Summer Artventures Continue!

These art packs started off looking like this but in the end they were filled with a lot more fun stuff. Soul, Bea and Teri will be very surprised to say the least.

In addition to making art packs and art for swaps, I've been trying to organize my paper rack. I have a long way to go but this is a start. It's fun to see what I have now that it's out in the open.

The ABC ATC swap I'm in is featuring the letter "F" this week and I couldn't think of a better subject than Frida.

With extra time on my hands I jumped over to the next letter in the ABC swap. The letter is "G" and "G" is for Grungy Gritty Ghost Girls. I'm thinking about adding a couple more elements to this card but this is it for now. I like the girl's transparent appearance.

I included a short story on the back. I felt an explanation was in order for these girls. Click on the image to read it.

I'll be heading out to the post office tomorrow to mail out some fun stuff to 3 bloggers. I said I was mailing something in particular and by the time I finished, there was also this, that and more! Way more.

It's nice to have some time off from work. I get to sleep in a little later. I don't have to dress up. I can finally work on trying to organize my "stuff" without looking at the clock because, hey, I don't have to get enough sleep before I go to work! And I get to play and work on my art projects for summer swaps - all day if I want to. Yes, I love being home. My money may be funny but I'm having too much fun to miss it.

BT, the "girls" are on their way to London. There'll be one on it's way to Ireland in another week! I better put my thinking cap on. The letter "I" is going to be a challenge.

BT said...

Oh good, Linda. I had that trouble with 'i' then Jim suggested 'incomplete' which I have done, as you've seen.
