WOYWW 208 The Four Year Anniversary Special
It is a really exciting day...the fourth Anniversary of Julia's brainchild...What's On Your Workplace
Every Wednesday for the past four years, scores of bloggers visit the crafty goodness that lies on worktops around the globe. Today is even more fun as we have a ATC swap going on.. Names marked with an asterisk are sending to the next person after them that indicates an asterisk. Some bloggers, me included have done a few extra and will provide details on how to arrange a swap with them.
You can join in the fun and see what all the fuss is about by popping over to Julia's Stamping Ground.
Well, my desk is a little muddled at the moment. I make cards with my next door neighbour every Wednesday evening... so I've already cleaned my long worktop where we work together. We will do a card kit that we takes turns assembling and bringing for each other. It is her turn tonight so fun, fun, fun!
In the interim I am working on assembling the last of my ATC's on the extra desk I keep if our 3rd friend pops by. Although I am keeping my finished ATC design hidden, you can see I have the backings laid out on the desk for some extras I am making of another style
The bits and pieces are hidden off to the right hand side and are laid out on a grid, all ready to assemble. I am just in the process of stamping my inspirational word and then embossing these backgrounds...hopefully that straightens them out!!!
They are my first try ever with Tim Holtz stains and with sprays...I think I muddled the colours a bit but as they are supposed to have a look of the sea...I think it will be OK. Just off to the left is my Big Shot with the basket of EF just out of camera view.
Behind the Big Shot is a basket of thrift shop lace and ribbon I featured here about 6 weeks ago. It is still not ironed and put away...instead I threw it all askew into a pretty basket and I'm pretending it is supposed to look that way! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
The ribbon rolls at the far back are for some mermaid/sea themed cards I hope to start on tomorrow. I have the images all coloured and hope to make 6 or 8 cards over the next couple of days.
To the right are few little plastic boxes that need put away, a vase of odds and ends that need put away and ....well, you can see the theme going on over here on the right! This is usually my Christmas station...only baskets, drawers, boxes etcaof Christmas themed elements are supposed to be over here...Well...sigh...I guess that is in a perfect world...teehee
So now you have seen my desk...warts and all...full of items that need corraled and put back in their place but hey, ho...what's a girl to do when she's busy creating!!!
I have four extra ATC's to trade...for address details etc, you can reach me at:
Yes, that is a figure one after my moniker!
