I was waiting for Spring Break so badly, and it's almost over! It went by fast, but I've been trying to squeeze every last minute out of it, so that I can catch up on some things. Like ATCs, that have been waiting forever to be finished and sent out. Normally I'm not like that, but I find that I am really busy these last few months, and trying to find time to do stuff for me is getting harder to do. I hope it eases up some, I like to play with my supplies and make something new and beautiful!
I was supposed to be in a few swaps over at illustratedATCs.com, but time got away from me and I had to bail out of the few that I was in. I felt really bad, as I have never done that before, but I had to let go something. One swap was the Coyote/Trickster swap that Meran is holding. She wanted images of tales that Coyote from Native Americans (and other cultures also) passed down. Usually these tales state how something came to be, and sometimes there's a moral in it, but mostly it's Coyote fooling around and getting into trouble. I really wanted to do this swap, and the images kept going through my head. Finally I just put them on paper, and figured I would trade them individually. I wanted Meran to have first pick, since I bailed on her, but she was willing to wait for me and still include me in the swap! That was awfully nice of her. Thanks Meran :)
