Four years... it seems totally unreal that this weekly jaunt through peoples' desks and craft spaces is 4 years old. I first started doing WOYWW when we were living in Saudi Arabia in 2009, since then we have lived in Canada, had 6 months at home in Scotland and now we are in Australia. I am sure that Julia has no idea what her weekly WOYWW really means to many of us. To me, it is a wonderful constant in my ever changing world, a connection to so many like minded people, many of whom have become personal friends even though we have never actually met!
These are the ATC's I made for the 4th Anniversary Swap. I thought the theme of Time Flies was appropriate for the anniversary.
All stamped with WOYWW4 and today's date.
Backs all signed and dated.
and little protector envies to keep them safe on their travels
and into their stamped envelopes, which have been addressed and stamped and are on their way...
except for the list one... which will go in the post as soon as I know who it belongs to!! Eugene, the wee mannie that runs my local post office (I know, it says a lot that I have only lived here a few weeks and we are on first name terms) was impressed with the envelopes and promised to put proper Ozzie stamps on them... none of that printed out version because I said they were going to artists!! Way to go... so now all my swappees are artists... because Eugene and I said you were... ;)
Thank you Julia. Here's looking at another 4 years!!
It is also our Grandaughter's First Birthday today... Happy Birthday Caitlyn!
