I've been busy working on some atc's for my monthly local atc swap. The swap is held the first Saturday of every month. This time we had to make 25 atc's. So many people have joined that we were told not to tell anyone about the swap because we could not accept any new people. The store owner allows some of the swappers to send their books in and still swap even tho they can not attend the meeting. I have mixed feelings on this practice.
I can understand this partly because we are in a part of Florida that has a large population of part time residents. We call them snowbirds. These are people who have duel residency. Part of the year they live up north. During the winter they live here in Florida. Some of these people will be returning in the winter and then they will participate in the monthly meeting, I am assuming this of course because I have only been going to these swaps for a couple of months. And at this point who knows if I will still being going to the meetings myself in the winter.
I go to these meetings because it is the only time I get a chance to get together with other arty people. I'm not just there to trade atc's. And to be perfectly honest I rarely even look at the atc's once I have them In my possession.
The picture above is only a small selection of my swap atc's. The theme this month was animals or pets. I decided to do birds. I was going to add some kind of text to them. What do you think? Do they need some text. I really think text is over rated sometimes.
Thanks for stopping by!
