AtoZ Challenge...THEME REVEAL

Welcome to CollectInTexas Gals Theme Reveal for the
2016 AtoZ April Challenge!
Once upon a time I was a Middle School Art Teacher.  The first assignment to my 7th and 8th graders was to 'Be A Collector'.  Choose anything of interest, be it stamps, sports cards, bubble gum wrappers, bugs, favorite color stuff, stuffed animals etc. etc.  The point in making the assignment as it related to Art was this...
"When you are a 'Collector/Artist' you will never be BORED.
I spoke from experience...
...and still practice today what I preached...once upon a time.
 
For the past four years, my Themes have been based on my 'Collections' with stories that related to the Theme.  For example these posts from 2012-2015:
~AtoZ Family Tree...Zippity-DoDa Z's in My Family Tree.
~AtoZ LoneStar Quilting Bee...The Grand Jury Room
~AtoZ Fiction From Forgotten Fotos....Alfred and Aprils Brush with Disaster.
~AtoZ Growing Up in the 1950's and 60's....1950's Bathing Beauty Bombs.

The AtoZ April Challenge for 2016 falls right in line with the previous four years...Yep, it will be a smorgasbord of posts from a Collector/Artists' collection of everything from Art to Zippers. 
Here's a preview of Letter A...Ancient Anasazi Artifact Artist
After several hours of shallow digging, four walls of a 4x4 room can be seen as the high noon sun beats down through the twisted trunk and branches of a tree that was not there when the walls were first built by the Ancients.
Thanks for visiting.
