------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi WOYWW friends, how are you doing?

My desk is clean, so instead of showing you a boring clean desk, here are some shelves, lol I love baskets and boxes, it's easy to grab a ribbon box, or a bead box and take it to my desk to work, then when I'm finished I take the box back to the shelf!


And why sandee is your desk so clean you ask? Well, I am glad you asked! I was taking pictures of all the lovely ATC mail for you to enjoy!

Sarah sent me these super cute ATC's which she calls vintage chic...sarah honey, I was born in the 50's and the 50's ain't vintage...ahem...lol....call it retro chic! Vintage is....errr...old, I am not vintage! lol But oh so cute...and hey, that's me! hee hee ;) But she is getting ready to debump, so all is forgiven!
Anne sent me this adorable retro collages ATC, and everyone knows how I love my funky glasses! isn't she just adorable? ( the ATC's are too ) Anne makes such great projects and I highly recommend following her blog so you don't miss out on anything!
Ali sent me this cute hand drawn ATC and card, but she didn't write her blog addy so I don't have a link up for you. I love the doodling and the black and pink colors!



So what's on your desk, closet, drawer or floor...nosey inquiring minds want to know!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

and please don't forget that I have a Project Pinterest link up, so if you pin and create something then we would love to see what you've done!

Wow, you really have got some great ATC's, we should get Julia to do a swap every anniversary!
Love your neat boxes on shelves.
Have a great week.

Hi The ATC's are great - I did my first one for this swap but can see how they could be addictive & a great place to play ! Baskets look a good idea for not covering your who;e desk with "stuff" when you are working ! Have a great week Ali #39

RosA said...

Hi Sandee, Your baskets on the shelves look very organised. A lot of my stash is in plastic boxes all piled on top of each other and I inevitably want the one at the bottom. I will be doing a post next Wed (or maybe before) about all the lovely ATCs I have received.

Fab atc's ... Thanks for the vintage explanation. In our end of the world the term "Junk" morphed into vintage and all the prices went up.

Went to IKEA in Dallas last week to check into storage. Ended up buying a couple smaller sized Expedits and a corner desk from IKEA from a friend who heard I went and offered it up! BTW! Read the comment you made on Elizabeths post...Dancing naked around a mushroom ring, howling at the moon...now I thought they had put moonshine still's down around your part of the woods. Hmmm....I thought we Okies only did that kind of stuff. Found out from my son a new route to Virginia Beach so may wave as I pass by soon. Vickie #23

Love the way you shelves look! And what brilliant ATC's you have :) Happy WOYWW! kissinia

Helen said...

CraftygasheadZo said...

Super storage you have there, I'm the same, love putting things into baskets etc. Take care & enjoy snooping. Zo xx 74

BJ said...

Cool ATCa and stash filled shelves - what more could a retro chic need? PS My DH was born in the 50's too and he is definitely vintage - LOL BJ#47

Franka Benjaminsen said...

The ATC's you've received are beautiful. Love them all and you've taken great pictures of them. Putting your stuff in a basket is a brilliant idea. When I'm crafting in the living room (because it's warmer there) I run the whole day between the living room and my craft room. Anyway... it's good for my health LOL. Bye, Franka

Laura said...

You look super organised... I'm more than a bit jealous! :)

I really love that glasses ATC!! I felt like that comment 'when I'm finished I take the box back to the shelf' was directed at me. Well I suppose that would be one way to do it but I am more a 'keep piling it on the desk till there is no room to work' kinda gal. (Tidiness is not my strong point). Thanks for visiting and for sharing - Happy WOYWW Cindy #8

Fab ATCs. Well organised shelves. Thanks for the opportunity of having a peep at your workspace - trying to make a few visits early this week! Hazel, WOYWW #87 x

April said...

Lovely ATC's! Loving your shelf storage, baskets are ideal as you say! I definately need more storage.... or maybe I need to stop buying crafty stash.... hmm.... no I NEED more storage :o) x April #100

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Oh I love that funky eyeglass ATC. It's like she's watching over those so you don't misplace them :)

Have a happy WOYWW

Darla said...

I too use some baskets for storage...your received some great ATCs..#118

Peggy Cain said...

love the ATCs sure wish I had played along well maybe next time.

Redanne said...

Hi Sandee, loving your storage, everything looks so neat. Well if you are not vintage, then neither am I - whew, that's a relief I can tell you! Thanks for the mention, you are way too kind and very sweet. I love your glasses, will have to try and copy them for my next ATC.......now that's a thought. Crafty hugs, Anne x #43

Craftychris said...

Love all your boxes - I am a bit of a 'box girl' too. The ATC's you received are all fabulous! xx #114

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

Hello - from A Table with a leg on each corner!

I've been AWOL for a while, so have no work-table to photograph this week, started updating my blog and hoping to get back crafting soon. Hope all these peeks at other people's workspace will inspire me!!

Mary Pat Siehl said...

what cool atc cards! very nice!

butlersabroad said...

Lol, definitely retro not vintage, and I love the word "debump"! Just brilliant! I like shelves, you can see what you've got and get to it easily too. I don't like this heat believe me! 80's sound so perfect right about now!

Hugs
Brenda

Rita said...

Cute ATCs and I agree with you, the 50s is not vintage! I'm not an antique, either--LOL!

My art table/desk is a mess of watercolor media. ;)

Angie said...

How neat are those shelves ...and wonderful are the ATCs you recieved. I like retro rather than old ....so when does one become old not retro? xx#9

Angie said...

Meant to say ...I tried the ladder but he hung on like Garfield and tried to take everything with him lol

Barb King said...

Hi Sandee,
Thanks for the info about your challenge organization, can you save a website in a file? Is that how you do it? I have got to get a better handle on this, I've missed a few that I made the cards for, silly mistakes. Have a good week. Barb

Amy E said...

Ooooh...fun shelves!!! Looks like you could have an awesome time playing in all those baskets!!!

Thanks for your sweet words about my Father's Day card! It took forever, but I had a fun time making it!

Fabulous ATC's.. love the storage.. I agree baskets are the business!! Hugs May x x x#62

Hey Sandee,

I like boxes and baskets too. Definitely the way to "hide" things right in the open!

You got some nice ATCs there - say, we didn't swap did we? I want one of your ice cream cones.......

Time got away from me this week so I'm not linking up but wanted to see what you've been up to.

Hugs,
Kay

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I like how your boxes are labeled, because without labels I'd never find anything. Boxes and bags and bins, those are my favorite. Sometimes I wonder if it is really the crafting I like or just the storage?!?!?!!! Nevermind. I never said that. Fun, fun ATCs. Love your funky glasses.

Darnell J Knauss said...

It's so much easier to craft (IMHO) when things have places and stay in their places. Thanks for the peek! Amazing ATCs! All the best, Darnell #45

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Well, I took your advice and am dancing by the light of the solstice. Not in the nude, but there will be music.

BTW, I love those baskets. I like how they are interspersed with well labeled other goodies. Happy end of day WOYWW to you, dear.

Lavinia said...

Great storage & fab baskets too, love a nice basket I do :) great looking ATC's in the swap! Have a great week! Happy WOYWW...

scrappymo! said...

What a great organized system you have! Love it!

Neet said...

Some great atc's for your collection - I do love the one with the glasses - a real statement!
Love your cupboards with the boxes, I have a thing for boxes, had to stop myself buying them as I had so many - not just in the craft room either.
Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet #21 xx

KatzElbows said...

The 50s will never be vintage to you, not even if you live to be 250! Besides, retro sounds way cooler.

Great shelves. Nice organisation going on. I shall try to be inspired!

cheers, rachel #19

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

Your shelves look great. I recently organized my shelves, but haven't gotten around to labeling all my containers. As to the ATC's, I need to participate in an ATC swap sometime. You got a great collection going. being born in the late 50s, I agree with your commentary. LOL!

Ann B said...

My word Sandee, how organised are you - shelves look uber tidy. Good to see you got even more ATCs to add to your fabulous collection and I agree about the '50s vintage thing, that can't be vintage, that was my childhood!

Bit late getting round the desks this week as we were out all yesterday, enjoying the sunshine while it lasts.

Queen Of Toys said...

Ok I am putting you out of your misery, it is on the left of the sissors rack under the arm of the light virtually in front of the teddy pen. Front and centre LOL

Thanks for visiting me, I had so much hassle up linking to the site, blog was ready but couldn't link.

I also agree with you the basket or box is so easy to grab off the shelf when you want something. I m a container person myself. Thanks for visiting me.

Happy crafting this week

Nan said...

Thanks for coming by my site (Madame Bizarro #162). Vintage would be the real thing, retro is something made to look like the original....just cuz I'm a word person. Although technically vintage refers to wine. Anyhoo,enough being a kia. Looking forward to next week! Nan

Shoshi said...

Great ATCs, Sandee! thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. The show is over, and it was a great day but I didn't sell much unfortunately. I'll be blogging about it in due course when I've got over the exhaustion and had a chance to unpack my boxes, and sort my photos. So glad you like what I did for the show - thanks for your nice comment.

Sorry to miss WOYWW this week but just too much else to do.
