woyww - post and projects

I apologies in advance for all the photo's but I have had such lovely gifts arrive in the post.  Beautiful bunting from Lunch Lady Jan.  Thank you Jan,  it now adorns my workroom window.
A gorgeous ATC and minature fan from Shoshi.  The detail in both is just gorgeous.
Since last woyww I have been to two workshops.  Not a lot of work has happened at my desk but I did the finishing bits at home so I feel that I can post them for woyww.  First pic is the cover of the project I did with Paula Cheyne from 7Gypsies.   A really enjoyable project and great teacher.  A peak inside of all the shabby goodness with a touch of butterflies.  Just how I like it.
Finally a pic of the "Artful Flight" project that I did at Tim Holtz's Sydney workshop.  Which I have to say was wonderful and no I didn't squeal because a lot of other women seemed to have that covered!  But, I have to say he was a great teacher, shared a wealth of information and very giving with his time.  Best of all was attending the workshop with a friend.  Thank you RosA it is always lovely to meet up and do something crafty together.
The finished project and there is a definite theme happening with workshops in Sydney. Final pic is of moi and the King of Distress.  My DH stressed not a good idea to post pics of me with other men on the internet and the teenagers warned me once I go cyber I have no control.  What the heck I only get one good photo a decade so it's being posted.   Now I am off to visit all the other woyww ......


  1. Yes Sandra, that is a great pic! I was going to put mine up but then found that an old bag lady had taken my place in the pic, so unless I can work out how to photoshop I think it will have to stay hidden! Great workshops! I haven't finished Paula's project yet, but I am working on it and am very happy with how it's going!

  2. If you really do have a lovely pic perhaps you could email it sometime. Lovely pics are few and far between! I did look at that blog, oh wow, I don't know whether to be inspired or just give it all up? I wonder if we can get on a waiting list for when she comes? Who was bringing her out? (And if they are full, I wouldn't be surprised if she does classes with someone else while here. What do you think?) The beach pic was nice, wasn't it. I took a few, of course, including a little "movie" :) panning from one end of the beach to the other.

    I just love that wall hanging, there’s so much detail in there.
    Happy Crafting!

  26. I am so jealous that a. you got to go to a TH class and b. that you met RosA! That had to be fun...and what no squealing when TH showed up? lol If he was straight I'd probably squeal, but alas... Anyhoo, giggling over your family's advice about the pictures and the internet, they are too funny! Great picture of you btw!! Glad you had fun and your projects are gorgeous! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

  27. Love your wall hanging, so much to look at.
    Thanks for visiting me Amanda J @ 76

    That's a cracking pic of you with Tim - ah, who cares about putting it out there?? I gave up worrying about that ages ago!! AND it's such a great shot!
    I adore that Art of Flight work, absolutely gorgeous, love the butterflies!

  33. thanks for the crafty snoop sandra and woohoo isn't the King of Distress just the nicest guy...hugs kath xxx

  34. You've gone viral now! How fun to meet King the Distress. I took a class with him a long time ago. I knew he was kind of a big deal but I had NO IDEA how much of a big deal, so I missed my chance to squeal. I'm not that type of gal anyway... I just love your projects, they are all so beautiful. I would like to send you some ATCs since I received yours. Please email me your address and I'll get them in the mail!

  35. It's a lovely pic, Sandra and so nice to put a face to a name but I'm very envious that you got to meet the man himself. How lucky you are to do a workshop with him and your project is stunning.
    Love your journal too, it looks full of fascinating things.
    Jan's bunting looks gorgeous in your room, she has gone global!!!! I think many WOYWWer's now own some LLJ bunting and are very proud of it.
    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs Lisax #103

    Happy WOYWW and thanks for visiting me earlier. Neesie #26

  39. It is so depressing to hear he is in town Melbourne and I wont be seeing him. You have done a workshop with him, now that is depressing for me and not fair, lucky you, did you pinch him to make sure he is real. LOL

    Great bunting and treasures you have received too.

    Happy crafting this week
