Guess what... It's September already!!!! and ... we are here with a brand new theme for the month... it's going to be a theme with a difference this time around... 

and it's time for some

  'Kittty Kitty Kat Kat' 

...nope no cats and no kit-kats involved :)

what we want you to do this month is create an ATC... could be just absolutely anything under the sun(please keep within the size limit though)... and create a small kit to go with it... which contains exactly the same material (including the card stock cut to size) for the recipient to be able to make her own with it... 

So, all of us have to make 2 ATCs(could be same or different) and we have 2 small kits containing all the stuff used in the making of your 2ATCs... you can omit using scissors/glue/colour pens... etc from the kit... lolzzz.... 

Any questions, please feel free to ask!!!

Also, at the end of the month, we would be drawing out a member randomly for a small surprise goody!!! So, do sign up quickly and we'll be mailing out the hostess address to you shortly...

Presenting our Guest Hostess 'Dolly'...

Ladies and Gentlemen,
here's presenting our guest hostess for June, 'Dolly'!!!

(well, is this really correct!!! do we actually have men snooping around here to see whats happening!!! well, i doubt... and even if some do, are there really 'gentlemen' existing... am nt too sure of dat either... well, all we married women around here, better not complain... our hubbies have been more than supportive & very well 'gently' patient in this 'crazily expensive' passion of ours... but on 2nd thoughts, isnt complaining our birth right...foget it, just random ramblings:D)

So, ladies... for the month of June our guess hostess was our very own 'Dolly'(well some of you would also know her as 'Kishley') and are very very familiar with her creative talents over at http://www.studiokish.blogspot.com/. Her theme for the month was Ethnic Indian.

A big round of applause for Dolly and all the enthusiastic
participants who came up with such beauties. 

Here's what Dolly had to say about her experience of the whole thing:

"i was asked to write a small piece on my experience of being a hostess on this ATC swap blog. And i started thinking what to write! And as i sat watching television today, there was some award-night on telecast. So i thought wow! maybe thats what i should start my brief note with, don't mind if you feel they are boring.

 First of all thanks to the creators of this wonderful blog "crazy about ATCs" for giving me this equally wonderful opportunity to host June's ATC swap. I would also like to thank all the participants who made those ATCs for the theme 'Ethnic Indian'. And i also would put a note of thanks to Mr. Ajay, my society's admin guy for collecting all mails and couriers on my behalf and giving them to me (after 2 days of him receiving them :D).

In the first week of June i was all excited about being a hostess. By second week i remembered once in a while that i'll receive ATCs soon. Third week came and i forgot all about ATCs. Fourth week, i received the first ATC, by Ashkuku, and i was all excited AGAIN :). Then afterward, each day went in anticipation about 'have i received one more today?' Even Mr. Ajay was bugged up quite a number of times by me and my husband asking , 'have you received a courier today?'.

Whenever i would receive one, i would open them up in excitement, eager to see some more ethnic stuff. Each time, i would see a marvellous piece of craft and a few times some new techniques too. I saw, for the first time, what parchment craft is and how to use glass paints on small creations. I learnt how beautiful stones and pearls look when patterned as jewellery. I was amazed at how people translated 'Ethnic Indian' into their creations. For most of it was about peacocks and paisleys, for some it was religion and God, for some it was Indian motifs and patterns. I loved receiving them all...

I showed all ATCs to my family, all the guys in my family were least interested. My hubby even bugged by being requested to ask (once more) about the mails to Mr. Ajay. My m-i-l was amused at no-sentiment-and-too-small-cards being sent for apparently no-reason-at-all. My mum all praises for a unique hobby, though i couldn't get her to see all the cards.

My biggest worry in swapping ATCs was to make sure that no one receives their own ATCs back. I tried with a lot of permutations, hopefully no one receives their own ATCs back. :D

Thanks gurls for letting me have the wonderful experience."    

Girls, that's not all.
Dolly has also decided to give away some crafty candy to one lucky creative-winner!!!

Here's all the super duper yummy stuff that she's sharing!!!

and she's picked the lucky receipient to be

Congrats Girl!!!
Dolly would soon be contacting you via mail for your address and other details.
Have fun :)

Thanks Dolly!!!
We too were really happy and excited to share with you the joy we experience each month!!!

Till next,
take care and happy crafting :)
