Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Private ATC Swap

   A few weeks ago I was having a lot of problems with mobility issues and couldn't do stairs. I got bored sitting around watching TV and I went on the group list of a Yahoo ATC group that I belonged to and asked if anyone wanted to play with me. I said there would be no theme and I called the swap "Anything Goes". I had three takers so I got busy making my cards.

THESE ARE THE ATC'S THAT I MADE




   I had paper and a pencil with an eraser, and my DH had brought home from work a box of Crayola watercolors that he found on the floor in a hallway. I was set. I decided to paint whimsical animals. I didn't have any pictures to follow so I pulled these from my head. I guess these show how my mind works. LOL! Trust me even if I had had a picture to work from most likely they still would have turned out the same.

THESE ARE THE ATC'S I RECEIVED IN THE SWAP



Lucie Horowitz

   There were two others that joined the swap but they never sent cards. I was a bit disappointed but none the less I was thrilled with these beautiful ATC's from Lucie. She does such beautiful work it is always such a pleasure to receive one of her cards...but three at one time. I was overjoyed. Thank you Lucie!

Take Care

  1. Love your cards. I like the birds best.
    Do you create on large sizes or just ATCs?

  2. Most watercolors that I do are larger but none larger than 8"X10". I find it hard to do ATC size watercolors.
