ATC Letter #6

Fortunately, fantastic, funny F.

F is also for fog of which we had an overabundance this morning. We couldn't even see from the front of the house to the divider line in the middle of the street - less than 30 feet. It was quite fortunate the boys could walk to school, as the busses weren't forging through the fog.

ATC Letter #1

#456 Letter A
A and A ATC's begin the alphabet. I wonder how far through the alphabet I will be able to go before becoming distracted or if I will make it to Z. I have doodled two of each letter because I don't usually like the one I have just finished; later, sometimes I like one or the other much better, sometimes the first and sometimes the second...

Have an awesome, adventurous, amazing day!

Happy Mail Rec'd Jan 2016!

Happy Mail, YAY!

We received some happy mail from our son and his girlfriend today. It is very exciting. She is an architect/artist and has started my son painting. He is having a blast.

They sent artwork, stickers, their business card for a show, a postcard for one of their shows, and a precision glue bottle (which will be perfect for gluing tiny things). Lots of fun things to look at and some are a tactile experience.

Have a lovely day!


ATC Flower #40

#452 Flower Large
#455 Flower Large
Some new flowers filling up two ATCs. I have found a couple of old type and lettering books online and have been perusing them for shapes, patterns, and inspirations. It is rather a fun occupation, but in the short run, not particularly productive. Research always seems to be that way - non-productive unless its used to create something new or reproduce  something. Just musing... 'cause I actually should get something productive done, like the dishes or laundry.

Have a wonderful day!

ATC Titles #4

450 Hello
Even though drew #451 on January 1, I am a bit late in posting it. Hopefully you will enjoy it anyway. #450 Hello was the last ATC I did in 2015. Matching the ATC Hello with a card or element that has 2016 on it has been in my thoughts for a layout. It will also be fun to put into Happy Mail.

Have a great day!
