I created these ATCs for a "Suzy Homemaker" ATC swap. We were to decide what our interpretation of a homemaker was. I loved some of them so much that I made extras to swap out, and I kept my favorites. I have other ideas of what a homemaker is, but I was using images from two vintage books and old issues of Mechanix Illustrated magazine, so they ended up being themed with cooking and decorating. I also made some of these with vintage ephemera that belonged to my grandmother (the grocery shopping receipts and product proof of purchases).
If I were to be more true to myself, a homemaker in the year 2005, I would have done some with images of breastfeeding, attachment parenting and homeschooling! In my own world, decorating is not high on my list of priorities as a mother. However I also was reminding myself that not all homemakers are mothers of babies, some homemakers are even senior citizens whose babies have long since flown the coop (not to mention child-less homemakers).
Let me know what you think! (If I had scanned each one individually then you would have been able to see more detail, sorry!).
