Swap-bot and Postcrossing

I haven't been doing much swapping or postcarding lately. There have been too many distractions, like work and house remodeling and watching old television shows and just being lazy. But, I have decorated a few envelopes for some get-well and thinking-of-you cards. I also joined a couple of swaps in mid September and sent out ATCs in decorated envelopes.
This was for Elder Calvin Petersen, who adopted me as a grandpa when he was a student at my school five years ago. The next three were for Swap-bot ATC trades. I go to more work on these trades than I should - extra ATCs and a postal art envelope.

These envelopes are for a Swap-bot Halloween ATC trade with two trade partners.
These are the ATCs that I made for the trade. I made two of each and sent both cards and some decorated blanks for backgrounds to each of the partners. The gray background of the second card was supposed to be black, but you never know what you are going to end up with when you die paper with my process. It has a nice texture though.

I have fun making them. I hope they mean something to those who receive them. You will have to make a few yourself.
