WOYWW -- Happy Mail!

Hello lovelies!  Happy July (can you believe it!!).  It's the day we  meet up at Julia's place, otherwise known as Stamping Ground.  Another week that desks are shared from around the world.

I received some lovely ATCs and cards.  Thank you so much!  If you haven't received an ATC from me and thought we were swapping, please get in touch with me.   
I also received a birthday package from Nikki.  Yes, we share the same birthday.  I've learned that Mary's birthday was June 29!!  Visit her at Carolina Cards By Mary H.   Us crabs need to stick together!  
Birthday card from Nikki
Birthday goodies
I've managed to unpack three boxes (books only) so far.  It's going to be a slow process but that's o.k.  Actually, it's going to be a project that will forever be evolving.

As always, I'll visit those that end in the same number as me and those that visit me (please leave your number).

Nikki C said...

You so scored in all the ATCs this year Wow and I'm so glad you like all your little treats. Did I put any brads in your package seeing I think I honestly have an addiction not seeking help that and coffee/tea omg what would one do without it. Got a little chuckle out of only getting thru 3 of your book boxes seeing since we moved in here I haven't unpacked more then 3 myself ( been a year on the 15 th lol) I am sure you'll eventually get it all done and refind it all a new home :) have a wonderful day off we plan in going down town to go for a walk. Seeing we just hung out around home last weekend :) hugs Nikki

Love your strategy for visiting the other blogs. Might have to try that one for myself.
Looks like you've received some lovely ATCs.
Glad to hear you're slowly working your way through the boxes but still find time for fun!
Have a great week

Love the ATCs you received. They are my kind of ATCs--meaning the scene on them was made to fit the space. I'm surrounded by people who use big stamps and the like on ATCs then cut them down to size so you only get a portion of it showing. That's just crazy talk if you ask me. Happy belated birthday to you, Kay! It looks like you got some really fun goodies to play with. Enjoy!!! Judy #72

Roberta B said...

It's been a long day full of fun for me but that means this has been my first chance to call by at my blogging friends to see what they have all been up to so I'm sorry for the delay this week.

Mariane C said...

WOW WOW and WOW, Kay what a fantastic desk you have, at least that there is laying there. ;) Thanks for dropping in at my blog (Do you hear the wind whisper) I noticed many of you write a number behind your name, is that how long time you been taking part of this "game"? - I really love what you have done here, Thanks again
Kind regards

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Kay Happy WOYWW and thanks for visiting my desk. Very happy birthday wishes for 29th and love the cards and stash of goodies you received...Unpacking can be a slow thing but at least you revisit what you have and get to set up afresh. Love the carousel what a bargain. I found an index box for $1.50 but I think it's really a butter box from an old fridge...it works for me. Cheers and enjoy your week RobynO#8

Shoshi said...

Happy birthday, Kay, and what a lot of simply gorgeous cards and ATCs! I was really sorry not to be able to take part in the swap this year, but just too much else was going on.

Thanks for your lovely comment - I have got my new circulation booster up and running and it's really helping with the swollen ankles. Also it's a bit cooler, which certainly helps!

Regarding the diet, the 5:2 diet is absolutely do-able because it only affects you 2 days a week, and the rest of the time you can forget it! Your smoothies sound utterly delicious! The trouble with most smoothies is that people think they are really healthy, but in fact they concentrate a lot of fruit and you can be taking in far too much sugar without realising, and they can contribute to weight gain (not to mention enamel erosion on the teeth!) but yours sounds very healthy!

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #23

Mindy Adams said...

OOOh goodies for your birthday... Happy Belated birthday. My daughters is the 26th and she says that all the time. Looks like you will be having fun with all your new goodies.

Thanks for stopping by to visit as always I love to get comments. In regards to my die cuts, they are one of the smaller in the set of Spellbinders that I have. I then punched a hole in all of them so they would all be tags. As a matter of fact I'm posting a video on them right now.

Hope you have a great week and a wonderful WOYWW

Hi Kay, so glad your ATC arrived. Love Brigita's palm tree ATC, you can almost feel the heat from that beautiful sunset. You look like you received some fabulous goodies from Nikki too. Unpacking the box's of books is a good move, if you get fed up of unpacking you can get yourself a refreshing iced tea, sit down, put your feet up and read a good book !! Hugs Lottie #64

Neesie said...

Hey Kay I'm here...finally! ;D
It feels like years since I popped in to visit and wouldn't you know it I've missed your Birthday. I hope you celebrated well and enjoyed the day.
You've certainly a fantastic stash to work through. Have fun!

Hello Kay ... thanks for popping by my blog earlier this week - SO sorry it has taken me a while to get back to you but I have no idea where the hours slip by to! Yes, that butterfly is a stamp and it sure did call to me too and I just had to get it ... it is HUGE and simply stunning. It is the Swallowtail Butterfly from Stampin' Up.
I have an ATC left from the WOYWW anniversary and I'd be very happy to send it to you (no swap necessary!) ... if you'd like it to add to your collection then email me your address and I will get it in the post! Happy Birthday and Happy WOYWW'ing! Love Debbie xXx
