Favorite ATC's Revisited & Repurposed


I found this 7 Gypsies Frame at Archivers the other day. What a great way to display seasonal ATCs! I have a huge collection from years of swapping, hidden away in binders in my studio, and I rarely take the time to look at them anymore. Such beautiful artwork. The light bulb went on when I found this frame. I dug out those binders, and found 12 Valentine-ish ATCs, and they are now proudly on display in my kitchen! It adds such a punch of color to my kitchen and I just love it! I've already chosen 12 Spring/Easter ATCs to replace them with next month. I went back a few days later and purchased the 7 Gypsies metal carousel style stand for ATCs as well. (with a little help from my 30% off coupons and a Christmas gift card from my husband!) I've been busy filling that up with even more of my treasured ATCs. I've placed the carousel on a side table in my dining room so they can be enjoyed as well.

If you look closely, you might just see one that you made! Anyway, I am so excited about this, I wanted to share it. (I got the typical "oh yeah mom, that's nice" from my family, but I knew YOU would truly share my excitement!)

Linda, What a fabulous use for these frames! Absolutely beautiful work you do. I am such a fan! Elizabeth I am pairing individuals in our swap, and I thought you might enjoy Lizzie of Buttercream and Roses. You both have such an elegant style to your paper art.

This is a great idea! We don't have an Archivers near here so I will have to hunt one of these babies down! Thanks for sharing.
