Gift From the Sea

Saturday, November 29th, 2014

This ATC was created for a swap focusing on something in nature. At least one item in the card had to be from nature. And a couple of haiku! A sand dollar moon peers heavenward, smiling to her silver sister. ***** Ocean origin star within echoes secrets hidden in apples.

ATC – Red

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

I haven’t participated since 2006, but I decided to get re-acquainted with the site Swap-bot. One of the swaps I joined is to make nine Artist Trading Cards, each focused on one color. Here it is before I pop it into the mail. It felt so good to make. If I just carve out a […]

Be Mighty, Be Daring

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

I enjoy creating in so many ways. My friend L (mom of one of Claire’s friends) and I are developing an informal girl group. After spending many years driving to see friends (which we’ll continue doing) we want to create friendships and develop deeper connections in the neighborhood.

Just Doing It

Friday, January 24th, 2014
