and this is what i received...

in the previous post i showed the ATC 's i made and sent out
for the     Reduce  Reuse  Recycle    theme
and this is what i got in the mail in trade .

 we all used this and that and parts and paper and fabric and you name it ,
we use it. feathers, and game parts, stamps, ribbons, metal, clay, cheese cloth, rickrack, leaves, buttons, sequins, used food packaging and  paint and glitz. even stuff sent in the mail as advertisements got  used. one was even fragrant!
 all into a 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inch size little art card.

a good exercise for creative brain power improvement is to look around and see  old stuff or  ready to toss stuff in a new light. how you put it together is your latest story .
instead of using a  regular envelope, i cut apart a beautiful quilt calendar from 2005? folded and sewd around my out going cards. and that's the rest of my story, today!
