Disaster Desk-WOYWW #157

There she is, in all her messy glory. I know I've had worst disasters on my desk but after last week's tidy area, this is quite a change.  The sad thing is that I only have a few cards to show for such a pile of slop.  I haven't been feeling well and that dampens the mood like nobody's business.  Anyway, I've seen the doc and am hopefully on the mend now (although it might not be from the medicine he gave me, but from the one I opted not to take). 

The mess is mostly parts and pieces from the May Club Scrap kit, the one that I'm not sure if I really like or not.  The inks and a few random things are around from last week's ATC swap for WOYWW. I originally made 4 WOYWW ATCs and had offered to swap out a stash of older ATCs I had lying around.  Then I felt bad and made more WOYWW specific ATCs to go with my older ones.

Speaking of ATCs, check out these beauties that have rolled in.
The first ATC I am so excited to have scored! It is one of the ever-famous dumfing pieces by Twiglet. Since I first heard of dumfing, I was so curious and wanted to see and feel one and now I can! The second one is from Sheri and I just love it! The colors are so happy and the ATC is simple and sweet.  That is my kind of ATC since I'm not an artsy person.  The third ATC is a doodle bird from Kay (whimsygirl). I just love him too and I love how he is singing the WOYWW theme song (I'm sure we have one). He is hand did and I appreciate that since I stamp since I can't draw.

For those of you who remember the WOYWW when my hubby was sad that a snake he saw slithered away before he could take a picture of it, it came back to visit in our yard.  It is a harmless King Snake.  You can see his photo here or you can skip it if the thought gives you the heebie jeebies.

Your desk is just well used and looks good to go! Lovely collection of ATCs and it has been such fun receiving and sending them.
Thanks for your visit and your comment about my patchwork card. I do make fabric patchwork too and I love it.

Hi Princess Judy,

I've never heard of dumfing... will have to google it.

Unfortunately the New Mexico fire that is blowing your way isn't even 10% contained.... they said it could go on for another month. Now there's another small fire about 20 miles from where I'm at so I'm getting smoke like crazy. I hope you feel better soon - does staying inside help?

I'm glad you like my doodly bird. He was fun.

It is a bit of a mess but a very creative one! I love the ATCs you have received and have seen a few dumflings around today, they are simply gorgeous. As for the snake I did have a look, he is quite pretty but so glad we have so few snakes here in the UK! Happy WOYWW, Anne x #24

This looks like one busy desk! Mess is good!

Sarah said...

Hope you feel back on form this week...and I make LOADS of mess when doing cards... fab atcs there - lucky you! Enjoy your week, Sarah at 11.

Spyder said...

Aren't they fantastic ATC's! and yes...the quilted bit of paper on my desk finally made itself, with my help, into a card for my mum at about 4 in the morning!....then, the cat that isn't ours, woke me up at 7! No, your desk is very 'creative' and not messy at all!!
I've given up on mine...going to bed now! very tired for some reason!

SophieNewton said...

Don't think of it as a mess, more an explosion of creativity. Happy WOYWW!

Sandy said...

Your ATC from me is winging its way to you as we speak. I have never heard of dumfing, Sounds interesting. You have some lovely ATCs there. Love messy creative desks. Sandy :) #98

Fantastic ATC's and think your desk looks great.

That snake is scary!

Thanks for visiting my blog, hugs Rach x

Tracy said...

Thanks so much for popping by my site! Messy Schmessy... I think it looks deliciously creative! I hope you get to feeling better soon. Warmly, Tracy #93

Your fine print is always wonderful but today was especially hilarious!! I so wish that most get-out clauses were written like that! DH and I hooted. Just as well we didn't buy any major machinery today as the next Venusian transit is rather a long way off - the warranty would have run out long before!!!
Hope you're on the mend and are feeling better very soon :)

Jingle said...

Very cute cards!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Ha, did you just put that fine print in or have I always missed it? Because you know, Venus DID cross the sun!

I saw the snake before I could help myself. Ew. I'll take Lizzie any day!

Hope you are feeling better and on the right meds and back to making some sense out of the slop on your desk! The ATCs you got are super cool. I'm off to see what the hay "dumfing" is. It sounds a little naughty, but that's just how my mind works.

Have a great week!

VonnyK said...

I love a messy desk, I work better that way. What on earth is dumfing, sounds a bit rude. I had a closer look at your photo and it looks really interesting and gorgeous.
Have a great week and thanks for your lovely comments.

The mess on my desk is never in proportion to what I actually make ... I sympathise we just can't help but make a creative mess. Lovely ATC's and I hope mine arrives soon. I also am a proud owner of a dumfing but I think I have been calling it a dumfling. ... oh well I am sure woyww are very forgiving. Have a lovely week.

Di said...

Lurve the ATCs Judy - and as always the small print almost made me wet myself here, love it (the fine print not the damp patch!). Trust me, I've seen messier desks this week, Did you see Spyder's for example - sheesh! You could get buried under all her stuff and never be found again.

Belated Happy WOYWW honey!

Di xx

Debs Willis said...

that is so NOT a messy desk! Can only be classed as a disaster when everything falls sideways onto the floor in a crapalanche! Yours is 'creatively busy' :-)

Happy woyww


Ann B said...

I'll give the snake a miss Judy - yuk - but your desk is not to be missed, so messy it makes me feel very good, almost saintly, about mine. My ATC is on it's way to you - posted yesterday and yours arrived here about half an hour ago, and a bonus - not one but two ATCs. So pleased to get the desert one and then 'BATS!' as a bonus. Now why did it make me laugh when I saw the one word on the back? Not sure if it's me or you who is 'bats!' but I love it.

What fab ATC’s. We really do have some very talented crafters out there, don’t we.

Now your desk Judy….well that’s more like it!
I was beginning to get a bit worried when I saw how tidy it was last week and thought then that you were coming down with something…….….seems I was right!
Hope you’re on the mend soon

Thanks for sharing and

Happy Crafting!

Sandy Leigh said...

Love your workspace, even in its messy glory! That looks like a roll-top desk--love those! And the ATCs are so fun. Have a good week.

sandee said...

King Snakes are great for eating mice aren't they? Seems like I read that somewhere cause it's rattling up there in my head. You're such a good girl for showing the ATC's off and I am so jealous that you have one of twiglets dumflings, I've been perstering her with all sorts of questions lately about making them! lol I've spotted yours twice out there in WOYWW land on display! I don't think any of mine have reached their destinations yet :( waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Clare with paint in her hair said...

gorgeous ATC's! I love your old roll top style desk, I want one so bad

...the yorkshire fox... said...

Hi Judy me again...I had to chuckle at the comment you left me, the denim on my desk got made into flowers today ready for a card & you said you'd done made flowers too & the chipped glass glitter is by Tim Holtz, he has gold too...Mel :)

peggy aplSEEDS said...

you've gotten some wonderful ATCs! and yes, desks can go from neat to messy in such a short time!

SueH said...

Hi Judy, you were asking about my cream wire basket that’s on my desk.
I think I brought it in The Range and it holds all my Distress Stains, Distress Re-Inkers and my Stickles. There might be a stray bottle of Glossy Accents and a couple of Gloss Touch 3D paints in there too!
I certainly tend to use them more if they are staring me in the face when I’m working!
Thanks for stopping by.

All looks fab, eeek snake! Take care my WOYWW friend, am still snooping, all but a little late! Zo xx

Barb King said...

Thanks for stopping by my desk! You got some nice ATC's from fellow WOYWWers, it was fun to swap, wasn't it? I still have a few more to make for some late requests. Read your newest post, glad to hear you are feeling better.

Shoshi said...

Lovely ATCs, Judy! Thanks for the info about the snake. I thought it was beautiful. We have nothing like that in the UK, and well done hubby managing to photograph it!

Thanks for your comment on my blog, and glad you like what I'm doing at the moment. I usually put my mistakes in as well as my successes because then maybe we can all learn from them - me especially lol!

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #89

Queen Lightwell said...

Em, last but not least? I'm running so very behind this week it appears! lol Your desk looks delightfully of my favorite descriptive phrases for crazy crafters havens and workspaces, including my own! :)
Thanks for stopping by and sharing that rhyme with me, I just may use it, its a very little bit snarky indeed! ;)
