WOYWW Week 157

Hello Fellow WOYWWers and Fellow Bloggers

Wasn't last week fun!  I would like to say a huge thanks to Julia (http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/) for organising the ATC swap, I thoroughly enjoyed myself and have corresponded with people in the four corners of the earth.  If you want to know more about WOYWW then check out Julia's blog for info.

My post will be very short this week as I have done nothing since last week other than a challenge and also my Tim Holtz tag for June but I am not posting that until Friday.  I thought I would show my desk with some of the ATC swaps that I have received.  Starting at the top left is from Ann B, then May, followed by Trish and on the bottom row, two from Mark and the last one is from BJ.  How lucky am I! And there are more on the way too.  I made a little binder from Kraft envelopes to keep them all safe.


Also on my desk is my Tim Holtz Compendium II, which I have yet to look at and also Craft Stamper, again unopened.  Why?  Well we spent most of the weekend watching all things Jubilee.  I don't know how the Queen feels but I feel totally worn out and I just watched it on TV.

I managed to visit nearly 100 desks last week, not sure I will make so many this week but if you do visit I hope you will leave me a comment and I will do my best to do the same for you.  Crafty hugs, Anne x

  5. Morning Anne, thanks for showing your ATCs, I have done so too. Still loving my gorgeous dolphin from you, not sure I will ever want to put them away. I have a hanger on the wall which ATCs fit in but they get obscured a bit but perhaps I could make a display "thingy" similar using acetate myself. Hmmmm cogs are grinding now LOL - BJ#32

  6. Hi Anne, I think we all have Jubileeitus, I certainly have. Your ATC was fantastic, but then I love all your wonderful work. I still have a few ATC's to send, but you will receive one from me soon. Enjoy your day. Hugs Rita 17 xxx

  8. I visited over 120 blogs last week, and I was exhausted. Especially after I had a hail storm on Wednesday evening and a massive cleanup on Thursday. I was ready for a bit of R and R. I would love to read Tim's book one day, but I doubt my library will have it. I even enjoyed the Jubilee across the pond. Happy WOYWW from #4.

  9. Now that is what I call a tidy desk! You've clearly put so much thought and effort into your ATC swap you may have needed a bit of a break. Mind you, talk about mastering self-restraint! When my CC2 arrived it was (and still is) permanently open - boy is your mojo going to get a further shot in the arm!!
    Can't wait to see your June tag - did you find it easy/hard? I'm just building up the courage to have a go at that one. Hugs as always my crafty friend. Buttons x

  14. You know Anne, I too have not opened CS this month - plus another magazine I bought. I blame the Jubilee celebrations for this lack of activity but wasn't it worth a few days of sitting watching tv as history was made. made me proud to be British. Now we have the Olympics to look forward to - what a year.
    Thanks for sharing your desk, Hugs, Neet #6 xx

  21. You visited how many desks??? Wow that's impressive Anne,
    I've really enjoyed watching all the Jubilee celebrations from here...I've heard so many wonderful comments from the all the Aussies. No-one does the pomp and pageantry as well as the British! I've felt so proud and now looking forward to the Olympics.

  29. I so enjoyed the warmth and love and camaraderie from all around the world last week - in our own way, we are making the globe a better place, I think. I haven't done much either, got to get myself into gear as I've got a couple of fairs coming up!!
    Hugs, LLJ #70 xx

  30. it was a fabulous weekend but even I was thinking poor Queenie I'm sure she wants to escape and just have a cuppa! Looking forward to seeing all the atcs - these look fab! Thanks so much for the visit! Sarah.

    Very cool collection of ATCs there! I agree with the others, getting things in the mail (the old fashioned) way is so much fun!

  32. Great way to store your lovely atc's. I haven't looked at the bbc news site yet today to see the Jubilee roundup of the celebrations, pity the weather was so typical!

  34. Lovely neat desk, Anne, and you've gotten some awesome ATCs! You should have a lie down after all your TV Jubilee exhaustion!

  35. Glad is isn't just me who hasn't done much this week but still some beautiful mini works of art on your desk. I also enjoyed swapping - maybe we will have to persuade Julia to do it again next time.
    Thanks for dropping by earlier - eye seems a bit better and Sorrel is going great guns.

  38. Hi Many thanks for stopping by & for the advice about the silicon glue - I am a bit scared of using a wet glue on a card in case I make a mess - I suppose you have to be super careful ? Ali #42

  39. Oh your ATCs look wonderful. I would have joined in but for Lindsay's bereavement. I'll swap with you if you want though. Email me if you want to do so.
    Hugs Joanne xx

  47. Hello Anne!
    I JUST mailed "Red Anne" today! So watch for her in, not sure how long. We have to fill out these new customs forms, in quadruplicate, at the post office now. So, "she's" in the postal hands now. *sigh*
    Love ya!

  48. Well done for visiting so many desks. Your atc's look wonderful and I also have just got the TH Compendium II which is great. But, even better TH will be in Sydney in a fortnight and I am doing a 2 hour class with his majesty. Just a little bit excited!!!

  50. I am hoping to make it to a few more this week than last week. Because of work commitments, I have been shockingly bad these last few weeks.
    Loving all those ATC's you received.We have had a postal strike for the last 5 months (can you believe it?!)so I have not had any mail unless it had a tracking number and I could pick it up from the depot in 5 months. SOOOOOO Frustrating!
    Happy WOYWW

  51. I'm trying to get to heaps more people this week too. Your ATC's are gorgeous. I've been seeing lots of the ATC's on the blogs, so great to have been part of it.
    Have a great week.

  52. Hi Anne, Those ATCs look great! Wondering if you bought that book, Teeny Weeny Cards? And if so, do you like it? I'm going to the TH workshop with Sandra too. Don't know whether to be excited or stressed!

  56. Beautiful little tag on post above! I'm a bit late getting round the WOYWW desks this week - been busy making 3 more little wedding waistcoats. Have a great week. x Jo

  57. I confess to having some unopened magazines around too. I am hoping this weekend will see me the chance to relax and peruse them. Love the ATCs you've received so far. This has been a fun swap. I like you idea of a special place just for the WOYWW ATCs. I think I'll make myself some kind of book or holder for them.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I didn't make WOYWW this week. Half term and kiddie minding took over. I watched all the celebrations too so not many art pieces this week and a piled up workspace. Not a pretty sight.Interesting ATC's I spy.

  60. Looks like you've got some lovely ATCs there, Anne! What a good idea to make a binder for them all. I've got some transparent ATC holders to go in a loose leaf binder.

    Happy belated WOYWW,
