T for Tuesday anniversary!

Today is T for Tuesday's first anniversary!
Happy Anniversary Bleubeard and Elizabeth!

I always visit the T party but sadly haven't posted much. But today I'm linking up for T for Tuesday sharing my favorite pic from one of my first T Tuesday posts.

This is my 'T', she's a goofy blue Russian kitty as evident by this pic. And her name really is 'T' as she was named after 'iced tea' which I drink by the gallons during summer.

Stop by and say Hi to Bleubeard and Elizabeth today and wish them happy Anniversary!

Oh my goodness, a friend wished me a good hump day and ....aacckk...I need to get a WOYWW post up....must take a desk pic...must not forget the atcs that arrived....must.....take a breath.

So here's my studio, a total disaster area...both desks!

Craft desk - dumping ground for remnants of Utee play. Some wire working tools, my ATC book covers getting buried. A mess!

Desk 2- All of the ATCs I've received laid out so I don't lose or leave anyone out of the ATC album. Another mess!

And these are the last two ATCs from the WOYWW 5 swap. On the left from Kay (sorry I missed posting it last week) and on the right from Kelly. Fab ATCs ladies!

So that's it from me today. Basically doing a general pick up so I can get back to the ATC album. I'm linking up with the birthday girl, Julia for our weekly desk hop.

Have a crafty day!

Hull-lo Deskers! We've come back around to another Wednesday gathering at Julia's. (Details can be found on her blog.)

Now the reason you're here....my desk picture. Well, this is what awaits me this morning. Yesterday I glued down Tim's tissue paper with lots of nice wrinkles. When that was dry I used perfect pearls mists and started spraying. I like these mists so much better than the Dylusions sprays. Today I'll do a little sanding and some distress inking. These will be the covers for my WOYWW 5 ATC album.

Now I'm off to visit as many desks as possible this morning. Last week I was visiting but was unable to leave comments. :/ Hopefully this week blogger is more cooperative.

Have a wonderful day!

Friday Smiles #75

Welcome! Do come in to the lounge so we can have a chat. Um, erm, oh my....I'd offer you a seat but seems they are both occupied at the moment. I am so sorry, do come again tho. ��

Linking up today with Annie at A Stitch in Time for Friday Smiles. No place for the lady of the house or her guests to sit. Hope the Girls lounging gave you a smile.

Afternoon Deskers!

Linking up with Julia at the Stamping Ground for our usual Wednesday post of our work desks. Stop by her blog for the links to go desk hopping round the world.

My desk today is the dining table where I'm cutting plastic sheeting. I'm making an album for all the ATCs received from the WOYWW 5 swap. Also in this pic an ATC, card and feathers from Kay!

And to catch you up here's pics of the ATCs I've received in the last two weeks.

Above from Carole then...

(going across top to bottom)
from Chris P - tp tube envelope with two fab ATCs,
Darnell's adorable purse with glassine envie and twine next her from Neet with an amazing paper envie and ATC. ( oops that's the ATC back still fab).
Lacy loveliness from Donna and fab envelope with two ATCs and a pile of RAK from Nikki.

Here's the front of Neet's ATC. Love it and swoon over the envelope. :)

And above is a quick pic of the cool RAK from Nikki's drawing.!

Thank you all for swapping. Love love everything I've received...ATCs and RAK !!

Well this has been way too long but I wanted to acknowledge everyone and say Thank You! Now off with you to enjoy snooping out more desks.

Welcome home Ms Julia! She is our lead Desker for this desk blog hop found on the Stamping Ground blog, who was on holiday with a brief stop over in the hospital. :0! We're glad you're back and doing better!

Now my desk ...well the pic was taken early Monday morning and hasn't changed much since. I'm working on embellies for an altered box.

Leave your WOYWW number and I'll do my best to visit you this week.

Hugs from Nan and the Girls

Hello Deskers!

Are you as amazed as I am at all the beautiful ATCs making their way round the globe?! It's been a fab fifth anniversary party for sure and our dear Julia has gone off on holiday for a little relaxing. Well deserved too, Julia!

Not much going on in my studio so my pics today are of the fantastic ATCs I've received the last couple of days. Wow! Deskers you've out done yourselves this year! Since we don't all use our IRL names on our blogs I'll just list the name that's on the ATC, as some did not put their blog name on the ATC. So here's my haul so far:

Chris D, LLJ, Jill B and Caro

Next we have Claire G, Margaret and Sharon.

And last but not least a surprise envelope for the Girls! They love it and so do I....many thanks to Bleubeard and Elizabeth!

The Girls inspecting and playing with 'their' envelope. :)

Looks like mr. Linky went on holiday with Julia of the Stamping Ground too.

Thank you Deskers for another great virtual party. For my new visitors click on the links to go to our holidaying hostess's, Julia's blog for the deets and usually the links. Today we'll be using the comment links to visit our fellow Deskers.

Have a great week y'all!
