Here are some pieces that I put together for our Annual Christmas Craft and Bake sale that I put together at my day job. In addition to these, I also had some cards, small tree ornaments, and altered domino ornaments (which I will post in a day or two). I love doing Christmas Craft sales!

Mixed Media Artist Blog Feature!

I am so excited!
Cyndi L. over at MIXED MEDIA ARTIST BLOG has done a feature on me today! Talk about validation....
She chose a couple of my favourite pieces featuring my latest love, which is combining vintage images (in the one case a photo of my momma as a little girl) with my own artwork and lettering.

Thank you again, Cyndi - this made my day!

Love is Like a Butterfly

On the Blissful Art Journaling group, we had a prompt challenge about butterflies. When I think about butterflies, I always think about the this song by Dolly Parton. Inspired by the prompt, and by the exciting buzz going on with my Creative Lettering workshop on the Artists of the Round Table Yahoo Group, I created this piece tonight. I thought it would make a nice card, so I am adding it to my Greeting Card Universe cards, if you would like to order a copy! Please click on the image for a better view...
