WOYWW 4th Anniversary

With thanks to Julia and Nikki
 Happy fourth anniversary to Julia
and all participating in
 What's On Your Work desk Wednesday.

To celebrate this special occasion
the wonderful Julia is doing an ATC swap 
and try as I might, I haven't quite finished my ATC.
I've had to keep going out
and I'm trying something new, using spray inks,
so it took longer than I thought.

After many boo boos, I've managed to get three
ATCs to almost finished and if it wasn't so cold
right now, the paint would have dried and I would be finished.

So, to the person next in line after me, your poor thing, I will finish it today
or tomorrow at the latest.

 Here's the part of my desk with the boo boos on.
I kinda got carried away with the ink spray and it went 
to smodge.

Here are the ATC's, they aren't finished and
 I don't even know which I will send yet, depends which looks okay.

  Here is the other side of my desk with my cute 
little white laptop sitting with it's big brother.

Before I joined WOYWW I used only paint to make a picture
but seeing all the fun things that fellow WOYWWers
use has given me so much more to play with.
I now have quite a few stamps,  a couple of stamp pads,
some spray inks and gloopy stuff that makes things stand out
on the canvas.  

I might not be proficient in them yet but boy do I have fun learning.

I'm keeping it short and sweet,
so now hop on over to 
and see what is on everyone elses
4th anniversary desk.
I'm hoping to start posting more than once per week now
and so I will add links to what I've posted each week.
Feel free to have a look: 


  1. Hi VonnyK, the ATCs look fine to me and it's I who will be receiving one if I've worked it out correctly lol.

  2. Happy WOYWW, the atc's look just fine!! Have a great day. Helen 39

  3. Your desk looks great, as do your ATCs. I love that the desks you've seen have inspired you, because that's one of the highlights of WOYWW for me, seeing all the ways people create.

    Happy anniversary,
    Love Rachel, #48

  4. Oh we love the word smodge, Podgy may have to take that and pretend he invented it. Your ATCs look good.

    Waving hi from the bears @#101 so far

  5. The ATC's look lovely!! I had no idea you were in Brisbane! It's amazing the stuff you end up getting because you saw someone else using it!! LOL We all enable each other.. its what makes it so fun. Happy 4th WOYWW Anniversary! Annette #2

  6. Love that beaker at the end of your post.
    Also that lady standing on a printer(?) above your white lap top. Great to see a desk full of painty things.
    Thanks for visiting me earlier and a Happy WOYWW 4th Birthday.
    Hugs, Neet xx 1

  7. Ah, the colour in those ATCs....just gorgeous! That tealy bluey green just grabs my attention anytime...maybe it's because I grew up by the sea?? And my ATC is very simple, embarrassingly so. I don't know how to do layers and complicated stuff so it was just a couple of stamps and ink! We shall see.....
    Anyway, thanks for being such a fab commenter and supporter over the year..I really do appreciate it!
    Happy 4th WOYWW!
    Hugs, LLJ 9 xx

  8. It's great to see you back in the thick of things again Von,
    Your desk looks action packed and raring to go...
    I love the colour on the ATC's! It's looks such an Aussie colour to me.
    Have fun with the swap and Happy 4th WOYWW!
    Enjoy :D

  9. Aaahhh.. spray ink! I love that stuff! Good luck finishing the ATCs, they look fabulous already, really they do! Happy woyww anniversary and a hug from Holland. Marit #88

  10. Your ATCs look just fine to me! Fabulous colours! How are you liking those Dylusions sprays?
    Happy 4th Anniversary WOYWW!

  11. Hi Vonnyk
    your ATC cards look great and I am sure the paint will soon dry.
    My daughter would love your Dr Who mug
    Wishing you and everyone a Very Happy WOYWW today

  12. It’s amazing that the internet can bring together so many likeminded people and I’m grateful that WOYWW has also brought along so many new friends, thanks to Julia.

    Great desk this week Vonny. The ATC’s are looking great too, I love the colour.

    Enjoy your Wednesday snooping on this very special Day
    Happy Crafting!

  13. I was expecting to see a hideous mess but they look great!
    Not in to Dr Who but that mug is cool!!
    Happy WOYWW

  14. Love the lap top combo, and yes, it's addicting to get involved with all the inky goodies that are out there! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  15. The ATC's look fab to me. Love that you've joined the inky, stampy community!! Happy 4th WOYWW. Pam#33

  16. Gorgeous looking desk and lovely ATCs. I am supposed to be sending mine to you so can you e-mail me at carostaton at gmail dot com with your address. Thanks for sharing. Have a very happy 4th WOYWW birthday. Caro x (#67)

  17. When I saw your name on the list, I knew we could count on something bright and cheerful - those ATCs are delicious already! I think we do influence each other quite a lot, and over these four years I bet we can all pick out one or two names that we've actually noticed have sort of 'branched out' from their original desk work!

  18. Busy lady! Love the color and what I could see of the ATCs. It is always fun to see other people's work desks, but I have never joined that group. Well, not yet, anyways. ;)

  19. Happy 4th ...I envy your ability to paint and so glad you found a way to have even more fun...this amazing group of friends/family have so much to give each other ... from all corners of the world. I love it ...even when my inspiration goes walk about.
    My son would kill for that mug ....his wedding cake had a Tardis on top. xx71

  20. For 4 years now i've been dropping by,
    To view some desks and see what I can spy,
    Will it be a card, some stash or ATC,
    whatever it is, thanks for sharing it,
    Have a Happy WOYWW 4th Anniversary

  21. I think your ATCs will be lovely colourful little items! Worry not! Happy WOYWW4 x Jo

  22. Great looking atc's I think the humidity around here is keeping things from drying quickly so I have been using the Tim Holtz Heat tool to help them out. Thanks for sharing. Happy 4th Anniversary WOYWW! HOpe you have a great week. Vickie #14

  23. Hi Vonny - I am glad you are enjoying the creativity of WOYWW - I have only been around for 4 weeks and it is amazing whats out there - I am slowly getting to visit everyone this week - Happy 4th WOYWW Birthday... Mxx #137

  24. Hi Vonny,

    Isn't that what sharing our desks is all about! Seeing new and different things that we might would like to try. Since I work full time I go to spurts about how frequently I post. I should do some mid-year evaluations (instead of New Year resolutions) and see what I can improve on.

    Your ATC looks very nice - I can see the coffee cup as so amny of us seem to show ours on our desks!

    Thanks for visiting me already! I came back from Phoenix and had some appointments so am just now getting around. Better late than never!

    Happy WOYWW

Thanks, Von.
