WOYWW #364

WOW! Not only has another week flown by but we are celebrating our 7th anniversary of visiting one another around the globe.

First and foremost, I want to wish blessings and a speedy recovery to our hostess, Julia Dunnit. She has worked so hard these past years to bring us all together but now she needs prayers as she faces surgery and recovery.  Her creative sidekick, Jan (LLJ on the list) will be taking over the reins for the next several weeks.

I apologize for not getting to any desks last week. Bob decided we needed to go to Springfield for a new lawn mower for me. Once we were home, the rains began again, meaning no computer for me. I do appreciate each and every one who stops for a visit and will do my darndest to return the favor between lightning strikes and company.

So my desk? Hmmm

This is my current work top. You'll see some of the embellishments for our Anniversary ATC Swap. I have one step left to complete then I can put everything together. I have approx. 23 of these to swap so if you'd like to have one, please drop me an email at: KellyH (at) artlover (dot) com.  I really need to get a contact form on my blog. (adding to project list)

However, my focus for the next two DAYS (not weeks as stated in original post) is the office. This is a small portion of the disaster to be finished:

As of right now, the plan is for my brother in law and his wife to visit this weekend. This is where they sleep. Eeek! So I have 3 days to get this office into shape. Now if my arm would just cooperate.

Incidentally, the 'tornado' comment last week was figurative - not an actual tornado. While there are many hitting across the country, I am blessed none have come near us. I do send prayers to those who have been hit. I saw on Weather Channel last night where one family in KS had recently completed a rebuild of their home leveled by a tornado only to be hit again yesterday. 

That's my desk? What's on yours? When you are done visiting me in the Ozarks, please hop on over to Lunch Lady Jan where she has a long list of other studios you can peek into. No standing on an up-turned milk pail to look in the window. We open the doors wide and welcome you. We won’t touch.. just look. J  I can't wait to peek. Please leave your number and you'll be first on my list.

  4. Hello Kelly did you receive the atc I made for you for this anniversary swap. Happy woyww Jill #12

  5. Kelly, I can't believe your office!!! You have a lot of work to do before your company comes. I hope your arm gets to feeling better! I wanted to do ATCs but didn't! :( #59

  6. Happy 7th WOYWW Kelly!! Thank you for being part of the celebrations today, it's so lovely to see all the friends coming together to celebrate the desky madness :-D
    It made me laugh the way that your hubby decided YOU needed a lawn mover - hope you got a souped up ride-on!
    Hugs, LLJ xxx

  7. Wow! Good luck on getting the office in shape in 3 days! Might happen if you don't eat or sleep. :) Knowing you, you'll be diligent and have it all ship shape in no time.

  8. Happy 7th anniversary WOYWW, Kelly! Your rows of flowers look pretty, waiting for the next step in the process. Good luck with the office. Thanks for visiting! ~ Laura #47

  10. What a lovely post, Kelly. Your flowers look great, and make me determined to get my cutting machine back up and running asap as my flower stash is running seriously low! Hope you get the office straight before your visitors arrive. Nothing like a deadline to focus the mind, is there. You having the lawn mower reminds me of a work colleague of my dad's who was rushing off in his lunch hour to buy a cement mixer for his wife for her birthday lol lol!! I'd mix more than cement in it if my hubby did that... Thank you for your lovely comments. I tried deleting the / from my URL and it made no difference. I've been trying all day to link and have had no success at all. However, I've still had lots of comments - everybody is so kind, and have sought me out! Thanks for all your encouraging remarks and good wishes for our anniversary - you are right, we are blessed in our hubbies, aren't we - and for his birthday too. So glad you like the flower boxes. They certainly stand out against the dark wood. Glad you enjoyed the County Show too. It's always a great day out. You join the ranks of everyone who is saying how well I look these days! I certainly feel better than I have for a long time.

    Happy WOYWW and have a really great week. Glad the tornado wasn't a real one.

    Shoshi #whatever lol!

  11. Kelly, I'm sorry about the confusion - I didn't realise you'd actually managed to get me on the list (not sure how you did that!) - I thought you'd just managed to link to me by the URL I put in the comment I left on LLJ's blog. It was only by chance that I spotted my name at #48 and realised that you'd actually managed to get me on! I am very grateful. I've been struggling on and off all day to try and link up, and was impressed with how many visits I had, considering I hadn't succeeded lol!

    Thank you again.
    Shoshi x #48 - I can now say it!!

  12. Looks like you have a lot of work to do there but you still have a few days before your visitors arrive and who knows maybe a bit of crafting too. Wishing you a happy and crafty 7th woyww anniversary, Angela x 30

  13. Kelly I just send you an e-mail saying YES I would love to swap ATC's with you and I sent you my address, but I forgot to say "Please, Send me YOUR address too!" so I can send you one of my ATC's. I hope you are having as much fun as I am today... even though I have been at the computer for over 2 hours now and still no end in sight!! (Giggling madly, she crosses one more blog post off her list) Happy 7th WOYWW Anniversary! Scrapbook Lynne Mizera WOYWW #58

  14. Hi Kelly I typed an message on my notepad or perhaps I just only emailed you only ?? not sure anymore lol
