Project Log 8

PROJECT NAME: ATC Artist Trading Card

MATERIAL: Scratch paper (for card stock back ground and words cut from the back) obsolete stickers, Extra Fine Brown Sharpie, Post it Flag, Fine Silver Sharpie, glue stick, orange and purple paper tape.

DATE: June 23& 24, 2008

GENERAL NOTES: A new book arrived at the library 1,000 artist trading cards : innovative and inspired mixed media ATCs by Patricia Bolton. I hadn't heard of ATC's before, but having a collection of baseball cards, and a liking for paper crafts, I was interested! I also told a co worker about this and she too was interested and requested the book. So while I was bored one day (not at work of course), I put together this card and sent it to my co-worker.

Project Log 7

PROJECT NAME: Cozy Crocheted Capelet

YARN: Sensations Rainbow Classic Yarn- Bright Multi

HOOK SIZE: ? I don't remember probably what ever the pattern called for.(I guess I'm going to have to be better at this if I'm going to blog about it!!)


GENERAL NOTES: Darlene made me a capelet from a pattern she found on Joann's website and I thought it would be good for my friend Gayle who was going through Chemo. I've worn mine a lot with the chilly spring we've had plus while I was donating platelets.
This really was a fun project, easy to do, I really like the Sensations Rainbow yarn, it's pretty and fuzzy and looks nice. It's available in lots of varigated colors.
Darlene made mine out of Homespun, which is very soft not quite as easy to work with, but I don't mind it.
