I have been making Atc's for a year now!







They were the start of all this crazy art stuff! I went back through some pictures and found some of the first ones I made for Easter and Spring. It is amazing how you change styles and develop different tastes. I always have loved collage, so I think the thing that has remained the same, is my art work is never flat. I like little pieces of this and that on it. I also started right out by sewing on them. I like the texture that seams add. It is hard to believe that I have been trading and making cards for a year along with making new friends. I have evolved to 4x4's and altered books, crazy dolls and quilties and fabric charms and who knows what yet is to come but I have loved every second and will continue to create along with my scrapbooking and my quilting because it gives me joy and that is reason enough to do anything!

I'm so glad you started doing ATCs, otherwise I probably never would have met ya! Love your work! I have a big sign taped to the lamp on my desk, art every day. I think that was your idea, and what a great idea!
