Almost Ready to Go

I have been scanning artist trading cards as they have arrived for the 6 Degrees Pocket Change event. As I have mentioned before there are packages arriving from around the world. American participants send a stamped self addressed envelope with their cards, but the international group send ephemera from their home countries. It has been a delight to see what has arrived from Australia, Canada, Italy, India, New Zealand. The papers, stamps, images, old magazines, ribbons, fabrics, I could go on and on.

Meanwhile I have continued to create my own cards.

Restore
Restore
For Keeps
For Keeps
Pray

Joy
Joy

This card has a double meaning for me as Joy is my mother’s name as well as one of the most wonderful words created.

On the back of an ATC artists put their contact information and often the title of the little piece. I needed a way to display this information.  So I looked at my business cards, they are sorely out of date lacking the address of my new blog and no mention of my Beth Rommel Studio facebook page. (You are invited to go to that page and if you want you are welcome to “like” it. Is that shameless commerce or what?) So I created a new card for that purpose.

Ephemera for ATCs
Ephemera for ATCs

Maybe you will be receiving one of these in the mail. Actually any of the ATCs contributed will delight you. The love and goodwill sent to my door is a beautiful reflection on the true meaning of pocket change, a little something to make a positive change. They are almost ready to go.

  1. I think that the build up is as much fun as the actual exchange itself! So much change for the good is in the air! That said–I’m so looking forward to seeing the cards:-)

  2. I am getting super excited, Beth. This was so much fun…and now I can’t stop making ATCs. I even made them yesterday while I facilitated a group … and then gave each of the participants one that I had just made! LOL They thought this was pretty neat. Did I say thanks? Can’t say it too many times. Thanks!!!

    1. You are so welcome Susanna, it has been a lot of fun for me too. I am sure your group really appreciated the cards! I am thinking of making some atcs for a conference I am going to instead of new business cards. Yikes I better hurry.
