woyww -mail

My desk has a lovely assortment of ATC's and cards from the swap.  Wipso and Twiglet's atc arrived on the day and Claire's soon after and I am impressed on their organisational skills.  Women like that should be running the country.  The other lovely card is from RosA who always remembers my birthday.  Thank you.
A pic of the best of the landscapes I did at the workshop.  As my teacher commented "our brains learn faster then our hands" and I do agree. By the end of the day my hands could no longer follow any instruction given by my brain.  Quite frustrating but I have to admit to enjoying the process rather then the end result.  
Now I am off to visit lots of desks ......which is always fun.


  1. Brain learns faster than hands? Well, I wish my brain was as smart as my hands! lol
    My finals are 3 days away and all I do is craft! (I study, but meh, let's make some cards! lol)

    Love the painting. You're so talented. :)
    Those are some lovely ATCs you've got.

    Happy WOYWW. xx
    It's my blogiversary and I've got candy to celebrate!


  2. So much gorgeousness around on desks this week, it is a joy to visit. Have a good week, Helen 5

  3. I really love your latest pic. You are so talented.
    Thanks so much for the gorgeous has just got in my way and I haven't managed to email all my friends who have sent mine to me [Sorry]. I love them all and the fact that they were sent by friends I haven't met [as yet].

  4. Hi there,
    Just popping in briefly, I'm supposed to be mowing the lawn!
    Still, this is a better way to spend the morning in my opinion.
    Your painting looks cool from here!
    Hope you have a great week.

  5. Lovely atc's from last weeks swap. Happy woyww Jill #82

  7. The landscape looks good. Will look forward to seeing it IRL.
    Yes, that Matisse gel is a nuisance the way the lid always sticks and if you don't try opening it regularly it threatens to glue shut permanently!

  8. That's a lovely lot of ATCs you got there. Belated Happy Birthday wishes to you too. Your painting is brilliant, wish I could paint like that! Hugs, Anne x #51

  9. Love your collection of pretty ATCs and I think that landscape is brilliant... so your hands did a pretty good job with what your brain was saying! LOL Happy WOYWW from Annette #8

  10. Your landscape is beautiful, Happy belated birthday wishes, hope it was a good one.
    Happy Wednesday

  14. You’ve certainly a lovely collection of ATC’s there Sandra and everyone is so different. It’s great seeing all the artistic talent out there. Hopefully mine will be with you very soon because it’s on its way.
    Your picture is amazing, I love the colours too.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Happy Crafting!

  15. Ahh, so THAT'S why I have these amazing ideas that never translate into reality quite how I imagined them to!!! My brain is too fast, lol....that's not what my husband would say. I think I'm more like those giant tortoises on the Gal√°pagos Islands, ambling along at their own slow pace.....
    I LOVED the ATC! My fav so far!!
    Hugs, LLJ 36 xxxx

  30. Hi Sandra, I'm not sure I wished you a happy birthday already so if I haven't belated wishes to you and I hope you had a lovely day. The ATCs and cards you've received are lovely, and, yes, with organisational skills like theirs, they should be running the world, or at least the country :) And I am so impressed with your landscape, it's beautiful, you are so talented - I wish I could paint like that. Hope you are enjoying the weekend. Elizabeth x #56
