I Bring You Tidings Of Great Trade

In an effort to thin out my "stuff", I decided to start trading "stuff" I have collected that I know I will never use. In this particular case the trade of the 2 quilts square kits comes from the knowledge I have acquired over time that sewing is EVIL. My sewing machine is a diabolical device with a mind of it's own gathering dust in the corner. I am in awe of all the artists that can tame this instrument of EVIL. I salute you.

I traded the kits with
Sherry for A LOT of my favorite things: wonderful paper and ephemera for ATC's. Sherry generously sent many goodies that I will have so much fun creating with. The first is THE BEST VINTAGE AD I have ever seen:

It stops B.O. !!! What more could a girl want?? Sherry also include an adorable original ATC, ATC backgrounds (one of which I am working with now), rusty bits, lots of paper ephemera, an S diecut, along with piece of paper with a Philadelphia map.

Now how classy is that, being that my name begins with S and I am a hop skip and a jump from Philadelphia. Sherry took the time to personalize and beautifully package this trade, and for that I am grateful and humbled. My camera does not do it justice. Also included were two of Sherry's PUBLISHED articles teaching the accompanying artwork. Be impressed, be very impressed.

Thanks again, Sherry!

  1. Oh MY! I'm over here (in California) blushing and awwww-ing. I've never had a whole blog post dedicated to me. Now how cool/sweet is THAT?!

    You are very welcome Susan. I'm glad you got a kick out of that B.O. ad. That's a crack up huh?! I knew you would appreciate the humor of it all *hee hee*.

    Stop by - I'm having a Give-Away that ends tonight!
