Hi! I'm a New Englander (or, as we say, New Englandah) living near the ocean on Cape Cod. I started doing ATCs a couple years ago and have become happily addicted. I enjoy other craft swaps too. I'm a member of New England ATC+. We gather monthly and swap on 2-3 themes a month. If you live within a couple hours of Boston, check us out on meetup.com.

Hello, went to the PO yesterday and picked up my box of flora. Thanks! I've already started sketching. Is on of the pieces honeysuckle? It smelled like it. Anyway, I'm working on your ATC. Enjoy your week! Adriann
