You've Got Mail

Oh yes! I sure have. My art swap arrived today from Juddie of Flightless Boyds. I am overwhelmed by what she has made me. 4 extraordinary pieces. For those of you who aren't in the know I organised an art swap a while back. The theme was "In The Woods" and we had 6 us of from Australia and the USA join in. The finished works were all incredible and I think nearly all of them have made their way to the new homes around the globe. Here are my 4 new amazing designs.




I can't wait to take them off to my trusty framer to see what he does with them. I am thinking something pretty simple to keep with the simplicity of the works. I will have to save my pennies first. My framing guy isn't cheap but he does an amazing job. Anyway, I think they may go in the bedroom when they are done as we are a bit short of art in the bedroom. Will have to see what partner thinks but I don't see any argument coming.

And Juddie sent me a brooch too. Isn't it cool. I am going to wear it out to dinner this evening. Thank you so, so much Juddie for the beautiful art work.

A few people have asked if there will be another Art Swap and the answer is definitely YES. I'm not sure when yet. It was great to organise and participate in this one. I feel like I got to take myself completely outside my comfort zone and do something really different. I would love to hear some ideas for themes to get me thinking about the next one.

you are a very lucky girl. those prints are beautiful. my favourite is the one with bear and the tree. also wanted to let you know that i have picked up some bargain frames with mounts at target and kmart and they look very profesh at a very tiny fraction of the price of custom framing.

Hi Cath,

Thank you for your kind comments (and patience as the deadline slipped past)!

I'm so sorry the pictures got a bit crinkled - I should have posted them with a firmer backing :-( Lesson learned for next time ...
