My 1st Time Doing a Pick-A-Theme (PAT) Swap

I am learning alot about trading different types of art on ATCs For All! and my recent venture was a Pick-A-Theme swap.  There is so much to learn and not enough time in any given day.  The PAT works like this:

1. There are a number of "groups" with a particular type of art style assigned.
2. There are up to 5 people in each "group" and they each pick a theme.
3. Then you have to make a card for each of the other people in whatever "theme" they choose.

This was the group I was in for the Mid-October PAT swap!

Group 1 ~ Hand Drawn/Painted ~ Easy Themes ~ FULL
1 tlsexton0913 ~ Flowers (This is me, so I should get 4 cards with Flowers)
2 Robin ~ Dragonflies
3 bernie712 ~ Crabs or Witches
4 arlie707 ~Rabbits
5 ghillietoes42 ~ Pandas

These are the cards that I Hand Drew for each of the participants.  Can you guess which card is for who?

Grandma Cheatwood's Pecan Pie Recipe

I am totally having a blast over at ATCs for All with the PIF Recipe Card Swap.  This particular recipe came from my Great, Great Grandma Cheatwood.  It is her famous pecan pie and the secret is that instead of using 1 cup of either dark or light Karo Syrup, you use a 1/2 cup of each.  I've had many a pie and none have compared to this recipe!

This also my dad's favorite recipe and I used to make it at Thanksgiving when we lived near my parents.  I'd always ask what kind of pie he wanted and this is the only one he ever chose.

I'm Dream of a White Christmas! Really?

Moving to Oklahoma turned out to be not such a hot idea, but what are you going to do?  The husband now has a job that pays well for this area and so far he likes it.  We also, finally, got medical insurance.

My point is this; Oklahoma is a humid place and I mean humid.  So, the winters are not just cold but they are wet and bone-chilling-cold.  I miss Colorado winter snow and I miss Colorado.  I joined this swap over at ATCs for All titled "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" and these are the cards I came up with:

The last won is done using Zentangle, but I was kind of sad that I blended in the "w" with the girl.  My favorite is the snow man in the field next to the tree!
