WOYWW #328

This is WOYWWednesday - if you want to find out more then checkout the tab at the top of the page - and our thanks go to Julia for hosting this weekly meet up.

I have managed to sort the boxes and find my desk - naw! not really!  just cleared as much as I could to the sides as I had to meet a deadline with my ATCs!  
After my C.R.U.N.C.H. meeting yesterday, I had some time to wait so popped into the Works - the Sales Assistant was very kindly changing the craft area around which made it rather difficult to buy anything crafty - and purchased a new watercolour paper pad.  I like the thickness of this paper for my ATCs and, a bonus, I can cut 18 cards per page without any, or tiny amount of, waste.  

Those eagle eyed of you may spot a few papers just beyond the pad, soon to be used in another ATC swap - Themed Spice and .... and ..... look to the left there ...... a rexel pocket packed ready to go to the seaside .......
Don't for a minute think I am organised .... that is all that is packed!!!!  
I might have time in the evenings - dependant on weather as this is Britain - to make a few cards so I have sorted some kits ready to use..... check back later to see if the bag made it into the suit case!!!

Thanks to all my visitors last week, have a good crafty week.


  1. Great value getting 18 ATC's from one sheet of paper. Hope the weather is kind to you when you are at the seaside.

  2. Watercolour paper is the best isn't it? I buy a thickness that can go through the printer as well....perfect for ATCs and you got a bargain. Hope you have a good time away :-)

  3. Well I reckon you're enjoying fab weather, I surely hope so. Love the idea that the best organised part of your packing is the one that might be least're a nutcase! That size pad is ideal, so much more satisfying to cut up when there's minimal waste.

  4. Hi Christine, I tend to tidy up by pushing aside too. I'd not thought of cutting a sheet of watercolour paper up to make ATCs. Thanks for the tip. Enjoy your time away and don't forget to pick up the bag! Barb#24

  5. Those pads from The Works are good buys. Just checking out if they are feasible for hand made sketchbooks 8-) I will be checking your ATCs

  6. I love watercolor paper and I'm always on the lookout for a good buy. I miss swapping ATCs. I just can't seem to find the time!
    Happy WOYWW!

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