WOYWW #208 ----4th Anniversary Queanbeyan Newspaper writeup

What's on Your My Work Desk
Thank you Nikki for the above badge
4th Anniversary is here!!!
It all started HERE!
And this is how were celebrate it HERE!

Last week I tried my hardest to visit as many desks as I could and I succeeded in visiting 169 blogs, took me 2 days to achieve that. 
 Found this tin of Tetley tea at Aldi's the other day and just had to have it for the quote, I'm going to make it a point to collect stuff with this KEEP CALM quote now as I've seen a few good ones. My friend Ellen gave me that cute post it note holder and 2 stamps I bought on the weekend of a koala and bbq sauce. Always wanted to make bbq sauce so now I have a stamp hahaha
Stuff I have purchased and haven't had time to unpack lol
Newspaper article I appeared in earlier this month on a story they ran of the store that my friend Ann-Maree runs and that I design and teach classes at. Here is the newspaper link to read the article better.

I am playing ATCs swap so whoever is after me will get my ATC, also Annie put her hand up to swap with me.

Race over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see more desks, ATCs and fun around the worlds desks.
I found this no knead bread on Ozark Mountain Family Homestead whose blog I've been following for awhile, this bread is cool to make but I'll let you watch the video for all the cool tips she shares

Finally I love perfectly timed photos, 
click HERE to see some amazing ones

You know that you don't put the stamp IN the sauce don't ya?!! Great tea caddy. That Keep Calm thing is on everything here, am sick of the sight of it! Loved the article, that's a great deal of column inches your friend achieved, how marvellous!

It’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

Your space is looking good this week Bridget and how lovely to have all those new goodies to play with………...when you eventually get around to unpacking them!

Enjoy your Wednesday snooping on this very special Day
Happy Crafting!

nice looking desk and I love that tea tin! I am all about quotes this week too! Nice article about the shop. Wish I could get more people around here interested in purchasing local cause I am afraid my local shop is going to go out of business if they don't get more customers. Happy WOYWW 4th Anniversary. Have a great week. Vickie #14

Caro said...

Loving the photo of you in the paper! That tea tin is fab...I am a total tea addict and that sums me up perfectly! Well done you for commenting so much last week...I am sorry that everything caught up with me and I was useless. Trying to rectify that now. Thanks for sharing. Have a very happy 4th WOYWW birthday.

I was shocked to read you have an Aldi store in Australia. This truly IS one small world.

Thoroughly enjoyed the article, but it put me behind a bit. I'm also trying to get to most this week.

Happy WOYWW4 from # 17.

Darnell J Knauss said...

Hi Bridget! It's been a full and busy day, hasn't it?! I see you are under me in the WOYWW hop and that means you get one of my ATCs. I will email you my address so you can send me one of yours, too, if you have any extra. That way you will have my email address to send me your snail mail address. Did that make sense! Thank you and have a fantastic week!! Darnell #34 (I thought I sent this earlier today, but I don't see it. Forgive me if this is a duplicate!)

Eliza said...

Hi Bridgett, thanks for popping by to see me, gosh got your head in the paper wow you are a celebrity now, what a champion you are, you really do know your craft,that's for sure. congratulations.

Thanks for leaving me a comment and yes NOK is next of kin. Internet in the hospital was virtualy non existent as she was in intensive care, I never thought to take a shot of my feet and hey that is really fashionable too.

Happy 4th WOYWW Birthday greetings to you.

Hi Bridget, love the Tetley tea tin I wonder if we have it in the UK? will have to check that out. Love the stamp with the BBQ sauce recipe what a good idea and the cute Koala.
Just thought I'd let you know I put some pics on my blog of how I made my blending blocks.
Happy art making

Hi Bridget,
I'm going to have a look at that Queanbeyan link as I have a friend who moved to Cooma a few years ago and I think she might be interested.
Happy 4th WOYWW Anniversary,

Hi Bridget - great to be in the Queanbeyan paper - my husbands family are all from Canberra - and Stamp-it stamps - they were one of my very first purchases over 20 years ago... so good to see an aussie made still going... Happy 4th WOYWW Birthday... Mxx #137

scrappymo! said...

Congatulation to you and your friend for the great article.
Love your tin of i wish I had an Aldi's!!!

RosC said...

Woohoo, you hit the news! That's a great photo of you. Love the 'aerial' shots of your art studio too.
The perfectly timed photos page is terrific. Love the footballer with his bum on fire - ha, ha.
Well, happy WOYWW week/year/4 years!
Ros #28 Still chugging along.

Shoshi said...

Great article about your friend. I love the "Keep Calm" theme too! I think we all need a bit of that these days... Sorry to have missed the 4th anniversary of WOYWW. Thanks for your nice comment - it IS exciting, isn't it! Regarding the stairs, I can get up and down stairs with an effort, but I am hoping to have a stairlift fitted in the new house. This will also be very useful for taking things up and down stairs when my hubby is out and can't do it for me!

Patsy Paterno said...

Congratulations on being published! That must be fun! I am amazed you didn't unwrap your new stash! I couldn't be that patient! Patsy@10
