WOYWW 500!!!!

Hello  and a Very Happy New Year to all! Gosh 500 weeks of WOYWW - congratulations Julia!
Don't know what I'm on about then follow the link and join in the fun!
I have no craft to show you today. I was crafting up to Christmas Eve , then it was cleared away to make room for visitors- my sons and their families. Had some happy meals at that big table! :-) I didn't take many photos, just enjoying the moment!

So here it is

  The spot I usually show you :-)

Below a view along the table- at the end some dishes etc waiting to be put away- I have done very little since family left last Friday!

The cloth is my Christmas Craft Cover, I ended up leaving it on
the table - it was so easy to just wipe instead of changing the cloth from inevitable spills :-) 

Below - I did get brushos out- but only to show someone 😉

I hope you all enjoyed the festive season. I have still got all decorations up, intend to continue to enjoy until the 6th. I didn't finish decorating until Christmas Eve!!!  I have much I would like to achieve in 2019 - we shall see. There are aspects of my life and crafting I want/ need to change!

I will leave you with this, a  slightly blurry photo

'A Unicorn Down'  - :-)

Our nine year old granddaughter was determined to stay up until midnight on New Year's Eve. She just about did it! She was ready for bed in her Unicorn Onsie - she loves Unicorns -

See you all soon x


  1. I bet your granddaughter slept in yesterday Anne lol. Happy new Year. Hope all your intentions are successful for 2019. Happy WOYWW. Sarah #12

  2. Happy New Year Anne - hope it's happy, healthy and craft filled! Thank you for your beautiful card, so gorgeous xx. I like your Christmas table cloth, perfect to keep clean and bright and cheerful as well. Your GD made me laugh, bless her!!

  4. Hi Anne, she looks totally wiped out, lol. Funny how they will totally force themselves to keep their eyes open. Happy New Year, Hugs, Shaz #5 X

  5. Afternoon Anne. I wish you a very happy and blessed new year. Oh bless - just about made it to new year before giving up and sleeping! Gorgeous photo. I think some of my grandees stayed up - especially Beth, as I reckon she saw her young man who is home from uni... My decorations are still up as well. I rarely take them down before 6th or even 7th Jan - too busy doing other things - and the rooms just look so bare and dull when they are all put away!
    I trust you will see the changes sort themselves out during 2019 - and that you will have a really good year.
    Take care. God bless.

  6. I love your festive table cloth and the photo of your granddaughter... we celebrated the New Year with all three of us in our pyjamas! Wishing you a Happy and Creative New Year. Thanks for Sharing. God Bless, Caro x (#20)

  7. love your table! The only reason I stay up at New Year is to watch the fireworks on tv, otherwise I'd be long in bed! Happy New Year and Happy 500. Helen #2

  8. Hi Anne, Happy New Year and happy 500th WOYWW. Aww bless your grandaughter for wanting to stay up. Children can be so determined! I lost my Christmas table cloth, haven't a clue where I put it last year, and didn't know I had lost it until Christmas Day, so I'm hoping they will be on sale this weekend and I will buy another. Have a lovely week Heather x #33

  9. Hi Anne, lovely tablecloth and great photo of your Grandaughter. Looking forward to another year of friendly creativity. Happy New Year and big hugs, Angela x16x

  10. Happy 500 and Happy New Year!
    Awww what a cute little (sleepy) unicorn you have there!

    All of our decorations inside are now down and stored in their place in the garage.. but the outside lights will keep going until the 5th or 6th :)

    Sumbunneh hugs,

  12. Great photo of your granddaughter! LOL I had a hard time staying up as well. But no cute unicorn pj's for me. Hee hee. Happy New Year. Dorlene #31

  13. Happy New Year Anne! aw bless your grandaughter, and I wonder if she felt it was worth being so tired over! Love that you’re staying Christmassy till 12th night, it’s such anjce way to extend the special time.

  14. Happy New Year Anne, they are so handy those wipeable table clothes. I always take my decorations down on the 6th it's the day of the big new year clean up. The photograph of your Granddaughter will haunt her for years to come hee hee!!
    Happy Woyww & all the best for 2019 Tracey #14

  15. I keep my decorations up till twelfth night too, ie 6th approx, as I’m slow putting them up too Anne, and think the tablecloth very appropriate indeed.
    It looks soo pretty good idea too. Now the onesie is soo cute, isn’t it, and yes all tuckered out. So pleased to know you through WOYWW!
    Happy belated WOYWW 500.
    Hugs Shaz in Oz.x #10

  16. Good for your grand, we barely make it past 10pm (I know that is sad). Happy creative New Year to you! hugs, Kim #30

  17. Sweet picture of a wilting unicorn, Anne, and what a pretty cloth! Thank you for your visit and I'm sorry to be so long replying. We've been really busy and I've been pretty tired too... Sorry you have some family issues and I hope these can be resolved. Glad you liked my kitty pics!

    Happy New Year and Happy Belated 500th WOYWW,
