Serendipity, Kindred Spirits and ATC's

Serendipity, when it happens to me, reminds me of the character Anne Shirley from the Anne of Green Gables series, who was always looking for kindred spirits. I also look for kindred spirits and I found one in my new friend Wendy (BLISSANGELS.BLOGSPOT.COM), who's been patient and kind enough to share her many talents of art, crafting, writing and blogging. I was excited when Wendy showed me ATC's (Artist Trading Cards). They are the most amazing things - tiny works of art, shared among kindred spirits. My excitement for the ATC swap is even keeping me up at night, like a kid waiting for a letter from a pen pal. I'm wondering if I can produce an expression of art that will fit on such a tiny canvas and yet make a statement of some kind. Wendy's been such a great help, showing me the wonderful ATC's she's collected. And she doesn't just stash them in a box stored under the bed. She displays them in many clever ways. It was impressive to see her collection. So, three cheers to serendipity/kindred spirits & ATC's.
