Four ATC's, for Swap

Hi!  I'm hosting an ATC swap and I just finished mine!  (Bad girl, six days late!!)  I have everyone else's and will do the actual "swap" this weekend (what fun that will be!!) and then mail them out on Monday.  So, I did four which means I will get back four.  Here are my four.  The top two I just did last night and today.  The bottom two I did a few weeks ago.

You all know what an ATC is by now, right??  :)  They're so fun to do.... some people say you're limited by their size... I say you're "freed" by their size!  There's only so much you can do on such a small space!  (2.5" x 3.5")

I'm so glad I'm done, too, because it's supposed to be a beautiful weekend!!  I want to get out and work in the yard!!  Yay!!  Wish me luck.....

Have a great weekend!

Embroidered flour-sack towel

Here's a flour-sack towel that I embroidered for a friend.  I added the little strip of fabric at the bottom, too.  I just love this set of chicken patterns!  There are seven of them....some hens, some roosters.  I did another one, but haven't given it to that friend, yet, so can't post it on here until she has it in her hands.  :)

Look closely and you will see a little chick on either side of the sleeping and one peeking out.  Too cute.  I need to do a full set of these for my daughters and myself!

That's all for now.... need to finish cooking dinner and putting the flyers down at the coffee shop that I book music for.

Have a great night!

The 4x6 Exchange

So, here's a piece that I did for a global art exchange.
The exchange is being coordinated by the Art House Co-op,  in Brooklyn, NY. They have a different project each week and you can sign up for their emails which will let you know what they've got going on. They just did a note swap... you write a note, a letter, tell a story, etc... and send it to them.   They send it on to someone else and you get one back, from who knows who or where! I SO wanted to do that, but I procrastinated on signing up and I missed out!! I didn't miss the dead-line, but they had met their quota of contributors! I believe they were allowing 1000 people (don't quote me on that)...and they had to close it because it was full. I'm so bummed. :(  What a lesson on procrastinating! 
But, I didn't miss out on this art exchange!! So, here's my piece, "Don't Forget Your Wings".  It's a 4x6 - that was the main requirement; also, that it would lie flat and fit in a standard envelope.  You could paint, draw, write, sketch, print, collage or sew. I hope the person who ends up with it loves it. I'm looking so forward to receiving mine! I wonder which part of the world it will come from?  What kind of art will it be?   My 19-yr. old daughter did a delightful watercolor to contribute, also.

Oh, my gosh... how'd it get to be 11:00 at night?  I'm usually up until this time, or later, but I have to be up early to go to a play with our homeschool group!  And, I still have to read before sleeping!!  :)

Good night!
