WOYWW, ATCs and colorful spring!

Good morning my dear bloggy friends!

Are you having a lovely bright and sunny morning like we are??? I hope you are...
I have been doing my spring cleaning - so far I have managed to do the big terrace, lounge and kitchen - the bedroom is not a problem but the craftroom - that is a BIG problem! Huh!! But I have a plan and I will tackle it! 
I will soon reveal my lovely new order! :-))
At the moment there is no order - a big mess I should say - I have been making ATCs for the WOYWW swap - I will show some of them as I am giving away loads - I guess it will still be a surprise to the person who recieves the ATC as what she/he sees on my desk might not be what she /he gets.
So the desk of today....I was too early taking the picture to be able to catch a ray of sun on it.....

What you can see are a few ATCs in the front,  my special sequins container 
( I store sequins that are unusual shapes - like leaves, flowers, shells - by the way if any of you know of an online store in England that sells this sort of stuff please let me know), a big bunch of precut ATCs - they are all different sizes - I guess there is a confusion because some places use inches for the size of them and some use milimeters...the fact and the matter is that they should be 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inches or 64mm x 89mm but people who sell them obviosly don't know that! Hmm what else can you see - two pairs of scissors, TH DI Vintage photo and a Stampin up stamping pad in olive, oh yes and my ATC stamps, and a little plastic box where I keep my Cut n Dry foams for my distress inks,  also a jar of flowers! If you see anything else - good for you! Ha, ha...
I still haven't started on the Gelli plate! The reason is I want to have time to play and I am putting together a selection of homemade "tools" to use on the Gelli plates! Julia Fei-Fan Balzer gives some excellant advise!
Of course I can't walk away without a few colorful spring photos! Enjoy!
A lovely pink....

two different purples....

and yellow and red....

That's it for today....have a good snoop and expect me to come and have a snoop at your desk too!
It is all the idea of a certain nosey  lady at Stamping Ground - go over there and find out!
Lots of hugs to all of you,

  21. Humm sequins in shapes. I have to admit I did not read all the comments, but I know I have seen them in party type stores, or even HobbyCraft in the wedding aisle. I may even have some (although they might only be boring stars :)

    LMK what you are looking for before the crop and I'll keep my eyes open!

    Happy WOYWW!

  23. Lovely flowers. Thank you. We are so far away from them where I live. I really like your ATC's thought. They look gorgeous. I've been playing with ATC's lately too...what a fun little exercise. Have a good week.

  24. Oh my gosh! Love the ATCs! I so need to start in mine so I can participate as much as possible. Love the pansy, violas and the open tulips are fab! Happy WOYWW! Nan G #98

  25. I am having nightmares over those ATC's! Last time I promised myself I would make a whole lot more if we ever do this again and I have all these ideas in my head... nothing done yet, better get a move on, school is starting in a week.
    Your desk has so many lovely things to play with, I wish I could come over for a play date.
    Happy belated WOYWW!
