The ATC swap group I go to (at BizzyB's, a collage and scrap heaven) is so forgiving. It was June who reminded me on Thursday that the meeting was last night, and although I had my ATCs planned, I hadn't made any. June told me to show up anyway, and I did. Empty-handed and yet.... I came home with goodies from Martha, and ATCs from several generous people who insisted I take one, even though I had none to offer, a sheet of birdies from Cori, a funny story from Ludgera whose birthday it was, so, like magic, two trays of cupcakes appeared at our table.
I have to mention Diane, who works at the store, is one of the most generous souls I know.
And, by the way, I won't forget the next date!
