Time to Relax and to Play

I have spent most of the first week of the school holidays at school, marking, tidying, filing preparing and cleaning. While the the job is never done I am now at peace with my work. School with children is wonderful, school without children is so much more productive! My faithful Archer joined me each day with snacks, his bed and a nice warm heater he was happy.
At night I have played, these ATC's are a mix of vintage charms, original photo's, cheap embellishments, ephemera and lots of paints. Five of them are promised. If you would like a swap please let me know.

oh i really do love these julie! They are everything i could have hoped for. I'd be all over trading 2 for 2 with you, for the two that are in the top right corner of their groups of 4.

I'm so excited!

Hi Julie,
Thanks for your lovely comment re my blog, yes, the jam, very strange, but would love to give it a try...let me know hoe you go?..
And, wow, i love your explanation, as i feel the same way, I often see pics of people/kids with their backs to the camera, and I get a stronger sense of the journey they're taking...
I love your ATC'S...they're very beautiful, so full of rich texture and layers and your workmanship is wonderful to see...xx

Your cards are absolutely stunning -- every detail is exquisite. I'm so glad I saw these!

I'm not ready to swap yet (I think after seeing your work, I'd need to ramp mine up!) but hopefully as we get through the summer a bit more, I'll finally have some time at the art table!
