Artist Trading Cards.

Hello - I am trading "ATC's" with 8 other people. An ATC is an Artist Trading Card. They are small - 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". You can't sell them for money - only trade them. To start with I got heavy watercolor paper and brushed on yellow and red. Then the fun part was dripping paint onto the paper and blowing the drip around with a hairdryer. I cut the paper to the smaller size.

I had allready drawn these Mushroom People. They are called Toads. A Toad is a speciman from the Mushroom Kingdom in the Mario video games. They are very peaceful, wise, human-following, sapient (this is a component of intelligence considered to be an additional faculty apart from intelligence with its own properties - a cognizant aptitude - yes, my Mom helped with this one) personalities. There are eight main ones and that's how many I had drawn on my paper. I cut them out and glued them to my cards.

These are the cards with one of my artist signature cards. I DO love color. We don't give out all our information to be on the safe side.

This is the back with the title, my name, and the date. I will stick them in the mail to my 8 new friends and then I'll watch the mailbox for mine to come from them. I can't wait.

My favorite meal.

My favorite meal is chicken flavored Ramen noodles. Here's the recipe. First, smash the noodles in the pack to a small size. Add to 2 cups boiling water. Boil for 3 minutes. Drain and enjoy.
