This is a 8x8 photo collage I recently finished. I got the photo image off one of my authentic french postcards that I bought at http://vintagecharmings.com.
The woman who runs that website, Kate, is really a nice woman and she travels between Paris and Connecticut every other week. She's always bringing back goodies from there.
I don't know what the weather is like everywhere else right now, but I know lately the east coast of the US has been socked pretty bad with snow. And here I sit in Arizona with the temperature in the 50's at night and the low to mid 70's during the day. It's like spring here right now, beautiful blue skies everyday, it literally couldn't be more beautiful. But believe me, our winter's are the reward we get for getting through the summer's here.
Am I the only one who can't believe we are almost done with January already?? It's going to be the 4th of July any minute now.

After a really, really, really long absence (since right before Halloween), I am back and happily creating again. Happy New Year to everyone!! I hope the holidays were wonderful for each and every one of you and I hope your New Years was safe and as much fun as you wanted it to be.
With the hectic holidays and with my arthritis acting up yet again, I was MIA, out of commission, however you want to phrase it. But with the New Year started I am feeling a rush of brand new creativity and I'm hoping to get back to posting a lot more frequently.
Thank you BTW for not leaving me while I was gone. I even had a fellow artist who I consider just crazy talented recently ask me where I was, and when was I coming back? The fact that someone of her caliber asked me that, well it was more than flattering to say the least.
Here are a couple things I've made most recently. I'm really pleased with how the cardboard collages turned out. The Butterfly card is something I made for my sister. And the standing ATC, is one of three I'm working on, the other two aren't done yet.
