Award

Thank you Daisie for this award, such a lovely start to my week! I want to pass it on to Pink Petal Designs who is organinsing a swap which I'm currently working on. This will be my first ever swap and I'm nearly loosing sleep over it. my partner Sara makes LOVELY things and I'm a bit nervous abot letting her down. Feels a bit first-date-ish!

Just to clarify a bit on the ATC/ACEO thing. ATC stands for Artist Traing Card and are meant to be swapped or just given to be nice. they measure 2.5" x 3.5" and are not meant to be sold. They can be in any medium. (Yes Terri, that little paper thingamy I sent was an ATC!) An ACEO is Art Card Edition or Orginal. These are new to me but as far as I can see they are the same size as ATCs and are sold. I guess the danger is that something that was made and swapped in the good faith of fellow crafters could then be sold on. My resolution is that I will make small pieces of textile art but I will make them slightly larger than ATC size (say 3"x4") and then there can be no confusion. I will make sure any ATCs I make are labelled as such on the back.

Hi Jenny. Tried to e-mail you but it won't work for some reason. thanks for that comment. It is hard and I get fed up sometimes but I truly wouldn't want to be doing anything else, especially not any thing involving chip fat!!

Thanks for that, I've been wondering what ATC/ACEO's were short for. Now I know!
