WOYWW- 7 July 2010

All kind of things on my desk for WOYWW:

1. 6 Tags that have arrived from the June altered tag swap on UK Scrappers. The theme was "A Midsummer Nights Dream" - all of which are very different and very lovely. Thanks ladies!

Above - By New2This (Frances)

Above: By Cynthia

Above: By me (I think someones tags got lost in the post so I got one of my own back)

Above: By Scrapelephant (AKA Helen)

Above: By LEBOSI

Above: I dont know who this is by because she didnt put her name on it!

2. Fabric artwork, jewellery, be-jewelled flip flops and printed fabrics all from Tanzania from our lovely Tanzanian exchange student Mayvees who is staying with us for a while.

My daughter has been involved in raising money for the Tanzania exchange at school (which need to total £60K by July next year). Our Tanzanian friends have been enjoying the English weather for the past couple of weeks and getting used to our British ways. Mayvees was so kind to bring some of these fantastic traditional items to give to us. I hope we have given her some lovely memories to take back with her next week.
So far we have made her sit through "Mamma Mia" the movie, been bowling (which she had never done before - but still came 3rd and told us it was beginners luck)! We showed her the indoor ski slope - and this was the first time she has ever seen snow and then we frightened her half to death by showing her the indoor sky-diving! Tonight we are off to the cinema to see Shrek 4 in 3D and buy mobile phones for her friends and tomorrow we have to have fish n chips. Friday is a Ceilidh dance before Warwick castle on Saturday. Phew....


  1. I believe in fairies!! Love that tag!
    It sounds like your having a really good time with Mayvees, am wondering where a photo is of her though!

  2. Beautiful tags - what a shame some got lost in the post. I have started sending everything recorded delivery now.

  3. ooo I love your new gifts, how wonderful, those patterns are gorgeous. Hope you haven't scarred her for life lol I am sure she has had a great time and will go back with awesome memories, maybe you should make her a little mini book to take back with her, mind with all those activities I doubt you have time.

  4. Fab flip flops and I might just believe in fairies now.

  5. lots of loveliness there girls:)

  6. glad you're having fun with the exchange student! what lovely pieces she brought you :)
