Happy WOYWW well sorry for those I didn't get back to last week. 
So A little Happy Mail showed up from Pasty we swapped ATC and she was on holidays and sent me 2 beautiful hand painted ATC cards for running late, feeling spoiled I am :) 
So Here is my space it's been tidied up and I made an extra drawer unit to hide my crafty stuff 
and I just like it looking neat and I have a terrible habit of moving stuff around and put stuff I'm not using to much away to see if I can make it work easier. So I'm just popping Patsy's ATC's into my little book with the rest of mine to keep them safe  also on my desk is a Birthday Card from Darnell with that adorable TH birdie on it and one from my sister too. 
The pile of cards is those I'm starting for My DT stuff and they will eventually get done
That's all that is going on at the moment 
Update on my Harvest table It's still being made I've got the top done and part of the legs still need to add in the support bars but it's been raining here a lot and it needs to be sanded and can't do that on wet wood, we've had some wild weather lately and I hope it dries up for a small spell :)
Here is a picture so far
the legs so need to be beefed up and made to look really solid ... not like it needs to be any heavier but it will in the end !!!It's just over 9 feet by roughly 3 feet lots of room 

Hugs Nikki
I'll try to pop around to as many peeps as possible and check out Julia's (link in sidebar) to see what everyone else is doing

Close up of my little space hiding to DT cards I'm working on for upcoming challenges 
So here' my little space this week

Under the Sea

This week we've made it super easy on you all ANYTHING GOES !!! and our sponsor is PPinky Dolls.
Here's what I've done. I've used one of her images and Mirrored on an extra little seahorse to give a little extra going on This is all painted in Watercolours there is something about PPinky images that make me want to use different mediums and not use a pen on them I guess I like them to have a softer effect.

Well it looks like my ATC's arrived from the crop ... Canada post why are you so slow is all !!
To the point your wondering humm did it get lost in the post !!!
It was well worth the wait these are all stunning and it's perfect as this week as my space is all about Art work and these are all masterpieces from the girls across the pond :) thank you all
So from top left to Right 
1st Row
Mary Anne (with her pop up box), Margaret (silvercrafter),Cindy,Zoe,Annie(Wipso) Plus Card,Fiona
2nd Row
Jo (twiglet),Debbie (Tattered Rocks) + huge tag too.,Shaz,Hettie,Helen,
3rd Row
Bluebeard and Elizabeth,Chris(Pearshaped),Eliza,Julia,Rosa

So now for the pull back and I've been painting and pulled out my paints instead of paper crafting 
The DH thinks this is has a feminine feeling to it and he wants something darker for the next one 
and small board on the desk in front with the yellow and whites is a sample board for another Painting that will be much darker and richer colours
Honestly this wasn't what it was going to be on these boards I was think an old looking sign and 
somewhere between the paintbrush and the boards this happened
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it now maybe some details around the edges I just don't know 

thanks for stopping in 
hugs Nikki

 So Here is my space this week it's PRETTY NAKED !!! I must say not much going on other then waiting on the mail man to give me the rest of the ATC's that are stuck in Canada Post which is SLOW!!! My desk isn't that exciting as last week we where working on the house and when that was finished I went out into the backyard through the scrap pile of wood (before it goes into the skip) and found enough to make a patio harvest table 9 foot by 3 feet which will be great. I've done one sanding on the top and just have to wait for some rain free days to get out back and cut the rest and give it a light sanding then put it together. Seal it up and have it out back  The DH is leaving it all to me and enjoying that I'm the one making it but it comes down to I want to have people over and we need somewhere to sit down to enjoy ourselves. 
It's only a pile of wood at the moment and I'll take a picture when I'm done with it and it's all put together :)
Here's my desk
So this is all that has arrived in the post with there little extra's above 
Love how they all are so unique :)

Happy WOYWW 
hugs Nikki 
Also I have a DIGI Freebie HERE

 It's been 6 years of posting our spaces some of us have been here since the 1st year. I joined in roughly a few months after Julia started it and have been hooked since
so here is my space this week and along with all the ATC's I've made to trade and of course the WOYWW 6 buttons for the anniversary your free to use any of my buttons for your blogs and show them off.
1st My Desk this week
Just putting together all my ATC in one place I love to be able to flip through them and this way I won't misplace some :)
 So far this is all that has finally made it's way to me
 Canada Post can make MOLASSES LOOK FAST I SWEAR!!!
seeing this is when I started trading them I don't own many but these are all amazing

The WOYWW 6 Buttons can be picked up at Julia's or at the top of my blog.
There are 6 different types!!

 I wrapped all of my ATC up so everyone gets a surprise and makes it a little fun. That way I didn't know who would get what hope those who get the darker images like em so I also will be out looking for them.
Well I made 27 ATC's in all WOW didn't think I'd make so many but I love to colour and this is a great way to try lots of different colour variations

Here's who I've swapped with (in Bold is who's arrived so far)
I've sent out 12 of these to Julia for the WOYWW crop and I know they are all having a blast there
Then I mailed some all over the place
Australia - Bridget,Sandra De 
USA Robyn 
UK - WOYWW Crop Gals (sent 12 to whom I'm swapping with is a mystery)
 Annie(Wipso)&Jo(Twiglet) ,Angela, Annie ,Mary Anne ,Jill
Swap Buddy is ?? 
All the ATC I've made
LOT 1 
Who doesn't love a zombie lol
 LOT 2 Made an Extra 9 of them (one not finished at time of Photo)

So much fun colouring them all in differently
My fave are the purple and blue hair girls

So I plan on popping in to as many desks as I can 
even if it takes all week 
hugs Nikki

HAPPY WOYWW and only a little more time for the big reveal with all those ATC swaps 
So here is my space this week I'm working on Window number 2 it's smaller then the 1st one but coming along I'll be working on it lots more this week to get it all done and ready put into the spot it belongs. Here is a look down on it 
 Then here is a look Up on my desk the Lamp shade I made ages ago ... I love how they turn out but I honestly like to make windows a lot better.  So everything is stacked out of the way to give be space for my window
So here is the 1st one all done and put up so nice to look at and happy it's done

seeing we are doing all of these updates in our house we've found some really kewl little things in it 
who ever built it had some expensive taste for somethings cause in our sunroom we are in the middle of just updating it alittle when we found this hidden underneath all the boring wood paneling we've never seen this before
This is painted old safety glass with the wire inside it we've cleaned all the peeling paint off it and are going to keep it on one side and have wood paneling on the outside but this must have looked amazing in it's day seeing the house was built in the 1920's the DH is going to add in some molding and trims all around to make it look like it's never been touched.
This is just so kewl to have found 

Happy Wed hugs Nikki
I'll pop around to as many peeps as I can 
and I'll be sharing all the ATC's when it's the big WOYWW# 6
