Hello my friends. I trust this finds you well, and raring to go after the party last week. Firstly – thank you SO much to the folk who swapped ATCs with me. The ones I have received are simply lovely – so much creativity has gone into the making of them – and the thoughtfulness in putting together the little envelopes and gifts. Zsuzsa passed forward to me – a gorgeous package of gifts. THANK YOU! So, a little collage of all I have been blessed to receive thus far. In no particular order:

They are lovely. Thank you.

And what chaos is on my desk this morning?? It is simply groaning under the weight of everything as I have been having a massive card-making-fest!

What have we here? On the cutting mat are a couple of unfinished symphonies… the larger of the two is supposed to be for my friend here in Llandudno – but it isn’t working.. so not sure yet where to go from here. On the glass mat are die-cuts, scissors, blade, ink, babywipe, and DST. Further back is my scrap paper pile for leaning on when I stamp an image – the paper you always comment on and tell me to use… and beyond that is the card-fest finished pile – around 25 cards ready for the hotel and local charity shop. Ready apart from bagging them. Beyond that – my diary with mobile phone and a pile of little pieces of paper – the result of a lot of time spent on said phone trying to arrange for Velux window people to come  and tell me what is possible above my desk space. Then I have absolutely no idea what a cardigan is doing slung over the back of my rapidly dying computer chair – the temperatures are well up in the 20s here – so I certainly don’t need to be wearing it! Apart from all that, there’s the usual clutter of inks, DST, perfect pearls, glitter glues and some recently acquired washi tapes up on the shelf, and the glue, scissors etc down on the surface. Note to self – Must tidy up as I have visitors this weekend and then am spending time with family. My eldest grandie has her AS level art exhibition – and the presence of Nain (a Welsh grandma) is cordially invited! So I’ll be MIA next Wednesday!

So that’s me this week folks – I’ll be around to visit throughout the next couple of days – I have to be in and out a bit today – but I’ll get there.

Take care. God bless.

    Great collection of ATCs, Margaret. It looks as if you are already busy on lots of other things too! Thank you for your visit, and yes, thank you, we had a lovely day out yesterday, and the day before at my sister’s, and after that lot I am exhausted today! Happy belated WOYWW, Shoshi #3

    Fabulous 9th Anniversary ATC’s, so much clever creativity packed onto a small area. I love a busy desk as there will always be happy outcomes at the end of it all. Enjoy your family time and visit to your Grandie’s art exhibition, I remember my Daughter’s a couple of years ago, it was another very proud Mom moment!! Thank you for sharing WOYWW.

    Aw, The Art exhibition will be amazing, bet youre looking forward to it. Made me smile to see the diary area on your desk.. of all the people I know, you need a diary! I try to use my scrap paper up too, it always looks like scrap paper that I’ve glued down badly, so I. Would be very happy to see you make yours into art!! A Velux type window would be great wouldn’t it, I wonder if you’d find yourself not spreading far from the light, so to speak and in reality!!

    Wow, you are busy! How nice to have a venue for your cards. The ATC’S look wonderful. It must be good to know that your artistic genes got passed down to your granddaughter. I expect you’ll have a great time at her exhibition! Have a good week! Suzanne #27

    What a beautiful collection of ATCs Margaret! I really enjoyed last week, it’s such fun to be part of. Wow, your desk is super busy – I’m not surprised you’re constantly having to replace the hotel/shop cards as you have the knack for good design. Hope you have an amazing time with your family next week, Hugs LLJ 11 xxx

    Hi Margaret, loved your ATC- beautiful. Thanks so much. All the artwork is amazing, isn’t it? I hate getting to the point something isn’t working, I also put it away and come back with a fresh mind & eyes. I hope the art Exhibition goes well for your grandie, My eldest Son did Art & Design at college, so I know how much work they put in! Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #6 XxX

    Hehehe I’m sat here chuckling. I typed Nain but it appears my iPad doesn’t speak Welsh and has wrongly corrected it. Hugs, Annie x

    What a lot of love you’ve had through your letterbox. It’s such a lovely thing to do isn’t it? What a proud Nani you will be too. Have a wonderful time. Hugs, Annie x #12

    It’s been lovely having you as my PIF, Margaret. I’m glad my packet arrived safely – I’m always so worried that things go lost in the post! Nice to see all the other wonderful ATCs you received as well! You’ve certainly got a busy desk this week – and I think it’s always a good idea to have a cardi handy – you never know how the weather shapes up in Britain LOL! Have a lovely week – happy #469! zsuzsa #17

    What a fabulous amount of ATCs you received. All lovely, and all SO unique. I’m so impressed with your card making, especially to the charity shops. And it sounds like you will have a family time that will be wonderful, too. I laughed at your chair. Mine is in about the same condition. Have fun while you are away. Happy WOYWW from #10.

    Hello Margaret, you are busy as always. Lovely ATC’s. Have a wonderful time with your family, especially with your granddaughter. Anne x #20

    What a lovely reason for MIA next week, visiting an art exhibition and one which your grand daughter has her work in. I used to love my time as an art moderator, apart from having time off work it meant I could view the work of up and coming young artists. Those were the days. I see you are still busy making your cards for charity, you are such a busy bee. Have a lovely week in the sunshine and enjoy your visiting next week. hugs and Blessings, Neet 4 xx
