Time For Me

Sometimes things just fall into place unexpectedly. DH had to go pick up DD #1 and decided to let DD #2 tag a long. Little thing right? They ended up going to play miniature golf and going to the mall, eating out and shopping. 7 hours to myself! Can you believe it?! I can't. I cleaned the floor in my art room (yes, there were piles there too) and my main desk and pretended there weren't any other messes and set down and finished some ATCs I started last night at a crop.

The ATCs are for a lovely 'Children W/Party hats' swap run by the hugely talented Audrey on SmallCreations.

Had a wonderful time last night. Chipotles for dinner, 'Arting' with Friends AND being in a scrapbook store. It can't get much better than that!

Made a few simple ATCs last week using up backgrounds from my background ATC swap at ArtByMoonlight. I think they came out okay.

Oh, realized I hadn't posted my collage piece I did at moms house while on vacation. It's a bit weird and I think I got carried away, but not sure how I could have fixed it! ha Oh well. Live and learn.

We had our book club meeting last week and discussed all the poignant parts of Watership Down. The house was decorated with bunnies and we had Carrot Cake for dessert. Fun times. Now we're reading the UNABRIDGED version of The Count of Monte Cristo, about 1400 pages! Who is with me? Leave me your comments if you've read the book.

hey where is all the art...the atc's and your collage piece...i wanna see :o)

Kris, I have two browsers...IE and Firefox. Blogger wasn't working for me through IE so I opened up Firefox and it worked just fine in uploading pics. Maybe that will help.

Hey Kris...those party hat atc's are too cool...can't wait to see them up close and personal. Your collage is made everything look so good together and more great colors.

OMG, Kris...your ATC's for the "Children's Hat" swap are absolutely ADORABLE! All of the ones that I've seen so far have been wonderful, but these are definitely a "head" above the rest! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the way that you extended the hats off of the ATC!!! Brilliant!! I hope that I'm blessed with receiving one of these beauties!! You have truly done an outstanding job!

This is my second time visiting your blog. I stopped by to tell you I LOVE the ATC's you made for Audrey's swap! Lovely, your use of color and the whimsy of the children's hats made me smile! What wonderful little pieces of art!
