Happy Anniversary WOYWW!

Happy 11th Anniversary to WOYWW! 

Yes, it was 11 years ago today that Julia of the Stamping Ground and many others started possibly the longest running blog hop ever! I joined in about 7 and a half years ago. I don't think I missed but a couple dozen Wednesdays since then.  I've had some great online chats with some of the gals and thoroughly enjoy this get together!

This is my desk yesterday afternoon.  I just finished packaging the 7 card kits for my online video class for May 29.  I postponed this class a week since I have to deliver or mail the kits.  I'm already working on ideas for my June in person class! 

My Platinum 6 is not in today's photo as it's sitting on the floor! I needed to move it as I used my large Platinum to do some die cutting. The almost ready packets are sitting front and center! I think I'll be mailing just 1 packet as the rest are easy to deliver and I can do it in a big loop. On the left is a die set that I'm debating about using for my June class. Lots of odds and ends under it.

I plan on working on some cards using old die cuts and paper scraps. Most of my unfinished projects have been finished but I need a baby shower card and a birthday card so those will be my goals.  We'll see what happens!

I found these little boxes of die cuts after I posted this page but added them after the fact. Yeah, I even found more!! Some will be saved and some may go into a grab bag for some lucky (or unlucky) person at my June class as a door prize. Who knows.

So, Julia, I bet you never dreamed that this would go on so long! I've been in oodles of blog hops but never this long. Anyway, please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out the fun!!!

Glad to hear that your classes will be able to restart in person in June Carol. We're not allowed to do that yet in the UK but I am hoping that by September it may be possible again. The die you are thinking of using looks interesting - is it stars or ivy leaves? Both would be cool. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #15.

Hi Carol. Happy 11th anniversary. You look busy as usual. I do hope everyone gets their kits so they can all enjoy your class at the end of the month. Well done on clearing almost all of your UFOs! Goodness, you must be about the only one to be able to say that!
Take care. Stay safe. God bless.

Happy 11th Bloggyversary Carol! How lovely to think that you may be meeting people in real life in June! The UK is a long way off that yet I think. The online class sounds a great idea, how lovely of you to think of it.
Hope you're keeping safe and well,
Hugs LLJ 4 xxx

You sound like you are getting very organised for your classes. I love the little die cuts and in particular the gorgeous red lacy heart caught my eye - what a pretty die that is.
Happy WOYWW Anniversary, hope you have a good week

Hi Carol, all those classes must take a lot of organisation! Some lovely die cuts, someone will be very pleased to win those. Have a lovely week, Stay safe, Hugs, Shaz #12 XxxX

All those bits and pieces look really useful and I bet you will find a good use for them soon. The class organisation sounds like lots of work but if it makes you and others happy then it'a worth it. Thanks for all your kind words and wishing you a very happy woyww 11th Anniversary. Big hugs, Angela x17x

Happy 11th Anniversary, Carol. I'm delighted that people want to be in a real class, but aren't you a bit worried? I guess I'm still super scared of that horrible virus that has taken more than 72,500 lives in the states so far. Great that you found those die cuts, though. Happy WOYWW from # 6.

Shoshi said...

A busy desk, Carol, and well done with the die cuts. You must be thrilled to be able to meet up again in person for a class.

Happy WOYWW 11th anniversary,

Happy belated 11th WOYWW, Carol, isn't IT amazing!? 😊 and so grateful to have your friendship through it!
Wonderfully organised you are by the sound and look of it. I can often manage one but not both of those!! 😄
Have fun with the die cuts, I've done that loop delivering too, for our church.. now know where so many more people live!!
Thanks for sharing, and may God bless and keep you and all whom you love safe and well.

Sorry I’m late! no Carol, I really didn’t think or intend anything beyond being nosey, this eleven year thing has me more surprised than anyone! I do still love to see what others are up to though, I doubt that will ever change! Delighted to read that you’ll get to be appearing in one of our own workshops next month, that will be so nice! I actually thought immediately that you ere going to show us a new toy or replacement Platinum as it wasn’t in view, and I’m loving the look of those workshop kits!
