Lovely post May. Looks like you are busy on your desk and the ATCs you've received are gorgeous ... and all so different. Hope you have a lovely WOYWW. Elizabeth x too early to have a number :)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Congratulations on becoming a design team member. Just had to read that one, too! That's what makes it so much fun to visit early on WOYWW day.

At first, I didn't get the birdhouse. Had to look several times. Your ATCs are great. Looks like you really scored!!

BTW, you said something about my liquified ATC being inky. I had to laugh, since it all fabric. But don't tell Minxy (grin).

sandee said...

Wow, the girls did such wonderful jobs on their ATC's, going back for a closer look of them! Thanks for sharing!! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the birdhouse! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Neesie said...

I love the idea of the birdhouse and will be watching closely May. I know you'll have a perfect des res for you're local birds and it'll cause quite a stir in the neighbourhood ;D

How wonderful to receive such wonderful ATC's. It makes checking the post box exicting I suppose...certainly better than those irritating bills!
Have fun and enjoy WOYWW xoxo

BJ said...

Morning May, the birdhouse looks cool. DS made one in school and I have it on my garden fence, I love it so much. Have a look - http://ccraftcorner.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/finding-fun-houses.html
Thanks for naming me as one of your ATC senders, I totally forgot to name names on my post - OOPS - as I was trying to get it done before bed last night. Just rectified that. BJ#32

OOh cant wait to see your birdhouse finished it looks fabulous huggies June xxxx

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I'm loving visiting everyone's desks this week to see the fabulous ATCs. They really are sparking my interest in ATCs and giving me ideas. They also make me feel better that mine aren't artsy, so many of them aren't and that's okay! I guess we'll stick close and see how your painted objects turn out.

toni said...

Those projects look very interesting, I just bought a bird house from the 'book man' at work' Thanks for mentioning me in your ATC post you are so thoughtful May, Have a happy WOYWW xx

505whimsygirl said...

Hello May,

Is the one item a bird house? I bought a BUNCH of bird houses to paint and haven't done not one yet. Now I'm debating about mod podging them.... so many ideas in my little pea brain!

The ATCs you received are great! That photo of the Queen as a little girl is adorable. When she smiles her entire face smiles.

Happy WOYWW
Hugs,
Kay #114

Jingle said...

It looks like you have some fun projects in the works!

Laura said...

Hello, May -- thanks for visiting over at my blog. Had to laugh at your comment about potentially needing oxygen if your crafty space was ever packed up. I tried to set things up so I knew where to find what I needed (which is why I did it all myself, for the most part.) Wishing you a happy WOYWW and inspiration for the next steps for your painted items. ~ Laura #101

Amazing ATC's, love the Queen one!

Great desk and your project looks very interesting.

Happy WOYWW x

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Pretty ATCs - especially the young Queen - like that very much. You look as if you've been having fun creating - I'm missing my mojo at the moment, which is a bot scary as I've got two fairs coming up soon....!
Hugs, LLJ #70 xx

Helen said...

Hi May thanks for popping by. Your desk reminds me I have a wooden box to decorate - I am wondering if I could make ATC storage from it. I have seen some fab ATCs today thanks for sharing your lovelies. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 105

Daniella said...

Whatever you decide to do with your painted things I'm sure it will be fabulous!! And what lovely ATC's you've received!! Lucky you!!

Shoshi said...

Interesting looking desk, May, with your projects that seem to have loads of potential! Also, I love the ATCs you've received - how beautiful they all are, and I adore the one about the queen! I do wish I'd been able to take part in this swap...

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, and glad you like my art work. I've now uploaded a post about the zentangles with colour so you can see them in better detail. Health-wise, I'm going through a bit of a dip at the moment and hoping it will improve soon as there's so much I want to do! It did mean that I couldn't join in any of the village activities over the Jubilee, but I got to see so much on TV, and got really emotional about it, seeing our beloved Queen being so appreciated by all her people! God bless her.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #89

Queen Lightwell said...

Can't wait to see how your painted object projects turn out! :) And you have received some awesome ATCs...don't you love how each one is so unique, even though they are all the same size, roughly? Each just perfectly reflecting how we may work with similar mediums but we are all very different people. I just love it. :)
Thanks for stopping by my space and I hope you have a wonderful week too! Also, you are such a sweetie for thinking my teacup rosette is brilliant...I love it when people talk like that, its so encouraging! Thanks, again... :)

great desk and WIP! I start stuff cause I like a color or a style and eventually decide what to do with it too! Thanks for sharing. Sorry I am so late getting around again this week but with the growing numbers and 'life' it just takes longer to get it done. Have a great week. Vickie #51
