Old and New

Hello :) Today I have updates with the old and new. Unlike the last sentence, I’ll show you something new first :)


ArtHaven is having a Bird ATC swap and here’s my contribution :) I just love this birdie image!! This image can be found here: PeggyLovesVintage Peggy sells such wonderful images in her shop, please check her out if you're a whimsical vintage image lover like myself! Hmm… I’m really liking this, but not too sure about the lillies…. What do you think??

I also started taking Cassandra Van Curen's online class thru her E-zine! There’s a link for it over there, if you’d like to sign up!! ------> The first class was today, but I have to gather supplies before I can have any fun!

But I couldn’t gather any new supplies because tonight I had to go to court for a speeding ticket- eek!! However, it was much less stressful than I thought it was going to be because Matt offered to go along with me (10 points!! lol), and I found out that I didn’t need to worry about my license being suspended. I pled guilty to a parking ticket and have to take a defensive driving class and pay a $75 fine. Whew!!

Now for the old… Remember December?? Well, I participated in Sarah’s Shabby Pink Christmas swap where we made two pink ornaments for our partner. My partner was the lovely, talented Sherri Howard! Here are the ones I received:

On my pink feather tree. Oh yes, it’s staying up year round!!


Here are the ones I made for Sheri (these pictures were taken from her blog because I forgot to photograph them, as I forgot to photograph many projects in December!!)


It’s a shaker ornament with mica inside… The sweet image here came from one of my favorite artist’s, Debrina Pratt, Etsy store.


Thank you for visiting today!! I hope you have a lovely Thursday :)

Oh, Julie......glad that I find people who once as afraid as I was...LOL. Just finding people who UNDERSTAND the feeling you had is like getting hugs. Warm all over and you don't wanna let go. Thanks from the bottom of my heart, dear!
And I love your work!...you ARE an artist, not an embellisher (or what you so called yourself)....:)
Have a nice day!

That birdie is so cute, Julie and the colors you used are scrumptious! What *you* think about the Lilies is what's important because *you* are the artist! ♥
