ATCs and mail-art sent

Hi you all! Once again the week is racing by, there is never enough time to do everything I want to, and I wonder how I ever managed when I had to work and look after my family etc. Perhaps I used to be quicker....
I spent a nice day yesterday with my friend Inge; as usual, we talked non-stop, played cards, drank a lot of coffee, and still found time for breakfast, lunch and some sweet treats in the afternoon. The day flew by, and before I knew it, it was time to go home again. I need to drive home while it is still light, as I can't see well in the dark, and try not to drive then. Better safe than sorry.
Yesterday evening I was intending to tidy the kitchen, and then I started crafting. Once again my good intentions went speeding down the road that leads to perdition, while I made 2 ATCs and did more work a little album that I can't show yet. How 2 tiny ATCs can take up so much time, I do not know, but that's my excuse that the kitchen is still in a mess! I put another tiny book of *Spells most evil* on the yellowy one, and the moon has been cut from a piece of matte, silver metal which was the seal on a coffee tin.





I posted off some mail art envelopes yesterday, and nearly forget to take a picture of one of them. It was already *stuffed* by the time I realised, so the photo looks rather lumpy, sorry!



Well, I'm afraid that's all for today. I hope to have a little more to share with you tomorrow, if it's only the photos of a tidy kitchen instead one that looks as though it has been ransacked and vandalised....Have a good day, take care and thanks for dropping in again!

  1. I agree ... ATC's are time consuming! I haven't done that many either. Good job on the ones you did, and the mail art is stellar! Love it. Don't tidy too much, you won't be able to find anything. :o) hugs, Donna

  7. I am so LOVING this series you're doing with all those elements of Poe, very inspiring! In fact I think you've broken my mental block on this week's challenge at IA- the theme is "Fear" and I can see combining birds with Poe with scary things birds can do.......
    Thanks as always for the inspiration!

  10. Great ATCs! You know that I sometimes think that when the kids were small and I was working at our kitchen table I have done more than now when I have a studio of my own. Maybe I had more energy then than I have now...

  13. Love your Halloween atc's. Glad you had fun with your friend. It's good to get away. I don't drive in the dark either. In fact I'm never out after dark unless my husband and I are together. Valerie, sugared or candied skulls are just that. A skull made out of candy. They sell fast. Take care and thx for sharing your good stuff. I'm not even prepped for PPF, I don't have anything. I'll have to see what I have but you are right, the days go by too fast.
