Kate's Feb calendar, Feb tag swap and a 60s' theme atc

Here's a look at my calendar page for Feb in the Kate Crane gathering (only wish I could be there making it with her ) :)

I am continuing in an art book that I had started in art school so there is some gesso to start, acrylics , stencils and spray inks.  The days were punched with a square punch (inked up scrap paper I had).  On the bottom right is "the crafter" by Stampotique...I think she is making Valentines :) 
We can journal or draw something each day and wow..I think I lead a boring life sometimes!  lol  However, I am reading and watching ALOT of journaling stuff so it is fun! Doodling just like high school on your books...Heaven!



Below is my February tag for "Tee's" Altered tag-a-month swap.  If you havent checked out her blog = she has some really fun swaps goin on.

SPEAKING of swaps...I always try to be in the Bliss swap and this month I signed up for the "WTA" (winner take all) group...one random person in the swap is picked and everyone sends them an additional atc with the theme of their choice.  I won!  I recieved my first of a "stash" to come of "60s theme" atcs' lol  :) Yep...gotta love the 60s and early 70s! I got this cute atc from Marilyn...at Funky peacock studios  ...LOVE IT! 
 She said her first car was an orange VW bug...hey...closest I got to that was my best friend who I rode with to school...she had a baby blue one!  Thanks Marilyn !   TFL!
