It seems like there is a period each season where I feel indifferent to just about everything. During these times it is hard to focus (well always), hard to sit still and hard to get anything accomplished like blogging. I do think about blogging but somehow I just can't be bothered... Anyway, I am starting early today in hopes I can finish and publish this post!
I have finished up my cards for Heather's Spring Floral note card swap. Somewhere along the way I put the "floral" part our of my head and just went off any old way. Fortunately she saw them and said send them anyway.. yay. Here are two I haven't shared before.
I'm not sure how springy they are come to think of it but I am out of time so they will have to do.
The other day I had a wonderful mail day. I have bee doing a few more ATC swaps lately so its fun to see the new artwork in my mailbox. There are so many fun artists to swap with on Flickr. Thanks gals! I was super excited to get this package the other day from Shosh who was my partner in HannahGrey before I moved on to Portals and focusing more on my own art and family. She sent me a goodie package of new arrivals for HG...
Check out the new colors of German foils!! Wow, the pink is so shabby chic and perfect. The birdie punch is so cool and when Shosh saw it she said she knew I just HAD to have it. She also sent me the current issue of Somerset Life which has some art by our favorite shabby gal, Pam Garrison along with tons of other inspiring and fun projects for infusing some art and style into every day life. I keep picking it up and flipping through it. The little gal is a teeny ballerina. My Hannah immediately took off with it but she was very cute. I think if you click on the picture it will get bigger. THANKS again Shosh.
The same day that I got this great package from Shosh, I also received a very recognizeable envelope. Those of you who read Pam Garrison's blog will know that this is from her. Back at ArtFest, Pam spotted a book of wallpaper I had in her class. I SWEAR she has vintage wallpaper radar... well she came over and asked where I had gotten it. It was a a book of vintage small prints that I had hunted down when I was working on Hannah's doll house actually. Anyway, she exclaimed over it but refused my offer to help herself fearing she might take my favorites. We then decided to do a little swap ourselves after we returned. This is what she sent me!!
Ok, thats about it for now. I am being "paged" by the little. Time to get on with our day.
