WIP: what's on my desk?

Hey friends, ome exciting things have been going on recently (something I can't share yet, but will soon :) and my desk has been in full work in progress mess mode these past couple of weeks. Thought it might be fun to show you what I have been working on.
Om my desk right now. Am creating some "clean up" ATC's for the swap @liltrini is hosting at @swapbotnews. My desk doesn't really look 'cleaner' after using the leftovers though 😂 . . . #swap #ATC #artistsofinstagram #artisttradingcard #collage #whats
The picture above is showing a fun swap/challenge Trinette is hosting on Instagram and Swap-Bot.  It's called the "clean up ATC swaps" where you create ATC's (around 6 monthly) using only scraps and you focus on design. I REALLY enoyed this swap but it seems like the "clean up" didn't help much as I kept creating more and more scraps, haha! The end result I'll show you sometime later, but above you have a sneek peak at one of them.

Finished up some art postcards/tiles yesterday and getting ready to make some more today! Also my winnings from @stamplorations may challenge came in and am excited to use those stencils. It's #stencilsunday after all 😄 . . . #whatsonmydesk #sundaya
And this past weekend I finished up some of my scrap collage cards which was so fun to do! I used some supplies I received in my ArtSnack subscription boxes and messed around with some new stencils and other mixed media products. Also in the back the stencils you can see are the winnings I received from the Mixed Media challenge at STAMPlorations in April. I am also super excited to be the winner of last Month at the Mixed media challenge WOO HOO :)  Also I have an order coming in soon ofmore STAMPlorations items and my very long awaited Jane Davenport items... Can't wait to play with all those products when they get here :) 

So, what's on your desk/what are you working on right now? I've discovered this fun blog on where people where their desk spaces on Wednesday (WOYWW) and you can join the fun as well :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

  2. Hiya, so glad you found us! It's a brilliant place where friends meet weekly - sharing and crafting, it's just great. Hope you have fun joining in. You made me laugh using up scraps only to create more, yep, that happens with fabric as well. You are not alone!!

  4. Welcome to WOYWW! It's interesting to see desks from all over. The downside for me is that I spot things that I'd like to have!! Ordered one stamp set while taking a visit break today.
    Nice ATCs that you've shared!
    Happy WOYWW
