I’ve been keeping the scanner humming today. I’m finally getting around to scanning and saving all the old photos and postcards that I’ve gotten in the past year or so.

The photo that has been the most fun for me is this hand colored portrait of my Grandmother from the 1920’s.

I’m also working on ideas for a couple different ATC (artist trading card) swaps I’m participating in.

One uses only junk mail..this is so much fun. I’ll definitely posts my results.

The other is a 4th anniversary project for abc_alteredbookclub. The announcement has not been made to the group yet but as a co-moderator, I was in on the decision. Nice to have prior knowledge sometimes. 🙂 Hopefully I’m not letting the cat out of the bag too soon.

After months of thinking about making a blog, I’ve finally jumped in. I’m planning on posting pictures of current artwork, whether it’s altered books, collage, ATC’s, scrapbooking or assemblage. Who knows what I’ll take up next. I love that my creativity is coming out more and more as I age…maybe I am just able to shut out that inner critic more.

Art is my Prozac…makes me happy and keeps me sane.

This minibook is my latest creation. I know that I didn’t use a “proper” book binding technique but it worked for me.
