I have been out trying to get some shots of the wild turkeys and think I finally got one I like. They are had to photograph - they are pretty timid and run away.

Spring is here and everything is green and ready to explode with colour.

I received two "Green" ATC's from Val on my Art for the Creative Mind group. Yahoo is not letting me upload to that site so I am displaying my "art gifts" here.

I also received my first of two altered envelopes. These are my favourite colours and I am not sure if I want to part with this envelope and send it to anyone.

Collaborated book swap

I finally got all my pages put together from this latest swap. I got so many great pages from some very talented artists. I was responsible for doing the front and back covers only. Feast your eyes on the wonderful pieces that I received.

It was up to me to do the covers and put the book together. Boy oh boy, that was not easy. My book making skills are poor to non-existant.
Here are the covers that I did.

This and that

Spring has finally arrived!! Its cold and windy here today but the flowers are starting to bloom so I know things are going to improve. Just had a look at a friend's etsy shop and since I am not too savvy on how to link it properly, I'll link it here
She does fabulous jewellery amongst other artistic endeavours. She was my tole teacher and still critiques my stuff and offers me support if I am a little hesitant about the quality of a particular piece. I know that I have to step up to the plate a little more often and post my creations here. Now that summer is here I hope to take more time for me and my art.

I am still a beginner trying to do some jewellery type crafting. Here is my first attempt. I have a very long way to go.

I am not the only one that wants to get out and enjoy the spring weather.

About Me

My photo
I am an avid photographer. My favourites are flowers, animals, nature. I have recently gotten into mixed media arts - painting, collage, ATC's and sketching. Lots of my photos are taken with art in mind. I live in the country with my husband, two dogs and a cat. I have two wonderful grandkids who visit often and keep me laughing. My motto is: Look for the good stuff in everything and everybody!
