Many days have been spent busy with life and not the computer.  I am a homeschooling mother of 4 that often finds the days fly by.  I spend my evenings and periodic chances through the day working on projects I enjoy.  So in my absence on the blog, I have completed many things.  Here are a few to share.

Log Cabin Mini-Quilt




One Tiny Ice Cream

 More to come soon!

I recently found a new site that can be slightly addicting if allowed. Swap-Bot is a place for all kinds to enjoy sharing whatever interests them. I personally have fallen into the category of Avid Artist Trading Card Swapper. I love these little things!

Using up scraps from card-making (and I often have a lot), I can put together miniature pieces of art that will be shipped all over the globe for others to enjoy and in response I get their lovely little masterpieces to collect and enjoy myself. What fun!
Above you can see a photo of a Floral ATC I shipped to Northern Ireland. I crocheted the flowers for the front of this mini-card and even created a little envelope for it. (I made a second at the same time to send to my sister, for fun). The ATC below is a paper-pieced bird based on my swap partners profile stating that she likes birds and birdhouses and the colors light blue and yellow. (I also made duplicates of this for card fronts that will appear in my shop soon.)

Looking forward to the next little treasure that will appear in my mailbox!

I recently hosted an ATC swap and enjoyed the cards I received, so I thought I’d share a few of them.  These two were created by Erin Rockafellow and Landa Cartwright.  The swap was about choosing a technique to share.  Erin’s card demonstrates heat embossing (on her alligator) and Landa’s shows the scored grid technique.  I’ll share some more tomorrow.

(No specs on these since they were created by someone other than myself =)
