Wednesday can only mean one thing-showing our desks across the globe.
I haven't had much time recently but on my desk (hidden underneath my travel journal kit and crop a dile) are my ATC's for the WOYWW anniversary swap.  To make my life a little easier I have decided NOT to make many this year and am only doing 6. 
 They are not finished but at least I have made a start!

My crop a dile is being used to made holes in my belt.  Over the past 18 months I have lost quite a lot of weight and this is a decent belt so I thought I would add some holes rather than buy a new one. Also my trusty travel journal is out as I often take it with my on my daily walks to sketch or even just to capture pattern I spot along the walk.

My 'Man Bites Dog' cards are "Crazy General Lost Thousands Blames Drugs".

Happy crafting


  1. I love my crop a dile for making holes in belts! I do it on handbag shoulder straps too. Love the sneak peak at your atcs. I've finally started too, but only 2! Helen #?

  2. ONe of my favourite tools that I go to as well.

  3. Very kewl and I agree when you love a belt add an extra hole to keep it hugs Nikki 7

  4. OOOH I wish I had a belt that needed taking in!!Sigh!!I HAVE lost 4 kilos since Xmas...slow, but steady!Love that you're taking your book to journal and sketch in.We can miss so much just blundering along.I know I do. Taking a book makes me look much more attentively.There's always something interesting going on .

  5. I should borrow a crop-a-dile to do Mr LLJ's belt as he's lost a load of weight too! Maybe in a few months for me, eh?!
    I made a few ATCs at Julia's yesterday, no thought process, just went for it!
    Hugs, LLJ 2 xx

  6. Well done on the ATC start... trust you will get them all finished in time.
    Take care. God bless.

  7. Well done on the weight loss and making use of the belt with more holes. Wish my diet was as fruitful. Happy WOYWW BJ#26

  8. Congratulations on your progress with ATCs, and of course your belt amendments! Happy crafting, Max #29 :-)

  9. I do love a multi purpose tool and getting extra use out of something by fixing/altering it myself. You've done fantastically well with your weight loss and I hope you feel very proud x

  10. The Crop-a-dile is a wonderful tool which I have had for a long time and it is practical not just for crafting! You hiding the ATCs? I showed mine - maybe I shouldn't have!
    Lots of hugs,

  11. Hi Kyla, I really must get my ATC's done, last minute as usual! Nice to have a mooch about on your desk. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #11 xxx

  12. Congrats on your weight loss. What a great use for your crop-a-dile. I'd never thought of using it for that. Good idea to keep your travel journal close. You see such wonderful things on walks. I document them with my camera. I just have to get around to printing off the photos.

    Happy WOYWW

  13. How nice that you need to tighten your belt - good for you!! Those are fun cards. Happy WOYWW! Susanne #48

  14. Well done for losing weight! Yes, I have a Cropodile as well but it did not come is such a nice box. Mine stands upright in the book case where I can pick it up as and when. We use it for all sorts of things, including holes in belts.It is a handy tool indeed.

    Happy WOYWW,

  15. Congrats on losing weight...I think I've found yours and several other peoples! Oh well..I've made a new start this week, hopefully I will be successful like you!
    Have a great day.

  16. Great job on losing weight. I'm working on that now, but not having a lot of luck. Great peak at your ATCs. Happy Wednesday, LisaDV 41

  17. Wish I could put holes at that end of my belt - I need them going the other way!! Your desk looks so lovely and busy. Have a great week xx

  18. Hi Kyla, thanks for the visit to mine. I'm still on catch-up this week. I have often wondered what those cards are for, "Man Bites Dog" not sure what you do with them. Have a great week and belated WOYWW, Angela 23

    1. They are a card game. You can buy them in toy shops but I bought mine in a charity shop. No idea how you play the game as mine weren't boxed so I just randomly draw cards to see what they make.
