Not Quite Idle

Hey y'all!   I know Monday's are supposed to be Art Journal Monday's, but I never got around to filming another video (or even journaling any more) last week!  My 15 month old daughter was definitely having a "Mommy I want to be RIGHTHEREWITHYOU" kind of week.

Even though I haven't managed a video of any sorts, it totally doesn't mean I've been idle!  In fact, while at work this weekend, I was extremely busy being creative...

Project One: 

Sending out 2 ATCs I'm trading with a couple of wonderful folks:

Two out of these five ATCs I made at work the weekend before last are traded.
I had to make the envelopes pretty!

That was Project 1.  I can't wait to make and trade some more ATCs!

Project Two:

Making lots and lots of ATCs for a Summer-themed ATC swap I've been invited to join!

Being Artsy and Creative while at work is one of my favorite things!

I have lots and lots of ATCs to make!  I've also joined another Swap!  That one will be ABC themed!

I see ATC videos in the future!

Project Three:

The altering of a chipboard mustache picked up from Hobby Lobby for Hubby's Father's Day present.  It will be altered still further because he wants to use it as a hat rack!

I gesso'd the snot out of this mustache before painting on it.  Then used Dylusions Ink Sprays, Distress Inks, Stamps, Ranger Archival Ink, Molding Paste, stencils, more gesso, and acrylic paint.

It was a whole lot of fun to make and I love how it turned out.  So did he!

And on another exciting note...
I received the first of my 2 ATC trades in the mail today!!

Thank you so much Sarah for trading with me.  I absolutely love, adore, and am thrilled with all the goodies, plus the beautiful ATC!

The ATC she made is that beautiful Orange Bird in the middle!  I just LOVE IT!

See y'all - even though I've been quiet, I haven't been twiddling my thumbs!  I'll be back again very soon with new videos and posts. 

I also really need to work on posting more often.  Sorry about that!  I promise to do better!
