digging in my garden today to plant some lily of the valley and found this! pretty sure its a toy gun, I have no idea how old it might be, its pretty heavy metal and its got some rust and crusty stuff on was pretty much sitting on the very top layer of dirt...I have not seen anything like it before and its definitely not new

one more thing i did today... this is the first page in my altered book journal....i will be adding one page a month for the next year

today is independence day!
Alex had to work all day so I got to play in my craftroom!! yah! I only had to take a break when he called me because he ran out of gas, right by the park where I was hoping to not go to today:
there is a big party in the park and everyone in town goes. I just felt like being a hermit today...

here are some artist trading cards (ATCs from here on out) I made, I am hoping to swap the 2 with the ladies in denver at the real life swap :) the other 4 are for a wonderful work of whimsy swap on I send 3 and receive 3, one is a hostess gift for the person doing the swap! I used rubber stamps, colored pencils, silver paint pens and silver embossing.... As you can tell, ATCs are my new obession, they are sooo fun to make. I have many different styles I like to make but I really
love love love vintage stuff. like the lady's faces on the reproduction fabric. The writing on the fairy ones are hard to read, the one says "defy gravity" because I was listening to the Wicked sound track today as I was crafting.
