Julia over at the Stamping Ground blog for hostessing this linky party for the most curious of all crafters! If you are curious, too, pop over there to see more crafty workspaces. Here are several pictures of mine all from this last week...today my desk was too boring! For the first two pictures I was doing an experiment to see how long it takes to tidy up my desk, at least enough to start a fresh new project. First is the before... in the center up there is a right side shot...then left side shot down here:
I had A LOT of fun making the ATC's last week! :)
Actually the left side shot was tidied a day earlier a little so that picture doesn't even show how truly messy it had really gotten. I had all kinds of little embellishments, that I randomly make when the urge moves me, to try out on the ATC's. I really enjoyed making them because they are so little my little embellies didn't get lost! So I got to use some darling ones I've been holding onto for awhile. :)
Anyways, approximately less than one hour later here is my desk again:
And the last picture is to *prove* I didn't just shove everything behind me...not that there is anything wrong with doing that. NO judgment here! :) lol After all I'm only showing two areas of my craft room, not The Corner. Its hideous. So so wrong.
Hope you are all having a lovely inky stampy cutty craftabulous week so far! :)
Edit: Heard back from two dears that I sent ATC's to so I will now post pics of them! Well, I'm still pretty excited about this ATC stuff. lol
The first is the one I sent to Miss Julia...I put a brad through the bird tail and covered it with the pink gingham bow so the bird moves, kinda like clock hands, only not... :) I didn't ink the edges or base layer of this one because I wanted it to have a really clean crisp look. Most of the embellishments come from the Girls Paperie, I think, except I put together the tassel thingy. It was fun to make! :)
