WOYWW 156 - time to celebrate

Crumbs, three whole years of WOYWW, although I wasn't in at the start it's a super fun idea! Clever Julia!

Here's my desk today, as it was left yesterday afternoon:
Snort, the mess is still to the right out of shot, a bit less there but not much different and this is what I was playing with just before the wine waiter called me for a glass of wine and a sit out in the late afternoon warmth.

We have, usual mug of coffee to the left, ink pads and such to be put away, a couple of clean stamps also to put away, blank ATCs and envelopes to the back left, spare camera battery awaiting charge in front of those and the rest is card making Jubilee stuff I've been toying with. Totally love the Portobello Road papers and buttons! The little plastic box holds Union Flag pennants I've been snipping out of paper chain strips bought ages ago from Hobbycraft - just as well as I was in there yesterday and the place had been raided in readiness for this coming weekend! You can see the paper chain strips poking out of the basket in fact.

OK, I've been persuaded by my buddy Sarn to join in the ATC swop - so that's why there's some ATC stuff out in readiness. I know, should have made them earlier but until yesterday I truly wasn't going to join in as I've never made one before! I worked on them after the photos was taken - good fun too, I could be hooked now. Some extra ones are going to bloggy friends' :)


Right, too many words as always - so do hop over to Julia's here, go peek at some fun work spaces and remember to join in the ATC swop if you fancy it!

  7. i blame it on the sunshine too - and me being blonde!! i thought you were asking for kyla's address in your comment on her blog, not the other way round... i misread it - sorry! i'm afraid, i'm getting confused with all the double entries today... so i'm sending to kyla and she's sending to you, and you are sending... right???

  11. Hi Di

    Never done an ATC before either but would be happy to swap with you. I'm also swapping with Sarn, she has kindly said she'd send hers first so l understand what is involved, it's exciting isn't it?

    I took a picture of my desk last night but have forgotten to include in my post today, doh! Will have to join WOYWW next week!

    Have a great day you afternoon sun wine slurper xx

  15. I don't subscribe to Crafts Beautiful any more, but still get it sometimes! Not this time yet though.
    And something in my head, just seen your St Lukes Lovely on your side bar, is that the challenge site that likes you to send i the cards you added to their challenge? Coz if it is I think I owe them one from ages ago! (I think it got sent off and then I just forgot)
    Happy WOYWW

  17. Hello Di, that's a very patriotic looking desk your revealing this week. I have to admit that I've only made a few ATCs, a very few, and I'm never sure if I have got it right. However, I've discovered that they make great toppers for cards when finished :) Happy WOYWW and enjoy what's left of the day. Elizabeth x #96

  19. Hi Di,

    If all of your ATCs aren't spoken for yet, I'd like one. I'll email you my mailing address - and please email me yours (I know I have it somewhere - but where, I don't know) and I'll send you one of mine.

    Those goodies on your desk look very inviting!!
    Hugs,

  25. It is look pretty organized in your neck of the woods-different projects at the ready. Fun jubilee things to play with. A friend borrowed my British set to make some jubilee things. Glad to hear you could be hooked on ATCs. I have a love/hate relationship with them. Love them! Hate them!

  27. I love all the British/Jubilee stash around at the moment, but as we have no children or family around us there aren't any special parties for us this weekend, so sadly no cards or scrapbooking to do. Happy WOYWW. Ali x #171
