WOYWW # 264

It's Wednesday and that means it's WOYWW  which stands for .......
'What's On Your Work desk Wednesday'.
If you too would like to join in the fun then, take a picture of your work desk, table, etc. and share it with lots of other like minded people.
Hop on over to Julia's blog   Stamping Ground  for more info. Hope to see you there

Hello desk hoppers.
I hope everyone is tickety boo today, I am feeling somewhat less frazzled as it is a little cooler today so I feel less like a wet dishcloth!  Why do we get such horrid humid and muggy days for our summer? 
I haven't been too busy in the craft room department either, but I have managed to photograph the ATC's that I received from the WOYWW anniversary swap.
It is so exciting finding one of these little beauties behind the door.

In the foreground are 6 cutlery pouches that Bella sent me, aren't they great and I love the elephant card, as I told Bella I was born in Africa but don't remember much as we returned to the UK just before my 5th birthday, but I do feel I have a connection with the country and would love to one day go back.
Thank you again ladies for your gorgeous mini works of art x
Looking forward to receiving yours Kay I see it is in the post :))
So, also on my desk are are some NBUS stamps, hi Darnell ;) from Chocolate Baroque a T!m Holtz embossing folder and my circle dies that I am trying to create a card with.
You know when you get an idea for creating something in your head, only it doesn't work when you actually try it out ? well I am at that stage at the mo. Ah well, back to the drawing board as they say.  
I will leave you with a pic of the ATC's I made for the swap, 

 and hope my swapee's received a colour they liked and are not looking and wishing, "Ooo I wish I got the  yellow, blue, plum, pink, purple one" !!!!! lol

Enjoy your desk hopping
Happy Art making

  1. Lovely ATCs Lottie. Great idea to make a set in different colours. Feeling a bit sad that I missed it. Maybe next time . . .
    Have a fun week

  2. Wish I'd done aTCs now, you have some beautiful ones

  3. No one would wish to exchange whatever color ATC they got, Lottie! I can attest to knowing first-hand that these ATCs that you made are WAAAAAAY more remarkable IRL than they appear on the flat screen! And thank you for sharing the lovely ATCs from your friends, too, and especially the lovely NBUS!

    Good luck with your creation. I know what that's like when the mojo juice wants to travel uphill and fights you all the way. Sometimes you just have to have a lie down for a bit or a whole sleep over it and that gets the flow going in the right direction again! I'm not WOYWWing because of that other hop I had today; just stopping in to say hi back to ya!! Enjoy the week!! Hugs, Darnell

  4. :) You created beautiful ATC's! I am SURE that all that received them loved the color they were given because all of them are fab!! You received some beauties as well! HAPPY WOYWW Angie #63

  5. We are in the middle of winter and it poured with rain last night so hard that it woke me up. Glad you like your pouches and card, will let you know when yours arrives this end. I am sure that peeps will be happy with what ever colour they receive. Hope mine arrives soon so I can photograph it for next weeks WOYWW.

  6. Love how you've displayed all your beauties... esp. love those cutlery pouches :)
    Thanks for visiting and leaving such a lovely comment! Have a great week x

  7. Hi Lottie, Fab ATCs.

    Hope you get a nice cooling breeze soon.

    Happy WOYWW Sue 24

  8. Oh, I know, muggy weather is energy sapping, isn't it? All the windows are open to try and catch any slight breeze. The weather is supposed to be on the turn (just before I go on hols, typical!!) but I don't mind, I prefer walking in cooler temps.
    All your ATCs are gorgeous, any colour would have been well received :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 15 xx

  9. Hi Lottie, lots of super ATC's you received, lucky lady and the ones you made are gorgeous too. Well done.
    What part of Africa were you born in? I grew up in Nigeria from the age of 5 until I was 10, rather rose tinted memories of it.
    Hope the weather is cooler now in Yorkshire, it certainly is in North Wales.
    Bless you

  10. Lottie lovely ATC's and I am sure whom ever they went to loved the colour they got because they are beautiful in all the colours. Hope you have a wonderful cool crafting week.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda 74

  11. Well I am very pleased with my blue ATC and would not want to change for all the colours in the rainbow. How fascinating to have lived in Africa, hope you get back one day.

  12. I think that you will be much cooler for a while. not only is Wimbledon on, but I am waiting for my new garden table and chairs to be delivered any minute now, so the weather is bound to turn cold and wet. Your ATCs look beautiful and I am sure that everyone loved them whichever colour they received. Have a great week. xx Maggie #60

  13. I don't see my comment - maybe it went somewhere in outer space (I am from New Mexico). I haven't received your ATC yet; will keep a lookout for it. I got Annie's back because it lacked 10 cents in postage! I haven't gotten your back so I'm hoping it's making it's way to you.

    You received a wonderful assortment of ATCs. It's interesting that you were born in Africa. You should definitely try to get back someday.

    Thank you for visiting me already!
    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs, Kay (17)

    1. Is it my comment on your blog or your comment on mine you can't see? any way I can see both from Yorkshire. Yay! your lovely ATC arrived this very morning great choice of colours, I love the post card image and Poppy's feathers are a perfect match, thank you Kay and Poppy! Hope my ATC finds you soon, fingers crossed. Take care.
      Hugs Lottie x

  14. Hi Lottie, sorry to be late, just back from hols, it was very, very hot up in Scotland too. Love the ATCs you received, I recognised Darnell's as both she and you were kind enough to send me one - thank you!! I love your ATCs and like Darnell says, they look much more beautiful in real life! Thank you again.

    I was nearly born in South Africa but my parents took a last minute decision to go to Canada instead! Hugs, Anne xx

  15. Thanks for dropping by Lottie. I'm very impressed with the ATC's you made and you received some real beautie.
    Lynn :-)

  16. Gorgeous ATCs Lottie and the ones you have received look great too.
    This was my first WOYWW anniversary and I must try to get more involved next year.
    Happy crafting, Angela x #43

  17. Hi Lottie Happy WOYWW - slowly getting to snoop a few more desks. Lovely ATCs you made, like that sentiment and aren't we all just so pleased to be part of this crazy group (I'm addicted) and what a fun ATC swap - talented people. Cheers and have a great weekend RobynO#29

  18. What a beautiful group of ATC's. Love the little easels they are on. And your ATC's are so bright and glittery. I'm a flower freak so they are right up my alley. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.
