Greetings from my work desk on this rainy Wednesday morning!

Many thanks to all of you who gave such wonderful suggestions for my planned giveaway!  I truly appreciate the support, suggestions, and links I received as to how to go about this rather large undertaking.  And because of your support, I decided to go for it!   Drop by next Wednesday for the reveal!  In the above pic you can see one of the pages I am working on.

I am still waking up early but have been able to go back to sleep and catch a few more winks before getting up for the day.  I think once school ends, the stress will begin to diminish and my regular sleep pattern will return. 

It was wonderful coming home every afternoon to discover another WOYWW anniversary ATC waiting for me.  Thank you to all the creative friends who swapped with me.

My creativity level is a little low.  I am thinking it is a combination of end-of-the-school-year stress and a sinus infection I have been fighting.  Either way, swaps have a due date so they must be created and sent off.

ATC of ABCs: #2 & #3
ATC Challenge #5-Red, White and Blue
No, I didn't rob a bank!  The blue ink bottle literally exploded when I opened it.  Yes, I went to school the next day with blue fingers.  Not one of my students said a word.

  1. Thanks for sharing all your lovely ATC's I love the Red, White and Blue your have done. The idea of an cute too. Amazes me what is all created. Hoping your school days are about to end. My grands get out Friday. Most in our area were out early last week. Enjoy

  2. Hi Diane, thanks for visiting me this morning, just back from dog walking.
    I can understand the end-of-school-year stress, I remember it well but thank goodness I don't have to worry about it anymore, though don't get me wrong, I loved teaching and don't regret the years I spent doing it.
    Loving the ATCs.
    Happy crafting, Angela x

  3. YOu just need to be careful when handling money now just in case wink wink... I do hope you are feeling better soon, everyone seems to run on burn out nearing the end of school terms, it's like the body has had enough already. Glad to see you received my ATC.

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs Eliza & Yoda

  4. Hi Diane and thanks for visiting my desk, I got your email too. You have a real cool collection of ATCs and as I read you swap all the time, that would definitely keep you busy...I struggle with the small cards. I'm struggling at the moment to find my MOJO, two days home and no cards..mmm .. pressure is on too as I need one for the Society of Stampaholics card chain challenge. Love my garden, and it was a big job but it needed to be done. Well back to my desk Cheers and have a super week and our thoughts are with Julia ...RobynO

  5. Super ATCs and the 6x6 pages are adorable. Thanks for the visit BJ#??

  6. Fab ATCs and i love the 6x6 pages.

    Hope you have a lovely WOYWW.

    Thanks for visiting my blog earlier. Sue (GracefulGreyhounds)

  7. What a lucky girl you are to receive all of these wonderful ATCs and what a talented girl you are making them! Just stunning, Diane! You win the prize for inkiest fingers, that's for sure! And you didn't even rant about what else might have gotten all inky! I hope the end of the term goes well, and then without the stress, you start to feel better and more creative! Hugs, Darnell

  8. Diane, I am envious of your work desk. And I love your ATC's. I can't even find my work desk...ha ha... It is that time to get organized. I have the books and papers everywhere, the gems and jewels in my attic studio, all the stamps/inks and paints...everywhere...yarns/knits...oh my. I have way too much stuff. I am planning a "stuff" swap with members of my art group. Everyone must gather up 5 different items from their creative stash to swap. Someone is going to get way more than 5 from me. I have way, way, way too much. And I have vowed not to purchase one more art supply until this one dwindles down abit. I better get crackin'. Take a deep breath girl! Stress is not good for you! Aloha
