Today I participated in the last shoebox swap at Ink About It. They are closing soon, and although I still have 2 classes left to teach there- it is bittersweet that today was the last shoebox swap.These events have always been a wicked fun time, they are laid back, let people show their style AND you walk away with an awesome stash of cards! This is one of the many many reasons why independent stores are so important. I’m sorry, I don’t see a Micheal’s, Hobby Lobby or even AC Moore manager coming in on a day the store is closed, and offering an event like this for FREE for their customers. There I said it. Anyways, I will miss these fun days, it’s not often that I get to sit and create and not be the one teaching so I have always looked forward to these days.
The theme for today’s swap was “anything goes” so there were all different genre’s of cards to make. I decided to design a “keep in touch” card, because I mean just that. I hope to truly keep in touch with these awesome peeps! What better way to be able to do that? Social Media!
