Happy 5th WOYWW Anniversary!

Wow!  We have reached 5 years of the WOYWW phenomenon.  I joined in with this fun blog hop around crafters desks just after the 1st anniversary and have been hooked ever since, so I want to thank Julia for hosting so wonderfully! (image courtesy of www.commentskart.com)
My desk is looking pretty empty at the moment (apart from my trusty mug of tea and electronics) as the only creative thing I have done this week is finish off the ATCs (safely posted apart from the one you can see the back of), and to make this little Lego 'Mixel' - Tim bought it for me as he knows I love little cute things!  It will sit at the back of my desk and make me grin.
I had a wonderful weekend spent with lots of different people who are special to me and thought I would share this photograph of Alex with my parents walking down Padley Gorge on bank holiday Monday... it was such a special day.
Have a great week everyone. Enjoy the blog hop...I will try and visit as many desks as I can.
Happy 5th Anniversary WOYWW.

Hi caro
I was just about to start the ironing ( my most hated job )
When your lovely ATC popped through the letter box. So a double thanks love the zentangles.
Hope you get back to your desk soon even if it is just to grin at your little monster
Happy anniversary

Caro, lovely pic of you walking in the woods, looks like a lovely day,
I have an ATC in its envelope, all ready to post, but Post Offices are few and far between on the canal. Locals here assure me that there is one three miles down the canal so will get this posted in the morning.
Bless you.

What great photos out in that beautiful countryside. It is so good to see children enjoying themselves without being surgically attached to their electronics. It might have been hard to be without your ray of sunshine but it is so good that he can have such fun with his grandparents too. xx Maggie #49

Hello Caro. Lovely shot of the family in the woods. It's so good when we can get out there into creation and simply enjoy it!
Thanks for visiting and for your comments. John is now home - and we are beginning to adjust to life here again.
Thank you for the ATC. It arrived safely. I have never done any zentangle work - but yours looks like fun.
Have a special week.
