Happy New Year!
I wish the best of luck to everyone in this new year!
I feel bad when it comes to ATCs, though. I still owe several individuals ATCs. Some people have been waiting for over a year. I have apologized in previous posts and I will apologize again - I'm sorry. I have not have any motivation to create unique ATCs. As a matter of fact, my mail art and traditional art practices have taken a back seat to other activities and hobbies also. Maybe soon.
Call is Closed
I am no longer accepting ATCs for swap. You may still send ATCs and I will post them on this blog, but it is not definite that I will send an ATC back to you. I apologize.
I started this blog one year ago. At that time, I was unemployed - taking time off after returning from Iraq. A few months later, I decided to go back to work. That is when I started falling behind in returning ATCs to individuals that sent ATCs to me. To make matters worse, my call somehow made it into a magazine I never read before called, "Rubber Stamp Madness." That ad stayed in the magazine for a few issues, which happened to be during the time we were short on people at work and I was getting a lot of overtime. So I got even more responses and got farther behind.
One of the other problems I was having, was my want to return ATCs of similar quality of what I received. Some of the art cards I got were absolutely beautiful. I didn't think my cards were as good as what I was receiving, so I felt guilty.
I still owe several people ATCs and I will still send them out. I know some people have gotten a little upset at the amount of time it took for me to return cards. I apologize for that.
For the last month, I have been devoting a lot of my spare time to creating art on a larger scale for an International Art Show. I am almost finished with those pieces and will try to find some time to get more ATCs completed. I have a half dozen ATCs that I did a few months ago, so those will be going out soon, as well.
I will probably still do ATCs occasionally, but I'll stick mainly to mail art from now on.Thank you to everyone that has participated in my call over the last year!!
From Renee Zappa
I received two ATC from Renee Zappa a few months ago titled, "Beads" and "Spring Flowers". "Spring Flowers" is an ATC that can be transformed, which is shown in the third picture below.
I got knocked offline last week, but I am now back online. I've got some new ATCs to post. However, I need to get ready for work right now, so there should be something posted tomorrow. Thanks!
To Emily Townsend
Three ATCs - "Checkered Night Tree Line," "Fly Away," & ""Optical Cube Maze" - were sent to Emily Townsend in West Windsor, New Jersey, USA.
