WOYWW 52: The Best Of WOYWW 2010



My WOWYY Altered Challenge Project
Hands-Down One Of My Crafty Highlights Of 2010!

Welcome to The Best Of What’s On Your Workspace Wednesday – a post designed to look back at my first year of WOYWW blogging and commemorate my favorite WOYWW moments of 2010!

It’s Hard To Craft When Such Beautiful Distractions Abound!

I began my WOYWW journey last January, with an introduction to Legend and the smallest of peeks into my world. I met my first three WOYWWers that day – Chrissie, Carmen, and the legendary Julia herself!

While The Eagle-Eyed Elizabeth Admires My Screensaver!

As the weeks passed, that window widened, and I began to share more of my desk, my projects, and my life. Strangers turned into friends that I looked forward to sharing a little slice of my life with each week, and whose world I enjoyed vicariously peeking into as well!

Here are a few highlights from my first year of WOYWW:

Happy New Year to you all – and here’s to another year of priceless WOYWW memories!

    What a brilliant idea: your year in review! Thank you for highlighting your wonderful torsos. I've drawn so many of them, but done nothing more with them. I am inspired!

    It's hard to believe it's almost 2011. Lovely altered project and oh my what a delicious stash and workdesk!! What is the attraction cats have to rolls of paper towels? I'm always finding them knocked over and kicked about lol.

    TFS and Happy New Year 😀

    Love the year in review!

  12. oneoff says:

    I've really enjoyed looking at the review of your year – what a great idea! I only joined WOYWW in October, so it was a brilliant opportunity to catch up on your altered project (love it), the torsos, and the lovely Legend. I am not sure if you will ever get to use a label as the machine, is, of course, for making cat toys!

    What a lovely way to remember the year!! Your cat is just wonderful – such a character. How do you manage to craft when he's around?

    Happy 2011 to you.

  21. Bleubeard and Elizabeth says:

    I really enjoyed the look back! It has been so much fun, hasn't it? The photos you chose are priceless, too.

    I hope you had a great Christmas. Little did I know when I left suddenly last Wednesday that I would not have access to the internet. I didn't even get to wish you a Merry Christmas, and now it's time to wish you good fortune, happiness, and fun in 2011. And Bleubeard wants to wish Tsunami and Legend catnip dreams in 2011, too. All the best to you, dear friend.
