I was looking for links for ATC swaps- (I posted a link on yesterday's blog comments about what an ATC is- but I'll 'splain again: an ATC is a trading card created in the size of a playing card- it is decorated in any manner with any subject- google the word and you will see how fun and pretty they are)- anyway~ I found swap-bot. It's a cool online conglomeration of people and groups that host swaps of various kinds. I found an ATC group, but I also found some more interesting things. (If you want to trade ATCs with me- the skelly ones- my email address is email@example.com~ Alphabetsy, I didn't want to muddle your blog with this reply and I didn't see where I could email you directly. We could exchange addresses and set a date for the time they should be mailed out)
I found a group that swaps zentangles. The link will show you what it is. funny thing is, I've been creating zentangles on my notes or notebook all through school without realizing that they are an art form:
dotee dolls. I've made these before too! except without the requisite tail. I thought these would be cool to make and trade, and maybe even drop off in random places for the Toy Society.
Which then caused me to add a few blogs to my must read list. I swear, I'll be on all day if I keep adding more. My mom had to do the same with the blog Kitchen Witch after looking at the nummy tomato and peach salad recipe.
Then today, I was reading through all the blogs I subscribe too- and this one caught my eye: Go out beneath the naked Night posted an item about these cute frogs- you have to check it out!
thats a real full grown frog!
Finally, Mrs. B at Confessions of a pagan Soccer mom is starting to take applications for giveaways, guest bloggers, and haunted blogs for her 31 days of Halloween. So I will be changing my background for halloween and hopefully participating in her 31 days.
I need to know how to add a link to a badge like this when I post it on the side of my page- does blogspot allow for that?Other than that, I worked a bit more on the skellys, I met up with my kids for a nice dinner in an airconditioned restuarant, I realized I can never spell restaurant, I started my holiday gifts, and I made plans to hit the fabric store before too long for a few bits of halloween fabric. No, I didn't work on the quilt yet. Someday~ I have a year after marriage to send a gift, don't I? lol. Today I'll be making applesauce and lemon chess pie.
