WOYWW 17: Gifts From A Friend

Last week, Paula mentioned that it’s been awhile since she’s seen Legend on my blog, so I’m posting today’s picture with that in mind! Legend loves boxes. Whenever he finds an empty one, no matter how big or how small the box is, he will crawl into it. You would not believe some of the tiny containers he has squeezed himself into!

Earlier, Legend stuffed himself into a too-small-for-his-body box, then flipped it over while trying to make himself comfortable! He spent a good bit of time trying to figure out how to flip it back so that he could crawl into it again. Alas – the game ended when he succeeded only in knocking the box to the floor!

My time in The Paper Palace has been limited this week so you’ll have to visit my last few posts for the organizational ideas and stash, but I had to share the awesome surprise I received from Wendy, the gal who sends out the cool collage bags for the ATC swaps! A few weeks ago, I mentioned how much I loved the dress form image that I used in The Perfect Dress ATC and asked for the name and manufacturer of the stamp. Well, instead of sending me that information – Wendy opted to surprise me with a lovely card and the stamp itself! How sweet is that? Thank you so much Wendy – I can’t tell you how much your thoughtfulness touched my heart! And, for those who are wondering – the stamp is called Wire Dress Form and it’s made by Stampabilities!

Now, for those of you who would like to join in the WOYWW fun, please leave a comment so I’ll know you stopped by, then visit Julia at Stamping Ground to link up and meet the ever-growing cast of WOYWWers! And, if you are looking for the perfect recipe for a Mother’s Day brunch – or just want something fabulous to make for yourself or your family – stay tuned as I’ll be sharing something incredibly yummy with you soon!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

    Love Legend with the box. Thomas loves boxes too, first he likes to get in them and hide and then when the novelty wears off he likes to chew them up.

    Love the stamp you used for your ATC.

    Now that is a cute stamp. No matter the price differences, I will always prefer the wood mounted! We've had Mother's Day here in Blighty, but am always up for a recipe!

    LOL! Look at the size of that paw!

  6. Marlene says:

    Love your cats. Love your crafts, too…but those big cats have a soft spot in my heart. 🙂

    Great storage ideas on previous posts and the cats are gorgeous!


  15. Bleubeard and Elizabeth says:

    What a thoughtful friend to send the stamp. I love it, too.

    Bleubeard is really jealous of Legend. He only gets the ones on the floor, since he's not allowed on the furniture. Love your cat antics and have been looking over this week's organization ideas. Really like the chipboard idea. Sorry I don't have any, so don't know what I would do if I did.

    Hope you had a great WOYWW. I know I'm late getting here, but it was definitely worth it.
