woyww - colour charts

Almost forgot to post for woyww and I can only say I got distracted by colour charts.  My new metal watercolour box arrived and I was playing with different pans of colour trying to work out which ones I like and how they fit into the box?  Of course I had to try out the free colour charts that came in the package and that lead to looking at pinterest and you tube to see what colours are popular and that became another distraction.  But I did learn that I manage better with a limited selection of colours.  If I have access to 50 colours I will use all 50.  The whole topic put kitty to sleep, so I better hurry up and post.

Have a lovely woyww and hope to visit lots of desks over the coming weekend.

woyww - mail

 I have just been opening mail rather than crafting this week and that is always fun.  The atc from Lottie arrived and it is beautiful.  Love how she has got the two tones of shimmer on the daisy.

Followed by a gorgeous folding box card from Annette and she has a tutorial on her blog.
My next post came from RosA and she has used shiva paintsticks on her ATC to get the beautiful shimmer.
Finally the lovely Carole has sent me an envelope of goodies along with her rocking atc.
Now you can see why very little crafting has happened on my desk.  Too many goodies to admire and then I even forgot to link up on woyww.  Hopefully Julia will let me creep in at the end.

woyww - tidy up

A clean desk and new storage containers all because of a spilled cup of tea.  Much happier now that I can see what I have in the containers at the back of my desk. Originally I used recycled cardboard boxes but the cup of tea sent them all into the recycle bin for good. No project today as the mail arrived.
3 lovely ATC's a "quilted hug" from Annie, a delish cake from Twiglet and 5 Candles from LLJ.  Thank you ladies they are very special.  They were all made by fabric loving woyww's who can do just about anything with needle and thread.

Final pic is of the lovely orchid that flowers for me without fail every year.
Hope to slowly visit lots of desks this week if all goes well with the link.
