It has been a very busy and eventful week for me so much so that I almost missed out posting on WOYWW! I have been finishing up making 12 of the journal pages I posted a picture of last week and got them mailed off to Mississippi where the swap hostess lives. I have been making 7 ATC's for a swap on OWSE that I participate in each week. I also made a couple cards but I can't show them till I give them to the people I made them for. If you would like to participate in WOYWW visit Julias blog to get the deets. Be warned it is very addictive.
Okay here is what it is all about...here is a picture of my desk that I took today after I finished making the ATC's and had lined them up to dry before I put the info sticker on the back. I have made them all alike again this month because I get really anxious when I think I have to come up with 6 or 12 different things so I tend to do the same thing and not worry.
The theme for this month was green and yellow so I used a yellowish based card stock and embossed it with a Tim Holtz ATC folder. I think they are called texture trades. I then distressed around the edges and on the embossed image I then added some Liquid Pearls, a sentiment, and ribbon. I like the simpler look to ATC's.
The baby birds are gone so I don't have a picture this week. I have to confess that I am the cause they are gone...and I am hoping I am not the cause of their demise. I went to take one last picture on Friday cause I knew it wouldn't be long till they flew the nest and I almost fell. Unfortunately my balance really sucks due to my disorder and when I went to fall I grabbed for the wind chime to the right of the hanging basket to keep from falling and I startled them all. All four flew out of the basket and over the fence and yard. I tried to catch them but when I would get close they would fly off. I am hoping they are okay. I learned a valuable lesson. I told my daughter I loved to watch them grown and now I feel like a baby bird killer. I cried for hours after the incident.
I didn't make it around to everyone's blog last week so I am going to persevere this week and visit everyone. Hope everyone has a great week and I will try to get posted earlier next week.
