WOYWW 206: preparing for the 4th Anniversary Party

This week I'm preparing for WOYWW's 4th Anniversary Party as always hosted by Julia at Stamping Ground.   I've made some more color mists (see how I made the original batch here), this time mixing mica powder colors together to get some truly different and unique color combinations.  I've also made some ATC backs using my word processing program, since I don't have any of those cute stamps I'm sure so many of you stampers own.

Of course, I know you really came to see the rocking horse, so this evening I removed this beauty from a wall and brought it to my craft room.

I so appreciate you dropping by and when you leave a comment, please include your # so I can find you.  It makes it so much easier and saves lots of time.  After all, none of us has much time with only two weeks till the biggest Wednesday blog party on the internet!

You are posting much faster than I can reply and you've been very busy! I have several large flowerpots I'm not using, wish you lived closer I'd bring them over. Nice rocking horse, is it a wood carving?

BJ said...

Gosh you are ready for the anniversary party. I have just made 2 ATCs so far and one of those is taken already - LOL. (The other for my partner on the day!) Thanks for popping by earlier, I haven't got a number yet either, can't sleep as got a new dentist today. Glad you liked my Kissing Friday. BJ #?

How funny - when I saw your name today, I wondered if I would see a rocking horse!

It seems like forever since we've chatted! Tsunami and Legend are both six now! How is Bleubeard?

You've been on my mind as the ATC anniversary approaches!

Happy WOYWW from #13

Morning! I'm so happy, first click and it let me get in! I've printed out the backs of my ATC's but that's as far as I got! Love that rocking horse picture, I'm sure my brain thinks it's seen it before (probably in another life!) Thank you for my snoop! Hope you are keeping well! Happy WOywW!

Hi there, lovely rocking horse picture! I have not started my atc's as yet and am on holiday at the moment, home a few days and off again because of work. Better get a move on hadn't I? Glad to see you are organised.
Love to Bleubeard and you.

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh you are good. Confess that I have no stamp for the backs of my ATCs and indeed, have simply used a marker pen to write my name and the acronym!! Not lazy, per se! I see you've been hijacked by the french this morning..I've disabled Anonymous comments and it's pretty much stopped them now, but I hate having that choice removed!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Good idea to create a back with all the details for the ATC. Gives us more time to be creative on the front. Have a lovely week.

Shaz Brooks said...

Morning Elizabeth(and Bleubeard)-blimey, I need to get a move on with my still unstarted ATC!I've also saved the link to your Mica mists. I shall be back later to read that, and give it a try. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #85 xxx

Elizabeth said...

Morning Elizabeth, you might be busy with ATCs for the celebrations but you're not really giving much away ... will just have to wait and see. And I'm now feeling as guilty as Shaz above ... not done much at all so I better get a wriggle on if I'm going to join in the fun. Love the rocking-horse of course - it is a beauty. Hope Bleubeard is well. Have a great day, Elizabeth x # 36

Tertia said...

You are fast today! Fast to post and fast to comment. The rocking horse is gorgeous. I have not even started on my ATC's and oh my, where to find the time, but I am determined, I am going to make a few, the have been cut out and is waiting for me to put something on them.
Happy WOYWW!

voodoo vixen said...

Typical... I got locked out of the house today for 4 hours and missed woyww. I had better get my rear in gear and make some ATC's as I want one of yours!! Annette

scrappystickyinkymess said...

I make ATC backs too! I am a bit lazy, like Julia :), so printing them out is a lot faster. I figure a long as I SIGN them by hand I'm OK :)


Happy WOYWW!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Oh blimey, I'd forgotten about the ATC backs....I'll have to create some on the computer too. I made mynfirstbever stamped ATCs at Julia's a few days back. It was fun but I don't think I'm going to take up paper crafting anytime soon...too many other things to do!
Hope you and Bleubeard are both well,and happy!
Hugs, LLJ 29 xx
