....well, I got my ATC mojo back.  It returned to me full swing on Saturday, and I worked it for all it was worth until now, late Sunday evening.  I knew I was on a roll, but wasn't sure how much of one til I added up the cards tonight.

Any guesses?  6? 8? 14? Keep going.

Here are the cards that I made last night and today:

Black and White Swap cards, and a Bat. Smiley


Misc themed cards....

Skullies, Lady of Guadalupe, Crayon TipTop Dolly (for a 4 cheap-o CRAYON only 'dare'), 2 Fridas, and one Postal Poppy

4 marriage cards (top row), and 4 TipTop Dolls Taking over the WORLD!


Hellboy swap, and Vintage Paris Swap:


Plus, there is another that didn't get scanned.  What is that, 30?  Gee whiz!  I'm sure that's a record for me. 
I actually made the first 6 (black and white only) cards last night, almost all the others I made today.  I made at least 20 cards in 11 hours.

So, that's why I hadn't been joining many swaps lately, I didn't have my mojo.  It came back...don't know for how long, but I got some stuff done in the meantime! Cheesy  Who says the mania can't be productive?

Oh, and I didnt just make ATCs straight for 24 hours.  Here's a brief rundown:
Saturday :
9pm,  Put the kids to bed, start making ATCs.
9-10, ATCS
10-11:30, watch a movie
11:30-12:30am, ATCS
Sleep
Sunday:
Morning Routine
Church
Lunch
1:30-3p ATCS
3-5p ATCs/play with kids
5-7 Make a homemade pizza from scratch, make ATCs in free time, eat the pizza
7-12 midnight, ATCs

So, maybe 10-12 hours or so?  I guess that is a lot.  I'm chasing kids, changing diapers and checking email in the meantime, as well as tucking kids in bed, picking up toys off the floor, filling sippy cups, passing out snacks, talking on the phone, scanning ATCs, reading stories to kids, etc.  I didn't do any dishes or laundry though. :eek:

VIVA la ATC MANIA! 

Obsessed?  Who, me???

Guess I should get some sleep now, right? Grin

But first, which card (or set)  is your favorite?

Thanks!  I was on a roll, I guess.

The Hellboy ones are for a swap my hubby is hosting, so he made me join.  I don't know anything about the movie or character! Cheesy

My favs are the Frida ones where you drew colored over the stamps ... it makes for an interesting effect. All the others are great, too. After the Fridas, my favs are the black and whites. It takes a lot of talent to do black and white really well.
