Thank you, Gozer! Smiley I started a thread in the ATC forum to put all of my ATCs. I've only been creating them for a month and there are already so many on that thread from this swap and personal swaps. I use those premade cards that come in packs, and I told my husband tonight that if I'm not careful I will end up with a pack a day habit. lol

"a pack a day habit", lol.  It is addicting but you will have some times, once you get the first initial rush out, that you slow down and speed up again.  You are definitely going to have to start just using supplies you have on hand, a pack a day, you might go broke.  :-)

Haha pack a day.... Ha.   
Personally, I find those packs of pre-cut ATCs expensive!  I have a little paper trimmer I use to cut paper (card stock, watercolor paper, etc.) into ATC blanks. It's super easy and you can get nine blanks out of a 8.5" x 11" sheet! (More from huge watercolor pads).

One of these days I will have a minute or two to actually spend time on ATCs.  (So far my ATC a day blog is a little embarrassing, since they're all thrown together at the last second...). I must return to watercolor or something besides just pen and markers...

So many inspiring cards in this gallery! Oh my, I just looked through them all on my teeny phone screen, but (I've said this before, but I'll say it again) there are so many amazing artists on here!  Hooray for you all!

I'm sure I'll slow down, but the getting started rush sure is fun. Smiley I'm already telling my husband the cereal box is claimed for repurposing, not letting him throw away any postcards we get in case they have something I can use, and keeping the brown paper sleeves that come on Starbucks cups. He thinks it's hilarious. I'm loving finally having an outlet for all this stored up inspiration I've had, but haven't had time for with running my own business. I do agree that the packs are pricy, ($2.69 for 10 pieces of watercolor paper/20 pieces of bristol!?) but my paper cutter is wimpy, and I haven't been able to take one of my watercolor pads up to Kinkos and have them chop it up into delicious little atc sized morsels quite yet. Thank you guys for not kicking me out for being overly excited all the time. Smiley

Mountains and Clouds, I can't wait to see some more cards from you! They're always fantastic!

Needing an on-line break ... I'll be back later in 2018.

For my abstract theme, "Forest Abstract" (along with the cute card she sent it in) from fancybutch

The textures and colors on this are amazing! I can't stop touching it  Roll Eyes

And my second Nerdy ABC from blupaisan "D is for Density"

It has the density info for styrofoam and its made on styrofoam!  Cheesy I love it!

Just got back from the mainland, it's almost midnight here, and I just realized I never posted the extras that Paper Beau sent! (She totally spoiled me)

The little moon can slide along the string!
And stamps! Yay stamps!

Thanks so much, Paper Beau!!!

It's nice to have a use for all the stamps I bought from Oxfam (I knew I'd need them for crafting.. I just didn't know when!!)

Is it ok to admit I feel a little intimidated by the artwork I've been admiring in the gallery? You are all just crazy talented!

Oh.. and expect some atcs made from handmade banana skin paper next month  Wink
