Swap Joy

This is an affirmation ATC, the words behind are very loving and supportive of relationships. I have two wonderful sisters, and this ATC is about my younger sister.


I am relatively new to blogworld and swapworld. I began earlier this spring. I didn't even know what a blog was in February! Now I know that and more, like how to make an avatar, how to create your own signature, how to post photos, I have even learned how to edit in Photoshop! All this new information and more has really broadened my life experience! It has even whet my appetite to keep learn and go further.... oh, I have some fun things planned...

One of the things I am really enjoying and am so thankful for is SWAPS! I have met many wonderful artist because of swaps. Another benefit I value is that I try things I would have never done, I really love that part! I sometimes wish I hadn't signed up for so many at a time!!! But, I haven't done a swap I regretted, and learning to meet deadlines hasn't hurt me a bit. In fact, it has given me more confidence in myself. Wooohooo!

Here are images of two recent swaps....one is a fashion cuff I did for Marie Antoinette Mail Art. The other is a ATC for the monthly lottery over at Paperwhimsy. Both of these forums are filled with magnificent people who love crafting beautiful things, and the forums give them plenty of inspiration to do so!

So thank you MAMA and Paperwhimsy and all the other swaps I have participated in! Thank you lovely artists who have swapped with me!


I was trying to take a photo of the cuff and my two little ones decided it was a photo op! They insisted on being in the picture. So here they are....Betsy and Emma, two good eggs!

Hi Terri,
I am taking my photoshop lessons over at Electic Academy here is the link
http://www.eclecticacademy.com/
My instructor is Sara and any of her classes are great. You have to do basic 1 and 2 before you can take any of her other classes but they are great. New session starting in Sept.

Your cuff is gorgeous too Terri, you make such beautiful things and I didn't know you had just entered this blog world so recently, it's fun isn't it?

Terri said...

Thank you Debbie, I am definetly interested!
Thank you too for coming over and visiting.

Thank you Karen! I had never heard of a cuff before this swap either!
If you do a search for "fashion cuffs" you can find some really amazing ones.

Terri said...

Oh Thank you Lynn!

So you have a little one too? Wonderful! Yes, their little beards are so sweet. Have you posted his photo on your site yet? I will have to go see.

LOVE these doggies and the cuff! Congrats on your recognition on Paper Whimsy-found that by accident. What a cool site.

Oh, Betsy and Emma are darling! I used to have a little Yorkie named Digby. Sadly, he was hit by a car--it broke my heart and I still think of him. I LOVE what you did with the beautiful cuff, and the ATC is absolutely wonderful--very vintage and sweet!!!!!!!
