April, May, June, July, August....
....and now it's SEPTEMBER! Wow, where has the time gone?? 6 months and no new post - really!
Life has been uber busy these days. For those following me and have visited, disappointed that there was no new post, so sorry. Those who are on Facebook know I am still alive and living life as usual - hectic with drama.
I have still been crafting away, making new friends, and learning new things. I still belong to my favorite groups and try to keep up with all the new swaps. I love them all, but only have so much time.
Life these days consist of a Junior in high school playing soccer - add to the mix new driver and those expenses. A returning college student - should be a junior, but slacked a little and joined the ranks of sophomore - playing baseball on a scholarship. A broken furnace (air conditioner) gotta have that, and my new found weekly habit...BINGO (a great time to spend with Mom - winning makes it much better too)! I also have let my Artfire Shop close due to the new costs associated with selling. I may start a new blog to sell my items if I get to that point and just link the two. Stay tuned for that.
Ok, so you should be all caught up. Onto more interesting stuff - ART!
Still doing swaps with my friends at Red Lead, here are some Vintage ATCs made a month or so back.
This charm was made for our Summer Garden Swap that I hosted in the group. It was made from a vintage necklace that I received from a wonderful lady at our camp up north. She is an antique seller and I had asked her if she could save me any broken jewelry she finds. One day, she sold me a heaping pile of awesome stuff. Although I had to sort through it and smelled like Jean Nate for a week, I found some great pieces. I added a head pin, a seed bead or two and added a plastic leaf. It was so cute.
Last but not least, here is a charm I made from a stamp that was from someone in our group. I used a bottle cap (packaged from Pat Catan's), plastic leaves and sealed with Diamond Glaze.
Now I am sure that I have moved up the ranks of those who have me on their blog visit lists! (Deb) It was tough being at the bottom!
Hope your weekend is full of ART!
Also this weekend, please remember those HEROES of 9/11 and Armed Forces. We are so grateful and will ALWAYS remember.
Thanks for stopping by friends.......CIAO!
