Nice to hear from you Michal...and to be back on the listserv finally.
My school's server was preventing me from answering to the list. I'd
get the messages but couldn't respond. Anyway...I'm back.

Your postcard idea sounds a lot like the canvas swap you and I did
together. That was a hoot. I remember the ruby slippers I did on yours.

I've done the ATC Fine Arts yahoo group for around 3 years so I like
the smallness of the artwork. They also swapped postcards on that
group as well as the standard ATC size.

I just discovered the "fatbooks" so I want to learn more about them. I
just joined a group so we will see. I also see that not many are
posting on this list which is usual for the summer. That's
least I'm back and ready to chat. Take care Michal. Toodles.....Bunki
