Whew! It was a busy weekend! I finally managed to squeek out some time to go to Vancouver's monthly ATC swap after missing the last 5 months. (Due to moving and the holidays.) It was nice to see everyone again and have some time to just hang out and talk. This heart was one of my cards. I was amused when my friend Penn asked me where I was buying this perforated paper. I told her I'd made it myself. I used this plate for the heart and this plate for the background from Paper Artsy. It was just alot of playing around.
On my way into Vancouver, I passes a young woman riding her horse on one of the trails that runs parallel to the highway. Her horse was beautiful. I also got to have a breathtaking view of the North Shore mountains in all their snow covered glory. That's one thing about living in BC-the view are incredible on a day to day basis. I love my mountains!
After the swap, Penn and I walked down to Regional Assembly of Text and bought one of their cool little handmade books. I haven't had a chance to really look at it yet, but they have a mini book of the month club and you can get new little books every month by mail. Fun!
We also made a trip over to Loomis to start buying the bits and pieces I need for Artfest. Yesterday's purchase was canvasses for Anahata's class. I wanted to buy some ink too, but I forgot to grab my supply list and take it with me so next time! Hard to believe Artfest is only 71 days away! I cannot wait. I desperately need to get my passport renewed. It runs up right in the middle of Artfest and I can't have that! At some point, I need to do some more work on my trades. I have them about 1/2 done. I just need to find a window of time to finish them up! (That's no mean feat these days!)
Still waiting on the details of the news I want to share. Hopefully I will have them soon! Stay tuned!
