Busy, busy week! 
I must apologize to my blog friends that so kindly visited last week that I did not return in kind.  I REALLY appreciate all your visits and comments!!!!!  More than you'll ever know!!!!  I promise to be a better blog friend this week!  Things have calmed somewhat here.  Whew!!

My desk as of tonight

Part fallout from last project and playing/planning with new trims.  Love the little vials of beads from ART-C.  The store where I found them here is Beverly's.  It is like a super, tiny Hobby Lobby.  They were full price though Michael's had them on clearance months ago.  Shoulda, coulda, woulda...
Anyway, part of what you see is the fallout from my WOYWW ATC...teehee!  Completed today.  Wouldn't you like to peek???  Sorry, must wait for the day!

Here is an ATC I made for my sweet neighbor, Dottie for Mother's Day.  She loves blue, really loves blue!  As in her car, her house and clothes match and the things in her yard.  (another post) Click on the picture to enlarge to see the detail.
Recently Laura Carson featured my ocean/nautical ATC on her blog Artfully Musing.  So wonderful of her and you absolutely MUST check out her site!!!

I cannot wait to post my ATC for Julia's 3rd Anniversary Swap!  Check out the fun here

Thank you ever so much for your visit and comment!!  I cross my heart I will visit you too!!!!!!!!!
