WOYWW Anniversary


Welcome to my desk on the 8th anniversary of What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.  
8 years-it is amazing and I bet when our leader and Queen of the desks, Julia, first started this she never expected it to become what it is.  Over the years we have met both virtually and in real life, we have swapped craft, stash, cards and ATC's.  We have shared highs and lows (I will never forget those of you at the crop 4 years ago only a few weeks after my dad's sudden death convincing me to come and held my hand and fed me cake!!).

The past week has been a rush, I have not been able to return visit many desks as I was lucky enough to be in Spain (Barcelona and Sitges) with my family so access was very limited (very few wifi spots).  An amazing place for art and architecture though so MANY photos were taken and even some sketching.




Anyway, to the reason you are here-my desk is back to being messy (you will be glad to see) as I am quickly making a masterboard for my ATC swap (hoping I will be able to make a few after work tonight).



I find masterboards are a great way to make several projects especially if you are short of time (which I am).

I have decided after the terrible attack in Manchester not to do my "Man Bites Dog" cards this week-my thoughts are with all those affected.

  1. I am glad you came too.. I would love to go back to Barcelona again; I had one very quick (freebie) trip in 2002 but didn't get to see as much as I would have liked... Happy wOYWW and good luck getting the atcs done. I managed 2 this year! Helen #2

  2. Morning Kyla. Good to see you - glad you so enjoyed Spain. So, you are following me this morning - and I have an ATC tucked up ready to send to you. My email address is on this week's post, so looking forward to hearing from you with your address.
    Take care. God bless.

  3. What a joy it would have been to visit Spain. Your masterboards are fantastic. Had to enlarge the photo. Although I always love your man bites dog cards, I understand your desire to not share something this week. Happy 8th Anniversary from # 1.

  4. Happy 8th Anniversary too! I'm so glad our paths crossed through WOYWW, it's been great to get to know you over the past few years :-D. I admired your Barcelona pics on FB, I worked there on a big open concert in the run-up to the Olympics, with Freddie and Montserrat singing THAT song....happy memories!

  9. Hello Kyla!
    Love your masterboard! I am happy we met at a few of the WOYWW crops! I see you have been to Spain recently - I am hoping that will be my next destination! My daughter studied Spanish language and history of art so I think she we will show me around!!!
    Hope to see you at the crop this year in Wales!

  11. Loved your Barcelona album, what a fab trip. Love your post...putting in to words what we all try to do...it's about support, huh, friendship. Good idea about the cards, they have a horrid habit of being spooky..

  12. I'm planning a trip to Spain soon - I have to scatter my fathers ashes in his favourite place :)
    I love the masterboard - do you make just one, or lots at a time I wonder?
    Have a Wonderful Wednesday!
