Alice in Wonderland trio of ATCs

One of the Yahoo groups I'm in had an ATC swap with the brief being 'Mixed media set of 3'. At the time I had minimal supplies to hand and was working on the kitchen table - that brought back memories of when I first started crafting; boy am I glad I don't have to do that these days! I found my old Alice book and AIW stamps, grabbed some gelli prints from the huge stash I seem to have accumulated and some washi tape and got going. This is the result:

I was really pleased with how they turned out in the end and was sad to part with them, but the recipient liked them which is the main thing.

Here I am, at last .......

We were away for the whole of January, visiting our daughter in Australia, so no crafting was done over that time. When we came home I decided to empty my craft room totally and redecorate. Hubby laid a new floor (getting rid of the rather smelly carpet we'd inherited with the house), I nabbed DS's desk that we'd been storing in the garage and hubby re-jigged the shelving. I got rid of SO much stuff - I can't believe I had so much total rubbish in there (well actually, I wasn't really that surprised!). So my room looked like this for a while - tidy!:

Of course it's not this tidy now! I'm now back in 'making a mess' mode; that has to happen if masterpieces are going to be created - right?!
