will he kill me?


I added a couple of new things to my Etsy shop tonight. Included is this little bundle of tags using repro butterfly images from vintage thread ads and pieces of an old ledger. I am loving the old ledger pages and beautiful handwriting on them. What ever happened to neat penmenship? Did the computers take over??

I also finished up my "crowned heads" ATCs for the swap that Lelainia is hosting. I can't believe I actually finished something AHEAD of the deadline!! Of course I am totally behind on my Pink & Orange page for Joleen's fat book project but I am going to try to pull it off in time to meet the deadline since I do have an idea brewing. Anyway, I was pulling images from my little file of images to finish up the last few ATCs and I did this ATC.

The thing is.. its my brother. Do you think he will kill me now that this photo is out for everyone to see? I guess its a good thing he doesn't read my blog. LOL I also did these..

I don't know if I am all too thrilled with the whole batch. I seem to be really struggling with the tiny format after working bigger lately. Nevertheless, they are done and will be winging their way to Canada soon.

Its still hot as heck here. We are hoping for a few days break from the heat at least, rolling blackouts are occuring but fortunately we haven't been affected. I am already looking forward to my neice's 3rd birthday {POOL} party on Saturday! Keep cool!

  8. Beautiful work! I wish I had the time to join swaps but I always find myself getting too overwhelmed by them. I know what you mean about penmanship...people have forgotten the art of writing it seems...i still try to write letters to friends as much as possible, there is something magical about getting a handwritten note in the mail :)
