Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

A Bounteous WOYWW 313

Hullo there everyone.. well, another "desky" share as it is Wednesday again!! and that means the great worldwide Blog-hop around desks of the world for WOYWW or What is On Your workdesk Wednesday.. pop over to our chief's desk for the link up, at Julia's Stamping Ground! 
To my desk:
Well today shares this weeks happy mail. The SB Exquisite Labels 11 to right of centre is from Glenda of Magpie's Craft Corners candy (woohoo!!!!! thank YOU dear, kind Magpie!).
All the rest of marvellous delights are from WOYWW'ers!! Yup! a total of 17 ATC Debbie's wonderful tag,  Annie's card, and also few cute star diecuts thrown in .. mailed Downunder by the Queen of Desks, Julia Dunnit.. (and rather think she did do it, eh?). I just wish you could've seen my face when collected post and saw..  and then opened all this bounty .. blown away is an understatement.
There is also on left an inky duster, DI ink pads piece of card with embossing paste and ink dusted on it but not sure I like it yet will leave it and see if grows on me..was for male birthday on 7th June but given up on getting it  there in time.. this year.

Why I received such bounty I must admit I am bit unsure. I have sent one atc to my PiF!!
However I truly am deeply appreciative, so a BIG gi-normous THANK YOU  for all the loving care and design from the WOYWW crop.. this will be my thanks will also go around to say "Thank YOU" to all blogs, or as many as can find but already cant find Fiona's ... unless it is Fiona from Staring at the sea - the email addy is different so wasn't sure.
I know RosA was in on it cos she asked me which atc I would like
(she sent me a pickie and I chose the koala), no need to swap she said.. I have actually made one for her too but it is still sitting here, not sent as just finished it as many of you know this year has had its ups and downs health wise.




this had lovely metallic look, was lost in photo, sorry Debbie.
My card hidden on last week's desk for a special little someone aged 3 years, hand cut copied from Pinterest.
Today's Aussie shot downunder down at the jetty.. yes it is wintery sky downunder but still days of lovely sunshine even if it is bit cool, but it is much warmer than UK as was talking to family over there on Saturday 10c max there 21c max here .. why do they live there I still wonder?? actually didn't notice before but this is bit blurry .. sorry.
 Again... THANK YOU ALL @ WOYWW crop - for such wonderfully, kind, caring friends.
I pray the LORD will return your kind generosity a hundredfold.
Thanks so much every one for popping over for a peek as chat, and may God bless your day wherever you may be!  
I will comment as able ~ may take 'til next week but will get there :D

Lucky having it warm in Oz still.
Only thing that would ever stop me from moving there is all the spiders LOL #31

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Shaz, I agree the ATc's were beautiful- and it was a pleasure to send you one via our Julia! Your weather does indeed beat ours- it has been so windy here for the last few days, you'd not think we are almost at Midsummers Day. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #9 xx

Happy creating and happy wowyww,

Neet said...

Who could not miss sending you an atc. But I see mine has not arrived? Oh heck, hope it did not get lost in the post. Did send one to you, afterall we were actual "meeters up" once a long time ago. I am going into the city next Monday as Chas has an exam there so we will meet up for lunch later. It always reminds me of you, especially if I go past Boots Chemists where we arranged to meet.
Hope you are well.
Hugs, Neet xx

What lovely post, Shaz. It's such fun to get happy post isn't it?
I am deeply envious of your lovely 21 degrees. It's been like winter again here but this afternoon has turned lovely and sunny so fingers crossed it lasts awhile.
Have a good week.
Hugs Lisax #20

Looks like you are very love Shaz! I love seeing all those fabulous ATC's, all unique and beautiful. I also love your picture, so beautiful at the jetty. That sky is looking very wintry and it gets to looking like that here too. I don't want to see this sky here in the US until Dec though! lol I would love to visit Aussie as I think it is such a beautiful area but I doubt I would ever leave the US. lol I don't like flying and I'm a chicken on a ship, don't like the water at all unless it is my swimming pool water. Won't go out into the ocean water! lol Chicken like I said. But I can live it through your beautiful pictures Shaz! Hugs, Brenda

Tertia said...

Man its good to be back visiting al my 'old friends' from WOYWW. I really missed it and I am so bummed, I missed the whole birthday exchange this year! Oh well, next year I plan to be back with a vengeance.
Sorry to hear you have been having a bad year with your health, hope its all cleared up soon. Thank you for visiting already and for your kind words.
Happy WOYWW!

RosA said...

I still owe you the "real" ATC - with the other koala :)
Was trying to leave comments yesterday (at home) but my laptop wouldn't co-operate (I think I told you that before). Hope you had some success at the dentist this morning.

The button flower is just too cute and the heart winged birdie even more so. Thank you so much for sharing your very beautiful art with us this week at Word Art Wednesday on our 186th Challenge.
