WOYWW and thinking about blogoversaries

Gooooooooood Moooorrrrrning Wednesday! Yup, WOYWW is back again and I'm playing along with Julia at the Stamping Ground. Sorry I didn't do so last week, but although there was lots on my Workdesk, I just didn't have time to share. Sometimes that happens I guess. Mind you, I don't really have time today either but I didn't want to miss it again... last week felt wrong. Really really wrong.

So, today on my desk is my preparation for tonight's class. I'm so excited! Granted, I haven't had the uptake I was hoping for but still, it's started! And we all know that from small acorns, mighty oaks grow! Here, have a look....


I'm loving the colour combo. It's Pumpkin Pie and Rose Red... both Stampin' Up colours. Well, what else would it be? D'oh! I *think* in Stampin' Up! colours nowdays. In fact, a while ago I was trying to describe the colour of a car to Himself. I'd seen it driving on the motorway and thought it was really fab and I quite fancy having one in that colour myself. The only problem was that when he asked me to describe it, all I could come up with was 'Pear Pizzazz'!! The blank look that crossed his face was pure class and I ended up getting out a piece of cardstock just to show him what I meant. Comprehension Dawned. Am I sad or just sad? LOL.

Yesterday I was discussing Blogoversaries with someone in Shimelle's 'Beyond Blogging' class and realised that I'm coming up for my One Hundredth post. It's taken ages to get to that figure because I've always been such a sporadic blogger. So, as I'm blogging more regularly now, I'm expecting to get to that magic 100 sometime later this week or early next week. What would you think to having a Giveaway for that post? I'm going to have a rummage in my vast collection of stash and I'll come up with a goodie bag for a lucky commenter. Does that sound like a good idea? Any particular sort of stash that would appeal to you? I'm sure I've got papers, ink, ribbon and maybe some stamps that could go to a good home. Anything else that you'd like to see in there?? Let me know and I'll have a look to see if I've got it!!

Leave a comment please so I can feel special! Who doesn't like to feel special? Nope, I can't think of anyone... so leave me one and I'll pop round to your blog tomorrow (remember I said I don't have much time today??) and leave a wee comment for you too. Because we're worth it!

  2. Hi Anthea, glad to see I'm not the only one with a "busy" desk. I got myself a Dining room table to craft on thinking I would have plenty of space. That didn't go to plan as all I have now is more to tidy.

  5. Enjoy your class.
    Just read your previous post and like you I wasn't sure what to post but wanted to do both. I now have two blogs, one with all the stuff I like and family stuff and another that's just for "crafty Stuff"

  6. Have fun with the class! And congrats on the upcoming 100th post! I'm just getting into mixed media and have no stamps, very little in the way of rub-ons, etc., so a giveaway with those items sounds wonderful!

  17. Hey Anthea! What a small world indeed! Sorry I didn't really get to talk to you at Jules' training day, it was kinda hectic wasn't it?! Maybe next time (if I'm invited!).

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, you are of course very welcome to case the motorbike card. I've been doing a few others where I've coloured the 'bodywork' of the bike in red, then used glossy accent/diamond effects to make it all shiny; works really well :-)

    oooo, 100 posts, cool! I must check what I'm up to. I'm thinking of doing a giveaway when I get to 100 followers. I can't believe I'm up to 62 since September when I started.

    Your cards are fab (thanks for the swap!) and I will add your blog to my roll of honour so I can see your new posts :-)

  18. Nearly forgot to say - when I first met Jules a few weeks ago, she took one look at my nails and said 'oh look, you've got Melon Mambo on your nails' - so it's not just you!!!

  19. Your desk looks like you have been very busy.
    We don't have Stampin Up here in South Africa, so I am very jealous!

  20. Lovely colour combo you have on your desk there and yes, sometimes it takes a bit of time to build up the numbers and then you look back and wish it was the smaller cosier groups again!! ;)
