WOYWW 323 - 2 more sleeps to Stamp Camp

I didn't have anything to show on my desk because I am packing to go to a Stamp camp on Friday for three days, I can't wait woohooo. This is my first stamp camp in Australia that I will be attending. Brookfield Convention Centre Only 40 minutes drive from where I live. It looks like a wonderful relaxing place. I will be taking photos and sharing next week of course and I will have desk photos of what we get up to.
Currently we have a show on at the showgrounds where there is lots to see and prizes to be won. I ventured into the pavilion and saw the craft section, above is the first prize. I see about 7 books folded and joined together.
The above photo shows the Scrapbooking section hmm I think its the wrong section they put the ribbon on LOL, but isnt that carousel gorgeous as well as that box with all the drawers, I see the note saying Creative Section. More craft pictures of the show are HERE

 Lisca asked me last week how I put up the screen on that large garage door in my craft room so I thought I'd show here in case anyone else wanted to know how to do it. Its a white door frame with the mosquito screen attached to it like you attach it to a screen door. It has little tabs to hold the screen to the door and I can just flick it up and remove the screen.
This is the view without looking through the screen, glorious isnt it, well I do look at someone else house but its a bigger and better view and lets a lot of light into the craft room.
This postcard was sent by a fellow WOYWWer Shaz, it is of the Eden Project A History of Flowers
very interesting project thank you Shaz.

I was invited to participate in a global postcard project called Dear Richmond during the UCI Road World Cycling Championship in September.

"Dear Richmond is a global exhibition hosted by Big Planet, Small World. Our goal is to connect cultures and celebrate our unity while highlighting what makes us unique. This is your opportunity to show a world wide audience what you love about your city or share your piece of the world with everyone." 

You can participate too. Either by sending a postcard or visiting the event.

"Stop by our booth at The Championships and receive a free Richmond postcard in return and find out what we think makes our city of Richmond so great.

**please allow enough time for postcards to arrive by August 30, 2015 - send to:

Big Planet, Small World

Joining Julia's Stamping Ground for more views of craftiness around the world.


  1. Bridget it must have been a wonderful outing to attend your show and see all the creativity there (even if it may have been mis-labelled :-)

  2. O wow! There must be lots of amazing things to see in that show!!! Thanks for posting! patsy

  5. Congrats on being number 1 this week! How exciting to be off to a stamp camp for 3 days! And the pictures from the craft show are wonderful (I also took a look at your other post). When I visited Melbourne I went to a craft fair, and also another one when I went to Sydney so I know there are a lot of great crafts over there. I came home with a silver teapot and spoons and forks that were turned into a chime.
    Enjoy your camp! Happy WOYWW!
    Hugs, peggy aplSEEDS@3

  8. Another interesting post Bridget. Those photos of the fair are great. Like Mrs C, I don't see why the 7 rolled up books won.... they look a mess. The paper dress (yesterday) was much more impressive. But I agree, the carousel is lovely.
    Thank you for explaining about the mosquito netting on your garage door. Looking at the photo they are two strips sewn together. I wondered...
    Have a good time at Stamp Camp.

    1. Yes there wasnt a strip of gauze wide enough to do the whole door so there are two strips. I still havent sewn them together yet, I dont think the mozzies know there is a whole there to fly in lol

  9. Do have a wonderful time at the stamp Camp - sounds wonderful. Have a great week . Soojay 22

  10. Wow... I wished that I have been to that show as well... I am so excited when people tells about their visits to such events :) - Thank you ever so much for sharing.
    Kind regards

  11. Hi Bridget, I got your gorgeous ATC, it's featuring on my desk today. So glad you got the postcard. Your stamp camp sounds like it will be wonderful, have a lovely time, won't you? Look forward to the pics. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #14 xxx

  12. The stamp camp sounds fabulous and your Mozzie screen is super clever. Have a great week

  13. I love those show displays! Gorgeous. You must having so much fun--we don't get nearly enough crafty expos where I live. Have a great week! Sandy Leigh #38

  14. What fun to get to go to a stamp show. They are having one a whole day's drive from me this week-end. I would have to stay two nights in a motel. Couldn't find anyone to go with me either! I do like that box with all the drawers; pretty neat! I hope you have fun at the stamp show, and look forward to next week's post. #30

  15. That folded book is amazing! What a clever thing to do. Hope you enjoy the stamp camp and come back with lots of ideas :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 4 xx

  16. Wonderful looking show. Have a great time at stamp camp. Peg CRC 52

  17. That's a very interesting map at the top of your blog, are the other countries actually to size?
    If they are then Australia really is much larger than I thought. I am planning to collect together a few postcards for you but it may be sometime before I can send them. We are going to the East Coast at the end of August and I thought I would try and collect some while I was there. Got your ATC yesterday, many thanks for that, it's lovely and I like the stamp on the envelope too.
    Wishing you a great woyww, Angela x 24

    1. Hello Angela,Surprisingly those other countries are to scale compared to Australia, I googled and measured. Very clever map huh

  18. Oh wow, those folded books are just gorgeous! A Stamp camp you say? That sounds like a lot of fun! Happy crafting and happy woyww, Hug from Sunny Holland Marit #36

  19. Some interesting artwork from the creative show! Hope you have fun at Stamp Camp! Happy WOYWW (a couple of days late) from Laura #48
