I seldom make "to do" lists but since I'm planning on having a carefree summer I thought it would be fun to put one together. I'm keeping it easy so that I can follow through. Yes, nothing but "HOT FUN in the summertime....." Stop me with the summer songs already!
This is an ATC from the ABC ATC around the world swap I'm in. This represents the letter "E" and it's titled, "Empress of Eclectic Elephants." Would you look at that guy standing next to her. He seems to be saying "Hot fun summer in the city, back of my neck gettin' dirty and gritty..." I can't help myself with these summer songs! It goes to show I'm ready to "roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer...." Did I even get those adjectives in the correct order? OK, I'll stop.
These are some ATCs I've received from fellow swappers. I really admire the works of these women because they're actual watercolor paintings and on such a small surface. The elephant and mandala came from Marianne in The Netherlands. You can visit her blog at http://mandarianne.blogspot.com to see some of her cool mandalas. The bottom ATC came from Mim at http://ammdh.blogspot.com and it's her interpretation of "dust." If my dust looked this arsty, there would be a lot more around!
These cards are from Gina at http://bt-thecraftygardener.blogspot.com and they came all the way from Ireland. She has a great garden filled with lots of wonderful sights. This swap will definitely be keeping me busy over the summer.
Where have the past 9 months gone? I have no idea where they went but I do know one thing. Before the next 2 months are over, I want to have accomplished my "to do" summer list. I've always wanted to solder and there's no excuse for me not to know how. My husband the tool man has the proper materials for me to get started. I have the glass slides and images. Helloooo, why has this taken me so long?! Well, like they say, better late than never, right?
You can take a peak at my summer list by clicking on it. If you think there's something fun and easy I should add to it, drop me a comment. But please, keep it simple. LOL! I want to make sure I complete what I start. Remember that last post?!
