WOYWW, Album & More ATC Swaps.

Happy WOYWW! First, here's my secret thingy I showed you a peek of last week. It was a sort of a 'This Is Your Life' picture Album for Hubby's birthday, filled with as many pictures of him as I could find, from a baby, to a mean teen, up until now! Still loads of spaces to add more, want to also add some words. Just a few pages here...and for those of you with beady eyes, the cooking one....it's a pinney!!! (he's wearing his Michelangelo's David Apron... )

(Of course when I typed out the post all the pictures looked nice and neat, side by side and in a nice short row, now they look muddled up in a really long row... I'll just press this and hope that makes them line up properly!!) Yay!!
Next.. Some of the ATC's (and a fantastic card from Neesie! Love the smooth shiny card it's printed on too, like matt photo card...must get some!) which I received from some fabulously talented WOYWWER's over the last few weeks... I've sent out quite a few (some I've only just realised to non woywwers too! Stamp a big L on my forehead!)
So, if you haven't received yours yet, let me know, as I was away most of last week, I may be thinking I've sent it when I haven't! (Sieve head and very forgetful!) or I may have sent someone else two lots! (Sieve head and very forgetful!)

  3. Your book is gorgeous Lyn - and I wanted to let you know that I LOVE your stories of "the cat that isn't yours" - you'll have to leave me a link with a picture so I can take a peek!

    By the way, what is that new gadget on your sidebar? First time I've seen it so I'm not sure how it works!

    Have a great day!

  7. What a wonderful idea for you're hubby. It will be such a special treasure and so thoughtful.
    I started to do a similar album for our 25 years together but had to issue an IOU with it because I never got to finish it...still haven't and we'll be celebrating 33 years on Saturday!!! EEK! I know my sums don't add up because I'm only 19!
    I'm so thrilled that you're card arrived safely all that way and that you like it ;D
    Thanks so much for the mention too.
    Have fun with WOYWW ~ Enjoy! Neesie #26

  24. Wow. That album looks like it took some time :) Why "rubbish??" Funny I was reading an article just the other day about artists and how they always make less of their work by saying "Oh I JUST did X.." like it took 5 minutes when they slaved over it for days I think he will love it and you should be proud of it. And say so!

    That sounded more like a lecture (or an annoying life-coach pep talk) then it was meant to. But my point is that you may be looking at it one way and he will def. look at it and see the love.

    Happy WOYWW!!

  30. Lyn, Thanks so much for your comments, I have now turned off the word veri thingy and monitoring so it should be easier, and the comment box should be easier to see on the blog now too. I know that on my website you can't comment but I can't change that "wail" so all comments have to go through the blog. Thanks for the compliment re the book cover though! Sian xx

  33. What a brilliant album for your hubby, but what with his David on show and LLJ's hubbys utensils on display I'm all of a flutter now, lol! Lovely idea though. Beautiful atc's too, very cool. I laughed at you keeping worms in the house!!

    Hugs

  34. Hi Lyn,

    A confession -- I enlarged the photos before reading your text. And I must say, I noticed the Michaelangelo apron right off! hee hee I even had to tilt my head just a bit to make sure I was seeing correctly ;-)



    Your ATCs that you've received are great. That was so much fun! I'm not linking up today as I forgot it was Wednesday..... don't ask.

    Hugs,
    Kay

  35. Hi Lyn, I love your album and I think you hubby will too, so much work has gone into it. Love your card and ATCs too. Anne x #43

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh my what a great album chock full of pictures. If I made an album for my honey it would be like 3 pages long with a mere one photo per page. Got a giggle at the David apron. Great ATCs that you have received. I'm glad I'm not the only sieve head around these parts. I recently hit up a lady for her address and she said she'd gladly give it to me if I wanted to send her more but she already got mine. That's nice, but now who didn't? AH well....

    ReplyDelete
  37. OMG, that apron is a hoot!!!!!!!!!!!! Too funny! I wouldn't have gone looking for it if you hadn't said something, lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

  38. Love your gift to your husband! Looks great! I bet he loves it! :)

  42. I admit I laughed and laughed at your hubby's apron. And I thought the album was awesome. I enlarged it in order to see it, something I can do now that most of Wednesday is gone.

    BTW, I am in LOVE with that elephant. It is beyond gorgeous. Even though I'm a rocking horse kind of gal, I am still drawn to this beauty.

  53. Hi Spyder - unfortunately Blogger is playing silly bloggers again... yet again... and I can't see your pictures properly - some are loading but most are not. I'll try again later... Your ablum for your hubby is a great idea. I was going to do something similar for mine, but it sort of bit the dust when Christmas appeared last year and I havent' done any more on it since.

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog - show is now over and although I didn't sell anything much, it was a great day and I had fun demonstrating. I'm now knackered. Oh well. Glad you liked what I'd done. I'll be blogging about the show once I've got over the exhaustion a bit and had a chance to sort through my boxes and get some photos uploaded.

    Sorry to miss WOYWW this week - just too much on, I'm afraid!
