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 country...to 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
Dear Richmond Project
P.O. Box 1512
Richmond, VA. 23218 USA"


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

  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!

  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.

  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

  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
