WOYWW #312...ATC Swap Day!!!


Happy WOYWW!!

You find me with mixed emotions today, I love ATC Swap Day at WOYWW, but my Ma left a couple of days ago and it feels a bit odd without her..

Well it's a good job I have you lovely people from WOYWW here with me.

No desk photo today, just the delicious ATC's and their wrapping!

Wondering what all this WOYWW chatter is about? It's that fab time of the week where we get to join the lovely Julia over at her blog Stamping Ground and have a global desk nosy..

This week we are swapping ATC's for the 6th Anniversary of WOYWW - you can find more info here.

I have 3 ATC's to swap (the one for my adjacent person not included) Julia if you are reading I do not have your address and I would love to send you something..

As you can see I made x2 kinds this year. Once again with their own mini envelope. The bigger envelope is what they are being posted in - all made by my fair hands, a Martha Stewart scoring board and American Crafts papers.

Thanks to Ma (she was my delivery girl) there is a little extra 'thing' in with each ATC.

I used Lawn Fawn and Newton's Nook stamps and a MFT stitched rounded rectangle die. All inks are by Tsukineko. All stamps coloured using Promarkers.

They were fun to make and I love how they have come out - that Lucky Waving cat is an "in" joke between JT and I :)

Anyway, msg me or leave a comment on my blog, if you want to be one of the 3 recipients. I am based in NYC by the way and happy to post anywhere.

Yay! I feel happier already.


p.s Kim - I just saw the post LOL - Thanks!!


  1. Great to have your mum around but also sad when they leave. Oh I didn't wrap my ATC's but I do have one here for you as you are below me on the list. Unless of course you got one from the crop. So can you send my your snail mail address please. my email address is elizabethanneharms at yahoo dot com dot au

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda #23
    Happy 6th Anniversary WOYWW

  2. Glad you've had some great Mum time!! looking forward to seeing your atcs all over the world!! Helen 9

  3. Doesn't a house always feel so empty after a guest has left, even worse when it is a special Mum who is missed. Hugs to you. I am so excited to be the lucky recipient of the swap! I will contact you with my addy using your side bar widget. #26

  4. AAh I can imagine how you are missing your Ma, but bet you had a lovely time with her..sending lots of hugs my friend X Your ATCs look fabulous, you have been busy, Happy WOYWW #6, sadly once again time beat me and I even didn't register it was Wednesday, hugs Carole Z XX

  5. Yes, it's sad when someone you love has to leave again. But my mother always says: remember, I am only a phone call away!
    Your ATCs and special bags look great! I hope to participate next year, God willing.
    I’m still travelling but managed to have internet today so I’m visiting as many of you as I can. Happy anniversary all! Six years is quite a long time.
    Have a good week and CU Wednesday

  6. oh bless, its so lovely to see close family. Love your atcs and the bags you made look awesome, Thanks for the snoop on your workspace

  7. I love to think that we can be a diversion for you, re-adjusting after a long visit is hard...takes a few days huh, to get the routine to take over your mind! Your ATCs are just lovely, you've gone to a lot of trouble; your Desker friends appreciate that.

  8. Happy Anniversary! Both for WOYWW, and our PIF swapping last year. Love all your handmade envelopes. I bought a scor-thinging because of Hettie, and finally used it! LOL! Have a fabulous day...

  9. Great ATCs and the lucky cat is so amazing. I can't wait to use my own stamp with him on it, I love it. Beautiful matching envelopes as well x

  10. Hi Claire, happy 6th WOYWW. very cute ATCs with envelopes - well done. Have a great week Cheers Robyno#14

  12. Your ATCs are darling, and I was very impressed by the envies, too. A long visit from anyone can lead to readjustments when they leave. I hope we are able to help take some of those mixed emotions away on this very special day. Happy, happy 6th WOYWW anniversary from #1.

  13. WONDERFUL WOYWW buddies, thanks for your lovely comments :) Cx

  14. Sure your mum will be back for more visits soon in the mean time have a great woyww anniversary and happy crafting, Angela x 37

  15. So nice for you to have your mum visit, Claire, and you're sure to miss her but I'm sure you'll talk to each other in the meantime :) Your ATCs are lovely and the envelopes are super - love the bright and cheerful colours. Belated Happy WOYWW 6 - I'm slowly but surely visiting everyone still. Hugs, Elizabeth x #54
