Card Catalog

5 Aug

Though more than anything this is a pen pal-friendly blog, in addition to posting about happy mail, I have also posted about many an ATC (Artist Trading Card). There have been two kinds of ATCs I have shared the most over the past couple years, and I affectionately call them Little Cards and Change Cards. Little Cards are the ATCs I swap based on monthly themes via a FB group I run; Change Cards are the ones I leave as random acts of kindness on behalf of ATC the Change.

A month ago I wrote about my decision to start posting these ATCs together in lieu of them continuing to have separate entries, and today is the (belated) first installment! Please bear with me as I figure out the best way to format this new series– not only do I have two months worth of catching up to do regarding Change Cards, I only have May’s Little Cards in full.

MAY

Little Cards:

May’s theme was The 60s/70s, and this is what I said about it when I first announced it:

My train of thought for this theme was like this: April showers brings May flowers. Well, we just did Agriculture and we’ve done Spring before, too. Hmm… Oh, I know, the hippie era! Not that you have to do anything with flowers or even with hippies. If there is something from either the 60s and/or 70s that calls to you, by all means use that as your inspiration!

Four of us were called to make ATCs per this theme– those shoes were just a bit on back order 😉


JUNE

Change Cards:

I didn’t make any Change Cards in June, but I did leave the four below as well as another five:

Little Cards:

As I mentioned above, I do not have June’s Little Cards in full as I’m still waiting to receive Vikki’s contribution. What I will tell you, though, is that the theme was “School Spirit” and there were three of us that participated/are participating.


JULY

Change Cards:

I made at least 20 Change Cards last month– a dozen of them were these snail mail-friendly ones:

I left 14 ATCs when I was with my mom on the 11th and 12th, and 9 when I’ve been out and about with the boys, mainly on our vacation up north.

Little Cards:

Like with June, I am one contribution away from being able to share July’s haul because they have yet to arrive from The Netherlands. In the meantime I will tell you that July’s theme was “Under the Sea” and there are six of us participating.


AUGUST

If it wasn’t for our recent vacation to the U.P., this post would have happened on the last Wednesday of July, so this is not the time or place for any August ATCs just yet. Hopefully come August 29th, however, I will have all of the missing Little Cards and maybe all of August’s, too. Just so you know, the current theme is Autumn and there are five of us participating.


If you have any suggestions for the Card Catalog between now and then, don’t hesitate to share them with me. In return, I will be sure to share whatever ATCs August has in store for me between these two endeavors of mine.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~
