I received a fabulous and awesome Pinata ATC from Sonjaboo yesterday!!!
Get ready to be amazed....

TADA!!! How rad is this?! The pinata hangs from the top of the ATC (I fluffed him a bit so you could see all his paper-fringe) and the stick is attached with an eyelet, so it moves to hit the pinata!

Thank you so much sonjaboo! I LOVE THIS CARD Smiley

Calluna, What a crazy random happenstance! I happen to LOVE Dr Horrible. I've watched it about a thousand times Smiley I'll trade you for your Bad Horse card!

My storage consists of several smaller boxes with paper stored on end, so it's easier to flip through... Then some stuff is in photo albums, and then a lot is still in book form on a bookshelf, waiting to be butchered! It's definitely not as organized as I like and I have a hard time finding things, but like you, Singalala, I don't think i'd be committed enough to keep up a super-organized system.

alwaysinmysroom- As for keeping an ATC record you can show off: I started an altered journal specifically for displaying my ATCs and smaller artworks, so I could bring it along when I visit family.  The ATCs I send, I only have photos on the computer, but it would be pretty easy to print photos to correct ATC size and paste them in.... Here's what my ATC book looks like, with a couple of the ATC spreads:

243  Free as a bird!!! Scrapbooking paper bird wall hanging :) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Nooo on: October 29, 2009 05:32:24 PM
Here's my go at the challenge!

The materials I used for this were black string, scrapbooking paper, cut up cereal boxes (for stability) and pigment inks!

I made the bird by tracing another watercolored bird I made the other day onto scrapbooking paper, then cutting it out and using a sharpie pen to draw all the details. Next, I used a little bit of watercolor to make the body a little bit greener, then colored the edges with a blue stamp pad.

For the frame (which turned out surprisingly like a matte board), I just used 1.5" strips of cereal boxes and glued them together to make an 8"x8" frame. I then just used a gluestick to paste the scrapbooking paper to its front. Cut out the center with a razor blade, and voila! A frame Smiley The "cage bars" are just lengths of black string attached to the back with hot glue, evenly spaced.

The raindrops falling off the bottom are merely cut out of a thicker scrapbooking paper and edged with a black inkpad, then glued to the strings which were then glued to the back of the frame!

Here's a pic of the back...NOT CUTE! But it gives you an idea as to the construction of the thing.

I hope you like it!!  Grin

244  Jellyfish/Octopus Woodburned Wooden Spoons in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Nooo on: October 27, 2009 09:24:17 AM
Hi! I haven't posted a project in a while... I get so caught up blogging them that I get lazy and don't post as much as I aught to here Smiley

This set of wood-burned spoons was inspired by:

My hubby is constantly on the hunt for a hobby, but can never find one he likes... We have a wood burner, so I thought I'd do a little project with him!

So I did the doodling of the jellies, and my hubby did the woodburning.

Unfortunately, he didn't have fun with it.... So the search for a hobby continues.

Oh well, I'll just burn the next set and add to my list of 10000 hobbies.

I hope you like them!  Grin

Received a pretty awesome ATC from pulling teeth!

It's a raccoon with enormous balls that swing, along with the song that inspired him...
You were right, pulling teeth, it is a little crude, but at least the raccoon is cute  Cheesy

Thanks so much!

I received a fantastic X-Men ATC from Ursulaandolive!

This was her first ATC ever! I'm very honored to be the recipient! She also included an awesome little wolverine magnet which I believe may have been a pokerchip.

Thank you so much! I really love it!

Ooooooh... Phizzy, I like the page with the feather!!! Did you use bubble-wrap to stamp that texture? It's very nice.

I did a few more spreads in my new book... did I say that I started a new book? I can never remember what I've only blogged and what I've actually posted here in this thread... Anyways, the new book is for displaying ATCs, inchies, and other smaller paintings and paperstuffs. I don't think I've actually posted any of it here, so.. Get ready for some pics. Some of the ATCs are posted in another thread just by themselves....

First is the outside cover with a paint chip doodlething and some handspun cottonjunk cord glued around the edge...

First page with another paint chip doodlething and hangtags

Owl spread....

opened and popped-up

just painted the bird this evening

there are some other spreads that I didn't get too elaborate with yet, and aren't very interesting... Maybe i'll post them when I add more to them. Anyways, everyone has been putting up some really awesome pages the past week or so, and it's getting me more inspired! I can't wait for this thread to blow up again!!!! Smiley

Both of my envelopes came in yesterday's mail  Grin And they are wonderful!

Very pretty envelope from CjSachiko

Lots of wonderful goodies! My favorite is the doilies (I've been thinking about them) and the fiber! My mind is running, what will I make with it....Smiley

A gorgeously decorated tyvek envelope from MunLtStmpr! She drew all this stuff on there!

And the contents! I'm amazed at how much stuff she managed to cram in there! My favorite are the little bindis and the earrings.

Thank you two so much for the awesome envelopes!
