 All these ATCs are ready in their envelopes [some have already been posted] but I still have a few more up for grabs if you'd like a little hug from me :-)  Just email me your details to ....... wipso@toucansurf.com........and we can swap  :-)

......and on my desk today is......

.....wait for it.....

.....some Dumfing!!!!!!  Yes I'm actually being creative.  :-) :-)

It's months and months  since I felt creative....mainly because all my creative materials are tucked away in a box or 20 ready for the ?????move????  I felt the need to dumf!!!  I've rummaged through some of my stash and found just enough materials to play with and was totally lost in creativeness for several hours [no twins this week as it's half term hols here so was determined to use my time well].  What wonderful therapy it was too....now all I need to do is the machine embroidery on it all and maybe a few tiny beads and who knows there just might be a set of cards to show you soon.

Well folks, that's it from me for today.  Short and sweet just how the boss likes it.  I want to get round a few desks now so will love you and leave you.  Have a wonderful day celebrating our amazing blogging bunch.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Happy 5th. I'm glad you were able to get creative. That's lovely dumfing work you have there. I'm glad yours came with hugs. I guess I should have sent a few hugs your way, since you need them probably more than I right now (grin). Happy WOYWW from #22. Wow, I've NEVER been that low on the post before (grin).

Neet said...

Oh Annie - what a lot of atc's you have done - puts me to shame. Glad my name is up there and hope yours arrives today.
Think I need a dumfing lesson - ages since I did any so I think i should make a list and work through it of things I intend to do.
Hugs and Happy WOYWW 5th birthday - Neet 11

Hi Annie,
Hehe, I'm already on your list to swap ATCs, AND, as your name is next after mine, (on Julia's list), I will now send you two ATCs! But I don't think I have your address, although I think I might have your sister's? Oh dear, I really must get my act together ASAP!
Happy WOYWW Anniversary!

I love seeing the very different ways in which everyone crafts. that is what makes this group of deskers so special. I hope your move goes well from now on and is completed very soon. xx Maggie#49

HAPPY 5th WOYWW..it's been so fun to be part of your creativiy and sharing of family fun and photos. I love the row of pretty red flowers. I wish I lived closer to learn how to do this "dumf"ing" thing.
I've had fun this am with coffee girls and showing your ATC's..here we are so excited to see the "Across the Pond" fun things. Your things always seem "Special" . Wishing you a quick and easy move.

Julia Dunnit said...

Well Annie, that dumfing n your desk is a sight for sore eyes, how lovely to read that you've rummaged and dumfed and lost yourself a little. Perfect way to celebrate a WOYWW!

Caro said...

How lovely to be dumfing again! I so love the effects you create with it. Thanks for sharing and joining in the anniversary fun! Happy 5th WOYWW Anniversary. Caro x (#43)

Helen said...

my atc to you is on its way via Julia too...hopefully next year you 'll be so well settled in your new home you'll be able to have a mini-break and come along to the crop - would love to meet up! Glad you are able to dumf again! Helen 7

KatzElbows said...

It is tricky when your supplies are packed. I'm slowly unpacking mine after years in storage. If you can look at it as a challenge to your creativity it won't make you miss your stash less, but it might help you make a few little things.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. I feel I know you even though I guess most people would say I don't.

Happy WOYWW,
Rachel #49

Anne said...
