First ATC Swap

I love drooling over these small pieces of art that can inspire anything from a scrapbook page to home decor.
I have been wanting to get started on making some of my own for about a year now. I introduced my kids to the idea of them, but they rather make them out of flash cards, being that they are just a tad bit bigger. Soon I'll put some of their little works of art on here.

So a friend of mine ( Hi Dee! ) joined a stamp group in New Orleans recently and she asked me last Friday if I wanted to go to a swap on Saturday. I'd never been to one and I'm glad I took her up on the offer.
I started too feel a little intimidated b/c this is a stamp group and I haven't done much stamping. The one I created is the witch on the black cardstock. You can't see how much it sparkles in this pic, so I will be posting another. I don't think I did too bad for my first go-round. The themes were breast cancer awareness or Halloween.

I had a wonderful time! I met some really nice ladies and just enjoyed myself. I couldn't believe how relaxing it was for me. I was so proud of the goodies I collected to bring home to show my kids who were making their own while I was gone! They think it's just the coolest thing. They made some pretty cool stuff too!

These are the ones that I got permission to post from Pat, Lorraine, Brenda, Connie, Jan, Sue, Sandra, myself, and Dee. Thanks ladies!
