Today is a housekeeping, random thoughts post..... (because if I'm in front of the computer, I don't have to do actual housekeeping! :)
I've received all 6 postcards from the Liberate Your Art swap hosted by Kat. This is the second year I've participated - she had almost 200 participants this year I think so it's really fun to see what sort of art postcards you might receive. These are from (top left) Cathy in the UK (dear-emma.com), Kathy in AZ (uniqueknobbery.com), Deb in AK (dyingtobeyours.blogspot.com), Solande in the Netherlands (zwerfdieren.com), Kat in OR (kateyestudio.com), and Paula in VA (littlescrapsofmagic.typepad.com).
(ED to add) This is such an easy swap to participate in - she walks you through each step and gives lots of time - basically the idea is to share a p/c of your art so you take a photo, make a p/c and send her 5 cards with postage. She takes care of the rest. There's a blog hop 9/13-16 to see what others sent/received so you might want to visit her site & check it out. SHE'S MADE A VIDEO that includes 1 postcard from each of the 193 participants (from all over the world) and it's inspirational - definitely worth seeing!
During the rest of the year Kat shares tirelessly. She's a photographer extraordinaire and shares tutorials and tips and inspiration.
I drove east of the mountains to Chelan and spent a couple days with my best friend - we got a jump start on our handmade Christmas cards. It was so much fun to cut and glue paper, brainstorm ideas and just chat the day away.
We're in a major creative flurry here!
Just before I left I was out watering the flower pots on the deck and had to snap a couple of pics - the flowers are just SO gorgeous!
Now, I'm off to work on my large canvas....I've put it off for a week but no longer! Hope you're all enjoying your weekend.
