WOYWW - May 29th 2013

Well I really wanted to participate this week at WOYWW so I took some pictures before I left for PEI of what was on my desk to  be able to post this Wednesday. 

The bad thing is that my house was broken into this past Monday... my daughter came home to a broken front door!!!  My jewelery was stolen including some items from my MIL who passed away last summer... our passports as well are gone!  Nobody got hurt that's the good thing.

My hubby told me my drawers and personal items were all looked through by the thief...  From what he said the rest of the house was intact.... so technically this is still what's on my desk... I'll see when I get back home tonight from my business trip... I'll be washing all my clothes!!!!   I really really feel violated right now.

So yes back to this post... it's my ATCs for the exchange ;)  But not showing you the front!  I made 8 so I have 7 to exchange extras if you are interested please let me know so that I may contact you!  I've been waiting a year for this event!!!!  lol

Have a great Wednesday and please hope that my flight back and my discovery of my house is not too much of a shock... already didn't sleep at all Monday night...



  1. Bloody hell.... the thieving b*st*rds !!!! Oh, Vicky - that is awful. I hope they curl up and die !!!!
    Sheesh.... there's not much one can say really. :-(

    I have made ATCs too but haven't got my WOYWW post up yet.
    I'd love one of your :-D

  2. Oh my, what an awful thing to happen! Such a shame to lose things of sentimental value, hope there wasn't too much mess. Hugs, Helen, 39

  3. Oh Vicky, poor you, it is not nice to be broken into. It has happened to me before and you feel so violated and the thiefs don't even think about you and what they are stealing. They don't realise that many items may have sentimental attachment or memories attached to things that they have stolen. As that is it, they are just "things" to them!!! I know that it is difficult, but just try to put this behind you. It's ok for me to say that, as it didn't happen to me. As you say at least no-one was hurt, hopefully you can replace some items but not all especially the things that you had that belonged to your MIL. I can't say online exactly what I think of these no-good people who break into other people's houses. Do you know the saying 'what goes around, comes around', they will get there just rewards when the time is right!!!
    Just know that there are people thinking about you and you are always in our thoughts and prayers. Hugs, Jen :-) xx

  4. Oh, Vicky, this is so terrible!
    I understand very well that you want to wash all your clothes!
    I don't know if it helps, but I am thinking of you.

    Hugs, Liv

  5. Sorry to hear about the break in, not nice at all. Fab desk and I love the look of that stamp! Take care Zo xx 79

  6. Oh Vicky I am so sorry this happened to you. It is just awful. Thank God no one was hurt. My prayers will be with you all to be able to get through this. Hugs to all of you, Robin

  7. Oh Vicky I know how it feels for you home to be broken into. It is such a violation and you will find it hard for a while. The thieves have no feelings for sentimental valuables at all. Items you cannot replace are just a means of making cash for them and it is cash that is probably wasted on drugs or drink, not to feed their families. I do sympathise.
    I am wishing that our on line celebrations for the 4th anniversary of WOYWW will cheer you and I would love to swap an atc if you still have some spare. Just email me with your mail address if you can.
    Best wishes Jo x

  8. That is awful that your house was broken into and irreplaceable things stolen! I hope they catch the person who did it.

  9. Hi Vicky
    OMG how dreadful for you and your family I am so very sorry that this has happened to you. I can understand what you are saying about feeling violated.
    I hope you and your family can find strength from each other to help you through this and I hope the person who did it gets caught and you get your stuff back.
    Wishing you and everyone a Very Happy WOYWW today

  10. Oh how awful for you Vicky. I hope that they catch whoever is responsible and that you get your MIL jewellery back.

  11. Vicky, I'm so sorry to hear about your break in. And you are right- it's the things that have sentimental value that just can't be replaced. At least no one was hurt if they would have come when someone was home. Good luck in the recovery.

  12. Vicky - what a start to come home and find someone has invaded your safe haven. Hope you will not be too long in feeling comfortable in your own hoe very soon. Have fun with the WOYWW4. #47

  13. So sorry to hear about your break in - how awful for you ! I hope you get back safely from your trip - I know how awful it is to be stuck away when things are going wrong at home ! Would love an ATC if you have a spare one ! Ali #23

  14. I just can't imagine what you are going through. We had our car stolen once and taken for a joy ride and then dumped with beer bottles and muck and grass (the non smoking kind) all over the place, and that was enough of a feeling of being violated. A home is a whole other issue. These creeps obviously came in with a goal in mind if they didn't go after all the big ticket items. I'm so sorry that you and your family are having to deal with this. Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Big hugs,

    p.s. good thing you got the washing machine fixed!

  15. Hi Vicky and Happy WOYWW! Hope that you get home and things are not too bad. I remember my family being robbed when I was young and you truly do feel violated knowing that someone has gone through all your personal belongings.
    Looks like you are the recipient of my anniversary ATC. Just drop me an email at and I will pop it in the mail.
    Hugs and good wishes,

  16. Vicky SOOOOO sorry to hear about the breakin!! Glad to hear your daughter didnt get home sooner. It is a terrible violation not to mention losing precious items. Maybe check pawn shops for the jewelry, hope it can be recovered!

  17. Oh darn and blast them thieving idiots to somewhere toasty warm!! I am so sorry, what an absolutely awful thing to have to come home to. Annette #2

  18. Oh Vicky this is horrible. It is so horrible to lose things that are irreplaceable. Thinking of you as you return home to your family.
    I would love to swap with you and will email you direct. Huge hugs, Jenny #102

  19. Hi Vivky...just got back from crafting at my neighbours...her husband worked late and so I packed up and went there as her kiddies were in bed. Just got home to see your happy request...I would love to trade with you. I don't have that official stamp on the back of mine but I am going to want to find one now!!!
    It looks wonderful.
    I have emailed you my address...let me know yours!

  20. Oh Vicky I'm so very sorry to hear you've been broken into. It's the value of special things that can't be replaced and the fact that your things have been handled that makes it all so difficult. I'm sending you a big hug.
    I have spare ATCs if you'd like to swap....just send me your details to if you'd like to put ?France on my map [see my last week's WOYWW post if you don't know what I mean :-) ].
    Happy 4th Birthday celebrations...and here's to many more.

  21. OOMG OMG how terrible! (We once had all our Christmas food and some pressies taken from our car once but this is so much worse! I hope they are found and their necessaries chopped off! Your desk looks fabulous! (as always, filled up with loads of things to do or waiting to do! Have a happy 4th WOYWW!! and if there's a spare swap count me in!

  22. I’m sorry to be late in visiting but I’m still on my quest to get round everyone this week. I know it’s going to take some time, but I wanted to say that it’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

    Oh Vicky, what a shock. I so pleased that no was there and got hurt but it doesn’t detract from the fact that some low life had the audacity to enter your homo and riffle through your belongings and take things that were sentimental to you and can never be replaced. Let’s hope the catch the *%$£@2d’s.
    On a happier note, your desk was looking great and the ATC’s look very interesting.

    Enjoy your weekly snoop, especially as we’re celebrating WOYWW’s 4th Anniversary.
    Happy Crafting!

  23. Thanks for stopping by, Happy WOYWW4 and I sent you the email with my address. Where did you find the rubber stamp with the ATC info on it.?I've looked for a long time and haven't come up with one yet I do ATC swaps and this would be so handy. .Enjoy a great week, I'm taking a break from rhubarb !! pie, jam, cobbler and still raining.

  24. I'm so sorry about the break-in, Vicky. What makes certain people believe they have the right to do that kind of thing? Next, I'll freely admit that I'd never be brave enough to take a pic of my work area -- far too messy. lol
    Then, I'm extending my apologies for not commenting on each of your recent posts. I love all your cards. As usual, you've been wonderfully productive and I have managed to browse through all of them. I'm just so far behind on visiting my fav blogs, what with having been gone so much, but I'm determined to get around to everyone. Hugs, and I hope your return home is a better experience than what happened.

  25. That is horrible, I was going to say HAPPY WOYWW, but maybe not so happy for you.
