Hail the Snail 2.31

2 Jul

June 17th: This entry is starting with something from my last one: the second to last batch of Little Cards per my Childhood Memories theme.

June 19th: The rest of the Childhood Memories cards came in plus a batch of Summer ones, and I got a couple postcards from Krista, too.

June 21st: All of the Pirate cards came in next, and so did these awesome goodies from Sarah (left) and my mom (right):

June 22nd: Finally some letters to mention, brought to you by the letter J since they were from Jody and Justine 😉

June 23rd: Joining my little reply pile were letters from Kayla and Sarah.

June 26th: And then came a letter from Ashley plus her Little Cards– the last of what I needed to make the Summer sets!

June 29th: I got another two postcards from Krista, this time from Vegas.

And since I didn’t post this on the 30th like I meant to…

July 1st: Another postcard came from Krista… that was sent with the ones from the 19th, lol. Better late than never, right?

I’m looking forward to what July has in store for me and the boys (both in the mail and out of it), because June was pretty good to us. When Logan hasn’t been busy camping or with things like the Summer Reading Program, for example, we’ve been to the movies, played putt putt, ate a LOT of ice cream, and even made stuffed animals.

Well, the boys are up (from their slumber party, hehe) now so I’m going to go. Remember, though: it’s always the small pieces that make the big picture!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Little Cards: May

22 Jun

Oh, you have no idea how happy and flat-out RELIEVED I am that I can finally share these Little Cards with you! Not one, but TWO batches from the Childhood Memory theme went MIA, so not only did their makers make new batches, I had to wait for them to arrive, hoping they wouldn’t get lost, too. Good news: they didn’t!

Childhood Memory:

Pirates:

I hope my fellow adventurers also feel like May’s Little Cards were worth their wait! I’m pleased to report that June’s themes have been going much more smoothly on my end– I should have the last batch of Summer ATCs any day now. With any luck I’ll be sharing those and the ATCs from Jenn’s Wizard of Oz theme with you very soon, and I’ll be announcing July’s sole theme in our Facebook group, ATCs: Little Cards on Big Adventures, even sooner!

Bon Voyage 😉
Sincerely, Kate ~!~

 

Little Cards: April

3 May

I actually had the following ATCs by the time April was over, but A) I wanted to give the other adventurers time to get their sets yet, and B) my minor OCD tendencies liked the idea of posting this exactly a week after when I shared my Little Cards from March, haha. Without further ado…

Bunnies:

Romantic Comedies:

This hobby is like a box of chocolates– you never know what you’re going to get! I’m excited to see what comes via our Childhood Memory and Pirates themes, and letting you see them, too, when the time comes! Happy May!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Hail the Snail 2.27

30 Apr

I almost forgot to post this post today, but better late than never, right?

April 15th: No mail to start off this mail call, but between seeing a bunch of my mom’s side of the family, and later animals at the Children’s Zoo, I don’t mind at all!

April 17th: Logan got a bunch of books from my mom while I got a Figi’s order from my dad and a couple letters from Sarah, too.

April 18th: Another book came for the Loganator, starring Biscuit! Woof, woof!

April 19th: A batch of Bunny Little Cards were waiting with Pablo for me.

April 20th: After a couple days without letters, I got a couple thanks to Jody and Sarah.

April 21st: While Pablo had another batch of Bunnies, Manolo had my Dr. Seuss set of Little Cards, a letter from Allison, and my latest stamp order, too.

April 26th: After several days without mail, Pablo hooked me up with another two batches of Little Cards, and Manolo hooked me up with another letter from Sarah.

April 27th: Sort of reversing from yesterday, I got one last batch of Bunnies but two letters from Sarah, haha. Oh! And there was also a letter from Jody.

April 28th: One of my Con/Dom gnomes from ages ago made it back home thanks to Othella.

April 29th: Last but not least in the mail this month was a Postcard from Wonderland, also thanks to Othella.

April 30th: The boys and I had quite the special delivery earlier– a visit from my dad! We’ll be seeing more of him over the next week or so, so you can expect some details come my next Hail the Snail post. You also can expect another Little Cards post soon since I have all of April’s now 😀 As always, I appreciate your patience and for reading this little blog of mine about little things that make me happy.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Little Cards: March

26 Apr

This morning it has been finalized that 5 of my fellow “adventurers” will be making ATCs reflecting a childhood memory, and 7 of us will be making ones in honor of the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie. While we make May’s Little Cards (and I continue to wait for the last of April’s to arrive), I thought I’d hold us all over with the sets from March!

Enchanted:

Dr. Seuss:

Quick shout out to Gabe for helping me with the burnt edges of my Lumiere ATCs in the first group! And in case you’re curious, the Green Eggs and Ham ATC in the second group is also my creation 🙂

Although I don’t have all of the Bunny and Romantic Comedy cards from April yet, I’d still like to say that this month marks a year and a half of Little Cards on Big Adventures! When Jenn and I made our group, I don’t think I really expected us to still be picking out themes come 2017, but now I definitely hope we have at least another 18 months of ATCs, hehe.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Little Cards: December through February

5 Apr

Much like with the postcards from yesterday, I have some catching up to do via Little Cards…

December:

North Pole:

Christmas Carols:

January:

Zodiac:

Inchies:

February:

Hearts:

Boy Bands:

With any luck I’ll have Enchanted and Dr. Seuss ATCs from last month to share with you soon, along with the motivation to do so. As for this month, there are 7 of us currently making Bunny ATCs, and 3 of us making Rom-Com ones.

Oh, and if you’re wondering about the “ATCs” from the Inchies set above, Jenn wanted to do an Inchies swap where we all made 4 even little-r cards that were 1 inch by 1 inch. I stuck each batch to a regular white card so I A) could keep ’em separated by artist, and B) put ’em in my binder with everything else I’ve acquired from our little group.

I love this little group, by the way; the joy I’ve gotten from these cards in the mail, whether I post them or not, has been nothing but little!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Little Cards: November

7 Dec

After making ATCs per Little Cards from one October to the next, Jenn and I decided we’d mix it up a little last month since our fellow adventurers deserved a break. We had a sole anniversary theme where everyone who wanted to participate could revisit any theme we’ve done in the past.

As of last week, here is what I had!

anniversary
Apparently Junk Food was a popular theme because not only did two people revisit it, there’s even a square with french fries on my ATC in the bottom left corner. And yes, that Water card is actually index size, but that mermaid is awesome enough I’m letting it slide this time, hehe.

Looking forward to seeing the 7 North Pole ATCs and the 6 Christmas Carols ones December will have in store for us, and sharing them with you here.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~
