Today's post is sharing some wonderful happy mail I recently received~
hope you have a few minutes...")
First up are atc's that I made for my friend Uuna from Finland.We swapped 3 atc's each and she told me she preferred abstract-
Next are the gorgeous atc's and card that
I received from Uuna-Stunning!!
|Note card designed by Uuna with pieces from her photography art|
|Gorgeous textures and colors!|
|I love Uuna's use of gold-i love all that glitters and shines!|
|The color play on this one is simply delish!|
The stamp on the card is Uuna's art-she actually has her own art on a
mailing stamp-how cool is that?!
Thank you so very much dear Uuna for sharing your wonderful art with me-I am very pleased and proud to display these in my studio-to inspire me and remind me of my faraway friend !To see more of Uuna's art- find her here- Uuna
Next up, a package arrived this week from
my very first online bestest friend in Ohio-Darlene!!
I had to laugh out loud because the package inside was wrapped in Christmas paper while the card read Happy Birthday(my b'day is in Jan.)heehee
Just look what was inside!
If you could only feel and smell this glorious leather!! It is sooo soft! Darlene's daughter,Stacey,made this purse and wallet where she works and creates, at Down Home Leather.
And my friend Darlene,crazy and spontaneous that she is,decided I just had to have this!She knows how hip I am(heehee)and that this was just what I needed!!
Thank you sweet Darlene,I adore this gift!
also a fab set of four DecoArtTwinkles WritersYay!!
|and a recipe for homemade organic bug spray|
Darlene knows what a total glitter fan I am,as, I am the first to have turned her on to Stickles-back in the day-heehee when we first met on Strathmore's online art classes.
Darlene really stuck out to me in the chat forum with her wit and her use of her lace kitchen curtains as stencils!
I kid you not, I laughed so hard when I read that- I spewed my coffee on my keyboard!! She actually cut her curtain up to use it in her piece she was working on!! hahahaa
The humor continues with Darlene-you'll know this if you ever read her Zebra comics,here on her blog-freeniebelle
Thank you again,my dear bestest Ohio friend!! xo
This is my new coffee/tea cup for my studio- it did not come from Poland but the design did,by another online friend,Bozena.
Bozena is a textile artist from Poland,who creates such intricate and detailed textile pieces.Truly exquisite work! Some designs are offered as cups,clocks,pillows or prints.
I love the birds and when I saw this piece that Bozena had created,well, I needed the cup!!yup! had to have it!
You can find Bozena at The Textile Cuisine
|So glad to have met Bozena and her beautiful artwork!|
Finally,today, this next photo is another delivery,but not by mail....
These containers hold 200 various pines and 10 Forsythias- guess what we're doing this weekend?!
Thanks for visiting- I'll be back next week with more art to share,as long as I can still sit and stand! heeeheee
