Plein Air

I finally premiered my new card line called Plein Air, thanks to my friend Judy Ebert of jbEbert who won the "Name That Card Line" contest I held a few weeks ago! Here are some of the new cards that can be found in my Etsy shop:

I'm a Fan of...

Artimentary on Etsy is a shop filled with beautiful work by artist and art therapist Antonia Lindsey. Her creations of jewelry and of collages are rich with texture and color, and they all share one thing: former lives. Antonia recycles and upcycles found broken pieces, vintage and antique finds. All of her work is beautiful, but I am partial to her collages, which combine paper, crytstals, metal pieces, and other materials to create stunning landscapes and birds and abstracts.

In addition to her Etsy shop, Artimentary can be found on Artfire and Flickr and in Antonia's blog, Artimentary Studios, she is able to share her facility with words, sharing her personal journey with poetic candor.

Taking a Little Break

Just wanted to apologize to my readers for not being on top of my blogging for the last couple of weeks. For the next few days, I will be hosting family and taking an official vacation from my blog until at least mid-week. I will return to my regular schedule soon!

In the meantime, here is another little slide show I've put together:
