Today was a good day. My brother and I took my son to see Tale of Despereaux for free today. I love that movie; it's just a feel-good family movie that's really cute. After that we went to Downtown Melbourne to a book shop and a thrift store.... I'm trying to find anything that can be used to make an ATC (artist trading card). Yeah... I've decided to delve into THAT now :D. It looks like So much fun, though! Have you ever seen one? It's a small piece of art. It can be anything at all. It's up to the person making it! Anyway, I am a member of swap-bot.com and I see ATC swaps all the time and I have really wanted to join one. I got my very first ATC card in my very first swap-bot swap (Newbie swap #4). Anyway... so while browsing swaps on the site today, I saw a Pirate vs Ninja ATC swap! So I knew I had to join. And, I did. So now I have to create my very first ATC cards. One is Ninja themed and the other is Pirate themed :D. I dunno though... sometimes I wish I lived in a big city... I browsed lots of things and didn't find anything that looked like it would do well on an ATC. I can never find vintage or cool ephemera either.
Anyway, I got some stuff though... a few Rolling stones magazines... National Geographic.. some decks of cards to create the ATCs...
Oh and I got a box of fiber so I can learn how to spin it into yarn! I would like to give a shout-out (that my millions of followers will hear right lol) to spinspanspun.etsy.com for the awesome bits of fiber! Now I have plenty of little bits to mess around with while trying to get the hang of spinning.
I'm still debating on posting a free crochet pattern of the day/week. I would like to get some followers before I start posting so I know what people would like to see.... otherwise I;m just gonna post things I like, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
Alright well I'm going to watch Ghost Hunters and finish working on a baby blanket I've been working on lately. Bye!
