paper dolls and ATCs--What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, #223

Workdesk is once again in the living room, but NOT because the art room is
a mess (it's still very tidy).  If I'm working on something when there are other
people in the house, I'm more centrally located if I'm not back in my hidey hole.
paper doll pieces--one is going to be a mermaid
The box in the upper left corner is full of atcs:
flat atcs for the ATCs Around The World project



I'm working on sending an ATC to every country in the world--as you can imagine,
it's going to be difficult to find an address for every country.  If you wouldn't mind
receiving an atc, or if your country is already "taken" and you know of someone who
would like one, please let me know--you can find more info at the top of my blog in
the tabs.  You know I could seriously use your help with this, WOYWWers.  And
if it's okay with our favorite hostess, I'd like to send the UK card to her?  What say
you, Miss Julia?

Thank you, WOYWWers-- I'll see you later with a big mug of tea and a good long
round of blog visiting.  And thank you, Julia, for the weekly trip around the arty globe.

PS--let me add that the ATCs Around the World is not a swap, although
I won't say no to anyone who wants to send me one, right?  But if you have
an address for a family member or friend or coworker, that would be great,
and no return atc needed!  :)

Wow, thank you, Tera--Australia is already crossed off and going to Danie, another woywwer, but the other two are still on the list. Thanks for the swap-bot idea, that didn't even occur to me, and I've been a member pretty much since it started!

House of Bears said...

What a fabulous idea, we live in Beartain, well, okay, it's Britain and we were shamelessly trying to blag amd ATC. We will pad off and hang our furry heads in shame.

Krisha said...

What a wonderful project you have set up for yourself. Wish I could give you some addresses, but alas out side of WOYWWers all my friends live in the States.

Thank you for your earlier visit.....25 huh? Well in my mind that's about right LOL! But in all reality it is more like 63 as of last May!

Winnie said...

I am smiling just thinking of your ATC project! How fun! I hope you find someone in every country.Sad to say, since I started blogging, I have discovered countries I was unaware of (bad in geography, and how much the world has changed since I was in school!) Love your paper dolls (love vintage faces!) Thanks for the visit! Winnie#79

Wow! The ATCs around the world is an ambitious project for sure. I hope you find addresses. It's good you linked this with WOYWW, lots of folks from all over. Your paper dolls look like fun. Paper dolls sure have changed since I was a kid!

Love the texture on that mermaid. She's going to be wonderful!

Robin Spitzer said...

What a wonderful project you are working on! Love the paper dolls!

Thank you for the visit! Hugs Robin #51

Danie May said...

Trisha you always are so organised with your crafting especially when on the go and not in your craft room. I can't wait to receive my ATC from you. It looks like you have a few very dissappointed Aussie WOYWWers too because they have missed out. Perhaps and WOYWW ATC swap is needed. Have a great week! Danie xx

Kim Ferguson said...

I love you idea for sending out ATC around the globe. Have you ever checked out www.postcrossing.com? It is a postcard (handmade or otherwise) mailing website for all over the world. You might give it a go. Kim 38 Thanks for visiting my blog

Deb said...

What a fun idea, so nice that you don't expect to receive any back although knowing our friendly and generous WOYWWers no doubt you will get plenty in return! I am in the US but see people beat me to it!

Becky said...

I like to move around to other areas of the house too :) I've never made an ATC, I think this is great!

RosA said...

Wow, good luck with the around the world ATCs! I was going to offer Australia, but of course, that has already been taken :)
(Always up for an ATC swap though.)
Have a good week,
RosA # 86

Julia Dunnit said...

well, I'm not actually fabulous, but the idea of sending one to me is lovely of you, thanks! Your desk is filled with action and purpose, I like the gelli style papers you're using for the mermaid.

BJ said...

Am loving the mermaid and good luck with your ATC round the world challenge. Thanks for the visit BJ#94

Kim said...

Brilliant idea - thanks for your advice, yep....I should just get on with it! Good luck with your challenge

Happy belated WOYWW

Daniella said...

WOW! ATC's around the world? I know you have a bunch of jobs (store, home schooling, designing and writing, just to name a few) and you are sending ATC's to everywhere around the world? Do you sleep or are you an alien? LOL!!
I don't know how you do it!!
Your ATC's look awesome!!
