What a Mug!

WOYWWc2303

Well here we are another day ... another desk :0)

But if you wanna see my desk today ... you gotta aim high ... It is up on cloud 9 with me and we have no intention of coming down anytime soon :0) Thank you all sooooo much for making my birthday a truly wonderful day!WOYWW2403

Now for all you WOYWWers ... a treat ... I have done a swing ... to show you my new Cosco metal filing wotsit all erected by the wonderful Dan! It is now organising my TSS metal! While you are there ... checkout my screen saver :0)

WOYWWa2403 Now to the mug reference. I need to set the scene. I have a bessie mate who I love dearly. I cannot say she is non crafty because that is not true ... but she is not obsessed like the rest of us ... yet! She is an extremely talented and intelligent Human Resources consultant and is a wonderful Mother to two wonderful children and a wonderful wife to a wonderful husband! Get the picture ... she is wonderful! We have never had a cross word in the 25 years I have known her. She makes me feel special every time I see her and when I don't see her she makes me feel special because I know she will always be my friend and when I am with her I feel like I can do anything!

She listens to my obsessing of Lord Tim of Holtz ... you know Tim ... the man that can build a house out of one grain of sand with just a tiny attacher and three rivet brads! WOYWWb2303 ... without a clue of who I am talking about! Well just look at what she got me for my birthday ... I LOVE LOVE LOVE it ... pictures of Tim ... pictures of my Craft Stamper cover ... pictures of John Travolta in my favourite film Pulp Fiction ... and words that she has clearly researched carefully ... A real treasure and a truly thoughtful gift ... What a lucky girl I am!

Right then guys ... go find Julia and join in with WOYWW ... no excuses this week ... none of your ... I don't know how to play ... or my desk aint tidy enough ... or I don't have a desk ... just get and do it ... I promise you will have the best time and meet some truly lovely bloggers en route!

I am off to refill my mug ... I shall bring it when I visit you!

What a great gift, she obviously knows you well and put lots of thought and love into that (no pressure for you next time it's her birthday then - lol!).

Burnice said...

Just fantastic Linda. What a pal you have there. You know what they say - the oldens are the best !!! Have fun drinking, sucking, licking or whatever out of your mug but whatever you do don't DRIBBLE - it's not very becoming!!!

Julia Dunnit said...

See a friend is someone who understands you totally and never needs to get you! Awesome thoughtful gift that. I likeyour new filing trays..but really - all that for a few sheets of metal?!! *g*

Glen said...

Aww...what a great friend you have Linda. That mug is FAB. Imagine what she might do for your 50th!! Love the metal trays. They look similar to the cube metal frames I bought from Betterware, only in white. I'm glad you had a wonderful birthday. ;-) TFS. ~Glen~

Mandy - Crafty Angel said...

omg your mug.....WOW!! the lord himself and craft stamper!!! my two favs in this world! what a beautiful sentiment your friend researched too, she is a keeper, a true god-honest-to-good friend. xx

Carmen said...

I must admit my first thought was how much has this cup been licked already?? LOL! Don't wear the picture out now! What a fabulous gift - my sister did something similar with my Alice Cooper concert pictures on a mug for my Christmas pressie. The pics where he is shaking his maracas funnily enough... NO-ONE is allowed to touch that mug now on pain of death. What a fabulous friend you have there.

I will definitely make sure I come and say hello at the show. What stall will you be at? You'll know I'm me as I'll be the one with the bright blue Alice Cooper tote... and the disgustingly skinny and tall blonde willowy person that passes herself off as my daughter. Think I must have brought the wrong baby home!! LOL! Thank you so much for your lovely words, Ive been really good today and only eaten what a normal person should. Blimey my stmach feels like my throats been cut, talk about feeling faint! *g*

Clare said...

What a great mug!

Helen said...

I am so jealous! What an amazing friend you have. I would be scared to use it, and as you may have seen, there isn't much space round my place to keep it safe - but please bring it with you!! See you at AP.

What a fab-u-lous gift from your friend!! That is just awesome. When I first glanced at it I thought, "why haven't I seen that mug and why don't I have one?!" Then I saw your photo with Tim. LOL That is just TOO cool!
