Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

WOYWW 261

 What a lovely lot of ATCs there are around and I had some beautiful ones, all so varied.  This, of course, reflects the fact that we all work in such different styles, which is what makes this blog hop so much fun.  For anyone who has not idea what I am talking about or has come from a different planet, you cannot do better than to go over to Julia's blog at Stamping Ground where she will be happy to explain it all to you.

An extra gem from Debbie (Tattered Rocks)
I would like to thank all of you for the thought, love and care that went into all these beautiful little pieces of art and I will treasure them all.  There are one or two extra gems that also arrived but I will save those for next week, especially as I already need matchsticks to keep my eyes open.  Have a wonderful week, the first of the sixth year and a week closer to next year's Crop.

I'd rather have a countdown on your blog to the next crop than to Christmas, to be honest!!! Love your collection of atcs. Happy WOYWW Helen

Debbie Rock said...

Aren't they all just lovely Maggie? I have to admit I didn't get the whole ATC thing before but do love having little pieces of art made by so many talented people.
Already GUTTED I won't be able to come to the crop next year as it clashes with a long-standing event already on the calendar ... can't tell you how disappointed I am!
Happy WOYWW'ing! Love Debbie xXx

Hi Maggie I can see from your wonderful ATC collection that mine has yet to find you. It is on its way so I hope it gets to you soon - I was a little later than most posting! You are right it is great to receive a little bit of each others creativity to ponder over. Happy WOYWW to you from Helen x

Hi Maggie, all the ATCs you've received are wonderful - a fabulous collection. A little bird, actually my Outlook diary, tells me that it was your birthday yesterday ... hope that's correct and that you had a happy day ... I won't ask how old :) Have a great week. No linky, no number, Elizabeth xx

Hi Maggie

I am really enjoying seeing all the ATCs on show - Funny, I liked mine well enough when I made it but seeing some of the insanely great example all across WOYWW I am having a crisis of confidence LOL! The Thermomorph? Yes, I did think jewellery, but the back needs a circle of felt, I think, or something to hide the rough back. Maybe a button as it's washable? I still have a TON of it left so I may still play a bit more :)

Happy no-Linky WOYWW! (except I checked again and there it is!)

Happy belated WOYWW
