A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

WOYWW #156 - Happy 3rd Annie & ATC Swap

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!

Lots of excitement in the World of WOYWW today!  Julia, our fearless leader, is in Spain.  I wish her a very happy third anniversary of her popular What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday blog!  I joined in about six months ago and immediately felt a part of a warm and crafty group of gals!

In honor of the third anniversary, Julia came up with the idea that we all participate in an ATC (Artist Trading Card) swap.  How fun!  What?  It was no good pretending I had any idea what the heck that was if I wanted to participate.  You can't really fake a swap.  Julia, fortunely, gave us plenty of notice so those of us who had never made an ATC could look at Mrs. Google's images and hop around the various WOYWW artists' blogs for ideas and then just, well, make one of our own.  I can't wait to send mine out and get one in return!  That's another first for me ~ it's my first swap, too!

It's fairly early in California, but the list is already long.  Yee-ha!  It's not too late to join in the fun, however!  Click over and jump in!  BTW, you don't have to participate in the ATC swap ~ just link a peek at your work space today!

In the meantime, my desk is rather blah.


I've got old cards ready to send out as thank you cards for kindnesses received on my vacay in Iowa recently and you can see a stack of them ready to go.  (When I say "old cards," I don't mean like used cards or cards I found in Aunt Grenadine's attic.)  Also the "gradulation" card I made yesterday.  That's about it, folks.  Move along.  Let the police handle it.

I've a full day today with doctor appointments and friends coming over for a pre-lunch visit and then we are off to our quarterly Ladies Who Lunch meeting.  Only lady-like cocktails will be consumed.  I want to wax inelegantly about the word cocktails, but I must dash.  You'll have to conjure up your own paragraph in my stead.  Ta-Ta!

Oh, first, I see I have another follower to welcome!  Hi Jackie!  You definitely want to click over to her amazing Rockwell Designs blog!

Please enjoy ~ and, as always, thank you for stopping by to visit.   Special thanks to you if you take the time to join as a follower or leave a comment!

You are a girl after my own heart. What is an ATC anyway?! Before I started blogging (two months ago), I didn't even wear a watch. I don't have a cell phone, no facebook page...I must move into the last decade. What is Pinterest and how does one Flickr?

Lovely tidy desk. Welcome to the addictive world of ATCs. Happy WOYWW. Ali x #171

Ooo a lady who lunches, eh? Lovely! I have no idea what you were going to say about cocktails by the way, some of us are far too innocent to think such things ;-p
Hope you had a lovely time and I love the peek at your desk. Your playhouse is wonderful!

Redanne said...

Lady-like cocktails - never! Hope you had a lovely lunch with the ladies and still in a reasonable state to finish off those lovely cards on the desk. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #33

A very tidy desk today. I too, have pulled out old cards from the stash for thank yous. They are handy to have around. I like ladies who lunch, but I like guys who lunch too-very different conversations there. You are in CA and I'm in AZ, I'm afraid we're never going to be at the top of the list for WOYWW! Gosh knows I try though.

Helen said...

happy woyww, sorry it's Thursday already.. I love your desk! helen, 8

Bonnie said...

I like that you still have a small clean spot, just large enough to work on another card, if you're careful! Hope you had a great lunch with lots of laughs.

Oh California, I am thinking of comeing there next year early in the year with my daughter.

Nice clean desk, I think it needs messing up. LOL

Love that your workspace is in front of a window! I LOVE to use natural light! Sounds like you had a very busy day planned but fun! I recently joined WOYWW because of a friend who participates. I didn't have a clue what ATC's were so I asked her. I chose not to participate this time as I had just started. Maybe next year. Valerie #174
