Pugsly & my 1000th ATC

I started this Round Robin with the Pug, Tandy added bowls and doghouse and MissM finished it all beautifully with the fence and background.

Round Robin is a set of 3 ATC cards that are worked on by 3 artists. The first player starts the set with a certain theme, the 2nd player adds to it and the 3rd player finishes it. Then each gets to keep one card for their collection.
This fluffy little pooch was a personal trade and my 1000th ATC. Ok, I cannot claim my count is accurate since I don't count Round Robin cards but I number all my ATCs (excluding round robins) and officially this card is numbered as #1000.

Weird selection

 Random ATCs for a Pick-a-Theme swap.

I'm selling my old car because we don't need three cars at the moment and because it needs fixing which means spending more money than it's worth.

I don't like selling cars. Well anything really. It's just nerve wrecking and time consuming.

I don't like talking to strangers apparently. I guess I go through fazes where I can be outgoing and then not so much. I'm in the not so much faze right now. Do you ever feel like not talking at all? Like I can carry a conversation in my head but I don't feel like speaking.

My parent are getting bad hearing as they age and it's annoying me when I have to repeat myself. I have to practically yell at my dad so he can hear me and then he gets annoyed because I'm yelling at him. That's fun.

But with my mom it's like she doesn't pay attention or she automatically says "what?" when she's spoken to. So I get annoyed even before I speak to her because I know I'll have to repeat myself. Sometimes I resort myself to grunts so I get her attention and then speak to spare my energy.

That's why I have conversations in my head because out loud is just annoying and I exhaust myself even before I open my mouth.
 Yes, that's a diaper on his head. :) Look how grown up he looks.

Glitter accents



Usually PATs are straight forward swaps. In a group of five players each chooses a theme the others draw an ATC on for them. But this time the hostess decided we should also include glitter in some way in gold or silver.
Randomness:
  1. It already feels like autumn here. The sun is hot during the day but nights are chilly.
  2. We visited Zbilje lake on the weekend and we fed swans. The kid was very good at the whole sitting still in the boat thing. 
  3. I signed up for a moley group. Moley is basically passing around an art journal of sorts (a small one) between 10 players and each doing a 3 page spread on a chosen theme by the owner of the journal. I'll be showing this in the future but for now I only did sketches. I need to put my butt in gear though because I need to send it out on Sept. 1st. Each player has the journal for a month to work on and then sends it on to the next player. 
  4. The mailing costs went up this month. It's ridiculous how expensive it got to mail abroad.

Flowers

I don't like drawing flowers but others like them so I had to draw a few. I think it would be better if I used acrylics but I can't be bothered for such a tiny scale as an ATC. (2,5" x 3,5")

The kid turned 18 months on Tuesday. It's such a cliche to say time flies but it really does. :) He's gotten so big. He had his 18 months check up and all is good. We also had an appointment at bioresonance therapist to check for any allergies he might have.

He has allergies to lactose, chlorine, hazelnuts and hazel tree, tomato, grass, dust mites and cats. It shows as ruff and bumpy skin on his legs and cheeks and he sneezes since he was born. First they told me he sneezed because his lungs were clearing but he never really stopped. I sneeze a lot as well and I suspect dust mites.

And of course he reacts to additives in food. If I give him just a regular chocolate, he gets red blotches around his mouth immediately. If I give him raw vegan chocolate bar, he's totally fine.
 
Here he is helping Dad shave his head. :) We're lucky he's not afraid of the buzzing sound and he lets me cut his hair, too. That little bold spot is from him using his granddad's electric shaver on his head. :)

Pick-a-Theme

Pick-a-theme or PAT is an ATC swap where you choose a group according to the medium you'd like your card to be then choose a theme for the other 4 players to make your card on. You make a card for each player on their chosen theme and in return you get 4 cards on the theme you chose from 4 different players. The themes were: four leaf clover, self-portrait, hummingbird and sheep.
vegan ice-cream
It's very hot here with an occasional summer shower. We're having ice-cream, playing in the kiddy pool and running around naked. :) The kid, not the adults. That would be traumatizing for the passersby. (I had to look that word up)
