ATC's From Sarah

My good friend Sarah of Vintage Figments and I got together yesterday for a little shopping, a little eating, some catching up and an entirely enjoyable day.  Sarah just got back from her Artful Voyage cruise to Mexico with Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi.  She created some amazing art during her voyage and gave me some of the ATC's she had traded while on the cruise.  I love all of them.....thanks again Sarah!!

Happy Mail from Kris Dickinson

My good blog friend Kris Dickinson of A Nostalgic Halloween sent me this wonderful tag and some awesome ATC's in return for a few ATC's and a tag that I sent her last week.  I loved opening the beautiful package and seeing these wonderful goodies inside....thanks Kris for the happy mail!!

Altered Spoon

I recently picked up some old spoons while out thrift shopping and decided to try altering one of them. I have seen many different kinds of altered silverware out in blogland...all of them beautiful. I decided to make mine a Christmas ornament. I cut off part of the handle and curled the rest back to make a loop then I put burgandy colored velvet on the spoon and added trim and embellishments. There is a great tutorial on how to do this at Gingersnap Creations Blog. Thanks for stopping by my nest!
