  1. Sorry I missed the chat, softball game! I'll check out the tutorial soon.
  2. So glad you are joining me, Ann!
  3. On my birthday, dh did something funny with my candles. Here is the story: For my 45th birthday, Tim got me an ice cream cake! When it came time to put the candles on, we realized we didn’t have a 5. So, Tim being so creative, used another 4 and a 1 because 4+1=5! The girls saw the cake and thought I was turning 441 years old! They though it was hysterical and Lauren took this photo to put on Instagram. I really didn’t care, I just wanted to eat the cake!

  4. Hopefully Spring has hit your neck of the woods finally! Or Fall has hit and temps are cooling off for you! Are you ready for another round of Hybrid ATC Swaps? The theme this round is Daily Affirmations! That's all I'm going to say so I don't influence your creativity. But, we will have some inspiration in May to help you if you are stuck. Now that you know the theme, what in the world is a hybrid atc swap? ATCs are Artist Trading Cards, 3.5 inches x 2.5 inches (either orientation is fine). Hybrid is combining traditional paper crafting with digital crafting. How much of each medium you use is up to you! On the back of the atc, the artist signs the card, and can add any other info they want (date, location, title of swap, title of card, etc.) You can also number them (1 of 10, 2 of 10, etc). Once your cards are ready to go, you will snail mail them to me and when I have them all, I will sort them and mail them back. The best way to do this seems to be to buy the 9 slot baseball trading card holders. They are designed to fit into a standard 3 ring binder. You can fold the sheets in thirds and fit them into a business sized envelope. Please include return postage in one of the slots, allowing for an extra ounce in case participants are especially exuberant with their bling. If it's not needed, I will return it with your goodies. Also please include a self-addressed envelope. We've found that the larger 6x9 envelopes work better than business sized envelopes but the postage rate is the same. When you mail the envelope to me, the post office people will tell you if there's a non-machinable surcharge. A great hint is to use your own address as the return address in case it gets "returned" for any reason. Sign up in this thread by Sunday, April 29th . On Monday, April 30th, I'll PM everyone and let you know how many to make and my address. Please have them in my hands by May 31st. I'll get them distributed and back in the mail as soon as I can. If all the cards are received before that, then I'll send them back out earlier.***Please note I will be going on vacation in early June and really want to have them sent back out to you all before I leave. If you are interested in participating, just leave a comment in this thread. I'm looking forward to it! Carla Ann
