WOYWW........97...Creative Mess

Good Morning Woywwers yes it's Wednesday already school hols in full swing But so is the lovely hot weather.We have had lovely sunny hot days since last Tuesday so we have been lucky got all my seeds i needed to put in the veggie patch done and dusted.So i can now concentrate on some essential over due crafting including DT work.Now if your wondering what this WOYWW is all about well .It's a whole bunch crafters around the world snooping at each others craft desk.Thanks to Julia the boss it is now a ritual of Wednesdays .So if you wanna find out more and join in then pop over to her blog "The Stamping Ground" First of all the desk above shows a frame which i have altered as was plain cork .I have made it look as though the piccy is 3d sort of in box frame .The piccy you ask is the beautiful ATC i won a couple of weeks ago from the lovely talented Hels . The Frame is not finished yet but the ATC was absolutely stunning and thought i couldnt just put in my ATC folder and forget so thats whats happening with that one. Also i have on my desk some die cuts yes been playing with MR V(vagabond)and the dies that i won from the craft barn,as well as others i already have of course. At the back you will see the lovely bottles 3 infact of the lovely new Distress Stains.I have to admit i have the whole set and they are just to die for with their wee little sponge top.So you can control the flow.I have used them on the piece of work you can sort see on my desk .Which when completed later today will be my creation for the "Sunday Stampers Challenge" .This week is something Blue. In the above piccy is a basket(again 20p find in charity shop) that is full of creations im working on." altered Books which open up.Then afraid to say the altered matchbox which hasnt got any further than last week .Except gone from rt hand side of desk to the left in a basket .Also a green frame which i picked up at charity shop for 20p which im alterning sanded down and painted thats about it thats the green you can see popping through. Here you can see the tag that needs finsihing today drying from last night and also i covered a beer mat/coaster in the distress stains too which will end up being something.Also see the small rosette die cut awaitng to be shaped for the tag.The stamp at the back is creativity by Tim Holtz. Now theres a story well i had already made my WOYWW anniversary gift to pass on and on Monday decieded id do something else .So now i have 2 completed creations and i love the second one best so think some lucky person will receive that one the other i shall keep as a reminder.Also if you want to know more about making a special creation and passing it on again go to Julia's blog and read all about it.So that stamp was left on my desk from that project. Hoping to get round you all this week think i managed most last week bar a few. Well have fab week enjoy the weather whilst it lasts never know this may be our UK Summer..lol!!! Love n hugs

Hi Jude,

You have a ton of things going on at your desk, and yet you've also found time to work in your garden, which is always fun. Sounds like you are having unbelievable weather there.

What a great desk today, and I love how you've displayed Hels' atc! Looking forward to seeing your finished "blue" entry!!

Morti said...

Great projects on the go, Jude!

Julia Dunnit said...

I dunno how you do it Jude..if I had that many on the go at once, I;d be putting the wrong stuff on the wrong thing!! Am very keen on the Distress stains idea...I think you may just have sold them to me! Sure Hels will be rally chuffed to see what you've done with her ATC.

I'm with Julia - I tend not to have too much on my desk or I will end up using the critical bit of paper for one project on another one and the get caught short. Birdcages, birdcages, everywhere I look. Really MUST get one of those dies, they work so well....
