I'm lucky enough to have a craft shop/warehouse near to me. 
They hold craft demo's one a month & they have just decided to set aside a table  for atc, so people can bring in some their atc's  to swap.
They have set a theme for every month. February's theme is Anything Goes.
So here are a few i've made ready to start swapping tomorrow.
The first ATC i made using an old Paperartsy stamp & the distress ink used is Spun Sugar to add just a little colour. I really wanted to add a needle put don't want anyone hurting themselves so i just added a safety pin instead.
 The next two I've used some paper mania paper for my back ground & the stamps used are Tim Holtzs . Distress ink used was Span sugar & Crushed Olive.
I've made two of these as one is for someone on Ukscrappers to swap with.
 My last one I've used distress ink , Fried Brick, Crushed Olive & Spun sugar to add colour to my atc & the stamp used is another from Tim Holtzs.

Scrapbook Layouts,

About this time each year now i do a double page lay out of the Christmas we've just had.
These go into my Christmas scrapbook album.
We were lucky enough to spend Christmas in Florida so here are the double page layout remembering this trip.
The spotted paper is by DCWV as well as the journalling tag.
Once the photo's & embellishments were in place & stuck down , i then put a vintage Christmas acetate sheet over the top .
To hold the acetate in place I've used a couple of Christmas brads because i couldn't use glue to stick it down.

On my desk this morning i have a long the top are my whisper pens in their holder  , A bag of Christmas ribbons, inks, & a K&Co paper pad which is open at the paper I'm going to use.
I have also my 2013 year Album that i finished yesterday.
It's a Bo Bunny Misc Me life  Journal album. The one thing i don't like about these albums is that on the spine  it actually say's Bo bunny misc me life journal so that need to be covered .
Well it now time to hop over to Julia's place to join in with what's on your work desk Wednesday,

A belated new year.
We spent Christmas & New Year to Florida & had a fabulous time.
Most of my shopping was done in Michaels , Jo-anns & Hobby Lobby getting some craft supplies. 
Just got to find a home for it all.
Sorry the picture isn't better it's the best i could do this morning. I'm blaming it on the cold I've now got since our return.

Way am i showing you my desk on this Wednesday morning ?  Hop over to Julia's with me & find out more,
