WOYWW: Happy 4th Anniversary!

It's been four years since Julia started having crafters and artists show off their desks for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  Happy Anniversary, WOYWWers!  I've been busy finishing off some ATCs for our anniversary swap, putting WOYWW crowns on my handpainted girls.  Aside from swapping with the WOYWWer whose name is after mine on the WOYWW list this week, I'm making extra ATCs.  Let me know if you want to swap and I'll see if I have enough ATCs.

There is only a little space left to work on in my desk.  I still have to clean and put away this vintage Filipiniana blouse that I wore for a family photo shoot.  It belonged to the grandmother of my sister Patsy's husband.

We were in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, a heritage resort where they reconstructed old Filipino houses:A living museum of Philippine customs and traditions are re-born in a community typical of the 18th to early 20th century Philippines.

And lastly, an illustration from my prayer journal, for all my blog friends and visitors.

You've worked so hard on your beautiful ATC's! I would love to swap with you. Mine are much simpler and I only made ONE extra one, lol! But it's yours if you would like to swap.

Your prayer journal page is beautiful!

Hope you have a wonderful WOYWW!

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 desk looks as busy as always this week Peggy and your work as beautiful and colourful as ever. I love the way you’ve done the crowns, very clever.
That’s a beautiful photo of you too and how special to be able to wear your grandmothers vintage blouse.

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

Beautiful! Love your illustration - and the lovely blouse!

Queen Lightwell said...

Oh, those are gorgeous! And the crowns are the perfect touch. ;) I would think so, right? :) And the illustration from your prayer journal is gorgeous, too. I would like to use a different word but gorgeous is the only one I can think of, except perhaps perfection...that's it! Perfectly gorgeous! :) Or gorgeous perfection. Either fits. :) Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a sweet comment, I really appreciate it. If you have any spare ATC's and would like to swap just send me your address in an email and I'll mail you back with mine. I understand if yours are all claimed, though...they are gorgeous perfection after all! :) Deeyll #29
