Back to Creating and it feels good . . .

It feels good to get back into my art room and create again.

It's been a hard month. Our family lost a dear young man beginning of the month. My youngest son joined the AF with him and both my sons have been life long friends with him. Tragically he was killed while home on leave in a car accident.

So we have begun to move forward, but will miss him a lot.
I had a few projects I needed to get done and sent out. This one is in my partner's journal. It's a tribute to the end of summer.

Enjoy what is left of it . . .

Here are some pictures of a regular vinyl binder I covered with scrapbook papers and mod podge. I painted the inside back cover before adding some mail art type collage material. I use the binder to showcase my ATC collection. I don't make these much anymore. I may join a swap or two this winter on the yahoo group I belong too. I have ATC's from all over the world. It was my introduction into mail art and swapping. I have participated in altered book & art journal round robins, partnership art journals, swapped art tags and much more. I think I get alot of inspiration when I am involved in swapping. Deadlines encourage my muse somehow.
