WOYWW 157 - Is it Wednesday Already?!

What with a busy week and with the Jubilee extended holiday weekend thrown in I really cannot believe it is that time again already.  In fact if with wasn't for BJ emailing me this morning I would have missed it!  So thank you to her for the friendly nudge and for swapping with me.

So here is my desk this week - the calm before the storm I think.....

I have been having a lovely time with the ATC swap and am excitedly watching the post.  As you can see on my desk I already have a pretty ATC and a yummy dumfling (My computer insists it is a dumpling!).  Big thank you to Ann and Jo.  As you can see on my desk I have 4 more envelopes to send out that I didn't manage to get off before the Jubilee weekend so they will be posted today.  Thank you to everyone who is swapping with me and thank you to Julia for hosting the anniversary fun.

Let me see what else can you see on my desk this afternoon? - Stampin up stuff still not played with.  Remnants from the ATCs I made last week and some purple wrap from a bunch of flowers that I am going to save and I have already used some on my Royal themed tag for the Tag Tuesday challenge (next to the envelopes).  The gingham tag is a work in progress for a picnic themed tag.  Oh and in amongst it all is an empty ink cartridge that is waiting for me to find a recycling envelope for it!

I know this week is going to whizz by too as I have classes next week and I notice Tim's June tag is up and I know I won't be able to resist making my version and I really want to finish painting next door (one and a half walls to go).  But first things first.... cup of coffee and a peek at what everyone is up to in WOYWW Land.  If you have never visited WOYWW Land before then follow this link to find out more.

  2. Hi Helen - I know what you mean about not knowing what day it is - I am so confused with he Jubilee weekend, yesterday felt like a Sunday to me. Today the shops are all open and the postie has been so I think I know it is Wednesday now and guess what he brought me? A wonderful ATC from you and a bag of goodies - thank you so much, that was so very kind of you.
    Love the dumfing ones you got - aren't they wonderful.
    Thanks for sharing and my goodies - Hugs, Neet #6 xx

  3. Hi Helen, I went out yesterday to do some shopping, not realising it was another Bank Holiday (retired you see) and all the shops were open so I was more than confused! Nice short week the ATCs you got, they are all beautiful. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #24

  4. Am really enjoying seeing the ATC's everyone has received :) Gutted I couldn't play last week but seeing them on everyone's blogs is really making up for it.

    Know what you mean about being lost with the days. Need the kids back at school so I know where I am :D

  6. Hi Helen!

    Have a happy WOYWW!

  7. Oh, just look at the lovelies on your desk! (And yes...I am a bit messy...and by a bit...I mean a lot! LOL! But only in my craft desk at work is SUPER neat all of the time! Kind of odd, really.)

  11. Lovely peek at your neat desk and fantastic ATCs! Your description of your to-do list makes me exhausted; good luck with getting to everything you want to do! And thanks for coming by my place for a visit! (Darnell 56)

  12. I really enjoyed the ATC swap, got one today, and it is stunning! Can't wait for yours and hope you like mine!

  13. lovely bits and pieces on your desk and the atc's look gorgeous! I guess you're a fan of the Christmas holiday, because you wrote about it in your comment on my blog and what do i spy on your desk? a Santa Claus pencil! lol

  14. I am getting a theory now that Jo has something going with the postie as most of us who swapped with Jo have had the dumflings already yet others have not got through! My BlackBerry tries to change dumfling to Dumfries!! LOL!
    Don't forget to take some time out for yourself!

  15. Way hay you made it at #105 not bad considering you didn't realise it was Wednesday. Loving the darker ATC is it all stitched? Cool BJ#32
