About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my little arty world! Trying to make art is a huge part of my life ... love nothing more than messing around with inks and sprays and generally making a mess!

 Another amazing anniversary reached for our much loved Julia - Head Desker over at  The Stamping Ground

Another chance to celebrate the network of support and friendship she has fostered along with a bit of arty-crafty stuff thrown in for good measure

I have to admit I am not the best WOYWW'er amongst us - really no excuses other than dreadfully poor time management and still struggling with the "new" blogger but, being determined to join in the anniversary of Julia's inspired idea all those years ago, here I am!

So to my desk - awfully boring as I cleared away after making the ATC's and am now ready to tackle a new project tomorrow ... or the next day ... or whenever.  Either way my desk will soon disappear amidst the chaos in which I seem to work!

The clock on the wall pretty much gives it away - that I took the photos at 4.30pm yesterday.  The sun was shining and it seemed to be a sign.  

Forgive there being two photos ... I could have taken one of those long, panoramic shot thingies but that would mean knowing how to take one of those long, panoramic shot thingies ... which I don't  (& had no inclination to try and figure it out)

The observnnt amongst you will notice the two white trolleys holding my sprays have disappeared from the second photo ... they are only pushed out of sight in order to make for a better photo - afraid I couldn't be bothered to remove them and then retake the first photo ... but you will get the idea
So - to the main purpose of this blog 
and to thank, again, Julia, for bringing some very special people into my life 
I have my ATC ready to send to my "official" recipient and I have three spare so if you'd like one just shout up



  1. Hi Debbie!! I am your PIF partner yay!! I'll message you on FB for your address as I can't see emails from my phone and I'll be off to work soon, and can then get the atc off to you. Your display walls look amazing. Happy Anniversary!! Helen #11

  2. Hi Debbie
    I can't stop looking at that amazing wall with the clock, brilliant, did you make all the pieces, apart from the clock? I am intrigued by the spanners on your mat, do they have a special purpose?
    Happy WOYWW anniversary and bless you for sharing

  3. Your art wall looks wonderful, Debbie! So many amazing projects in one place! I've spotted a few of your posts in the Finnabair group - they're all out of this world! Happy anniversary! xx zsuzsa #17

  4. Debbie, I would love to swap with you if you don't mind swapping with me, if you do I fully understand after you read my blog.
    I cannot get over that wall in your first picture - those violins for a start. How absolutely wonderful. I wish I lived close enough to visit and have a real good nosey around - you live in Wonderland.
    I am going to be spending more time than i should just gazing at your two photographs and marvelling at what you have on display. Wowser
    Hugs and Happy Anniversary, lovely you have joined in.
    Hugs, Neet 1 xx

  5. Your art always makes me smile. I adore your moons and the violins. You have such a beautiful place in which to craft. I'm truly in awe. Happy 12th Anniversary from # 10.

  6. Wow that wall of art is stunning - what amazing pieces you have and I love how they all look so good collectively too. I would love to swap an ATC with you, but undertand your 3 spare may well be spoken for now - if not then please let me know and we exchange details.
    Happy 12 Anniversary,
    Diana xx #18

  7. Lovely to see you my dear - what beautiful art work you have on display. Yu don't give it all away then? Happy anniversary, love n hugs Cindy #17 xx

  8. What fabulous artworks you have on your wall?! Absolutely stunning. Love the big spanners too but not sure if they are paperweights or waiting to be altered. Anyway, happy anniversary! Lisa-Jane, #2

  9. I love, love, love your crafting space with all your gorgeous artwork on display - absolutely stunning. I am so excited that I will be a recipient of one of your ATCs... I still love my special pieces of art from you. One is sat to the left of my desk on the shelves and the other to the right by my desk lamp. Happy 12th WOYWW Anniversary. Take care and stay safe. With love & God Bless, Caro xxx (#15)

  12. Hi Debbie. How lovely to see you today. I have to say I just LOVE your walls of art! And just look at those two violins!!! brilliant. I confess to being most intrigued by the two spanners... awaiting work in the house? Or the next project?
    Take care. God bless.

  15. Hi Debbie - nice to meet you - and what a glorious crafting space you have - I am so far still not getting any crafty stuff done - but its nice to see others are. See you at next WOYWW Cheers Maurs xxx #26

  16. Thank you for sharing your beautiful creative space and the walls covered with the most astonishing art work!! I just love those altered violins... Just wonderful!

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  17. Hi Debbie sorry for the late visit. Happy 12th anniversary. I'm not the best WOYWWer either. I do have all good intentions, and then something throws a spanner in the works. It's not quite as large as the spanner on your desk - wow, that is huge! Are you going to decorate it? The main hung is, as Julia says, we take part when we can. I love the violins and the rest of your artwork. I do enjoy seeing what people create in their crafty spaces, especially such creative ones as yourself. Have a lovely week, Heather xx #20

  18. Happy WOYWW 12th ANNIVERSARY! and, sorry I'm late! But I was here, honest! Nearly every blog I've visited twice, which made me late! I know I said I loved your wall of clocks and loved the two moons and wished I had space to put something up in my craft room like that.... (then maybe I would never be late!) Hope you have a great crafty week. Stay Safe. ((Lyn)) #5
    PS I know I've definitely pressed publish this time!!
