I have been a scrapbooker for many years. I was really heavily involved in the industry when my kids were babies and scrapbooking their lives was of great importance to me. I used to contribute to magazines, work on design teams, and teach scrapbooking classes. As the kids have gotten older, and my life has gotten more and more busy, scrapbooking has kind of been on the side burner. Right as I was sort of "getting out of it" something called ATC's were becoming popular. To my understanding they are baseball size cards you decorate in like an altered art sort of way. You can trade them, swap them, whatever you want! I have some holders and things for them that I got "back in the day.."but this is the first time I have ever made any.
Kimberly at ArtJoyStuff ( her blog here ) posted that she was having a 5 for 5 swap I thought it sounded like fun and that is why I decided to make my first ATC's. So these are going in the mail today and I hope that whoever receives them, likes them! They are surpose to be Valentine themed..and though I am not that traditional about colors and stuff with holidays these represent Valentines day to me!
So, being new at this I hope these are "worthy" of the swap. I think it would be so fun to hang across a ribbon from little clothes pins or something. Fun, cute, little altered art!
I got a new little camera...a few months ago my "purse camera' as I call it, fell out of my purse and shattered the lens. Now I have the new improved version of the camera. I really felt I need it to be able to post things on my blog that I want too. My other camera is HUGE. I love it , but I don't want to have to replace it so I don't like to take it places (if I dropped it, I would not be a happy camper!). This new camera has so many settings, as soon as I learn more about it I'll share it with everybody. I'm really excited about it!
