Happy WOYWW!  Julia's blog is where you play! 

Here's my desk this week.  I'm working on a card in the style of art nouveau for a swap I might sign up for (if I can finish the cards).   It's been a lot of fun so far. I'm hoping to finish it today since I'm off today!  Hoorah for having a day off in the middle of the week!   Also, I'd like to complete cards for a whole bunch of swaps: flower and butterflies, sunflowers and black birds, me and my crystal ball, wild watermelon, whimsy dogs.... We'll see how far I get tomorrow!  If you visited last week, you can see the inky backgrounds have been gessoed and stamped..and are ready for a subject...not sure what yet.  In the top middlish portion of my desk there is a bottle of wine.  I was thinking about painting it for a still life swap, but I'll probably drink it before I get around to it.  Oh well :)

Thanks for stoping by!  All these ATC swaps are over at ATCsforALL.com.  I'm Ethereal_sheep over there if you want to start doing ATCs...I'd be happy to help you get addicted...er...start trading ATCs!

Mid day update on my mini-ATC-athon:

Here's what I have done by 3:00pm.  The watermelon swap is finished, 2 to go on the Art Nouvaeu...the 4 cards for all the other swaps too.

Peace and love, y'all!

By the sound of it I don't think you'll have much time for sleeping with all those swaps planned. ;D
Have fun and good luck completing them all.

Hi Katie thanks for popping by. I have only participated in one ATC swap but it was fun. Your backgrounds look fab. I always love the look of the sequin waste dot mask or it may be the bubble wrap stamp - the dotty texture is what I am talking about - there is something I find pleasing in the pattern ;-) Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 5

That sounds like a lot of work prepping for all those swaps! I love all those atc's on your desk though, great work. ALl those stamps on my desk are House Mouse, I stamped them all for an image swap with another woywwer and didn't get time to put them all away before I left on my holiday!

Hi Katie,

Your ATCs look great! I love watermelon and for some reason I don't eat much of it when it's in season.

Thanks for visiting me already. I'm slowly getting around this week.

Hugs, Kay #31

Swaps I have given up on I just seemed to be chasing swaps and creating for swaps, You have some really beautiful atc's there and that desk looks like it is in full creative mode. I love those backgrounds too.
