WOYWW 211: The one where she has no camera

It's not exactly a staged desk, but more an old photo.  At the moment, I am unable to use my camera.  But I'm not

letting Julia, our super WOYWW leader down just because of a little thing like not being able to show my desk or a rocking horse.  In fact,


even though I don't have a desk to show this week, I still have TWO rocking horses to share with you.  This first one was made for me in Year 3's WOYWW Anniversary, but never sent.  I sure didn't mind waiting a year for it, because it holds one of the smallest rocking horses yet.


Both of these beauties are from Lyn (Spyder).  The deal was, I was supposed to send HER a PIF, and, before she could get her package from me, she sent me two with rocking horses, even though I asked her not to.  What can I say?  No one ever listens to me!!  

I apologize for the scan.  I should have removed these beauties from their plastic sleeves before I scanned them.  But I was in a bit of a hurry, anxious to show my faux desk and newest ROCKING HORSE(S).

Usual caveat applies: if you've come from WOYWW, please leave your number so I can get back to you.  And since I'm not headed out of town early Wednesday morning like I did last week, I promise to get to at least 100 players this week.

Hi - sorry you still cannot use the camera - will get there eventually with it. Two very thoughtful atc's from Lynn, how lovely to include your favourites - rocking horses.
Take care and love to Bleubeard.
Hugs, Neet 16 xx

Sandy said...

Think you win for the tidiest desk this week. The ATC's are so cute and the little rocking horses are adorable.

Julia Dunnit said...

Prize for tidy coming up! Telling people not to send you something is like offering a dare really, and besides,most people like to send the odd bit of happy mail..it works, doesn't it! ISn't it great how we all look at any size, material or shape rocking horse the world over and think of you.

Bridget Larsen said...

I dont know what I'd do if my camera died, well I know what I did when it died not long ago lol I bought another one which I love.

Two Atc's that so suit you...the senders knew you well. Maureen #5

PS You did leave me 2 comments...you were right...I couldn't return comments till now as our laptop died and we bought a new one but then had to leave it with the geek squad to laod the Microsoft Office and Windows 8 and the anitvirus package. Thanks for your patience with me!

VonnyK said...

Such a bummer that you can't use your camera. The Atc sure was worth waiting for even after a year (he he).
That is one cute little rocking horse.
Have a great week.
Von #27 (thanks for visiting me already)

Lucy said...

I am pleased that you haven't been put off joining this week because your camera broke. Inspired idea of adding an old phoo. I'm going to do this too as broken camera got me once too! Thanks for your kind words when popping by, have a great week - Lucy #34 x

BJ said...

Those ATCs are absolutely super. Adorable rocking horses too, what a lucky bunny. I think the Timmy tag I made is growing on me, seems lots of people like it, perhaps it is just that it is not my style really, who knows. Thanks for stopping by my desk this week BJ#55

Shaz in Oz.CalligraphyCards said...

Wow, Elizabeth what fab little rocking horses Lyn found and what amazing detail on atc's ~ mm hope your camera is working again.. have you tried your phone?? my phone takes pretty good shots... just a thought.

Spyder said...

hehehehe, That little blue rocking horse has been hiding on my woyww deck all year, and I couldn't find him, then suddenly he appeared!! So I just HAD to send him he was soooo disappointed not to go last year! yes...on my desk this week is an embossing thingy, not a grommet maker, it's what I used to die cut the little letters on the ATC's, it was less than half price some time ago, but I've never been able to get anything else.
So glad you like the ATC's!!


((Lyn))) #52 I think!

MaggieC said...

Glad we got to see rocking horses after all this week. Lovely ATC's. Thank you for your visit this week. I am so late replying. After battling with stupid forms and insensitive officials, I just vegetative in the evenings. It is good to get back to talking to you and my many crafting friends. xx Maggie #13

RosA said...

They're great ATCs! Love the tiny rocking horse (I suspect it started out life as a button.)
Hope you camera issues are soon resolved!
Thanks for stopping by, and have a good week,

Diana Taylor said...

How frustrating not being able to use your camera - hope it gets better soon! I love the ATC's and the gorgeous little rocking horses. Thank you so much for dropping by my desk - I'm about a third through the WOYWW list and about half way through the SOC list - it will be the next posting well before I finish at this rate!

Daniella said...

i'M SO SORRY I'M LATE!!! You are right, that is the tiniest rocking horse I've ever seen!!
Hope you had a great WOYWW!

Marit said...

I love that you participate although you're out of camera... such creative and awesome art instead of showing your desk. Thanks for your visit to my blog the other day. Happy solstice and happy ~ belated ~ woyww. Keep on rockin' Hug from Holland, Marit #70

butlersabroad said...

Ah Elizabeth, what can I say? Me and Christmas we're just best buddies all year long it seems! Although sometimes it's too hot in my craft room to do anything, other times it cools me down to think of snow and cool weather when it's hot outside! Lovely atc's, even if you didn't get them on time, they're still nice to have.

Hugs
Brenda

Carolyn Phillips said...

Well that is tidy! Love the little rocking horses.

KatzElbows said...

You may not be able to post a photo of your desk, but I would call this a very creative and imaginative way of joining in the fun. Those ATCs are gorgeous, especially the teeny tiny rocking horse. I've started creating ATCs for next year as I didn't make any this year and I definitely missed out!

Thank you for stopping by. I'm hoping to have a torso update on Wednesday.

Happy belated WOYWW.
Cheers, Rachel #57
