I hope everyone is doing well out there in Blogovia. Today, I'm sharing a few images from a few of the cards I sent out during the holidays. Not all are here, as there just isn't enough room.
All these were New Year's greetings, btw. I like to put something "extry" as my grandmother would say, such as trying to put in desert flora and fauna for RJ (Velvet Ginger of Somewhere Over The Rainbow) who lives in Arizona, and a tip of the hat for the others as well.
One Day At A Time's Femminismo has it bad for roses, so of course, there were roses on her card. And stars on her skirt as well as RJ's... both ladies strike me as reaching for the stars, being surrounded by whimsy and fun.
And Christmas, for some, means summertime, as Bless This Mess's Denise Mayson will be happy to tell you.
Speaking of weather, it's been aggravating here as it's been a lot like a "strawberry spring" recently, which happens when the temps are so mild and inviting, things start blooming. And then WHAP! Old Man Winter shows up again as of today, and nips everything and everybody in the bud with his 32F self ... with the exception of course, of the mosquitoes and bugs, which are the size of Buicks in My neighborhood by the time summer shows up.
Can you find the hawk's nest here? And it's as crisply cold and forlorn here at 235 as it looks in this photo, trust me!
Before I sign off, Black Eyed Suzie here has a fun website I recommend and she also wants to know how to 'make' that little raincoat in the previous post. I'm sending those to you, cross my heart. If you like dolls and sculpting, and a twisted, wicked sense of humor, in general, give her blog a shout out. You won't be sorry.
I found Black Eyed Suzie through Circles of Rain's Sarah Wallis who just sent me a fun Starbucks cup ornament ('a late Christmas or very early Christmas gift', as she says. Oh, why not both? lol.) and THIS totally magical girl... thank you, Sarah!
This redhaired miss fits just so into my hand. She is quite small and the detail is very lovely... the little fern across her frock is silvery glittery fun! And her arms and legs move, as well. Do you see her tiny, artsy brads?
Take care and Do More of What You Love.
