WOYWW 400 - ATC production starts again

This is What is On Your Workdesk no.400 (I would be jumping around in celebration if I hadn't caught a cold - only one week after recovering from the flu!).  I haven't been here for all 400 - but it has been a few years on and off that I have been sharing photographs of my craft room on a Wednesday morning.  (ETA - it was WOYWW 143 on 29th February 2012!)

It is early this Wednesday.  The aforementioned cold means that I am sleeping even less than usual.  Looking at it in a positive way, it does mean that I am catching up with all the tv programmes I had recorded.

I am showing the small amount of desk immediately in front of my pc screen this morning, as I am slowly making two ATCs for the monthly swap in the Life Book 2017 community.  (BTW - the 20% off code for joining Life Book has now ended - sorry, I will amend my sidebar today - but it is still incredibly good value for so many fantastic lessons and lots of people are joining, so don't feel it is too late.)  Even my enthusiasm for art/craft has left me, so I am doing simple designs with coloured pencils - but will add some glitter to make them slightly more exciting!  You can also see one of my folders containing ATCs received in past swaps - it is wonderful to look through and remember each theme.


Well, I had better get this published and drink more water (the only way to stop my cough).

Hope you are all feeling better than me.

  4. So sorry to read you caught a cold whilst still vulnerable, hope it's not the three to six week version that's doing the rounds (and which I caught on Boxing Day!), feel better soon. Rubbing Vicks Vapour rub in to your feet before bedtime may also help with the cough, if you aren't already doing so.

    Good luck with the ATC's

    Happy 400th WOYWW

  8. Hope your cold gets better soon. I've managed to avoid colds this winter so far - touch wood. The way it usually goes: our son brings home a simple cold bug - he recovers in a couple of days and me and my husband develop it into something horrible and get stuck with it for weeks! I haven't tried the monthly ATC swap yet - I think I remember reading about it. I did the annual swap last year, which was quite fun.

  10. Hi Ali, sorry to hear you have the dreaded bug too. I'm sure we can't pass it on over the network Lol! I was okay till we went to France and I think I must have met a foreign Body Lol! I keep trying to do a bit in between the coughing and sneezing but...... sorry had to blow my nose Lol!!! sure you didn't need to know that Hee Hee! Loving your ATC, I used to do lots of swaps with them but haven't really made many for a while except when Julia does her swaps. Better move on, take care and hope you're feeling better soon, Angela x 23

  12. Hi Ali. Sorry you are having to miss the champagne - if it's any consolation I wouldn't be having it either 'cos I'm allergic to fruit!! Despite feeling pretty rough, you seem to be achieving things. Well done.
    Take care. God bless.

  20. Hi Ali, sorry to hear you are not well - hope you make a speedy recovery. Try Vick's Vapour Rub - a little under your nose is supposed to help. It's ages since I made an ATC and yet they are fun to do and fun to collect too. Thanks for your earlier visit and comment. I love Graphic45 too but I'm on a self-imposed moratorium - no more paper buying until I've reduced the pile I have already. What you saw on my desk today is all the Graphic45 is my last - for a while anyway :) Happy 400th WOYWW. Take care and get well soon. Hugs, Elizabeth x #28

  21. Hi Ali, Sending heaps of positive healing thoughts and hugs (((Ali))). Hope the cold soon goes.

    Your number has changed from 5 to 4. Think several people have found that. Mine had changed.



    Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    Happy 400th WOYWW

  24. So sorry you are sick -again! Your immune system didn't get a chance to reload before being attacked again :-( I'm sure you "mojo" will return when you are feeling better :-) I have an ATC binder like yours that I like to look through as well! Happy 400th! Thanks for sharing! Lindart #47

  26. Oh dear colds are no fun at all, you need some good summer sunshine to clear your head eh?? Love the atcs Ali, and good to see you are making something useful even though not 100%. More water definitely good idea with colds, you need more fluid than normal
    Thanks for sharing your inspiration, happy WOYWW 400!

  30. Oh dear... I hope you are feeling better by now! I haven't made ATCs in a while so maybe it's time to create some... I hope to join the annual woyww swap again (if I recall right, it is in June?) Thanks for stopping by my desk last week, happy 400th and a hug from Holland, Marit #20

  31. It sure is the pits having cold after cold/flu isn't it? I have a mega period to add to the misery and went to the GP today for medication to stop the flood but would you believe after 3 hours of non-stop this morning it seems to have calmed down WITHOUT the medication! Although glad I have 2 weeks emergency medication just in case now. Glad you have managed some ATCs, I haven't done anything all week, no dancing, no badminton, no work, no crafting. Feeling a tad better today so maybe just maybe..... Thanks for the visit BJ#29
