WOYWW 2nd Anniversary!

Okay, you've seen mess before but this has to be the worse mess ever!! Been sooo busy flying here, zooming there and shooting up to the hospital to see dad, that there really hasn't been time to craft - or tidy up, but this week is the week! The week all woywwers have been waitin' for!
and the week most of us will be joining in with PiF (pay it forward)
or play it forward or pass it forward or...anyhow...)
I did try to make all sorts of things for this, I'm the sort of person who likes to know what everyone else is doing first... so, all my makes ended up in the bin and last week I gave up all together and decided this would be my first WOYWW miss in well over a year (about 70 odd) because I knew I'd never get something done in time, but I did, and here it is...
***Oops, Sorry no!! I didn't realise you weren't meant to show your PIF so I've taken it off, but have no time to change the you'll just have to imagine what my 'thing' is! Oops! I can still spy it! There it is, just behind that what-not and no, to the left of the ... (heh heehee) !
My little 'thing' started life, I believe, as a black posh watch box, a throw-away from one of my 'peoples'. Yep. It was in the bin.
It's been seen in lots of WOYWW's, sitting on a shelf with cards and atc's peeping through its window.
The outside is still 'sticky'. (Painted with Acrylic.) I was going to add a little awning, fake bricks and maybe bay trees or rose brushes to the front...but that's all in my head and not yet fact, anyway, if I do that now, (it's gone two in the morning) there'll be no freebie this week! If you hate it, I'll understand... after all, can you imagine what it will look like once it's gone through the post!! (Looking at these pictures that's not too difficult to imagine) So after doing most of this in the last few hours, my craft room really is in a state!
I knocked my 'inches' and my Promarkers all over the floor and then trod on a very fat glue tube... ohooo, I've just had a thought, that would make a great website name... GlueTube, it does sound familiar! I bags it! Darn, someone already has. Ohoo I like the ladybird! Very clever web page, if you click his finger wobbles! You're forgiven for nicking my idea...right, where was I??
Ah, if you want to know just what's going on, hop over to the Stamping Ground right now and find out!
This is on timer, I'm at work... I'll be around as soon as we're back from The Hospital. (yay they might be letting him out soon!) Thank you for stopping by!! Happy WOYWW Anniversary!

  19. I’m making a special effort to get around everyone as it’s a special week this week.

    Well you have an interesting desk to say the least this week Lyn but I think under the circumstances we’ll forgive you the clutter.
    I’m glad you persevered with your PIF though, it would have been such a shame for you to miss out.

    Happy WOYWW 2nd Anniversary and …………….
    Happy Crafting!

  20. What exciting and creative mess... so much stash on show, I want to rifle through it all... have a great week

  21. What a mess - I can talk ey!!

    I am sooo happy this week as thanks to Frankie I can now leave comments!

    Happy WOYWW!!

    Hope your Dad is on the mend pretty soon.


  22. Lyn, drawing beach huts at three in the moronic (spell check for my typo of morning) and referring to pictures that are not there, and stealing shots of MY DESK and calling it your own can mean only one thing,

    you are taking the wrong kind of meds...

    come see me - my PIF never got removed, I hopelessly failed to follow instruction (despite their simplicity) and my desk has disseminated ( dissappeared - speallchecker is NOT hleping) -stolen by a spider woman...

    WOYWW brought you crazy ladies into my life for that I am eternally (cannot use the alternative spelling suggestion for THAT) grateful, JD is a blessing ...

    See you later crazy spider


  23. Happy WOYWW! Glad dad is on the mend ;)
    xoxo Sioux
