What's on My Workdesk Wednesday 257? Cards and ATCs

South African Elections


Hello fellow Desker from Julia's place over at Stamping Ground.  Welcome to my desk in a sunny (though not too warm) Cape Town, South Africa.

Today is voting day and Google has made us our own logo!  Cool stuff!

I am however off to work even though it is a public holiday, but we have had so many recently (two last week) and because I work for myself, if I don't work, I don't earn, so class is going ahead today.  We will vote after class.
This is my desk...covered in random stuff from making cards from left over stash from all the conventions I have attended over the years.  Trying to get it used up. Oh and as usual my overflowing ribbon drawer...

Then there are the 4 ATCs for the April swap at my store.  The blue one with the crown is my make as I always make an extra one for myself to keep and the other 3 are the swaps I got!  I love doing these swaps.

I will be finishing off the ATCs for the WOYWW swap tonight and posting them to Ali H tomorrow or Friday so she can swap some at the crop for me.  How exciting!  Those of you who have agreed to swap with me, I will be posting yours tomorrow or Friday too so you can have them in time for the WOYWW party.  Thanks to Nikki C whose ATC has already arrived.  Talk about orgainised!

Have a great week.

Bella

Some fab things on your desk! I love the teal/turquoise swirly paper...my favourite colours :-)
And I thought you had a rather dazzling new pair of specs until I realised it was the handles of your scissors. Blimey, think I need my eyes testing!!
Great idea, sending your ATCs to Ali, I'm looking forward to the Crop, nearly there now!
Hugs, LLJ 2 xx

My ATCs are also already gone. I like that we got organized, because waiting til the last minute doesn't work for me. Lovely art you got, too.

I agree that your cutter may be old. So is mine. But I'm not sure it ever cut straight in the first place (grin). Thanks for the earlier visit. I was by last night early, but your post wasn't up yet. Happy WOYWW from # 5.

Thanks for visiting me earlier Bella. I can't believe your ATC's are on their way already...the ones on your desk are lovely. Cx #72

Love those sweet cards on your beautiful, busy desk! Thanks so much for visiting me--you were cracking me up. I never even thought about not being able to knit and watch my shows! I guess I do that all the time because I could never just sit still and watch a TV show and do nothing else! Really though, you can do it with practice, no problem! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #71

I love using up scraps - but can't use them nearly as fast as I seem to produce them LOL! Your cards are fab!

Happy WOYWW! Getting back to it now my connection has come back :)

It's good to use up stash.I love to use stashed embellishments it make the project go faster...sometimes.
I thought I was #59 so I commented on all the nines but when I came back to comment some more I noticed I'm #58...so now I'll visit the 8's Be well Carole #58?

I always mean to use up scrap stuff but somehow it never seems to happen. I need to have a day just making stuff from my scrap box. Happy crafting, Angela x 45

Love that you got the Google doodle for the voting... really hope the vote changes things this time round as they can't continue along the lines they are going. Good on you being ahead of the game and getting your ATC's sorted early, I still have to finish the backs of mine. Annette #9

Coo Bella, what a super desk, and how efficient to be posting ATCs already. I am still making and don't even have all the addresses yet.

I love the cards and ATC's! I'm hoping to get mine finished this weekend, and in the mail next week. My DH, also my postman...(really...)isn't convinced of my world-wide mail safe-ness...might need to make some adjustments...oh bother...
