WOYWW - Happy Birthday to you

Good morning and a very happy fourth Birthday to all the WOYWWers out there. It is hard to believe that this has been going on for 4 whole years and I think I joined somewhere around the 6 months mark and have been hooked ever since!
In the four years we have laughed and cried together, I have learnt so much from so many of you, you have made me buy things that I did not even know I needed and you have shamed me into cleaning my dreadfully messy desk once or twice. Some of you have even help me find my glasses on that desk. Most of all, I have found some fantastic friends through WOYWW and I love my weekly visit to the many talented artists out there. Some weeks life gets in the way and there are not many visits at all, but I am always forgiven and welcomed back when life finally calms down.

  17. 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.

    WOYWW certainly has had an effect on the Tertia because you’re starting to repeat yourself, Lol....And what a fab desk, as always!

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

  19. You have always been an inspiration to me over these past few years, and I always look forward to our visits. Your art is simply stunning and your friendship is beyond reproach.

    This was a very heartfelt post, and a bit of a tearjerker, too. You put it quite nicely how much WOYWW means to all of us.

    Happy WOYWW4 from # 17.

    To view your desk and see what I can spy,

    whatever it is, thanks for sharing it,
    Have a Happy WOYWW 4th Anniversary
