A little of This
A little of That

There has been a lot going on around here lately....  Demo Day is a monthly thing....  Guest teachers are becoming a regular adventure ....  and then there are swaps...

Our most recent swap adventure was the Santos Doll Swap.  Here's a collage of the results.... 

 You'll be able to see the individual photos later in the My Heart's Fancy Facebook photo albums.  There are also albums of other swaps we've done in the past.

Current Swap

We've got a Halloween Swap right now.  You can nab the photo below for info and the template if you want to participate.....

Just right-click on the photo & save it or print it full size.  It's cropped for 8-1/2 x 11 so it should print the correct size.  If it doesn't print out right, the tombstone is approximately 5" tall.  There are no rules, in general, but I do ask that you use Halloween as your theme and that you have fun.....  seriously, no requirements other than that.  Use whatever supplies you want and use whatever paper, card stock or cardboard you want (I like to use cereal boxes, cuz I have a plethora of those). 

If you're from out of town and want to participate, just mail your swaps to the store.  Email me for the mailing address and to let me know that they are on the way.  The deadline is Saturday, Sept 6th.  They will be ready for pick-up on Saturday, Sept 13 (I'll return out-of-town swaps by mail at my expense). 

Hope you'll join in one of our swaps.  We do them for most major holidays, and a few random ones here and there.....

That's it for now..... Until next post.....
Happy creatin'!
