Nothing exciting today.
I kinda’ like days like that, don’t you?
But I have been organizing and cleaning out a lot of stuff which I feel good about.
Inevitably, that means finding some “treasures” from the past. Crafts I have long since abandoned and then when I find them I realize how much I used to enjoy doing them, creating them, editing, them, painting them, etc.
Are you like that?
I don’t know how many of you have heard of ATC’s, Artist Trading Cards. I used to belong to various groups that exchanged these with each other. In short, they are little pieces of art and there a number of sites that one can sign up for to exchange cards with other members. They all have to be an ATC size which I believe is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. There are themes published (sometimes a color, sometimes a subject, etc.) and one picks a theme and usually designs whatever number cards are required and then sends them out. In return, the same number is sent back in exchange.
So as is my usual modes Operandi, I took it a step further. For a few Christmas’s (a number of years ago) I designed a set for my daughter and a friend. I included various inspirational sayings. I think I gave them enough for about three months. They love them and still use them.
However, I kept some for myself in case I want to pursue this again in the future. These are a few of my favorite. They represent various techniques, collage, Sculpy, paint, and stamping
And a total aside. Don’t you just love this table? I am so-o-o-o-o making this. Find it on Houzz. You can tell I’m in one those moods right? Where I have a lot of projects I want to get started. It must be getting close to spring.
Anyway, God bless each of you today and I hope it’s a really good day for you.
