Instant Art Collection

Remember those 12 "froggie" ATCs I made a while back? They were for Kimberly's Fabric of Nature Swap. 
Well the swap has concluded and a lovely package arrived at Maple Hill on Friday.
There were ATCs on their own, some packaged sweetly and others with a few little extras like buttons.
Each are their own piece of art...
...and I suspect very much reflect the styles of the makers
Kimberly has asked we share how we plan to display our new art collections..
I do know what I will be doing - it just so happens I recently found a perfect old book will take a little time but I envision a wonderful journal to house them all in. Stay tuned. Jewels


  1. Hello Jewels,
    You have created a lovely post about our little swap! It all looks gorgeous and I am sure your book will be wonderful to look at. I too, was thinking of book form. But I haven't decided yet...still thinking it over : )
    I absolutely love the ATC I received from you. I just love your frog theme.

  2. You and your talented friends are turning out just beautiful things, Julie! Everything is so well thought out and so wonderfully executed. A very talented and clever group!! Fun to look at all the great art on your blog! Carol
