art trading cards and a peek inside...

recently i have gotten into ATC's or art trading cards. i did a swap with some of the ladies at scrap n' art. it is something that has intrigued me for quite some time. and so my collection begins. here are the ones i have done:
(i haven't gotten the others from the swap yet)



and then, because it's been awhile since i've shown you my beloved mess...here's a glimpse into what i affectionately call my studio!!


overall view - kind of...my sewing machine and
a few other bookcases are not pictured



my desk - it is NEVER clean. if it was that would be a sign
that i'm not using it. and that would be sad.



various lovelies - a bit of this and that for projects



inspiration - okay, the twilight pictures don't necessarily inspire
me, but they are nice to look at.






fabric bins - a wee look at my growing collection. i get fabric from:
joann fabrics
flea markets
thrift shops
the paris flea market (happens during the summer)
vintage items (tablecloths, etc)
shower curtains (from target...they have fab. prints)
that is currently all i can remember, but i'm sure the list goes on...


also not pictured is my jewelry making nook. that is actually part of my sewing machine table. a situation that needs amending. it's comical to watch me sqeeze into the area where my beads and things are and make jewelry. but i do it.

yours is my favorite craft space - I love just taking it all in...it's MY inspiration! :D
and i love my ATC - I'm putting it in a frame and placing it where I can see it every day - the BB quote will always and forever remind me of you now!
simply cannot wait for the Paris Flea Market - I'm saving my money now!
