Anyway, this conversation is now indeed waffling, sorry, but am excited that people actually dooooo read my blog! It has also been a very wide window to new friendships and to new ways of doing things, so that in itself has made this whole blogging business worthwhile soooo many times over!
Thanks to you all for you friendships, your inspiration and your kind comments. I enjoy your feedback , your ideas and your blogs immensely.
I had to share with you these 2 purchases. Above are some little blocks I discovered the other day while out shopping. They are smaller than dominoe blocks and each one has holes drilled in it. I did see a sample of them used in a bracelet, collaged, painted and strung together using a type of elastic. Looked very interesting. Just had to buy some which I will put away for future use! (hahaha, you know what I mean!!)
Below is a tin which I found which I would like to decorate to keep my TWO ATC's in. But I've never decorated tin before. Does anyone have any hints, tips or advice to share on how to or where to start on this project? I thought it might need sanding first before painting?
Cat in Tassie - wouldn't it be so nice if we could get some of the yummy stuff that Tim Holtz uses???
debbi baker who left a lovely comment and Nicki, welcome to my blog, hope you are all lucky enough to win an ATC.
tracyb, thanks for your comment too. I do agree with you about the trades, and that sometimes you spend a long time on making a project only to receive a swap which looks like it was made with little thought or effort. Sometimes It can take me several weeks to finish a project, I start it and have to put it somewhere where I can revisit it everyday! I do believe there are ATC swap groups where you post a pic of your cards and so you get to choose who and what you are swapping for. This is a cool idea! There are certainly so many swap groups that there is sure to be the right one for everybody, it's just a matter of finding it!
Enjoy your week,
