WOYWW #227

Back here at home .........  in between all my 'business' I have a desk to show!!!
If you want to know what I am on about then click the tab at the top of the page - Julia won't mind, or anyone else for that matter............ and if you join in ..... we'll just laugh with you!!!!

My darling DH had a parcel delivered and brought it into the craft room to show me ........... indoctrinated ? Never!!!
So this packaging is now being transformed into ATCs.

The first ones are down in the lower right corner (the brown ones) and I am in the midst of 'creating' the others ones (see alternate Blog here)

And for your information, these will be put to one side tomorrow as I have to continue with my Christmas swap - 10 Lords a Leaping and 9 Ladies Dancing.

Have a good WOYWW week......


  1. Great ATC's! I really love the one with the dragonflies :) Uniflame - 75

  2. Very innovative using the packaging I wouldn't have thought to use it in that way!!! And recycling !!! Eco crafter you are this week!

  5. What a fab idea to use the packaging like that. The ATCs are wonderful. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x #80

  6. What fabulous upcycling of that packaging. The bright colors and dimension of your ATC's is wonderful. Have a great week and Happy WOYWW! Danie #16

  7. Love the ATC's. Thanks for stopping by. Happy crafting #4

  8. I love packaging boxes. I usually save them "for when I need them" but now I need to clean up, and am tossing several out - it just takes up too much space. So having seen this... I don't know if it's good. (To have found another use for the packaging boxes....) ;)
    Thanks for sharing!

  9. Hi Christine
    a girl after my own heart and I am sure many other crafters. We can always make use of something that others would consider rubbish and throw it away.
    In my house even my son says to me, mum can you make use of this or is it for the bin
    Happy WOYWW and wishing you a great week

  12. Hello Christine.
    I love recycling too.It totally delights me when I make something with items that would have been discarded. I haven't heard if you ever received your package. I spent quite some time cutting and prepping the contents...and cost to post it to the UK. Please let me know if you have received it. Thanks Carole


I make my cards for sheer pleasure so thank you for taking the time to comment.
