WOYWW #195 and My Blogaversary

It is actually my blogaversary today 1 year ago today I started on this journey of blogging.  I have made some amazing friends, and I have learned so much.  I want to take this opportunity to say to everyone a big Thank-you! for welcoming me into this wonderful world of blogging and crafting.. I have just amazing followers and it thrills me still, every time someone decides they like my blog enough to follow it, or just to take the time out of there busy day to leave a comment.

So to my desk.. 

Went out today op shopping to find some music pages for the mixed media that I have been getting into lately.. I also found the perfect Journal book that I can make into a mixed media one.  It has little tags and pockets in it already. Its a gardening journal so lots of pictures of flowers in it also, so perfect for what I want to do with it.. Lovely little basket, I have put some stamps in it at the moment.  They do all fit in here until, you know, it might change because I might have to buy some more.. I have another little owl too peeking out was so cute could not resist, cute little face with little daisy's on her.  Thanks to all for all the wonderful comments I received last week and sorry for mucking up the link..  The suggestions for naming my owl where all a hoot... sorry had to do that.. Loved all of them Olly, Hooter, Hootie, Oscar, the one that got  me was this one from
 Mrs C 
i need more of every card! i have a fair in 3 weeks and dont have nearly enough prepared keep getting horrible bugs that knock me back for days
i love the owl, my daughter (6) thinks he should be called pipin there was no explanation for the name lol Happy WOYWW tfs Mrs.C #54
I love the thought that her darling daughter came up with a name for my owl from the other side of the world.. So Pipin it is don't you think its perfect?.. 
So hop on over to have a peek around desks at Julia's.  Make sure you have a cuppa ready before you venture into the wonderful world of Julia's Stamping Ground

Thanks for visiting my blog and all the lovely comments I enjoy reading every one.  

Have a great day
Sandy :)

  17. Yep, Pipin is a great name - children are so uninhibited..they just choose. We get all tangled up in choices and what it looks like compared to the choice, argh! Loving the sight of a basket FULL of stamps on your desk. And congrats on your first year - remember how nervous you were at the start...that went away and the rest went really fast huh!!

  18. Yeah Pipin gets my vote - it's original as well. Well done on your first blogiversary!! Had to smile about your comment that the stamps all fit in the box until you get more - can't think what you are talking about LOL!!

  33. Pippin reminds me of The Lord of the Rings. A great name for a wise owl. Have a great week with your lovely journal. xx Maggie #15

  34. Pippin, excellent name and what a treat to have a 6 year old name him. Your desk looks better than mine, mine is lacking me, busy back at work. Looking forward to the show on the weekend, when we catch up.

    Hey dont forget to wear your badge and I will bring my camera.

    Hugs Eliza

  37. Hi Sandy,

    Happy Blog anniversary! Congrats!! Isn't bloggers some of the nicest people!

    My library has a little bookstore where people donate books. I have found several books in several different languages. Not to mention songbooks. If you have something like that where you live I'd recommend it. There's a "free" stack at my library. You can also use the hardback covers for mixed media canvases!

    Happy WOYww
    Thanks for visiting me already!
