Latest Swaps!

I've been busy - off of work and playing like crazy! These are all for Swap-bot swaps, partners haven't been selected yet. This is for an Inchies swap... includes my photos (printed on vellum), stamps, stickers and embossed stamps. This is 1 of 2 in the series.
This for a inchies postcard swap. Each inchie was done by hand, photographed then rearranged in Word and printed. I used a laminate to cover the postcard to make it travel well.
This is for a B/W inchie swap. These are all my photos. There are 3 in this series.
This is for a recycled ATC swap. I used a Coach catalog for all my ATCs. This is just 1 set of 3 that I did for this swap.

This is for a Xmas Recyled swap. I used wrappin and tissue paper, along with some vintage images. This 1 of 3 in the series.
I also signed up for a mini notebook swap - each book is 2"x3" and the pages are either mulberry or handmade paper. This was fun!

2 New ATCs

This one was fun to play with. Although not much of it showed, the bottom of the atc has a autumn photo of mine. And of coarse the background is a vintage bingo card.

This one is 3-d - although you can't tell it. It's called Queen Bee. The flowers are my photos too. The background has texture (ran through my sizzix). I hope the recipient enjoys these!

Gothic Arch ATC

This is a two-fold post! This is one of 9 ATCs I have to put together for a Gothic Arch ATC swap at Swap-bot. And the hat tag is from Green Paper Packages - she wanted to see what I was gonna do with the tag, so here it is! PS - she has wonderful things - take a look if you get a chance!

Xmas Inchies

Anxiously awaiting 12/17 when I will find out who will get these inchies. This is for a swap on Swap-bot. The inchies were done like the folder... stamped, inked (the inchies also had webbing spray - my new favorite in a spray!) and then cut into 1" squares. These can be very addicting! I hope my partners likes them!

Christmas Decorations

Never tried taking night photos before... not that they're sharp,
but of coarse I had to alter them.

Some of my newest swaps that have gone out!

Been busy working on my swaps - here are a few that I have sent out. This first one was for embossed inchies... I thought they looked like coral in the caribbean, so I named it "under the sea".

This one was for a tag in an ATC... The little girl and the couple were the tags. They fit nicely in the "background".

As I normally do, on Saturday Jake and I go out with my camera and take pictures. This one in particular was for a swap that I ran that was all about autmn tree colors. I love these kind of shots - where it shows the clouds and sky.

wow-has it been that long since my last post?

Been really busy doing stuff, I guess not anything I wanted to post... so here we are.

Above is a handmade journal I did for a swap. Love my bind-it-all!

"Rose" was done for a swap. Its 4"x4".

And finally, bird ATCs also done for a swap. I am hosting another swap for the birds. I hope you will sign up and swap! Other swaps I am hosting are zentangle atcs, autumn tree color photograph atcs and 100 inchies in 100 days. Of coarse - all on Swap-bot!

Trigger Happy - Circle

Ok so this was fun. Swap-bot swap - Trigger Happy - Circle wanted us to go and photograph the first five round items we saw. I went to our local art alliance and looked for those rounds!

Enjoy the swap Lunaria, HappyCactus and Hyperoma!

Anything look familiar?

See anything familiar in the cloud formation?

Love those clouds~

It always seems that I get in a run of doing a particular type of photos. So it seems clouds is my new fascination. Never had so much fun looking up!

Meet Jake - My favorite subject! Kelli - enjoy!

As you all know I swap on Swap-bot and this posting is to fulfill my swap duties with Kelli. You see we are to share pictures of pets, so here he be. I've had Jake 8 years and he's my best bud. He loves to accompany me on Saturdays when we hit the yardsales and look for photo opportunities. I really think he loves to model for me. One day I just shot loads of pictures and each one was a little different (the altered shot to the right is one of them) .

One of my favorite pictures is the one where he is wearing his "doogles". It was very easy to take his picture as he would not move until I removed them. Looks already for a ride in the convertible huh?

The one here is a shot of Sundance on the beach around 1975. I superimposed a shot of Jake next to him. Sundance died in 1989, and Jake wasn't born until 1999. But I think the shot looks they were both there at the same time.

The portrait of Jake is superimposed and kinda makes him look like a southern gentleman (which he is - born in Florida!). Well this has been fun! I hope you enjoy Kelli.

Look - up in the sky!

These photos just looked too good not to shoot them.

Another Saturday out and about

The spider web was in my backyard, the others were taken at Sickles in Little Silver.

Magic Stamp fun!

Got the magic stamp and have had lots of fun! I have a push pin that I incorporated into the stamp. The detail is amazing!
Several I cut out and backed with pop dots, the others just trimmed to ATC size. FUN!

Altered American Flag

This flag was on the building next to where I work. I started altering the photo... like the way it turned out.
