WOYWW 642 – best mask ever


Happy WOYWW to all. Lordy, lordy I did such a bad job last week of WOYWW visits. For some reason Wednesdays seem to be jammed up with stuff. And then I manage to let it slip my mind until I am not in a place where I can just start my hopping. BAH! This week I have a meeting that was rescheduled from last week, about darling daughter and her transition to adult services. I have shifted my knitting mate to Tuesday so I am hopping it’ll be smooth sailing for the first time in a while. So we begin with messy, as ever.

What a chaotic shot! If yo looked at my post from yesterday, those dapper gents are from the Livbrayr of Congress free-to-use images. Printed on the 170gsm version of the coated cardstock, they work great for coin-toppers. The other bits are from my pile of swap-fodder. I thought as I had done the vintage ladies I would do the vintage gents as a companion set.

Next has to be the tidy shot!

What a difference an hour makes…well a bit more as I have completed the coins in the interim but will save them to add tomorrow, as I have more to show. The ATCS there are a pair I made using a digital stamp from Wonderstrange. I edited out the words on the mask so I could (digitally) add my own. I saw a mask with Schrödinger’s Smile on it and decided it was the best mask ever. It’s on my birthday list cause it is just too perfect! I used that as one of the mask words, and Ceci n’est pas un masque is the other, riffing off Magritte (hence the green apple!)

The background is, of course, a mask, cut up. And there is a lovely tag/card that I got along with one of my ATC swaps. It is so pretty I had to share!

And lastly, the If you HAD to… cards. An odd pair this week

I cannot image it would be tolerable, having a drunk leprechaun in a baby sling (or even a sober one!) on you 24/7 and while I might be tempted to go for the frozen/revived option, I can’t see leaving my family behind. Both options suck. Which is worse? I can’t decide!

Have a great WOYWW day and hopefully I will hit a number of desks early then finish up later!

  1. Many cool ATCs on your pages!

    Thank you for visiting my blog. Appreciate it.
    Hope your weekend is cozy and joyful.

  2. I love those gentlemen-coins, great images! I had to look up ‘Schrodinger’s smile” as I didn’t know that saying, but it’s clear now and I LOVE that on a mask! Thanks for stopping by last week – you were early indeed and now I am late… oh well, I’m here now to wish you a beautiful weekend! Love from Holland, Marit #3

  3. I love the untidy desk! That’s looks like mine most of the time!
    Excellent ATCs – seen them on the next post too!
    Happy WOYWW!
    Stay safe and keep well!
    I am hoping to visit everyone this week – unfortunately last week I just couldn’t make it…

  4. Love both desk views! Great ATCs. And I agree about the leprechaun. Have a great week!

  5. Nope, no freezing for me…coming back to a place I don’t know with abs no friends or relatives… Purgatory; although the leprechaun thing ain’t gold, huh!!
    Fab ATCs, the masks made me laugh, very clever. Love that the Libray of Congress has downloads like that, see the number of things I would not know about if you weren’t a Desker!

  6. Shrodingers’ smile is a genius idea for the mask ATCs, so clever! I like the dapper gents too, I’d have know that was your desk, you’re so good at using vintage images! Hope the meeting went smoothly.

  7. Hi Mary Anne! I love your mask ATCs! So clever! And those dapper gentlemen are wonderful! I don’t think you are the queen of late commenting, I do believe it falls to me. Sometimes it’s Monday before I realize I haven’t done anything and then go through as many as I can very late! I do miss a lot of people, but I do try to at least answer all the commenters. And sometimes I miss it altogether. I think you commented on mine last week, and I didn’t get back to you, so you are first this week! Hopefully this week will be better, as here it is Wednesday and I’m already visiting! Have a great week, I’m looking forward to seeing those dapper gentlemen finished!

  8. Great masks – certainly good to make folks smile when we are out and about wearing them! xx Jo

  9. Hi Mary-Anne, I do love the idea of a Shrodinger’s smile mask. You could also do a Magritte version “Ceci n’est pas un sourire”. Lovely ATCs.
    I don’t fancy either of your ‘What if..’ options. 😏
    Take care and happy WOYWW

  10. Love the mask ATC’s – they made me smile! The dapper gents are great too.
    Hope you have a good week,

  11. A messy desk is a creative desk, Love the use of the masks and the great idea. hope the meeting is a success

    Take care and stay safe

  12. Busy desks always look better than tidy ones to me . . . . sorry!
    Love the mask ATCs, and I would be frozen. One of my regrets is that when my house is sold and the buyer renovates and enlarges . . . I wont be around to see it!!!
    Speak later

  13. It’s always great to see your messy desk first! love the atcs with the masks . Good luck with the meeting. I am having a lazy day today although looking out of the window at another gorgeous day I feel I should be out enjoying it while I can. Happy WOYWW Helen #4

  14. Hi Mary Anne. It makes me so happy to see ATCs being popular again they are such a lovely way to give other people a little part of your lovely art work. Have a very happy and creative woyww, Angela x14x

  15. I love a busy desk! I got distracted with Schrödinger and read quite a bit about the both dead and alive cat. 😳. Hope your meeting goes well Angela #7

  16. Happy WOYWW. You are so clever! I love those mask ATCs. I am also loving the card game (and must get that – would be great for dinner parties with friends). Both options are not truly attractive, but the drunk leprachaun sounds silly, so I would go with that. I wouldn’t want to miss my grandchildren growing up. Ali x #10

  17. Don’t fancy the leprechaun at all so I’d opt for the other and hope that my closest had been given the chance also.
    Good luck with the meeting – ohope you come to a successful conclusion as to what is next.
    Love the atc coins – off to see the Library of Congress.
    Hugs, Neet 6n
    ps was it a Midori Book – I ask in my blog post

  18. Oh I do love those mask ATCs Mary Anne. Hope the meeting goes as you hope. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #2
