My favorite Yahoo group has announced that it will most likely dissolve at the end of this month.  I am so sad.  I have had such amazing art exchanges with this group.  Just finished a bracelet made from 20 different handmade charms from numerous artists.  Such a cool experience – to send in 10 of something and get 10 amazing pieces of art in return.

 My most recent swap was a one on one exchange with a very talented artist named Ang. (Visit her blog here  http://altermyworld.blogspot.com/) She fell in love with my tree cards and ordered a couple of sets, then asked if I would make one just for her.  I in turn selected one of her design concepts and asked her to make one for me. 

 O happy day! When her card arrived in the mail I was smitten.  Every time I look at it I feel like its my birthday.  What a great feeling.   I have posted here pics of both my and Ang’s art.  Hope it makes you smile too.

    Such a sweet piece! And your cards look wonderful too. Did you finally decide to go with the hardcore, archival inks?

    These are quite adorable.

    I always love your trees. And the piece you got in exchange is amazing too.

  4. I think it was one of your trees that drew me to your blog in the first place.

    I love that birthday cake. What a treat! Almost as good as the real thing!

    Your trees are really nice!

    Sorry your group is ending. 😦 I’d be bummed too. Finding a group of kindred spirits who come together and create synergy is a rare thing indeed.

    I can see why you’re so over the moon over Ang’s work. It’s lovely & made me smile. I want the cake picture for Valentine’s day. 🙂 Your tree picture makes me think of Spring, love and life. And I’m sure the little bird knows something I don’t. 😀
