woyww - ATC's from across the seas

A new journaling and collage book is competing with the latest kindle e-book.  Most of the crafty stuff has been put away as I mailed off a few ATC's for the woyww swap.  Waiting for Doone to email her address and then the final swap will be postal.


But, look what has already arrived from Annie, Jo and Trish.  Gorgeous soft dumfling atc's and a beautiful "smile" atc.  Thanks to everyone who has agreed to swap with me and I hope mine arrive soon.  The biggest thanks goes to Julia who without fail posts woyww.....

  1. Looks like you had a great mail week. Of course, I think your reading must have been a big hit, too. Happy WOYWW from #4.

  3. Happy WOYWW to you,
    What fantastic ATC's you have there. It's such a special idea and executed so beautifully.
    Julia had such a brilliant idea and helped create not only some brilliant art but also some really close friendships.
    Thanks for popping over to my place earlier...I really appreciate it.

  4. Beautiful collection of atc's you have there and what an interesting desk. The book on journaling and collage - does it say "Vintage"? Mm ... latest Kindle - and a list of books down the side - you are an avid reader me thinks.
    Thanks for sharing, Hugs, Neet #6 xx

  5. That really is a beautiful collect of ATCs you have there. I think we should all do a 3 cheers for Julia, without whom none of this would have happened. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #24

  16. I keep checking the mail...I only sent mine on Saturday though so I guess it will take a week or so for mine to get to their destinations....I love the anticipation though.

  21. Lovely ATCs there. I am sure Annie and Jo have a special deal with the postman as theirs seem to have got to places pretty quick around the world!
    My Kindle is a little neglected lately as it interferes with crafting and by the time I get to bed I am too tired to read. Have a long bus journey soon so will make sure it is charged up!

  22. Lots to play with on your desk this week, thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW!

  23. Hi Sandra,
    I'm so late I nearly didn't bother, but then I got my first ATC (from Finland) this morning so I did a quick post. That book looks good! Hope to see it soon!

  26. You received some beautiful ATC's. Great crafty desk there. I'm an old fashioned book person myself, plus it's hard to get a bookmark into a kindle:)
    Have a great week.

  27. Hi Sandra - I am late visiting folk today but I was late posting too! Wednesday already I can believe it. Glad my ATC found you. Pat on the back to the Aussie Postman you have a fab collection of ATCs there. Your collage book looks like a good read. Hope you get time to put your feet up and enjoy. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 105

  28. It will be the fasted day of your life, try and pause, relax, breath and take it all in, cos if you are like me, you have anticipated it for ages and then when it happens it is over in a flash! Tim is such an awesome man, he will pose with you for a photo if you ask him! Mario too! Enjoy every moment and take something with you for him to sign so you can scrap it with the photo.

  29. Hi again, My week is topsy turvy. No work yesterday, so no internet access, therefore late WOYWW (this morning) but it was still Wednesday somewhere, so that's OK. Hope you can shake the cold over the long weekend. I'm looking forward to those workshops too, but trying not to stress about them. Will send you a message after the Friday one and we must make some arrangements for lunch before TH on Sunday. (We might be too excited to eat lunch?)
    Have a nice long weekend! (I think I might have tomorrow off too.)

  30. Wow Sandra, what gorgeous ATCs! I do wish I'd been well enough to take part in this swap - I really feel I missed out - but certainly not entirely, because I received the most gorgeous surprise in the post today - a stunning ATC from you!!! Thank you soooo much - I adore the colours and the bling! It is very, very pretty and will be treasured, I can assure you. As I am sure you know from reading my blog, I love gesso - using it with a stencil is something I am planning to do now I am cutting my own stencils for my mixed media work. Have you done it with perfect pearls? I adore trhe shimmer! I feel so honoured to have received an ATC when I didn't take part in the swap. I love the little card that it came in, too, with the pierced design - very subtle and pretty. Thank you, thank you!!!

    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, too, about my latest zentangle art. Glad you like my efforts! The new pencils are awesome to use. I feel really spoilt at the moment!

    Happy WOYWW,

And it was very thoughtful of you to highlight my love of music too - I'm very touched and appreciate the kind thoughts and wishes. I have sent something to you!! Yes indeedy...but it's not an ATC!! *grin* Aha, you'll just have to wait and see lolol!!
    With love, LLJ #70 xx

  39. Apologies for being so late visiting but as they say better late than never eh?
    Your desk looks like there's masses of creativity going on.
    All the ATC's look amazing too. It's such a wonderful exchange of talents ;D
    If you nip over to my place you might be interested in joining in with my first 'giveaway'.
    Have a great week! Neesie #7

  40. Talk about a great mail week. I just received your unbelievable package. I can't believe the cost to mail those goodies to me. Rest assured, I will be using everything you sent. Thank you beyond belief for the skeleton leaves. I've lusted after them since forever. And thank you for taking such an active part in my blog, not just on Wednesday. You are a super friend.

    Yes, I asked for your address, but I have not made anything art wise since April, except the one ATC I just HAD to make. So, something is coming, just not sure when I'll feel like making it (grin). And your ATCs were all over the top. I really loved the one with the stamp.
