I'm so ready for 2018! I've had tooo much "life happening" and not enough "art happening" in 2017. My only New Year's resolution this time is to get back into my art and relax more. Anyone with me on this? Let's start 2018 off with a "New" atc swap. We will make 2 atcs each for 2 partners(4 cards total) based on the theme of "New"- ideas, thoughts, beliefs, hobbies, friends, etc. Your choice of materials and style. Have fun!!!

Sign up deadline is Jan 12, partners will be posted by Jan 14 and atcs should be mailed no later than Feb 2.

Girl, I am with you on that.  It's been so bad that I've actually had to put a reminder in my calendar to do 5 minutes of art a day and I can't even do that.  Eeesh.  

Please sign me up for the swap.

Hi everyone! Please add me in. I won't have my PO Box by then so address private : )

Hi Stacy,  I was glad to say goodbye to 2017.  I am in, I did not do enough art last year.  I need some new goals.  I am in.  Marion xoxoxo

I am in!!! I have so missed ATCs!!!! Truthfully I think I was overwhelmed when I tried to do an ATC exchange that was for a whole year.... Just too much pressure. Will have to limit myself to those with a beginning and an end!!
