Time Management

I haven't posted anything that I've done in a long while. And going through my camera I found some ATC's that I made and swapped and I thought I would post. I'm a little leery about this, kind of bragging isn't it? Well, just putting it out there, either way.

Supernatural ATC-Castiel Swap
 This is an ATC I did for a Supernatural series swap. I need to work on my photos, but this is a Castiel character ATC, an angel, who in his true form is larger than the Chrysler building.
I added those elements, made a "tattoo" with wings and the word Angel in script and added the caption, moveable by grommet.

Frida Kahlo ATC
This one is a Frida Kahlo ATC that I swapped. I didn't know much about her before I joined the swap but learned quite a bit, even that I missed a art exhibit here in town of her work. I would have enjoyed seeing this now that I know more about her. Very colorful and vivid artwork she did. It was a great learning experience. 
Halloween with pumpkin ATC
This last one I will show is a Halloween (my fav) ATC. The orange in the background is fishing lure chenille that I got at the sporting goods store on sale for .88. Fun to work with and doesn't get 'furry'. Unlike this distraction:
Here stands Brrr. Her real name not important, since the only sound she makes is Brrr. But she is everywhere I am and constantly on the lookout for the other one following me:

Yes, Roxy the boxer on a pink rug (came with the house, Help! I need a makeover!)
So important points. Always photograph your work. One it helps show a progression in style, maturity, and you can look back on it and be glad that you can erase the images from the digi!
Second, don't be ashamed of your work. Someone once told me that no matter what, that was where I was at that particular time in my life. It wasn't wasted-it just brought me to the next point.. Thank you John for that advice.
So lovelies, I am signing off for now and wishing you creative thoughts.

Swap Bot

Well, here's my rant for the day.
I love Swap Bot and I'm very happy I joined. I have an outlet for my creative side and I get to share with others and also get to see their work. I will not criticize anyone's work and I am grateful for everything I receive in the mail, all the extras and stuff. I rate as soon as I receive something because that, to me, is part of the swap. Unfortunately, there are some people that, either do not think this is important to the other person, or they are selfish and choose not to rate, or what? I cannot think of a valid excuse for not rating someone's work. So for those people who do not rate, I have chosen not to swap with them any longer. And I hope someday they realizr the importance of the entire swap. And the people on the other end who want to know, we just want to know.
OK that's over. THE GIANTS WON!!!! And Zito pitched a fabulous game with huge support from Melky, Pagan, huge defensive plays by Crawford, and the entire team. Great job, guys!
Love you lots!

Los Gigantes

I am watching my SF Giants right now. It is Orange shirt Friday which I love. I should be doing some stufff for work tomorrow but I just don't want to. So, yes, I'll do it in the am. whatever. I am so done with work this week.
My Giants are winning 4-0 and Bum was on his way to pitching a complete game until Bochy just yanked him. The Giants are awesomeness and make me smile.
If you're a fan and do not already know about the Brandon & Brandon blog, check it out here. I love these guys, Geez, am I getting redundant. You know, I should just write a Giants blog and steal photos from the internet to post. I cannot say enough about them. Some people photo blog, I love to write about them, Anyway, here's the link to B&B:Brandon & Brandon You see, Bochy pulled Madbum and Casilla gives up a home run and now there is only a one run lead. WTF?
In other baseball news, J Santana pitched the first ever in Mets history no-hitter. HUGE! Love this kind of baseball. I see it in the Giants future...
2 more outs to go then I can pack it in. Timmy is hooded up again.  Who is he hiding from? Well, it could be freezing it SF, you know how the weather gets in summer. I think I should weat a name tag that says, Hi, I'm a Giants fan. Hey Bochy this torture has gone on long enough, He just gave up a double with one out. Dude, pull him and save this game for Bum!
Tumblr is a great sourcce for Ginats pics. Broken bat single. He sucks! 2 on 1 out. 9th inning. Let's go guys.
OK Javi is in. 2nd out. Runners on 2 & 3. We can do this! The crowd is up. Strike one. Javi throws, flies out to Pagan. Los Gigantos win and victory bump/shirts out by the trio.
4-3 Giants over Cubs. Bum wins.
Yeah. See you tomorrow,
