Amore


I sure do love trading, purchasing and receiving goodies in the mail. In one of my previous posts, I showed you how I had framed one of Corey's pieces. I then saw another one she had done that I had to have also to go with the first one. It came today. Isn't it beautiful? It's going in my bedroom when it gets finished right next to her other lovely piece.


I had told you about my ATC trade with Shelley with a Beatles theme. Look at what she came up with! How creative! I love them all. (She also added quite a bit of goodies to use in upcoming ATCs! Thank you!!) I am feeling the love with the new Beatles' Love compilation. Very fun. It's been years since I've listened to a lot of Beatles in one sitting. And since Shelley has received mine, I can post them. I did an obscure one of "The Benefit of Mr. Kite" which was written by John after he had purchased an antique circus poster. It almost goes word for word by the poster. Then, growing up, I was in love with Ringo (and so was Ms. Dianne, I later found out this weekend!). He was the quiet one and I loved all his rings, of course. So, I had to do an I Love Ringo ATC.

The other is self explanatory, I think. A blue meanie searching for the yellow submarine while the octopus' garden is gentle on the floor. It was such a fun trade. Really made me think! Thank you, Shelley, for the valentine too! I still can't get on your site! (BTW, there are so many I still cannot get onto, it is getting quite frustrating as I've never had problems before!)

Well, when it rains, it pours. I also received a surprise package from Bethy. She sent me lots and lots of ATCs. Gorgeous ones! Look at the valentine ones. To die for, gorgeous. And then these. She has a technique of embossing this metal tape that I just adore. Thank you Beth! If we don't get snow tonight (keeping fingers' crossed), I hope to see you tomorrow!!


Yes, we are supposed to get snow. We are ALL hoping for it just like little kids! We haven't had any in a long time. Actually, the last time we did get a lot of snow was when we first moved in here and we were having some hard wood floors put in. Hmmmm, maybe that's the connection, ya think?

The hub is in Geneva where he says they too have snow. Crazy times. Today was a much calmer day. But, I am still tired. Think it's jammy time.

Well I know I am a weeny cause I haven't gotten into making ATC's. I think they really intimidate me. I did buy one off Etsy though. I hope if any of you are selling yours that you will give me your usernames so I can purchase from you...please.

You have many gorgeous treasures. Love how you display them.

Lots of hugs,
Connie

Where did you get those tiny easels for your ATCs? They're great! I make ATCs too. Maybe we can trade sometime?

I am also in SOSF so I will "see you around!"

Can't help myself, Rosa. I am SO jealous of all your goodies, and all the talent!

These are gorgeous! Is that a claddagh stamp I see? ( the hands and crown and heart is an Irish symbol for the claddagh ring. I have one but lost it...:( ) I love your goodies.

I'm so glad you like the piece! I think it will look great with the other one! :)

Hi, I came to comment about the ATC you made for Beth. I chuckled because I have the same 'photo print' on my blog for Valentine's Day.

I really like the work youv'e done and the look of your blog. But the print is much too tiny to read.
