ATCs and WOYWW Week 158

Hello Fellow WOYWWers and Blog Friends

I am not sure where the last week went but here we are again, all sharing our desks with Julia over at
http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/.  If you want to see what it is all about or you would like to join in, please pop over and visit Julia.

Firstly I wanted to show my next stash of beautiful ATCs that I have received this week.


They are from Joanne, Lorinda, Ros A, Trace, BJ and the red card and large ATC are from Kathryn.  I thank you all again, they are all beautiful and have come from UK, Australia, and USA.  How lucky am I?

Next is my desk, very untidy as I have had a busy crafty week, entered a couple of challenges and made OH a perpetual calendar, it is very grungy and plain with just a few cogs and a clock for decoration (as requested by himself).  The sentiment on it says 'The Future Comes One Day At A Time' which I thought was quite appropriate.



I still have unfinished jobs on my desk too, the blue topped box has only had one coat of paint and there is a black and orange twin arch to be decorated too.

Hope you enjoyed your visit, keeping it short as Julia prefers this.  If you do visit I hope you will leave me a comment and I will try my best to return the compliment.  I don't think I can keep up 100 visits per week but I will visit as many of you as I can.  Happy WOYWW, Crafty hugs, Anne x

  6. Sorry that desk only JUST qualifies as "untidy" - you will have to make MUCH more of a mess to snatch the Chaos Crown from some of us :)

    Lovely ATCs...and (?) perpetual calendar?

    Happy WOYWW

  18. Hi Anne I see some very pretty altered Ikea drawers on your desk! The calendar looks like fun project. It is so nice when something is beautiful and practical. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 14

  19. That perpetual calendar is a great idea. I must look out for something like that to "alter". Your ATCs are a lovely collection. I think our mail going "north" is much quicker than your mail coming "south". Oh, and your desk is quite creatively messy but it is not untidy. Happy WOYWW!

  22. Certainly have enjoyed my visit and like your ATCs very much. You deserve them. The desk looks like work in progress, good business.
    Thanks for visiting me - the little bits are a pain but I have a great little brush from Judikins which sweeps up all manner of glitter, paper bits and EP. Also use the little vacuum that I posted some time ago. I've nearly got the die-cut right but it is the most difficult one I've ever tackled. Others have been so easy.

  36. The perpetual calendar is very cool! I have fallen in love with the sea horse stamp you used on the ATCs you made -- I wonder who makes it? It's "just right" -- not too cutesy, not too grungy. Happy WOYWW from Laura #109

  38. Brill ATCs and I love that calender, what a great gift idea for a guy! I'm glad you liked my display/storage ideas. I hate that so many of my ATCs have to be in folders and never looked at but it is hard to display them. They cheer me up no end when I'm in my craft room. Thanks for popping by to see me, Cindy #39

  39. Singing.... "It's a small world after all..." I just followed a link from Trace's blog to see who made that funky lady ATC with the specs. Imagine my grin when I saw it was you!

  40. There is a great 'feel of inspiration' when I view your desk and not messy at all.

  41. Great ATCs, Anne! I'm so glad I've joined in the swap, even if rather late in the day - I've already had a couple and am starting to send out mine.

    I love your calendar! What a great idea!

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog - so glad you like my poppies. As for my desk being tidy, I'm afraid that's an illusion of mega proportions - just outside the camera's range were heaps of stuff, and there are heaps of stuff on the floor too - it's getting that I can't STAND the mess and have to do something about it!!

    Sorry to be so late commenting. I've been having problems with Blogger and couldn't see any of my comments yesterday.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
