A chronicle of the meanderings, false starts (which in retrospect, while sort of embarrassing turned out to be highly instructive), epiphanies, selective apathy (still evolving), wild mood swings, opinions (subject to frequent change), and life lessons of an inveterate dabbler (and her latest dabblings).

More Art Exchange Booty!

Just when I thought that was all she wrote, ANOTHER PACKAGE! This time from Traci Patena. She was all mysterious not enclosing a business card or anything but I Googled her and found her Etsy shop. And her blog. You can hide, but you can't...hide.

She sent me some nifty old-fashioned sort of Currier and Ives style Christmas coasters:

Now I have to buy eggnog--and rum--so I can use them. And some nice furniture. (Coasters are a bit laughable at our house).

She has some ultra cool stuff in her shop. Check this out, happy retro coasters!:

These are business card holders featuring Amy Butler papers:

These are "matchbook albums". I have no idea what you do with them (put your really tiny pictures in them?) but they're cute:

Check out Traci's shop and her blog!

Thanks Traci!!


  1. what a nice surprise!

  2. This is such a fun exchange and I have truly enjoyed seeing your goodies roll in. BTW, we have coasters in our house, some where.
