 Really really quick post with several pics...just finished my ATCs for this months swap over at the Stamp Man where the theme is Friendship..I missed the last one because I ran out of time but was determined to get back in again this month. Decided to keep them simple so the images and words spoke for themselves, backgrounds created with Distress stains and Inks and images coloured with Pro-markers...not that happy with some of the attempted shading, I'm still learning!
This is one is my favourate. I've used Crafty individuals Stamps with an Artistic Stamper crackle background stamp.
And now for my what a lot of sorting out I did at the weekend thanks to some new storage I had delivered.
I sorted out this messy lot -  
 and turned this untidy space -
 Into this organised slot -
 and this tidy, clear and ready for action desk!!
I love it...the shelves are sold as CD storage - and although I do have some CD cases in them it's probably not what the manufacturers had in mind as mine contain unmounted stamps - and I still have some space to add to my collection ! Oh - excuse the orange blob...I forgot when I took the pic I had a 'left here to dry but cannot be shared yet' project on the top!  
Please go visit Julia at the Stamping Ground where loads of other desks can be found for your enjoyment! Happy WOYWW everyone...Thanks for stopping by...Esther xxx

  8. Hi Esther, Your ATC's are wonderful, the colouring is great, you're so hard on your self. I love the sentiments you've chosen, just right:0) What a tidy area now, I just wonder will you be able to find anything? LOL :0) xxx

  9. I really love those beautiful vintage cards. They are so beautifully done. Your tidying up is awesome, and those shelves are great. I was very lucky when my husband sorted my room for me, as he made me a whole wall fitment of similar sized shelves, right in front of my desk to store all the odds and ends you always need close at hand.
