arts & crafts

i volunteer to teach arts & crafts to school girls some friday afternoons. today was one such afternoon. i have been getting them started with artist trading cards (atcs). here are some pictures of my girls working. they are so creative:]

after they finished painting a picture, it was then cut into atc size.

my vintage suitcase where i keep all my atc supplies. loads of fun!

it was a great afternoon of painting, giggling, and listening to amelie music. the girls were all proud of their finished projects.

if anyone makes atcs & would like to trade, just let me know.


  1. Amazing! Lizzie's arm looks so pretty. :)

  2. How nice to teach something like that in schools! Lovely post! xx

  3. hey love, beautiful pictures. What are ATC's!?

  4. atcs are: 2.5" x 3.5" cards that are altered, collaged, painted, drawn, or whatever you feel like doing to them. anything goes! but you must have your name, title of card, & contact info on the back. also the should be able to fit into a sheet potector sleeve so don't make them to thick! the rule is that they must be traded not bought. check out this link for more info:

    hope this helps everyone:]

  5. Hey I see some of my atc's that I traded with you. (: I miss my atc's but at least it's in the hands of someone that likes my art (: haha. wow they are so creative!

  6. How wonderful! What a lovely idea. I'm sure it's a beautiful memory that will stay with all the girls.
