#WOYWW 473

It's Wednesday and time for WOYWW 473

I promise not to bore you all with my rambles of dysfunctional IT this week but appreciate everyone's concerns comments and quick fixes last week. I've started another penny pot to save up for a new laptop and in the mean time learning different ways to juggle the whole windows 10 breakdown..

Today is a good day as it's the first day in a while that I get to spend the whole day at home.
Already set up, i'm ready to have a me day seed bead sorting and a little wire work 
hoping to finish a couple of projects off.

I received this wonderful package last week, a blog candy prize I won a few months back.
Unaware I had won it lucky for me my dear friend Dorthe noticed and notified me.

I'm a very lucky girl.

I made a little card for Kezzy to say Thank you using some of those products.. 
I hope she has received it by now as it was posted Sunday Evening first class..

A little something for Dorthe is on it's way too..
but i'm keeping that a surprise..

Look forward to catching up with WOYWW later today

Creative wishes

  1. Lucky you, Tracey. We can always leave it to our blogger friends to have our backs. When I won something one time (only time), several people congratulated me, or I would not have known. You certainly won some wonderful gifts. Lovely thank you card, too. You are SO thoughtful. I like your beading and wire work, too. Happy WOYWW but no number yet.

  2. well done on your prize! Fab card. Thanks for your early visit to mine. Helen #2

  3. Wow nice prize Tracey, how lucky that your friend spotted you had won. I won some tickets to Create It Hanger 42 at the weekend and had a lovely afternoon. Love the card you made with your goodies. Sarah #5

  4. Nice surprise to get those goodies. Love the card you made. Have fun today with your beads - so many lovely ones there. Thanks for sharing - Hazel #8 x

  5. What a great package of goodies, and that is a wonderful card, too. Nice she let you know. I bet she will love her card. Happy WOYWW! #10

  6. Great prize, glad you friend spitted your win!! Enjoy your day crafting. Anne x #10

  7. Great prize, glad you friend spitted your win!! Enjoy your day crafting. Anne x #10

  8. Don't know what happened there. pressed 'return' when part way through my comment and it disappeared and went on to another website?? Strange??
    Well that 'return' worked. Was saying how lovely to win those Dina Wakeley paints. I was using them at weekend and sorely tempted but resisted as I have so much paint to use from 'impulse' buys in the past. I love the card you made to say 'thank you' - the type of card I love receiving and would be pleased if I made something like that.
    Enjoy your day off and please show us your seed bead makes at some time. Hope you get the projects finished - just enjoy along the way.
    Hugs & Thanks for all the visits to me, so appreciated.
    Hugs, Neet xx 9

  9. Aww have a great crafty day! I love your prize, I love her stuff.

  10. Oh your card is beautiful. Just love it. And what a great prize glad Dorthe contacted you, sometimes life just gets in the way with keeping up on this stuff. AND I don't even want to discuss WINDOWS upset with ONE DRIVE You are right just more Money and the photo issues I am having is totally necessary. I worked fine a month ago. Enjoy a good week Happy WOYWW

  11. Your Thank you card is so beautiful! And the prize you won is fantastic!I am sorry for you about all this desaster with the IT breakdown and I hope you can get a new laptop soon.
    Have a great me day with the seed beads Tracey!
    Happy day!
    Hugs, Susi

  12. What a generous prize! If it was luck, then yes, lucky you, but I suspect modesty at your own skills. Talking of which...beading - another of your skills, good grief! I always thought I’d get into it after my sister did, but it never spoke to me...probably wasnt gratuitously fast enough really! I’m back to being happy not having a dog about already, and it’s only been 18 hours, as much as I love having him, no doubt that I don’t really like the tie. The routine works though, although I think I’m too old for a real puppy!!

  13. Have a lovely creative day Tracey! That card looks fabulous, I bet Kezzy loved it!

  14. Wow that's quite a win, Tracey! I'm glad to see that the Dina Wakley paints are now in bottles rather than jars. I never thought it was a good idea to put them into jars - they dry out more quickly that way. Those crayons look very promising as well - you're a lucky girl indeed! Love what you created with your new toys - full of colour and inspiration! Enjoy the summer weather while it lasts! zsuzsa #23
