A Recieved ATC Zentagle Day 5 and the Fall Fair

Okay so this post is a little late I guess I wrote it all up and forgot to post it.
 I got quite a lovely package in the mail the other day from Tennessee. It was an very beautiful butterfly ATC along with a very nice letter which I enjoyed reading very much. So anyway here is the ATC..
Such a lovely butterfly ATC  I love the use of the button for the caterpillar head and the gauze for the cocoon.
This ATC was so well packaged and the envelope it came in was beautifully decorated as well. The butterflies I sent out are here and the other butterfly I revived is here. I sent out an ATC for a fall swap and and am getting ready to send out some skeleton ATCs which I will wait to post on until they are received so if my recipients look at my blog it will still be a surprise.
   Anyway besides that I have still benn zentagling here is day 5..


and mom and I went to the fall fair and I of course stopped to see the animals..
poor little tuckered out goat I just love goats

I think this guy would have been happy to let me scratch his ears forever





I just love donkeys to


Here are some of the things in the art, quilting, garden section that I quite liked..
Rainbow eggs what?

a fairy garden

a mini garden filled with succulents

and a second fairy garden

Well that's it for now, thank you as always for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

New ATC's in the mail, zentangles and stamps.

I received my ATC's for the Halloween swap and the teacup swap the ATC's I sent are here, Here is what i got starting with the Halloween ones from Trisha in Texas (who actually has her own just wonderful blog here)...

So cute I wonder if she used dimensional magic to make the girl to pop.
and this one I love the ribbon and...
a close up of the little polymer clay charm she made.
along with the ATC's Trisha also sent 2 double sided charms which are just beautiful..
here is the first side I love the kitty

and the second side

and this charm says "Fall a season of falling leaves and hot apple cider, we give thanks"

and the other side
The teacup ATC came from Victoria Australia from Marion and I got...
this lovely ATC I just love the colors
Marion also sent..
this lovely card
some beautiful card stock I love the first one with the cherries

an Australia playing card which I thought was a wonderful idea

and some tea which I'm exited to try
Well those where my lovely packages I received, I just love doing this it's so much fun. Besides that   I've still been doing some zentangling here are some trees I did...


I also made some stamps...



I made them out of giant novelty erasers I got at the dollar store, you can get lino blocks at micheals but they're terribly expensive. If anyone is interested in how I made these let me know and I will do my best to explain.
   Well thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
