So I finally tried ATC’s
And as you can see I need more practice and textures but I still had fun
To see gorgeous examples along with a how- to visit Shona Cole's blog.
My 9 year old daughter was really excited about this project and wants to do this with me. I have seen on some blogs where these ATC’s are traded and would love to see if anyone has children interested in creating & trading with my little one for the holidays…
Although I love technology, I also am saddened @ the lack of anticipation over the mailbox. Junk mail & bills aren’t fun & my daughter doesn’t even understand the concept of a pen pal. Let me know if you would be open to our children/grandchildren swapping holiday ATC’s ~ comment here or send me an e-mail @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, you may have noticed that some of my posts have focused more on children recently. I will continue posts about our own self-discovery & finding our voices, but I believe it’s important that we raise our daughters to do the same. I will continue to weave that theme in some of my posts and have added a new page (tab across the top) called “Mom’s Treasures”. As I find resources, articles etc I will add links there.
Have a great weekend!
