It's finally here!!
What's on your Workdesk Wednesday 3rd Anniversary ATC Swap
My desk just looks like a dumping ground lol. The ATCs for this swap and a stamp camp swap in July are sitting in front of the tv drying out. Here are the ATCs in the making sitting on the hairspray technique back ground, my place smelt like a hair salon. 
Survivor One World-Tribal Council on TV
Production line backgrounds and stamping, is that girl about to slap the other one's back on tv?
The blue backgrounds are done with Luminarte Shimmery glimmer mist spray. The orange backgrounds are done with alcohol inks, both on glossy card stock. Here are my swap ATCs, acck the photos dont do it justice, believe me they look much better IRL.
Fried rice anyone!

So run on over to Julia's place to see what else goes on in the world of crafting.
This is the ATC SWAP post that we have all been waiting for if you are participating. I have extras so if anyone would like to swap with me then email me your address at

WOYWW #155

What's on your Workdesk Wednesday
It's almost here!!
The Anniversary ATC swap WOYWW #156
Meanwhile here is today's messy desk and boy it's a messy one indeed. Somedays it just becomes a dumping ground and sadly I can't blame anyone but myself
 A close up of the current work area, some new Darkroom Door stamps, newly purchased lace which is so yummy and not at all cheap. That will be used in my next class in June. Green opaque microbeads to the left of the new stamps. Cards from the wonderful Jenny Hubbard from BSL for my Stockings for Soldiers project, she's already made 50, putting me to shame. The white pieces with a hole in it is a prototype that I saw at MSG and tried to replicate the construction card.
Sorry to the hungry voyeurs, I have no food this week and it's
not because I am on a diet lol although I should be.
I just didn't take this photo at dinner time.

Pop over to Julia's to see this weekly craze of showing off your messy desk

It's that time of the week again Wednesday and Workdesks. I've been very busy crafting this week as well as other duties The ATCs for WOYWW 156 have moved to the other end of the table, I am rethinking the design as they have all curled up.
Read about the WOYWW Anniversary ATCs here only two more weeks to go.
I have now started on my Christmas Cards for Stockings for Soldiers. You can read about this worthy cause that I am involved in coordinating here
Here is a vertical close up view using lace and glitter to decorate the cards
(FROM DOWN UNDER is written upside down)
For the food lovers my dinner was curry chicken, Chinese Sausages, Rice and my absolute favourite Okra with Belacan sauce
Angie from Shozzys Place asked for the recipe above, the okra and belacan sauce was left over from a restaurant visit, the Chinese sausage was just from a packet and steamed with the rice. The curry chicken is easy as peasy. Onion, garlic, curry powder, chicken pieces, cook in slow heat until all the meat juices come out, it's done

To update you all on last weeks post about the money on my desk, I wouldn't hand over the jacket until Hubby promised me a reward little did I know he would follow through-it was a joke-
I just wanted to know how much he loved that jacket and am pleased to know it wasn't worth as much as me tee hee.

What's on your Workdesk Wednesday
A lot of constructive mess is on mine this week, I finally started crafting again after a long hiatus,
 only because I have to hahahaha. 
  • The copics and instruction manual didn't move.
  • Still didn't open the nestabilites but I did add to it on the left with 2 large ones and some others.
  • More stamps from StampIt Australia
  • Tim Holtz Compendium of Curiosities was acquired
  • Testing out Croco textures
  • The newest set of Distress Inks Spring Seasonal Series
  • Card for my over 55's card making class this weekend

For those of you wondering why there is $80 on the table-well hubby couldn't find his Pooh Jacket so I asked him what it was worth to him if I found it, first he said it was worth as much as me, then he came out with $80 and said that's all he could afford ROFL-funny man!!
See the chocolates are still there.
Making a start on my ATC's for WOYWW 156 May 30th, they look hideous in the photo but IRL they look sensational IMHO.
If you'd like one of my ATCs to swap just email me with your snail mail
24 hours later some disasters LOL

And here is dinner, pork in black bean sauce, snow peas in oyster sauce, Chinese sausages and rice

WOYWW #152

Desk got untider but not so bad this week
For those who are following my food I told you that jar of chocolates would still be full, it now has a companion called homemade apricot jam which has been put aside to send to a friend. Some nestabilities I haven't had time to sort out even open up and I've had it for over 2 months shock horror!! Those two cards are my Secret Sister cards from a group I am a part of.
Almost didn't make WOYWW this week.
Hubby is having an operation on his knee at the end of the month 
so have been busy mentally preparing for it.
This weekend we are off to a pumpkin festival and a vintage one, hope to get some great photos to share and maybe get a cracking move on with my
ATC's for WOYWW May 30 BLIMEY thats only 3 weeks away!!!!

I tried miserably to get to all desks, sadly I only managed to get to
70 and those that visited my desk, life and work got in the way.
Hope over to Julia's to see more desks, I went from #1 spot last week to #172, can't predict it.
