They are so addictive!!! I guess it's the same thing.... like making cards... but this is so fun to trade afterwards!
Sunday I made a batch of 12 for the Fabric Swap "Take 2" and had extra papers all ready cut and decided to make a separate batch of 6 called "Seeds of Friendship"... love the hydrangea paper flower! And the 6 black and silver ones "Sparkle Touch" were also completed last week. From this batch of 12 I have mailed one for Catherine, I owed 6 to my swap girls at the Scrapbox (Janet, Anne, Elizabeth, Debbie and Monica) because I was in love with a few extra ones that the girls brought at the last swap and I am also just giving 2 xtra ones... to Jenn and Tammy (they were my "enablers" to start making ATC's!)
A special note to.... Rachel, to all the soldiers around the worlds and to family and friends of those who lost love ones, I am sending positive thoughts today towards all of you and also thanking you for what you are doing for our Country and all of us. A big thanks from the bottom of my *heart*.
I painted this watercolor painting "Looking Up to Old Glory" just days after 9/11/01. I felt scared, anxious for what would come next in our country. My husband was on an aircraft carrier in the Gulf and I had not spoken (really emailed) with him since the morning of 9/11, I watched the news 24 hours a day hoping to catch word of his ship and find out where he was. To this day when I look at this painting and think about our world then, I get so emotional I can't control my tears. On this day, I keep all the families that lost a loved one or dear friend close to my heart -- and will look to Old Glory for comfort. #neverforget
