WOYWW and some Exciting News

Happy Wednesday everyone. How's your week going so far? The weather hasn't cheered up much although it's a bit milder here today.

Here's my desk this WOYWW with a scrapbook page in full flow. Yeah, crafting for myself for once, a rare thing these days!! It's at the planning stage with nothing stuck down and lots of ideas floating about so you'll have to wait a few days to see the finished result.

If you're wondering what WOYWW is, where have you been? Pop over to see our esteemed leader Julia and check out some of the wonderful workspaces that are laid bare each week.

Now, on to the exciting news. I was very honoured a few weeks ago to get an e-mail from the very talented Sheena Douglass asking me to join her Design Team. Well to say I was gobsmacked was an understatement and once I'd picked myself up off the floor I jumped at the chance.

My first huge box of goodies arrived last week and I've had a lovely play this week. Can't say too much at the moment but if you love what Sheena does and enjoy getting messy take a peek at Create and Craft on Friday at Noon where she has a great Pick of the Week.

I have also received this award from two of my lovely blogging buddies, Lynda and Eiglas. Thank you so much ladies, I appreciate it enormously. As you know I can never choose who to pass awards onto, there are so many talented people out, there so I'd like to give it to anyone who visits, please feel free to help yourself.

Thanks for stopping by and for all the wonderfully generous comments you always leave. DD was absolutely delighted to receive so many for her box.

Sheena is good at that Lisa. I remember when she mailed me. My first thought was that some wag had hacked my mail box and was 'avin a laugh! I couldn't believe she was actually asking lil ole me to be the first member of her new team. Course it was all hush hush then, her new venture, and I had to sit on my news for a few weeks. I can tell you it nearly killed me, but I kept schtum! If you are anything like me you will have walked round with a smile so wide for days afterwards. I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with, and to working on the same team. Hugs Lin xx
