WOYWW and Blog Candy!!!

THANK YOU to all my new followers!!  I hope you enjoy your visits to my little piece of blogland.  I want to please so if there's something that you'd enjoy seeing more of please let me know.

Woo hoo!  Today is my favorite day of the week!  It's WOYWW hosted by Julia at Stamping Ground. If you don't know what it's all about you really need to check it out.  You'll be amazed.  Just click on the red text above and it'll take you to her blog - where it all begins.

Here's a photo of my desk - with some new things.  Fabric, some yarn, Tim Holtz tickets, 6 x 6 pack of paper and the stuff that was on there last week.
And now, for what you may really want to see.  The blog candy.  The majority of votes were for a canvas.  So - ask and ye shall receive.  This is a little canvas that I just love.  It's one of a kind.  Someone asked what I do with the Starbucks coffee wrap -- well, the bird on the canvas is cut out from one of those!  Anything that you need bits of cardboard -- those Starbucks coffee wraps are perfect!
My tweet canvas, Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Broken China),
the Paper Studio Christmas ribbon, Dream Big stamp,
Tim Holtz idea-ology Adage Tickets
These are the things I took a photo of.  I'll be adding some other items to the candy too.

Here's the rules for the candy.  Leave a comment on this post and be a follower.  If you want, put it on your sidebar and let me know (your name will be put in the hat an extra time for this).  You don't have to be a WOYWW participant to enter.  

As always, I will visit those that end in the same number as me and those that leave a comment here.  It may take me a while but I'll do my best, promise.

Your canvas is so colourful and cute, and the desk looks interesting. Not sure whether I'm a follower so will check that.

Beautiful giveaway Kay, love that canvas (even though I didn't vote for it, lol!). I'll pop up your picture on my side bar in a bit. I keep those coffee sleeves too and have used them before for crafting. What are you planning to use the wool for? Love the colour of it.

Sandy Leigh said...

Your desk makes me so happy--I LOVE a desk full of fabric and yarn more than anything! I gasped when I saw the canvas--beeeautiful!!! That is what you call blog candy...dessert...and dinner! Well done, dearest. And by the way, the part 2 of Grimm is next week. We had Monday night's episode on the DVR, and my dear hubby was patiently waiting while I posted my WOYWW. Great episode by the way--I was scared at the end! Hugs!

Belinda said...

Hi Kay! I just peeked at my blog to find that you were my first comment of the day. Thanks. I am just beginning my snooping and your blog candy is irristable. I have to admit I haven't entered one of these contests, I usually watch and dream so today I thought not to sit on the sidelines especially with such beautiful goodies on display. Thinkin that canvas would look great in my craft room!!

Thanks again for visiting my blog.

Have a blessed day.

Victoria said...

Be careful, Kay, your desk looks likes a papercrafter's!! I see stamps, papers, ribbon.... I thought you weren't sure about the whole cardmaking malarky?! A lovely canvas - you're so talented at doing them. Happy WOYWW! Victoria no.55

Helen said...

Hi Kay Thank you for popping by. Your desk looks full of stash ready to play. I have never seen the TH tickets before. Love the canvas you made - what a fab prize. Have fun with the giveaway. WOYWW Hugs to you from Helen 18

Shoshi said...

Great stuff, Kay. I don't know what a Starbucks coffee wrap is, or what the equivalent would be in the UK, but I do like what you've done with it!!

Thanks for your visit - glad you like my second annotated photo - they are great fun to do. I'm gradually working on downsizing the rest of the house too but it's taking a very long time. As for my diaries, these were just appointment diaries with nothing of any significance written in them at all, apart from dentist's appointments, meals out etc. etc.! I did find the one that said "Wedding" on 24th May 1986, though - 26 years ago lol!! I don't think I need a diary to remind me of THAT date!

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #10

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Love seeing your work space... so many fantastic goodies. What a beautiful canvas!! I love it, Kay! :)

Kat Griffin said...

Love your eye candy! Birds are always of extra interest to me. I bird watch in my area a bit. I m so glad that the cooler fall temps are coming back now. It has been a too hot and humid summer for me.

Joynana said...

Hi Kay, thanks for stopping by my blog. I am running behind also, it is hard for me to get it all done on Wednesdays so I have to do a little each day. I love seeing what people are adding to their stash. Your canvas is just wonderful. I keep looking at them in the craft stores and then I put them back. Maybe next time I will actually get one. #22

Tertia said...

Lovely little canvas and fantastic candy. My desk is finally all sorted and neat as a pin, thats why I am so late visiting this week, it took me two whole days to sort out!
Happy belated WOYWW!

Carol Hornby-Clements said...

A lovely canvas and yummy candy too. I didn't join in with WOYWW this week as it is school holidays and I took the little people out while we had the good weather.


Elizabeth said...

Hi Kay, your desk has lots of interesting stuff on it but what really grabbed my attention was the ball of yarn, such a pretty colour and it looks soft too. Your canvas is lovely - shame I'm too late to be part of the draw but serves me right for being so late :)) I'm impressed that the wee birdie is made from a coffee cup. Waving from the West of Scotland and wishing you a lovely weekend. Elizabeth x #54

scrappymo! said...

Kay, It all looks so lovely. I waited till your candy was closed to follow you as you have been so generous to me already.
Your gorgeous bird stamp arrived today and I just made a blog post and put in a hyperlink to your blog.

Margo@Legacy of a Single Girl said...

Hi Kay, I'm catching up on blogland and this post was great!! Good for you, and look at all those followers! Better yet, the canvas you did is really really good!! Just love it! How fun! Will you be doing another???
