WOYWW 151 A Big Mess

                                                                my lovely gifts
Hi Everyone, It's that time again when the big snoop takes place of us all having a nose around the worlds desks..... Well mine this week I can only describe as a Big Mess!!!! I'm in my faffing around mode this week getting no-where fast.... need to sort by Friday so will get me apron & duster at the ready to have a wee tidy up... ( thats the plan anyway)..

The second picture is my wonderful surprize package from Lynn... A big thank you Lynn this is soooo kind of you to send me one of your Fabulous ATC's ... I had stated that I had never made a ATC before and Lynn kindly sent me one of her Amazing doodle birds and a couple of blank ATC's, a badge, two beautiful postcards and a lovely card...  Please pop over and have a look at Lynn's fabby blog it's full of inspiration... www.oneimadeearliertoday.blogspot.com/
Well if you are wondering what I am going on about visiting desks, pop over to the lovely Julia at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/  and join in but Be warned its addictive but fun... Hugs May x x

Messy desks are creative desks in my book anyway. Good luck with your tidy by Friday. Your gift looks lovely!

RosC said...

That's a fine desk, and a wonderful bucket of Copics. I like to work on paper for some things as you do. The craft sheet isn't the whole answer.

Nice project and these all art looking excellent i really very impressed by that and now i want a new more arts. You are very creative. I impressed by that.

Susan Flynn said...

You have to be messy to be creative May - that's my excuse and, believe me, I am not budging! Love all that sparkle going on xx

Julia Dunnit said...

Pretty colours you're working with Mary..I don't see a mess to be honest! I do see two very different sets of stamps, the cute tilda and then the seriously lovely SA type at left - what a versatile crafter you are!

Minxy said...

I have to disagree, i'd say that's a small to medium mess. And anyways it looks like a work in progress so technically it doesn't count.
Happy WOYWW

What a sweet surprise package!!! And your desk doens't look messy...it looks like there's lots of crafty goodness going on over there!!

Sorry you couldn't find the hidden badge. I may have hidden it a little too good since only about half the people have found it this week! If you get bored and feel like another try at some point, I'll give you a hint...it's somewhere between the two Cricut mats! And if not, I'll see you next week!!

Have fun!

Morti said...

Oh, I LOVE making ATCs - you'll have a blast! The craft sheet/paper pad on your desk where you've coloured those fronds looks fab, would make an ace background paper if done on plain white!

Thanks for stopping by...
