ATCs in Binders and MONEY!

Labor Day weekend provided an opportunity to really "labor"...uninterrupted work time...a chance to really get some important organizational things done for CYBER FYBER. I worked on the 163 ATCs for two days, creating all the exhibition labels and the small binders. Each binder has approximately 20 plastic sleeves. Each sleeve has a page with an image of the ATC I traded and its description plus the name, country, and blog/webpage for the fiber artist who created the ATC that is also inside the plastic sleeve.

(Click on either image to enlarge.)

It was really fun doing all this because it gave me an opportunity to peek in on several blogs. One of the unfortunate things about CYBER FYBER is that I don't personally have the time to read blogs like I used to do....but....once this is over, I've got lots of great places, new friends, and diverse blogs to really follow on a regular basis.

And now for some really GOOD NEWS: The Cultural Council of Richland and Lexington Counties has decided to fund CYBER FYBER with an $800 grant! I've got to add the "required blurb" on the site but I'm really thrilled as all this money will be going toward Internet access for Gallery 80808/Vista Studios....for CYBER FYBER's physical exhibition to be legally in touch with the rest of the world...with a strong signal! Hopefully, there'll be lots of people learning more about our blogs, blogging in general, and about fiber arts of all kinds!
