Happy Anniversary to all of you WOYWW participants!  (Just a quick note that I don't have any ATCs to swap, sorry!)

My desk is ALMOST in use this week!  I am putting the final touches on my last assignment and then I can play!  We go on holibobs to Featherdown Farm very shortly and the children and I are making our own Smash style books to take with us.  Its a good way to use up the papers that come free with certain magazines that you don't particularly want to use yourself :-)

I've got my Bind It All out but I've never actually had chance to use it as yet so we have to change our plans rather!

This little lot here is from the lovely Kirsty for a Sian's "Very Big Swap of Very Small Things".  I am absolutely in love with the big buttons and the teeny red ones too.  Thank you Kirsty!  My parcel is on its way to Deb in the States.

We've been busy with birthdays here too including a bowling party for Louis's best friend.

I hope everyone enjoys their swapping and the crop if they are able to attend that too.  In the meantime, don't forget to link up with Julia to see the rest of the desks.  Happy crafting.

Bye for now


  1. That's a fun bowling Jacob loved that!! Ah, the happy days of being seven...I miss that, you know, mine are 17 and 20 and all grown up....sigh...
    Love that little pile of sparkly buttons yumminess that will be winging its way to Deb, she'll have fun with that little lot!
    Enjoy your holidays!
    Happy 4th WOYWW!

  5. Hi there Lisa-Jane, you are the first name above me with an asterix but I'm a tad confused by your comment about not being able to SWAP - does that include not being able to partner with me?

  6. I love my bind-it-all and you have reminded me that I haven't used it for a while! Great card. Have fun and happy holidays x

  7. A busy desk, have a lovely holiday and happy WOYWW 4th birthday.


  8. Hi Lisa-Jane

  10. 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.

    That’s a nice, busy desk you have there Lisa-Jane and all those lovely goodies. I can see why you fell in love with those big buttons.

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

  15. Aw, baby smash books, what an awesome idea, specially if the weather turns a bit mean for an afternoon. The ATC thing wasnt meant to be a pressure, so I'm glad to read that you didn't try to squeeze anything else in, and absolutely no apology necessary, really!

  16. I am always amazed when I read that someone has a bind it all and haven't used it! Poor little BIA... honestly, they are very easy to use, practice making some little notebooks and you will get into the swing of it in no time at all! Happy WOYWW4 Anniversary! Annette #2

  17. For 4 years now i've been dropping by,
    To view some desks and see what I can spy,
    Will it be a card, some stash or ATC,
    whatever it is, thanks for sharing it,
    Have a Happy WOYWW 4th Anniversary

  26. Oh that card is adorable, Lisa-Jane. I love that you used the black button as the bowling clever!
