WOYWW, a RAK and an ATC Trade


It's still Tuesday, but believe me when I tell you, my workspace is not going to look any different in the morning!  LOL

Tomorrow is What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) over at Stamping Ground's blog.  I would be embarrassed to show the following space to someone that was visiting if they weren't an artist/crafter!  Yikes.  But since I'm amongst friends, here I go.  I'll keep the photos small but you can click on them if you REALLY want to see what a mess my space is today! . . .
Does it help if I tell you I'm preparing for another 
workshop next weekend?
Angie Beck from Angie in Yanchep (Western Australia) blog sent me these  digital papers (below) that she created and shared with me.  She  called them "scraps", but ooooooh I call them GORGEOUS and I can hardly wait to incorporate these papers in my work!  I hope to make her proud :)  
And check out all of the postage stamps on the envelope she mailed the papers to me in.  Oh yeah, I'll be using those as WELL!  Thank you so much Angie x's and o's from the other side of the world . . .
This was on the table, but I have since removed them so they didn't get lost!  I did a swap with Deborah over at Vintage Soul and received these fabric artist trading cards (atc's) from her.  Aren't these just GORGEOUS?!  
And look at the fabric card holder she made for them to fit in.  Wow, you really outdid yourself Deborah.  Thank you from one coast to the other *smiles* (Deborah is from Florida) . . .
That's it for a couple of days my blogging buddies.  Have a great rest of the week and I'll see you again soon!

What a busy desk this week. Sorry you missed last week. I am curious about the keys. Did you rust them yourself? I've tried rusting some of the newer keys and the protective coating seems to get in the way (grin).

I would call those paper "scraps" gorgeous, too. They are stunning, in fact. Happy WOYWW.

Nancy Lynn said...

I see that you are going to be doing one of my favorite projects of yours........the little playing card necklaces. Way too much fun. Where do you get the little playing cards?
Also, how did you rust the keys......inquiring minds need to know.
Love your blog and your artwork.

Ooh Sherry your workshop preparations look fascinating! If that's what makes for an untidy desk,bring it on and erm, what's my excuse! Love the look of those exotic stamps too, I wonder how you'll use those.

paperqueen said...

Looks a lot like my table, except you have cooler stuff on yours. whatever that workshop is, it's going to have some amazing elements. I do love those fabric ATCs. Now that I can sew a semi straight line I think I'll put that on my to-try list.
Cheers!
