WOYWW 255 - a right mess - and still no atc's...

Hi, welcome back for another Wednesday snooping at desks from here there and everywhere...link up with Julia here and join in the fun -   this week you find me with not a lot happening (again) and still not a sign of any ATC's for the anniversary swap even though I did say I'd try and get some done over the long Easter weekend...

 It looks worse than it is (kind of!) because I was kneeling down taking this from just inside the door... that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it... As you can see I was watching the football on Tuesday night!
and kind of round the corner of the sofa... a journal page mid-flow on the "desk"...

That's it from me this week, short and sweet... hope you recover from the shock of the mess soon!

I have an idea for the atc's but, as yet, no actual completed ones - in fact, no started ones even. Is it time to panic? xx Maggie

I'm just now starting mine, but I have much farther for mine to travel. I'll say one thing. Everything is within easy reach. Wish I could say the same. In a way, I envy that about your "desk." Happy WOYWW, with no number yet.

Nikki C said...

There is some serious stash in your space. I missed my floor the other day and found myself sitting on it going through my DP to see what I had :) Happy WOYWW hugs Nikki No# yet

Claire said...

Can you believe I've actually started my ATCs?? I can't! But there's AGES yet...
Happy WOYWW!

Your desk looks productive, even if you say it isn't. Hey, when I have these moments, I tell people it's because I'm forming my creations in my mind. That too is my story and I am sticking to it...My desk looks tidy, but it's only because it's only one of two desks and trust me, you don't want to see the other one!

Chrysalis said...

Hi Helen - I haven't even started on my ATC yet - and I've just visited a desk with Christmas cards on (for this year!!) Sigh. Your desk looks like a fab place to play - enjoy, and have a good week. Chris # 19

I haven't started my ATC's yet but, the more I visit the more I think I better get a move on. Your stash makes me a tad envious!.

I totally enjoyed making my ATCs and as Idid them in a concentrated block of time at a crop I made great progress. Look forward to seeing yours - and love the journal page a post back BTW. Very muted and pretty.

Happy WOYWW!

Your desk looks very busy, even if you're not...at least it will be all ready for you when you get the urge to make some ATC's. Vikki #22

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Ah, so much potential lies on your floor!! Do you know where everything is?!
I'm off to Julia's tomorrow to make my ATCs...they're not going to be anything complicated, this will only be the second lot of stamping I've ever done!! But I do have an idea after seeing one of her stamps :-)
Hugs, LLJ 14 xx

Annie said...

My knees scream every time I think of you working on the floor :-/ Such a lot of fab stuff to play with though :-)
Hugs,

Eliza said...

I usually don't create ATC's anymore gave them up about 5 years ago (sworn off them actually) but I have been thinking to break my rule and create some this year, just to be different. It's not like I have much time either, I must be bonkers to even contemplate creating ATC's again. Your room and playspace does make my heart skip a beat but then I would love to get into it and have a rummage around and play too, but and here is the big but, I don't play on the floor very well. All being said I still love your room.

Happy WOYWW

Crafting AND football - surely that's just too much fun in one go! (Annie hates the footie but I am a fan -although Shrewsbury will probably go down this season!) x Jo #30

My name is Cindy said...

No Atcs for me yet either... Honestly Helen I don't know how you carft on the floor, it makes my knees ache just looking at your photos! Craft and footie - heaven for some (but not me LOL). Looking forward to seeing you soon. Happy WOYWW, Cindy #56

Regina Hamilton said...

I haven't made up my mind about the swap yet. But if I do participate, I'll try to figure out a design at the last minute. #61

Shaz Brooks said...

You are not alone with the ATC's- still nothing here either. I'm hoping that inspiration will strike fairly soon, or this could turn into a panic. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #54 xxx

Now that is definitely a hoarder's cavern, I like this low down angle, I can really see everything! So who won the footie?

CraftygasheadZo said...

I love seeing your photos and straight away amongst your stash I spotted the footy on tv first!! No surprises hey? Am just popping in to say hi as no desk from me. Not been too great after going to 2 footy matches in 3 days so desk is empty. Take care Zo xx

BJ said...

SNAP - no ATCs here either, really ought to write it on my list along with the timmy tag for this month. Thanks for your visit BJ#52

Caro said...

What a wonderfully busy space. My ATCs are planned in my head, but have yet to materialise in real life! Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#89)

Laura said...

Happy WOYWW! You'll have more fun making the ATCs when you're in the mood -- why force it? (The advice of a lifelong procrastinator, so beware -- ha, ha) ~ Laura #69 [http://bookworm.typepad.com/]

Angela Radford said...

Hi Helen, it's not a mess, just full of activity.
Happy Crafting, Angela x48

Elizabeth said...

Hi Helen, interesting how 'desks' look so different depending on where the photo is taken from ... yours looks very much like a crafting nest from this angle :) Hope the footie went well and your team won. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #39

VonnyK said...

I always love your "desk" as it look just like mine only lower :) ATC's are out for me this year, way too much on my plate. Hope the mojo comes quickly and you get heaps of them done.
Have a great week.

MommaRock said...

Happy WOYWW Sorry to peek in and dash... You have so much inspiration around you and I love that your art journal is out, I am doing the DLP also and have mine tucked in a spot I don't see it all the time. That is why I am behind (boohoo)!!
hugs, Kimmer #96

Sharon Madson said...

I haven't started my ATCs yet either. I have never made one before, but I want to take part! :)
You have a great space for creating.

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Helen, and thanks for stopping by my desk earlier. Your "floor space" really works well for you - I use mine too and quite often have to pick my way through the folders and boxes to get to my desk. It;s not a mess it's a working space. Cheers and have a great week Robyn#18

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh lawks H..are you backing yourself out the door with increasing stash?!! Can't tell you how pleased I am to finally get the ATCs underway. Ok, SMUG!

Angie said...

I agree, the angle of the photo can make the desk look more cluttered than it is! Looks like you have lots of fun supplies.

RosA said...

Hi Helen,
You've got lots of creative possibities on your "desk" :)
I don't sit at a desk either, I have to stand up to do any art/craft. Makes it tricky going to workshops as I do not feel comfortable sitting at a table and everything seems to be at the wrong angle somehow :)
Have a good week and thanks for dropping by,
RosA # 36

I love the knee-level view of your centre of operations... right in the midst of the action (and the footballing action too!).

famfa said...

Kneeling down perking round the door, now there's an idea for a weekly desk hop - what position do you get into to photograph your desk. I too was kneeling down

The evidence can be used by the prosecutor in the case, the lawyer on the defense side, insurance companies, and civil litigators. Actors call it stage fright but most seem to have an uncanny knack of overcoming it.
