WOYWW after xmas

Hoping you all had a wonderful christmas with family and friends.  Thank you for all the sweet comments about the kitty thief, she enjoyed her pressie even more on christmas day.  We added an extra mouse so that she got a surprise.

Now to WOYWW.  Working on some ATC's just for the sheer pleasure of playing with all my stuff.  Not trying to meet a swap deadline or working to a theme  ... just playing with alcohol inks, damask and butterfly stamps and of course bling.  
Enjoy your wednesday and I hope to catch up with other WOYWW.


  1. Crafting for pure pleasure is soo much fun! Looks like you had loads of fun playing and getting messy.

    Happy creative crafting in the New Year. Thanks for the peek and sharing, hugs Marjo #10

  2. Isn't it wonderful to create just for the fun of it? I've definitely rediscovered that this year. And having already seen the ATCs you created, I definitely think you should play like this more often.

    Thanks for sharing.
    cheers, rachel #15

  3. I love just playing with my stuff too

    Yep, you did spy a Swiss dots embossing folder on my desk!

    Happy new year - you'll reach 2011 well before us!


  4. Some lovely damask & flutterbies there !!

  5. I just loooovvveee Damask anything. Never made a ATC before, do you swap them or what happens? Looks interesting. I am ready to jump into something new for 2011. Your cat is cute, we have three, they all have their own personalities. One of them is a burmese cross and is very funny and talkative. We just love her.She anounces herself every morning making sure everyone knows she is there and commands her cuddles and breakfast.
    Have a very happy New Year. Blessings Hilde

  6. You're obviously having lots of fun here!! Love those stamps.

    Happy new year to you.

  7. Its nice when you find time to just make stuff coz you want to and have lots of fun in the process, enjoy..Happy WOYWW and have a great new year.

  8. Looks like you were having fun. I found the best thing to get alcohol inks off your fingers...craft scrubbie. I heard about it from Jennifer McGuire. Happy New Year. #64

  9. I love trying new things and playing with new stuff. Looks like you are having fun.
    Happy New Year!!

  10. The damask is beautiful - I peeked ahead :) It's great being able to craft for pleasure with no deadlines, etc., isn't it? Your cat is just proving that she's too clever by half. I wish you and yours a healthy and happy New Year. Elizabeth #57

  11. This is the exact reason I don't join a lot of challenges. I want to make art at MY pace and what I like, not what the challenge host wants. It's more fun that way.

    I hope you had a great Christmas. I saw the Kitty thief post. They sure know which ones are theirs, don't they?

    Sorry I missed last week. Little did I know when I left suddenly last Wednesday that I would not have access to the internet. I didn't even get to wish you a Merry Christmas, and now it's time to wish you a fun and art filled 2011. And kiss the Kitty, too, please (#2).

  12. That's a great idea to give yourself time and space to do exactly what inspires you. The damask looks lovely, and I have to admit to looking back to chuckle at your cat burglar - what a cheeky minx!

    Have a fine and crafty New Year

  13. Crafting for fun! Now that is the way it should be always. Looks like some serious inspiration going on there! Have a happy and prosperous New Year. Hauoli makahiki hou from AmberInk (#1).

  14. Glad you're enjoying your crafting, had a quick look at your post about your kitty thief - very funny. Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you in the future on WOYWW :-)

  15. i knew i was missing a trick.....playing with stash just for the fun of it. Hmm, must try that again now all the crimbo cards are done.

    love the damask stamp in your last post too

    happy new year

  16. It's so fun to just sit and play and not have to worry about a deadline or anything like that isn't it.. Your cards look like they are going to be very pretty with the bling and butterflies. Sorry I didn't make it by last week..I hope you and your family had a great Holiday and a Happy New Year ahead!

  17. Your butterflies are beautiful!!

    Happy WOYWW and Happy New Year!

  18. So nice to play without the deadlines, but I often find it's the deadlines that motivate me!! Love the addition of the butterflies to the damask stamp. Have a great New Year,

  19. I can only wish my desk top was as tidy as yours, it could be in a magazine! (I can only wish!)
    Love those images. Have a great and very Happy New Year!

    ((Happy WOYWW)
