art exchange

Finally back from the holiday break! Hope everyone feels well rested! Wanted to share with you something I received over the holidays. I was invited by Belinda at gretchenmist to participate in an art exchange email project a little while ago, and I received my first art piece in the mail! (The idea is each participant receives several pieces of art in the mail from random artists). Thank you to Dennis Stein for sending me this lovely photo! (Sorry there was no web address included with the package for me to link to). Kind of exciting to receive artwork from unexpected people and places... hopefully there will be a few more!

ps. also wanted to thank Kevin at I Love Handmade for featuring one of my collages, Heather at Heather King Photography and Miranda at Hudsonny for featuring my calendar over the holidays. Many thanks!!!
