Did Picasso work to a deadline?!

Looking for My sneaky followers bonus giveaway

What a weekend...
Generally I don't work to any deadlines, My memory was Chemoblasted!
So thank goodness for friendly email reminders that tell me to get my butt in gear and finish up projects I've committed to!

I joined a swap program recently as Jax really loves mail!
She gets a little put out when all the packages that arrive are full of fabric and supply goodies intended only for mama! So now she is receiving postcards, and stickers and all sorts of fun things from around the world. Of course that means Mama has to comply with the swap rules and get things in the mail on deadline.

Having been busy all week with the May Giveaway I was gently reminded that I had joined up for a butterfly ATC (artist trading card) swap. Eeeeeek! Whip up some art?! I literally haven't pulled out the paints and used the ol' artistic noggin in months! So I decided to do a bit of mixed media to keep it simple. Jax and I had fun making some shrink art butterflies and using some fun salt on wet watercolour techniques. Not sure what thrilled her more, sprinkling salt or getting to play with Mama's Good Art supplies!!!? Though admittedly not my most artistic endeavor to date, however we had fun making them and hope our recipients enjoy them as much.

Now off to stalk the postie!

I have never participated in a ATC swap, but it seems like great fun! You and Jax did a beautiful job! I'm sure whomever receives them will be thrilled!
