WOYWW 260 - Happy and Thankful

Creating something every day just makes me happy and thankful. Stopping in the middle of a project, snapping a photo, and sharing that unique moment with creative types around the world lets me know, week after week, I'm not alone in that feeling! So Happy What's-On-Your-Workdesk Wednesday lovelies! If you haven't already, link in your worktable and join the mid-week party.
 Our UK deskers had a lovely crop this weekend--there are photos and it looked like a blast! I hope they know I was there in spirit. Besides all the fun, it looked like a lot of creativity going on! In the meantime, I snapped this photo in the middle of making some floss cards from a free downloaded image on Pinterest, and I backed them with a black cardstock. Then I started doodling on the black cardstock - so I'll definitely have to do a special blog about them, they are so much fun.
Homemade floss cards for my travel kits.
49-cent stamps on clearance - I'm mounting the foam clings onto blocks
Starting a "bliss flag" stitching project - more about that later
To my fellow "Call the Midwife" watchers - that season finale was amazing...heartbreaking...and a little worrisome for a minute there about the show's future, but they are coming back so whew! I won't say anything else in case you haven't caught up on it yet.

Today I got to craft with my little nephew--he made a shell bracelet! Have a wonderful week!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch, Enjoy


  1. So adorable! Love the two color sides too. Glad your show will be back, hate when they cancel something I like! Enjoy the day! Winnie #62

  2. Your floss cards are cute. Love the added black with the writing all over it. Happpy 5th WOYWW!! Brigita #95

  3. Homemade floss cards! Wow! So impressed! I guess I don't know what Call the Midwife is, so nothing ruined for me! Happy Anniversary, and thanks for the earlier visit! :) #92 ( i usually forget to leave my #)

  6. Happy 5th WOYWWaversary. Love all your crafty activities. x Jo

  7. Where to start?! Of course you were there in spirit on Saturday - in fact, I was talking about you to someone (blowed if I can remember who it was, the day passed by in a blur!!).
    You are a Bargain Hunter Extraordinaire - how can stamps be that cheap? My problem is that I don't like shopping enough so I never turn up the really good deals!
    I love the fact that your nephew made a shell bracelet - how cool is that? Hopefully he'll keep a love of making things as he gets older!
    Your ATC is on its way, my love, so hopefully it won't be too long before it arrives :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 1 xx (the No 1 was a complete fluke btw...I just turned on the computer and linked up just at the right time!!!)

  8. LOVE your floss holders! What a cute idea! And I adore that your little nephew crafts with you! I miss having little ones in the house to craft with. I'll just have to wait for grandchildren!!

    Happy WOYWW-aversary!
