Atc's and happy mail!



Over at our Google+Community
Creating & Sharing Mixed Media
Recently,we had our first atc exchange,with the theme"Summer"
Here are the atc's I created for my partner
 June Walker in England
  Up next,from my trade partner,all the way from Dublin,Georgia....
sweet Felicia Aaron sent me this wonderful package of goodies
and created these beautiful Summer themed atc's for me
 
and she also added a gorgeous postcard she made!
Thank you Felicia!!
****************
Also today,I am sharing the wonderful art that has arrived in my mailbox over the past couple of weeks.

first up,all the way from Belgium...
a package from~Denthe!
I adore Denthe's art and have been fortunate enough to take a class from her(via the internet)
 I have said before that the internet is a wonderful thing,and I say it again! Being able to connect with so many like-minded souls,art sisters and new found friends from all over this huge world of ours is mind blowing and at the same time so very grounding.Reminding us,that we are all here together,no matter the miles between us how different our cultures are.
thank you oooooh internet gods and mail deliverers everywhere!
 Gorgeous original pieces that I shall treasure forever-thank you Denise!!!
 Denthe's colors are just so luscious!!!
And then in my mailbox,to my wondering eyes did appear??
 A fat envie filled with yummy vintage ephemera! yea, I know it doesn't rhyme lol
The coolest atc,made especially for me from my coffee loving friend,and art sister,Shelby Pizzarro
 Even though Shel is in Pennsylvania and I in NY,most mornings we share our coffee together,tipping our cups to one another and sending off wishes for a happy,creative day!
 vintage goodies all waiting for me to pour over and use in my art! 
Thank you so much Shel!
BTW,Shel used Dunkin Donut napkins to wrap my atc in~how very clever of you! heheeee
**************
 and lastly, here are a few paper dolls I made and entered into a challenge at Gecko Galz

 






















Thanks so much for your visit. I know summer is a busy time for everyone,and I really appreciate the time you have taken to stop by and comment!
much love,Jackie ")

Jackie, this really made my morning! I just came from Felicia's blog--I think I must have stumbled on it through you...duh! I don't know how these things work. I sail like a butterfly through blogland lately, landing wherever there is a pretty flower! So here I am lighting on yours this morning and loving the sweet nectar! Ha! Ha! Pretty deep for me! Love seeing your beautiful, colorful, and creative artwork and the shares of gifts from your likewise artsy blog friends! I can feel the excitement you all share as you receive your pretty packages from one another! Thank you for sharing! Big hugs!
