What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 468

Well, against some odds, we've made it to the ninth anniversary of this crazy nosy desk sharing!
Well done y'all. A medal in the shape of a badge is available to anyone who hasn't got one and a very large big huge cyber hug too.

Actually, that's become the essence of WOYWW. It's a friendly place; as much as we want to look around your work space, so we want to know that all is well in your world. I know that by the miracle of this internet thingy, friendships have been forged and conversations go on without the WOYWW boundary and I'm a little bit proud of that. Nine years, good grief. It's like snapchat for the tenacious!

Now, the PIF thingy. If you've made an ATC to celebrate and want to receive one too, when you link your desk today, add an asterisk (*) to your name. Your ATC should go to the next person with an asterisk(*) on the list below your name. The first person on the list above you with an asterisk(*) against her name will send one to you. The last * person on the list sends to me, and I send to the first * person on the list. That makes the circle. And a perfect one it is too. As always, if you forget to link with an asterisk next to your name, link again. I'll try to be super available to delete superfluous links. Don't worry about them, they won't do any harm or cause anything worse than the odd swear word. 
Also don't worry if you haven't made one or don't feel you can for any reason, it's not a requirement. The requirement stays the same...put WOYWW in your post title and link here so that we can visit. And as always, please accept this as my 468th thank you.
And here's my desk...some things don't change in nine years!

Neet said...

Have sent you a "jog" but not sure you will get it.
Excitement week with the anniversary. Congratulations on such an achievement - nine years of enabling fun and friendship amongst so many. Thank you Julia for giving me a reason for getting up early on a Wednesday.
Your desk - well, it is clear this morning but I see the glasses and the deck chair are there so all is well.
Happy Anniversary my friend.
Hugs, Neet xxx

Sarah Brennan said...

Happy anniversary, no linky again! I am in for the PIF * Sarah #?

Robyn said...

and i will have an * behind my name with an extra to send- doesn't have to be a swap!

Mrs.D said...

Morning all, and not only has Mr Linky gone on strike, but it seems Mr Google is refusing to post my comments. This is my third attempt.
So in the hope that someone other than me gets to read it,
Julia your desk makes me jealous, May not be much happening, but it is a space for work to happen and thanks for all your hard work over the past 9 years.

Heather M said...

Hi Julia! Happy 9th Anniversary! Can't link ... but I'll try again at lunch time! If not I'm afraid it will be this evening ... but I am swapping ATCS xx

Tracey@Hotchpotchcreations said...

Happy 9th WOYWW Anniversary wishing you all a wonderful one and will catch up with you all later.
Hugs Tracey xx

Helen said...

well I am off to work now and the link is still missing... I am swapping though so if someone can link me with an * that would be fab, I can't do it from my phone. catch you all tonight

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

In my haste to let you know the linky didn't work (shades of Anniversary 3 or 4), I failed to show my manners. I want to let you know how much I appreciate you, your kindness over these last 9 years, your humor, and your caring attitude. You are a perfect example of why blogging is still alive and doing well. Thank you for nine years and for many, many more.

Happy 9th Birthday WOYWW. I have ATCs to post out (with 3 spare for whoever would like one). Will come back on later to see if the linky thing is present. Here is my blog link

Annie said...

Hehehe it all works so well usually 😂😂😂😂 I bet you’ve been so excited about the Anniversary celebrations that you’ve forgotten to add Mr Linky to the party.
Thanks as always.

glitterandglue said...

Hi again. Yes - I'm swapping and would love an asterisk by my name if any one links me in... I'll keep checking as the day goes by thanks!

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

Happy anniversary! What a marvellous achievement - 9 years and still going strong - I'm sure the Linky will be up soon enough, so I'll check back later. It's good in a way because we'll be posting links all at the same time, so there's no way of knowing where we will fall! It's all part of the fun :)

Annie said...

In my excitement to get my name first on the list I forgot my asterisk....oooops sorry xxxx

Twiglet said...

Brilliant - I'm not usually up early enough to get to No 5!! Thanks for keeping WOYWW going all these years - you are a treasure and just look at the fun and friendship you have kept bubbling along. Happy 9th anniversary and here's to many more. xx Jo #5

Neet said...

Confused now, I have Bleubeard above and below me - is Elizabeth doing it twice?
Hugs, Neet xx 13

Morning!! Happy Anniversary!! I have linked, but not I think to the right place. Disaster trying to rely on iPad and phone for blogging. I give up. Off for a walk to the farm shop. Have a nice day!

Wow, 9 years of WOYWW! Amazing. And it's all down to you, Julia - thank you so much for doing this and giving us all the opportunity to make new friends and get lots of inspiration from each other. Sorry not to be joining in the swap but I'm just getting myself back on my feet again. Happy WOYWW to you and everyone, and I look forward to seeing all your ATCs!

Hi Julia, and thank you for this fabulous group. Happy & proud to be a part of it. Laughing at your comment about mean, but that's because everyone here is so lovely!I can be as mean and verbally vicious as hell if my buttons are pushed. My ex hubby would vouch for that. :)
I would love one of the new badges, when you get a chance. That's as good as any medal. Lots of love and hugs, along with thanks for all the fab friends I've made because you started this. Happy 9th birthday. Shaz XXXXX #6

Sharon Madson said...

Oh, Julia, I made it to your WOYWW Anniversary! I think, with moving I haven’t blogged in months! Like I have said other years to you, THANK YOU! About five years ago, (and I missed my own Blog Anniversary), I started blogging and I was just kind of floating out there by myself until I was pointed to WOYWW. I Have met so many wonderful people and made some wonderful friendships since joining in with WOYWW! Oh, and have been enabled to want and buy, so many things, too! For example, I now am proud owner of a Book Chair! Hmm..who enabled me to do that? And I have heard about and tried so many new techniques. It was one WOYWW that I first heard about a Geli Printing Plate. Of course, I now have one of those. LOL. The list goes on! Sending lots of hugs, of thanks Julia for the 9th Anniversary! #30

Kelly said...

Happy Anniversary, dear Miss Julia!
I'm one of those who forgot her * so if you could delete my first one, very much appreciated. Extra goodies your way for your trouble.
So blessed to be a part of this amazing group of nosys.

Have to ask.. what's that big blue disk in the center of your table that the tape is one? Looks like a furniture slider. What do you use it for?
Creative Blessings! Kelly

Stacy Sheldon said...

Happy Anniversary Julia :) I love how big your window is and I am curious about the big circles tucked in under the chair station. ~Stacy #36

Monica said...

Goodmorning sweetie and congratulations on 9 years of 'desks'... you are awesome!!! Big, sunny hug from the Netherlands! Marit #27

Lindart said...

Happy Anniversary Julia! I need to tell you how grateful I am that I found you 7 years ago. . .I don't think I would be blogging every week if it weren't for you, and I have made so many friends across "the pond", that I know if I ever went to England, Wales, Spain, Australia, there would be someone there that I know! THANK YOU!!!!! Lindart #37

Lindart said...

OOPS! Left my Anniversary comment on last weeks post by mistake! Please go and read it! Thanks, Lindart

Shoshi said...

Thank you for your visit, Julia, and your comment made me smile back atya lol! That chopping board was rather special - all the cracks on the surface had been filled with copper and the whole thing polished to a satin smoothness. It was a magnificent piece of wood that must have weighed a ton. Yes, it probably was overpriced but you had to see it to realise just how special it was.

I'm feeling better each day, and it's such an unaccustomed feeling, feeling well - I've been poorly for so long that I'd forgotten I could feel as good as I do now. Still a way to go but each day I'm getting more back to normal and picking up the threads of my life again. My hubby and I went out for our anniversary meal this evening - 32 years ago today! (Where did THAT time go?) So glad you like the card I made for him. He made me an adorable one - a pen and watercolour of two little teddies holding hands. He loved the card I made for him and instantly recognised the County Show inspiration!


Kim said...

Oh No! In making sure I visit all the desks, I haven't posted on yours!! Thank you once again for keeping this creative community going for 9 years!! It has been a joy to get to know you and everyone else if only through the web.
Have a wonderful week, and here's to another 9 years!!
