Spring ATC’s

It is a summery kind of Christmas when you get this kind of goodness in the mailbox.  The Spring ATC swap I joined at The Art of Altering is a swap with 3 other people.  My first exchange has arrived and what a fun surprise to unwrap this card from a LOT of fringy yarn.tied-card

After all the reveal, here is this adorable bird and nest from Dawn Burrows.  Hop on over to her blog to check out her awesome creativity.spring

She also included a bonus gift of these tags she prepared.  I’ll be using these soon.  Thanks Dawn.tag-gifts

The cards I sent out had a flower garden theme.


The art goodness happens after hours around here.  During the daylight, I’ve been gutting a building to be my official studio in the near future.  Fingers are crossed.  I’ve removed a lot of sheet rock and a bit more has to come down.more-sheetrock

This is a long shot of the room.  After all the sheet rock has been ripped out along with a truck full of dirt, dirt, dirt….I am now ripping off the support boards.  I just want the exposed rafters for now.rafters

Next on the rip out list is this bad boy.  There are Huge nails holding this one to the cinderblock.  UGH!  I want this moved to another wall .  It’s not in a very convenient place for the plan I have in mind.  Shelving storage is nothing to be taken lightly around here and there is nothing Light about this unit!  shelving

I keep looking at this mess as my workout program.  I have a stair climber with the ladder.  I use weights with my trusty heavy hammer and sledge hammer.  General aerobics are involved with the shoveling out broken sheetrock and loading trailers, etc., etc.  My arms have got to be more fit after this rip out project.  Phew, I’m tired just thinking about that workout.  I’ll take a break before I even go out to work some more.

Enjoy these spring days that are pleasant and I send prayers to those affected by all the horrific tornadoes.
