Wishcasting Wednesday

My wish for the New Year ...I wish for family, friends, and myself happiness, contentment, and good health. I also wish to have more follow through instead of just thinking of what I would like to do! I am declaring the first half of 2012 the time to finish up all those unfinished projects. I wish to make time to participate in dreamboards and Wishcasting Wednesdays. I wish world leaders would have more compassion and less greed.

LIBERATE YOUR ART Postcard Swap!


Participating in Kat Sloma's "Liberate Your Art" postcard swap was a lot of creative fun. Participating in a swap is always great because it gives me a reason to have to go to my craft area and create instead of doing all those other things that often squeeze my creating time down to almost zero. Then anticipating the postcards arriving in the mailbox added to the fun. My postcard, "Journey" is a collage made from dress pattern pieces, bits of scrap paper, stamps from Australia, a Tim Holtz charm, and rubber stamp quotes. Thanks to everyone that participated! I enjoyed your creativity immensely.

The Postcards were so varied and creative. Lara sent a wonderful contemporary photo of the Park Playa Hotel in London, Kat sent the beautifully composed scooter photo making me think of going on a grand adventure, Claudia sent the yummy jumbo cookie card and I was ready to get to baking. "Red Velvet" was sent by Cindy and is a cut and paste creation. Hillary's place setting photo made me wonder what delicious goody was to come. Martha sent the marvelous burst of color with her flower photo card.

Carmen's ATC Challenge


I seem to continue to have few postings. However, I wanted to post the ATC goodies I received by participating in Carmen's challenge/swap. It was fun to create the ATC's, but total bliss to receive everyone else's in the mail. What creative beings everyone is. Thanks for all of your creativeness and effort!

Neglected Blog


I have been neglecting posting. I wanted to share some of the things I have been working on. Carmen is starting another challenge and we are going to be making ATC's. I am really excited to be a part of that group. Also, I am participating in the Sketchbook Challenge. I am hoping to gain some ability at sketching and improve my lettering. It is a pretty open challenge. I was thinking it would just be drawing (yikes), but anything you would do in a journal seems to be ok. Collages have my interest right now and the one here is for a friend of mine that is a wonderful watercolorer and gives me paintings so I wanted to make her something in return.
