Aren't they gorgeous, love both breeds.

I am starting a new project...... journaling.  At least I am trying.   I am still owner of one group and on a couple of others, but nothing urgent.  Plus a free work shop by JennieBellie, love her work and blogs
I hope to improve my art work and do more with it.  I am working on a large Tim Holtz Journal, lots of pages.  Although my hand writing is not so good anymore as I have started to have a slight shakiness now, all do to age I am sure.  But I am going to write in it anyway.  I do have enough supplies and embellishments to last for ever, so I need to put them to good use, something I will keep and eventually hand down to family. 
Having started in it already with mostly stamps and different techniques I have done in the past. There is so much more I want to do in it.  Like I said..... large journal books, lots of pages.  Plus I do know how to do book covers and with The Cinch I can bind them.  And many more dies and not one but two machines to work them up.
I do love making cards, but for now I have put it on hold. Maybe later.
So now I am off to craft a bit and see comes up.

I do apologize for the look of these ATCs, but they have bumps on them and scanner was not good at taking this type.

One is very old and one is new.  These are the two ATCs I am sending to Faye in Florida.  The one on the right side is for "A" and it is animals.  They are for the Cards_MiniBooks_Alterable group I am in. 
These are two ATCs from Faye on the Cards_MiniBooks_Alterable group that I received. Aren't they cute!!!  This is a group I inherited from Sherry that just needed more personal time.  I now need to do my ATCs and send them to Faye.  I have my Pocket Pages all done and ready to mail, just have to wait for Garner to be off to take them to post office.  And then when Leida gets them and mixes them up, she will send back all the different ones to us.
