A happy me, holding a copy of the newest issue of SEW Somerset, where I contributed some art work, and a real snail mail letter from a friend, which is a little piece of artwork itself.

I've been busy in the last few weeks. But I always manage to find some time to create.
Ever since I learned to needlefelt, I've been practicing the craft by making miniature cacti. These are in tiny pots ranging from 1/2 " to 1 1/2". The 1/2" are my favorites. They are soo cute!!
(1 1/2" pot)
A week ago I also took a card making class. My friend and local artist/designer Josie was teaching it. It was fun. As a result I ended up purchasing a box of 12 Memento inks. Yummy colors that I have been using and will post my work here soon. Below are the samples I made in class.
And then there is always room for washi tape obsession. I've been making washi tape Christmas trees and then using them to collage greeting cards. I made about a dozen and decided to stop at the Vision Gallery in downtown Chandler to check if they want them. And they took all of them. They even took a dozen or more cards I made creating fancy dresses so I had to take them all down from my Etsy shop.
I feel excited and decided that more mess needs to be made on my work table!
