so i've seen a few blogs that mention swapping and all the cute things that they get and finally found out what all that was about. swapbot is a place for people to connect to swap random things... anything from jars filled with misc. cute things to surprise packages filled with a favorite color to postcards to ATCs. i won't lie... i had no idea what an ATC was. ATC stands for "artist trading cards." they're cards the size of playing cards or baseball cards that can be decorated with whatever the artist wants. the backs are dated, signed, and titled and traded with other artists. i decided to give it a try and now i'm itching to collect random ephemera! ebay is suddenly an obsession... :P here are a few test ATC's that i made the other day... they're a little too scrapbook-y in my opinion but it's what i know! i can't wait to experiment some more!
