It's almost October!

Here are a couple of photos of ATCs I did for a swap on atcsforall.com
I couldn't let September go by without at least one new post. I'm not sure how I lost my mojo and stopped blogging, but I intend to remedy that.

I've been getting interested in fashion and deciding that I need to pay more attention to how I look and how I present myself. Clothes shopping to follow. I love reading some of the fashion blogs that are out there, though I doubt I'll be venturing into fashionista territory. Check out my favorite: Camille from childhoodflames.blogspot.com

For the past couple of weeks, I've been getting together with Aimee and Lori to do ATCs. It's been a blast and I know I'll be doing a blog post with lots of photos of ATCs from these get-togethers. We took a class at the arts council together and have been getting together for dinner every few months or so, but we decided we should get together and do art. We have two weeks to go.

I've just started making paper beads. I hadn't had much luck doing it in the past, but I found an old catalog at work that has colored catagory edges in all different colors. Perfect for making beads! And this time they are turning out great! I will post a picture when I get them made into a necklace. I found a cool idea involving recycling t-shirt material into jewelry.

Hi Libby! It sure has been fun doing ATC's with you and Lori! I never really got the hang of them before but this time it seems to be going better for me. I love the ones you posted here! They are great.

Good luck with clothes shopping! I like to check out what's in the thrift stores because there's such a big variety. It's a fun way to check out styles and colors one might not have considered before. Sure, there's a lot of duds, but on the other hand, I've gotten clothes from pricey labels as well!

Aimee, I've been having a great time with you and Lori as well. I hope we can do it again sometime. Maybe even get Kelli and Dana involved. :)
