We have one single son, a married son ,a lovely daughter-in-law and their daughter , and our lovely daughter and her five beautiful children. We also have a beautiful orange cat named Garfield and a beautiful calico cat named Patches. I was a clown several years ago and my name was cocoa. I thought it made a good swap name. I have been on disability for 18 years. I have cervical disc disease and back problems. I belong to the Paper Doll Red Hats. I handle bookings and music when my husband sings. He sings Country & Southern Gospel.

Comment: Jackie---I love your ATC--it is SO MUCH Tim Holtz and it perfect for my style as well. I love vintage school images that go back to the old one room country schools. If we'd lived on the other side of the country road where our rented farm was, we'd have go to a one room country school! As it was, the closest town had a population of 367, so at school we had 3 grades in each room. In 7th grade we had only 3 students, counting me! Thankfully, my parents found a way out of that poverty by moving to a gigantic Iowa town of 12,000! I had 180 students in my high school class! Definitely a hug change. I also had not one, but two libraries available to me! One at the high school and one for the city. The other little Nebr. town had a library--nothing but dusty OLD books that were not appealing to me. Today, I'd give anything to go back and find those books as I might have found some classics in early or even first editions. The last 2 or 3 years there, they began ordering books from the State Library. I waited so excitedly when I knew a new box should be arriving soon. I'm not certain whether anyone else ever used them as I was always alone when I picked out my books. The little girl on your ATC would probably have been reading those classics as new books rather than dusty, musty books I didn't want to touch! Thanks for a beautiful ATC! Thanks also for joining the swap!

Comment: Thanks for a pretty August ATC definitely fitting an August backyard in the North! Our flower gardens are looking rather weary and drained from the last months of dreadful heat. We've had a spell of rain every day once or twice and in plenty of inches! That's given plants fresh drinking water and cooler, cloudy days to refresh themselves a bit. In a couple more weeks I MUST get roses cut back as they are really getting gangly and leggy. I didn't want to cut them back in the worst of the heat and humidity. I also need to get back to cleaning out weeds and spreading of plants we want to keep under control and not let them keep spreading. Some, however, we want to spread as they a beautiful ground cover. Stay creative and curious, to quote T Holtz, Peggy

Comment: Jackie, thank you for a very nice and clearly Tim Holtz! Every bit is from his products and techniques. I almost did a plane or car trip for June but ended up doing the beautiful flowers that are at their very best without evidence of heat and drought distress later in July and August here in the Houston area. Getting to 100 and 85% humidity is pretty standard here from mid-to-late April off and on and then standard from May through sometime in Oct. or sometimes not until November. We rarely get below 78-80 overnight here and the mornings are usually 90-100% humidity. Hope your heat and humidity don't last that long! My first summer down here amazed me---I thought it would NEVER end! and once school started in mid-August, the pool was closed! A LOT of us at home moms would've used it every day until late October, but they couldn't find life guards as they were usually high school and college students who also went back to school. Thanks for a great swap! Happy creatively making items for future swapping! Thanks also for joining the swap. I cannot quite figure out why so few people participate! PeggyO

Hey there!

I wanted to start an art journal but have NO idea where to start or what to do. So, instead of taking the journey alone, I started a group.

The threads are just FILLED with tutorials, videos and illustrations.

I will also be having a WEEKLY challenge. Whereas I will post a picture of a journal page and the members will recreate it in their OWN image.

This is this weeks image;

This isn't a swap group. It's more of a show and tell type group. By the end of the year you will have a nice, thick art journal. With all YOUR own work in it.

If this sounds like something you'd like to do, hop on over and join the group~ CLICK ME

Hope to see ya there.
