Teapots and Coffee

I finally finished my teapots for the "In the style of Mary Englebreit teapot" swap. I had a lot of difficulty keeping the edges as "clean" as I could. I am not the greatest when it comes to using an exact knife. The girls in the Sum of All ATCs group suggested sanding the edges and then inking which is what I did. I used an emery board instead of sand paper, which seemed to work better for me.
The blue one below and the red and yellow teapots were done using ME note cards that I cut up. I especially like the blue one.
The pink one below is very similar to the black one that I did first and posted on an earlier entry. Now I have to make the cover that will be mine to use to put together a book when I receive the teapots from others in the group.
I won the cute pink coffee cup sleeve in a giveaway from Her Art Nest. Nancy is a fabulous artist who also likes to knit. Check out her blog to see her art work and knitting. She has a beautiful sweater on there that she made for her granddaughter.

Teapot in the style of Mary Englebriet Swap

This is what I am working on today. I have to make four teapot to swap and one for myself as the cover of the chipboard book. I am behind in my swaps as usual, so I hope to find time to get at least two made today. This swap is for The Sum of All ATCs yahoo group which is hosted by Valerie Brinchek.

Haiku 6x6 cards

I was in a Haiku swap, that had to have an oriental background. Above and below are the two cards that I made. I used a Haiku generator to help me "write" my two poems. This swap was a lot of fun, and the two that I got back were just terrific. So much so that I wish that I had made more than two.
On a different note if you live in the Detroit area you might like to visit, and click on her blog. Emily the owner of the business is a great photographer and just recently took pictures of Sarah, who is now 17 months old. Of course, she is my granddaughter so I am prejudiced, but the pictures are beautiful
