen now. Gutted!

Christine said...

Good news for the DH - do the men have a section of their own? Shall have repack my bag ... see if I can fit my Calibur in!!
Look forward to meeting up

Hi Shaz.
I expect you are already down there for the crop - and enjoying a fabulous time with LLJ. Have a great day tomorrow. Those of us poor souls who are not going will definitely need photos, descriptions and mementos of your day...
