A little ATC fun

ATC's (Artist's Trading Cards) are fun, easy and inexpensive to mail to your arty friends.

Here are 2 I did this morning being mailed out to a pen pal in the USA :)

Cheap and easy way to decorate a small Christmas tree

With Christmas just around the corner here's an easy and cheap way to decorate a small tree.
My number one craft shop is Hobbycraft.  Luckily enough there is a store very near to where I live.  I popped in there a few weeks back and found some of these small wool felted hearts for £1 (I think there were 6 in a pack).  They are soft and easy to decorate with buttons, bows or you can just use your sewing skills. All they need is a hanging thread and they are ready.  Most of us have a stash of craft items - so it was a pound well spent!

Do you like to smell OLD?

When I say old I mean smell like you did back in the 70's and 80's.  Do you remember what perfumes you wore and what they made you feel like?

One of my favourites was Goya's Aqua Manda - I used to drench myself in this stuff, and it's back on the market although a lot of people say it's not like the original, mores the pity.

Another favourite was Jovan Musk Oil, beautiful fragrance if I remember rightly, did you wear this one?  

You must remember Avon's Pretty Peach (those of a certain age obviously)  yummy.

Lovely memories and you can still find these!

Spooky goings on

I have been involved with 2 different ATC (Artist's Trading Cards) swaps this week.

One is an 'Orange' theme and one is a 'Halloween' movie theme.

The amount you send out is the amount you get back from other swappers, so lots of lovely things to look forward to !  22 to be exact.

In the meantime here is my selection i'm sending out :

Creative and beautiful Art Dolls

Anything that is different, creative and quirky always fascinates me.  The world of Art Dolls is a quirky one indeed.  I would say these examples are in the premier league of creative excellence.  All of these have been found on Pinterest and are by various artists.  If I had the money to buy one I would.  They are not 'dolls' they are works of art - please enjoy :)
