It's WOYWW 4th Anniversary!!

IT's WOYWW WEEK!!! Happy 4th Anniversary!!  No, there's no ATC's showing on my desk, but!! Anyone who wants to swap,  I'm making them and finishing them off as I sleep!  On my desk this week is that papier-mâché 'pot' from last week, it did work, it's very hard and just  waiting to be painted and made into something.  (Now thinking I might build something 'useful' with more of the 'stuff!') You can see the papier-mâché that's left in the poly bag. It must have been in there for 4 to 5 weeks and is still soft and gooey and ready to use. I'm not here.... taking Compo the wild cat to the vets very early so might not get linked Back later, so hop over to Julia's Stamping ground, and join in!!
You can see the papier-mâché that's left in the poly bag.
***Happy 4th WOYWW?!***


  1. Gosh Lyn, didn't realise paper mache would keep so long - hope you checked for mould (sorry, but it has happened to me). Sorry to hear you are at the vets with Compo, hope he is ok afterwards.
    Can you email me your details for the Flat Susan journey please.
    Hugs, Neet (

  2. Hey Lyn I'd be happy to swap with you and have added you in my list your bowl looks good and I'm horrible at waiting for things to dry I'd take a hair dryer to it and with my luck it would crack lol
    send me your snail mail here elusionary60 at
    hugs Nikki

  3. Compo the Cat.
    only you could come up with such a clever name.
    love ya lady.
    cat s.

  4. YEA!! Well, at least a small yea. Sorry about Compo, but I'm your PIF. I'll send you an e-mail where you can reply to me with your address. I'm thrilled that I can send to you, because it's always fun to visit your blog.

    1. How fantastic!!! I'll send you one too!

    2. Haven't heard from you. Did you get my e-mail? I hope so, because I linked it from your blog.

  5. The bowl turned out really well and you have loads more to play with! Hope the trip to the vet isn't too traumatic! :( Happy 4th WOYWW Anniversary! Annette #2

  7. It's fascinating stuff isn't it...and it will be a very useful pot..ask Winnie the Pooh, he was an expert in pots. You get the WOYWW prize for most consistent desk and least sleep!

    1. Thank you!!! I know burning the candle at both ends doesn't always work... but there was only one day, when I didn't go to bed at all!(Still didn't get things done!!)

  8. Happy WOYWWversary,Lyn. Hope your atc'ing in your sleep is successful!!

  9. Hope Compo is OK. The pot came out really well, never knew papier mache would keep so thanks for the tip! Happy 4th WOYWW. Pam#36

  10. I'm amazed you can find the papier-maché on your desk LOL. Hope Compo is OK. BJ#76

  11. Hi Lyn
    I can't wait to see what you do with the bowl it is a lovely shape. Does the paper mache not start to smell if it has been in the bag that long?
    Wishing you and everyone a Very Happy WOYWW today

    1. Compo is doing well and the cat's home arelloking for a new owner/home for him, they think he is a lovely cat and the best thing since sliced bread!
      The bowls all look a bit 'posh' Mo, mine's a bot like some thing you'd find in a rubbish pit!

  13. Wow that's what I call a busy desk! Have a great WOYWW4 MMx #85

    Nice to see the paper mache is moving along!

    Not sure about my availability of ATCs - this is all too stressful - don;t want to promise then have all mine go via comments on my blog so what's a WOYWWer to do? DOH!

    Happy 4th Birthday, WOYWW!

  18. It’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

    Your desk looks as busy as ever Lyn. Don’t think I’ve played with papier-mâché since I was at school many, many years ago.

    Enjoy your Wednesday snooping on this very special Day
    Happy Crafting!

  29. Hello Lyn, happy 4th anniversary to you :) Your desk is a crafty voyeur's delight. Look forward to seeing what you do to decorate the bowl. Compo seems a perfect name for the wee cat - I hope you the perfect home is found for him once he's been 'done'. Thanks for sharing the digi gnome - after the Chelsea Flower Show I suspect gnomes are going to be trendy again :) Hope you've had a lovely WOYWW, Elizabeth x #155

  30. Snazzy desk today with all the goodies and your new handmade pot. #47

  31. what a lovely, busy desk you have just ripe for a good old rummage.

    Happy WOYWW 4

Thanks for stopping by> And I only have the pink gun because I was annoyed with some of my cards falling apart after a while, and I had a 40% coupon from Michaels. (Oh, and use those coupons for the refills! LOL!) Happy Belated WOYWW!
