What Happened to August?

Oh Man! There may be another whole
week left, but this month has blown through
so fast!!!

As you know, I've taken the Month of August
off from the Wonderful ATC Swaps
here on Birdnuts Mixed Media...
although it doesn't mean I haven't been busy...

well, not all the time....(grin)..
(Thanks Oliver Howard for holding 
down the fort!) 

I did manage to get another Project Piece
done in my 
'Oh Deer' Collection:)

And a few ATC's just for the heck of it
out of some of the lovely papers and goodies
you Wonderful ATC Artists have been
tucking into your envelopes to me:)
( Thank you!!)

It was nice to take a little time just to make some
ATC's for the fun of it, and even a journal page or

But one thing I have made time for

I'm so happy to 
is that
I've Opened my 
Very First 
Etsy Shop!!!!

Woo Hoo!!!!

I've listed all sorts of my Projects in my 

And Big Thank You's to all of the 
Fabulous Well Wishes at it's Opening!!!

I'm having a Fabulous Time
making all sorts of Diverse Projects
for my New Shop:)

So Please Come by my New Shop 
and check out all the Goodies Listed:)

Just Winging It in my New Venture!!

And It's almost that Time of Year Again!!!
Can it be!!!
is coming!!!
Oh Man!

Make sure you go by 
see Kristin's Latest 
There's still time to Enter!!!

And on a Personal Note
This has also during my 
Time Off this month
been a sad one for my Husband and I 
and our little Zoo Family, 
as this month we lost a 
Dear Member of our Family
Mr. Ted 

He was Oliver Howard's Partner in Crime
although he came to us late in his life
and under sad circumstances,
he's been a Brilliant and Loving
and Loyal little Friend to me personally.
He was my Art Room Buddy during the
nights of Art Frenzy Insomnia
and I so miss his company:)
Loved ya Mr. Ted! 
And Miss You my Buddy:)

So it's almost September....
ATC Swap???
Let me know if you all are still interested
in my continuing the ATC Swaps as
with the Holidays coming I'm not sure
you all will have the time and interest?
Leave me a comment on this 
Blog Post and let me know 
what you think?
Also any ideas you might have
to 'spice' them up! GRIN.

Happy August:)

As you all know from the July ATC Swap,
I'm taking a little time off in August
to get on with a few Projects
I'm working on for this 
Fall and Winter Season.

As many of you know by
following me on Facebook,
I have a love for Journaling
and playing with paper.

So since I'm going to be off having
a bit of a break, I thought I would
leave you all with a bit of 
Eye Candy of some of my
journaling and tags and things
I've been playing with while
doing the ATC Swaps:)

Mini Moleskin Journal

Vintage Photo from my Private Collection

And I love using tags 
on my journal pages or
tucking into my journals:)

My Oh Deer Aunt Alice popping up
on a journal page:)

Dylusions Inks again with
a Debrina Pratt Cat graphic and
Tape Transfer Method.
A little Graphics45 stamping and
Lazier Paper Cut-cake, yum:)

Lots of fun doing this one with 
Graphic Chair from 
Assorted Stamps:)

A little pen work:)
And the butts of fish Lazier Cut-Outs from

Bits and pieces:)

For a House Tag Swap:)
Made a couple of these and they've
gone to live in both the Netherlands and
and Glasses:)
And Land of Nod Wonderful Girl:)

Another Land of Nod Wonderful Graphic:)

And a wee bit of Fall creeping in... HA!
Nancy Baumiller's Wonderful Graphics

So there's some of the bits and pieces
I've been working on over the past
couple of months:)
Have a few Projects coming up
in the near future so I'm looking
forward to this Fall and Winter
and of course
having the ATC Swap resume 
real soon:)

So hope you all are having
some Holiday and/or Vacation
Time this August!
And hope you all get
some great Art Time 
to boot!
And I'll be seeing you
real soon:)

Thanks Everyone!
