Good Evening all! It's been a tough week at our house, and I didn't get a blog in till today. Too much going on with Chloe's attacker being hunted and being angry and all the upset involved with that. The previous week was VBS, and I will post a neat photo from that if I can find it.

I issued a challenge on my weightloss support group page for a piece of artwork...so figured I'd better make one.

It's not real complicated. Just a piece of wallpaper border cut up and arranged and pasted into my art journal. I'm discovering that simple is better sometimes though. The idea isn't complicated, and the journalling even less so. My heartfelt desire is liable to surprise a few folks! lol

I'm also posting the last couple of journal challenges I did. I'm pretty pleased with them really. I'm growing, just a little slowly compared to some. That's OK. My rate of growth suits me just fine.

I'm feeling a lot less angry, and feeling more hurt and offended now. That will be good for the art. Maybe I will get some more ATCs done and posted tomorrow.

G'nite all!

Framing ATCs

Good Morning fellow crafters!

This weeks blog is kinda short, cuz I got work to do. Sorry to disappoint.

This project was something I saw on one of my ATC groups. I liked it so much that I had to re-create it! It looks fairly simple and it is!

All I did was go to the thrift store, and buy a huge-22x28"-picture. I took the picture out, then pounded some brass furniture tacks at 5" intervals down the sides. Then I strung jute twine between the tacks and clipped my cards to the twine with some tiny clothespins I got at Wal-Mart. The whole thing cost less than 10 bucks!

Simple project, beautiful, and inexpensive. I encourage you to try it!

Have an awesome week!
