What has Crowabout been up to??

 Hello again! It has been a while since I have created a blog post! Thought it was due time!

Here is what I have been up to!
In the above photo from (left to right) A large mail art envelope made from a shipping box I got in the mail from someone, then right next to it in the middle back is an altered vintage base ball card binder which I now use for all my ATC's that I create! In front of it is a Snowman card (green border) I made for me to print off my own holiday cards! On the far left is my newest art journal created from an old 'How To' fix things around the house type book. The Snowman card I made for me to print off my own holiday cards! The smaller snowman card is for something I cannot say right now haha, then lastly 2 mail art postcards!
My studio is super colorful and full of yummy stuff right now! Total eye candy! I suppose I should get a photo of that! ;)

Then in this above photo is an altered box in which I also received stuff in the mail! It will go out this next month to a very special friend in Canada! A friend, in which we are both cooking up a little something fun and will be announced soon! 

Back to my studio and play some more!

Be creative!

Fun Triptych ATC Swap with....


How about an ATC swap?

I sure am ready!

The lovely and talented Denise Phillips of Birdnuts Mixed Media is 
the lovely hostess for this swap!

Being able to Co-Host this swap is so much fun! We had a blast Co-Hosting swaps in the past! 

It has been a little while...Denise had not been feeling up to par for some time. :( And now, well she sounds
as chipper as ever! So darn happy about that she is doing better and ready to play again!

Here is how the swap goes:
The Theme is....
2 Sets of Triptych ATC playing card
in the way of, the first card will have a persons/animals face, the second the torso and lastly on the third card legs and feet/shoes so that when put together you make a picture! (please follow link to Denise's blog to see photo of the triptych cards she made, she has made a few sets...

Aren't they cool?!
I see that she turned her cards to the side to make it easier to mix and match faces, body's and legs/feet! A shorter distance to go! Pretty clever that girl, that Denise! ha! 
The first set you create goes to Denise and the second gets swap with another participant! 
And if you use Crowabout StudioB graphics in your ATC's for this swap...
you get to double your chances in winning!!!
The winner will receive a $25.00 coupon to scoop up some goodies in my Shoppe!
For the complete set of rules and how it all goes please visit Denise at 

She is much better at explaining things than I! Thank you Denise! ;) Love ya girl!

Now, I better get busy with my own triptych card sets! 
I will post them as I get them done! 
Ooo! I think I will make envelopes too! Woot!
Love and Light,

Eye Candy and My Youngest Graduation


**Update below (added in credits...bows head shamefully) ;)

Had more computer issues and the last tech that came to my house found the issue! There were
a few items in my house causing interference with my computer and would cause it to lag and limiting my web activities! 

Always something isn't it?! 

I am back....again! I know I come and go a lot, lately all computer issues! Just to put your mind at ease, there are new kits/packs coming soon! 

For the moment, I am working on a deck of cards ala zetti style! I don't know about you but, when I want to create art for myself in my downtime, I like to use other peoples imagery! Like here, with Teesha Moores wonderful sheets! Never been able to resist her images! Don't get me wrong, I love my own imagery too! ;)

In the above photo, are the first set of cards, 9 in the grouping!

And here are the next 6!
 Many more to go! A whole deck will be created! It's a challenge for me! Especially working this small!

In other news!!

This beautiful darlin, is my youngest!

 She is being promoted from the 8th grade and moving into high school to continue her education!

I am a proud Momma! 

She has worked very hard this year! She had a little set-back but came shining through with better grades then I ever dreamed of having! 

Momma loves you Jess! Yes, Natima, Momma loves you too, ya silly thing! I will post piccys soon of the ceremony that commences on June 6th!

And this place,
 This is where the young lady wants to celebrate with family! Chinese food! Hope it is good! Never been there! Worth a shot though!

And more art to share!
 These three ATC's were created for Marion Bockelmann's annual swap!
This year the theme is "My Home Is My Castle"

And here is the envie (front and back) I created to send them little bits of art to Marion!
Thank you for being a lovely such a lovely hostess Marion!

**Update: Forgive me for not posting image credits! Oy!

In all works, for the most  part was, Teesha Moore A bit of Tim Holtz, a little bit of Tumble Fish Studio and a bit of Crowabout StudioB


It was great having you here to visit!
