WOYWW #468 9th Anniversary

Happy WOYWW #468

Today marks the 9th Anniversary of WOYWW 

Three cheers to Julia Hip Hip Hooray... Hip Hip Hooray.. Hip Hip HOORAY...!!!
For each week she has given creatives worldwide the opportunity to share 
their creativity on work spaces of all different shapes and sizes 
and that is something to be celebrated.

I've watched for a while, commented and finally taken the plunge,
8 weeks in i'm addicted so I can only imagine how those of you that 
have been there for the long run must feel.

Congratulations.. Wishing many more WOYWW to come.

This is what was on my work space yesterday as I have a Shopping date with my 
Daughter today and was unsure if I would have the time to take a picture this morning.

A glimpse of my take on Starry Night by Van Gogh and one unfinished 
ATC created to mark the special occasion,


A little finer detail and it's finished.
The eye is me watching and the nine speaks for itself..
Silly me forgot to add the WOYWW but I can do that!

I didn't opt in for the ATC exchange as I'm a new participant but
this one is for you Julia if you wish to claim it xx



Wishing you all a fabulous day
I'll be along to visit you all as soon as my day out is over 
and my Daughter has cleaned out my purse..!!

Anniversary Wishes
and cake a plenty!!

Tracey xx

Love the works you are creating on your work space. Have fun with your daughter, save enough to get back home - daughters can be soooooo expensive! Hugs, Valerie

Happy WOWW Tracey, - I used to play along some years back, but haven't for ages, maybe one day again, it's fun, but very time consuming I found....

Anyway, love what you have on your work desk, amazing eye on that ATC!
Have fun with your daughter today!!

Heather M said...

Hi Tracey, happy WOYWW anniversary! I'm newish too ... 10 months in I think! Great fun and very addictive! Your ATC is stunning! Your comment about your daughter clearing out your purse made me laugh ... I have 2 of them, grown up and left home and I still spend lots on them! But they are worth it, as are the little people! Have a lovely week Heather x #17

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

You make the most impressive and beautiful art, and that ATC is out of this world. Puts the ones I am sending to shame.

Had to laugh about your daughter, too. Now you know why I only have cats (grin). Hope you are enjoying the party. Happy 9th anniversary from #13.

Happy Belated 9th Birthday WOYWW. Welcome to the world of WOYWW. I think this is my first visit to you? What a fabulous ATC - and your Van Gogh piece is amazing (I seem to be drawn to that painting - keep seeing it at the moment). Hope you enjoyed your shopping. I went to TK Maxx for a bathroom bin, and came out with a lot more including 3 pairs of shoes! Ali x #19

Julia Dunnit said...

Well Tracey I would love it, thank you. It’s very clever and makes me feel very special! I hope you feel ‘settled’ in WOYWW, being a newish contributor doesnt preclude you from anything my blog throws up, I hope you know that! I love your Starry Nigth interpretation, lovely strokes..do you have to remind yourself to stay in style I wonder? I’m not good with pastels or chalks..the texture of them going onto paper sets my teeth on edge. I know, weird.

Kim said...

HI Tracey!Thanks for popping by last week. Love your ATC. love your starry night piece as well. Did you see the story about the family in FL that painted their house in 'Starry Night' in part for their autistic son? Has been getting a lot of community flack as well as support. Drop me a comment if you want to see and I'll find the link. Happy Anniversary and Creative Blessings! Kelly #34

Hi Tracey, just about managing to catch up on the visits as my mum hasn't been very well. I absolutely love that ATC, maybe next year we can have a swap as I always make extras for my best blogging friends. Hope the shopping went well and you returned with lots of goodies. Happy creative weekend, Angela x20x

Hi Tracey, so glad you're enjoying the addictive WOYWW experience! For ages I saw "WOYWW" and wondered what on earth it meant and when I eventually explored it, I joined up and never regretted it. Your art is fabulous - love your ATCs! Thank you for your visit and your kind words. I am doing so well health-wise and really enjoying the sensation! Glad you like my woodgrain effect card and our pretty kitties!

Happy belated WOYWW and 9th anniversary,

Hi Tracey, your ATC is absolutely amazing - that eye is so striking, I love it. Your Van Gogh work is great too - I love the expressiveness of it.
Thank you so much for visiting my desk, I apologise for being a tardy desker but I've been all over the place lately with hospital visits and family stuff! I appreciate your visit and kind comments and I hope you have a great bank holiday weekend,

I can understand why woyww is so popular, we all love to see what other people's work desks look like, I have a craft room but only have a 3x3 area to work on!!!! Lol. I for one am always intrigued at what is on your desk and tbe project that you are working on, I love to see your process.... as I am sure all your inspired crafty friends do too... just look at that fabulous eye with the lush sewing... ooooohhhhh... deeelish!!! Xxx
