woyww - white walls and atc

 Not a lot of craft happening on my desk this woyww.  But, I did get to move most of the furniture and craft stuff back into my room after it was painted.  Trying hard to get rid of rubbish but there are so many bits and pieces that I just can't throw away.  The bowing in the shelf at the back of the desk shows just how much rubbish I had!!
A close up of two wonderful ATC's  and cards that have already arrived from the swap.  Thank you so much Nikki C and Diana.  They are stunning ATC's and I am so pleased to have swapped with you.  

An update on ATC's that I have posted:
Lisa M
Nikki C
Maxine (in the post tomorrow I promise)
RosA (swap at lunch)

Have a creative woyww week.


  1. I'm loving the newly painted walls and what fab ATCs you've received already. Have a great week.

  2. Lovely white walls! They would be wasted on me, as I would probbaly ruin them with ink splatters on the first day! I keep putting my bits that I just can't throw away into boxes, but then I tend to forget about them and now have several boxes on the go! Enjoy your new and improved art corner! zsuzsa #37

  3. Looking good this week.

    Happy WOYWW


  4. I bet it's lovely having your room back, all fresh and re-sorted! I was surprised the ATC arrived so quickly - wish the postal service was a bit better my end! You mentioned the pebbles I used this week, they are by Prima Finnabair and they are called Art Stones - you can get large or small jars and they are quite absorbent - they remind me of cat litter!
    Thanks for the earlier visit, have a good week,

  5. Hi Sandra, your lovely ATC arrived this morning, so I'll be blogging it next week! I loved that washi tape you sealed the envelope with- that's the first time Washi tape has grabbed my attention, lol. Sorting out & tidying do require a certain amount of hard heartedness, don't they?Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #18 xx

  6. Must feel great to be all back. Love the received ATCs. Happy Wednesday! LisaDV #38

  7. A newly painted craft room looks good & a lovely tidy desk. Happy woyww Jill #17

  8. Your beautiful ATC arrived just now! I will put it on my blog next Wednesday. The envelope was so pretty with that extra wide tape and your ATC is beautifully made. So shimmering. I don't know what you have covered it with, but it's very nice. Thank you so much. I have already sent you an email to that effect.
    Have a good week,
    Happy WOYWW,

  9. lovely ATC's! White walls- a black canvas! Yes, I have a good cutter- the cameo,and Quietfire files make it easy too! Ask if you need help

  10. Your space is so soothing, I think I'd be very happy there too! Thank you for your gorgeous ATC, I managed to take Julia's to her the day before the op, with a few others, so she got to see it! I know you said I didn't have to return one, but I rather think I shall as you're one of my fav blogs!
    Hugs, LLJ xxxx

  11. Lovely collection of ATCs, yours is on it's way and many thanks for the one you sent me, love it. The newly painted walls look lovely but I fear they wouldn't stay like that here Lol! Have a great woyww, Angela # 25

  12. Nice to have your room painted. I can't throw things away either. I might NEED them.

  14. I am so looking forward to my atc arriving, hope mine arrives with you before too long. Also hope that you and RosA have had a wonderful lunch and swapped your atc's - a good excuse to be "ladies who lunch".
    BTW your room is looking good.
    Hugs, Neet 14 xx

  15. Hi thanks for the visit, how fun that you are going to do a swap at 'lunch'. The newly painted craft room looks nice, can't wait to see what is next. Cx #7

  16. Went into Sutton yesterday to get my son some smart clothes for his work experience week in July so didn't get around to replying to any WOYWW posts at all! I see you got an ATC From Diana too,love the flower she did. Happy belated WOYWW BJ#32

  17. Hello Sandra sorry I am running late again but I made it to your desk. I love the shelf at the back, I have been thinking about how to make one for mine and still look nice. Your room freshly painted looks great and I dread when I will paint mine. The ATC you received are just so pretty. Have a great day and thanks for visiting mine Hugs~Anne L#4

  18. A lovely neat space there Sandra - enjoy using it!! Great ATCs you have already received. It sounds like a lot of fun was had last week - sorry I missed it...
    Take care. God bless.

  19. Your ATCs are lovely - Ours are on their way. I gave Annie hers today from you - we had a lovely time looking at the beautiful little works of art sent to us from around the globe. Thanks lots. x Jo

  20. Well done on painting and reorganising, too Sandra.
    And WOW! What great atcs, but then the desky lot are very clever, aren’t they?

  21. Hi Sandra, you must be so glad to get back into your craft room and mess it all up again hehehe! I am busy turning some of my hoarded stuff into hopefully pretty things I can give away, don't know how I have ended up with so much - I have some shelves like that, every so often I have to turn them over to bow back the other way! :o) Annie C #26
