ATC Swap

Life Book 2013 Week 22 led by Tamara Laporte.  We are to make one or two ATC cards (artists trading cards) measuring 2.5" wide by 3.5" high.  The theme is "Stardust."

I am primarily a fiber artist.  I made my ATCs like small quilts.  The background is hand-dyed fabric pieced together.  Image transfer; painted faces; machine embroidery and quilting; embellished.

 I have not participated in a swap for a long time.  I can hardly wait to see I get matched up with.

Mitch & Me

I haven't seen my son, Mitch, in a long while.  I'm so glad we were able to connect over the weekend while I was in Chicago.

(Mitch, I love you dearly, but you need to get a little closer to the razor - just sayin'...)

Swinging on Your Swing...

Week 20 Life Book 2013 led by Effy Wild.  We are to create an artful shamanism (huh?!)   Basically, conjure up a symbolic image.

I remember as a child spending many happy hours swinging on a swing.  I felt so powerful and free flying high in the air.  It allowed my imagination to soar.  I was fearless - never mind the danger of falling - it was exciting.  I had trust in that tree limb.  It was strong.  It would not fail me.

Blogging with I-Pad mini

I'm getting ready to fly up to Chicago for a few days to see my children.

I might do some blogging while I am there. I wasn't quite sure how to do that. I found the Blogsy app and am giving it a try. There are helpful how-to videos. (Hopefully, I am doing this correctly!)

OK. I'm ready to publish my first Blogsy post. Keeping my fingers crossed...

My Muse....

Life Book Week 19 led by Shiloh Sophia McCloud (don't you love her name?!)  We are connecting with our own personal muse - think red thread connections, invitation to tea, music, etc.  Actually, my muse prefers martinis over tea!
