My First ATC

Saturday, February 19, 2011

I got laid off from my job and I'm torn. I'd like to be worried and a little freaked out but I'm not. I'm somewhat concerned but I'm really happy. My supervisor (who also happens to be one of my older cousins) said to me "when one door closes another opens." So we'll see what happens. He also said this would give me time to work on plans for my upcoming wedding and I suppose that's true but I have some other projects I'd like to do. Like quill, work on cards and get that Pooh Clock made for another cousin's baby that's due in the next couple of weeks. I have lots of things to do. Now to figure out how to finance it without me having to get a 9 to 5 leave the house job.
I've worked from home for several years now and I like it. It allows me to get lots of things done that would never get done otherwise. So we'll see what happens.

In the meantime I've been learning things. Below is a photo of my first ATC.

It took me forever to get this done and thank goodness for the tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers. The coolest thing I think I learned is that while glitter glue is pretty it doesn't always dry the way it looks when it's wet. So in this photo it my look like the sparkly frosting on the cake is puffy dimensional, but it isn't, it dried flat.
This was an awesome Wedding Cake dig-stamp I picked from The Digichick Shop and the background paper is from The Sweet MatT Stack from DCWV. I love those guys. well this is it for now, there will be more to come.
