I went a bit wild this evening; I am sending out a swap and decided to go all out and decorate the envelope since I had time!
What is a Pink Artist you ask?? Check out Monica’s project to support a cure for Breast Cancer. I consider myself lucky so far in that neither I nor any of my close family members have been struck by breast cancer but cancer is cancer no matter what part of the body it strikes and I lost someone near this year to colon cancer. He was in his 30’s and left behind 2 young children. So cancer is very much a part of our lives and if I can do just a little to help, then so be it.
Here are a few squares I created for the project.
This week’s challenge is button dolls; something I have never really tried so it was nice to break out the buttons.
Check out Belinda’s blog for a tutorial on how to make them.
Just couldn’t think of anything to do with this week’s theme of keys, then while tidying up, I came across this little key embellishment. Wish I had found it earlier.
Apparently I didn’t get the memo either. Check out Michelle’s post about letter writing. Don’t you agree it is a lost art. I even missed Laura’s letter writing party. Actually i have always liked mail art and tend not to send out naked envelopes. But this piqued my interest. I need to go back to actually writing letters with juicy content. I remember receiving letters from my mother when I was in boarding school. Mail day was the highlight of the week! Here is a postcard I made for a friend Tejae; we have started exchanging monthly postcards. Send someone a letter or postcard this week or as soon as you get a chance.
I was fortunate enough to have a couple of wall hangings I made published in Sew Somerset. This christmas I made a couple more for some dear friends. I actually need to make some more for my wall which is taking shape.
Buttons seem to be my new fave thing. I love how colorful they are! Its a bit blurred because the scanner doesn’t do dimension.
Enjoy. gotta get back to blogging more often…. I sure do miss it.
The New Years challenge on the new look Wednesday Stamper is gothic arches and I just couldn’t resist. Happy New Year to all the delightful folks that visit my blog. I hope this year is filled with many good things for you and your families. I appreciate your time and lovely comments that make blogging so much fun. My scanner will not cooperate with the new Mac operating system, so I had to resort to my camera.
