Show and Tell


Another story of WOYWW. If you're a reader but not a WOYWWer, you probably wish I'd get over it.  Sheesh, it was just another day, anniversary or not.  Yeah.  You're right.  It was just another day, and I'm over that.  I'm so not going to get over the swap.  Fun, creativity and friendship from everywhere, and that also means generosity. Just look:


                                                

Not just a lot of work, time and materials, but postage too and it all makes for a vivid  collection of art that makes me smile. These are the ATCs I received as a result of the swap.  You will be unsurprised to know that I need to make more!  But also....shh. I really quite enjoyed making the first bunch, so am kinda looking forward to getting back into the routine of procrastinating and whining on my blog about getting nothing done.  Standby.  I thank you.

Love the fabby ATC's Julia, When the 3rd anniv swap was on I hadn't a clue as to what ATC's were - now I wish I had investigated them earlier so I could have taken part in it.
Oh well, next time I guess lol.
Cheers,

Spotted mine in that vast collection. It was a brilliant swap and in celebration of another brill idea. Know what you mean about postage - cost me a (small) bomb, but worth every penny and I now have a lovely collection on mini art.

Whimcees said...

So glad you have been receiving little gifts from all over the world. After all, you sent those of us who asked, a little badge in the post, so it only seems fair that you are spoilt in return!
