Art Exchanges Friendship...
We all know I love blogging and creating things and sharing with other creative minded people. Well a couple of years ago in one of the swaps I was participating in I received an ATC from Theresa. She does not have a blog so I have no link for you. However, Theresa and I have been swapping artful ATCs and cards and tags ever since. I am ashamed to say Theresa has been much more giving than I. I can also admit that I am remiss in never sharing her beautiful art she creates. So I went into my special treasures and gathered some to share with you now. The leaf card is one of T!m's newest relief dies and has fun dimension on the card. Theresa has colored it in Fall colors to perfection. The other two ATCs are amazing. Fall into Autumn with embossed copper is perfect for this season. The other ATC reads, "Live in the moment and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering." This is something I should do each and every day.
Here is a complete calendar year of ATCs. Theresa tries lots of art mediums and creates little works of art with her talents. I received these last year each month and what a wonderful gift that lasts forever.
This is one of her beautiful cards with stenciling and lovely clear decals that add dimension and beauty. Receiving anything from Theresa is a JOY to behold. I am very grateful for every piece of art she sends me. Thank you so very much Theresa.
This ATC is front and center this month as it is October and the little silhouttes are clearly on their Trick or Treat way. I realize I have not done my fair share of sending to Theresa and I am promising to be a better friend and art exchanger. We live on opposite coasts and yet we have found out we are very similar in many ways. I am happy and proud to share Theresa's friendship and art talents.
Our weather has been beautiful. I spent my day at the Chamber helping lots of visitors. A couple from the Netherlands were very interesting. I am always amazed at how people from far away find their way to our little town to visit. I also had visitors just because they watched the Hallmark movie "The Christmas Card" which was filmed in Nevada City back in 2006 I think. They want to visit the actual spots that were in the film. Some come year after year and just to be in the magic of it all.
Not much happening here in the creative front. I have been trying to catch up from being gone so much. My brain is busy thinking of all the wonderful projects I should be working on. At least that is a start. Next I just need to put my thoughts into action.
Saturday I literally ran away. I even told Mr. C that I was running away. I drove down the hill and met with my sister. We managed to flitter away the day just talking and sharing a long leisurely lunch. I didn't even do any responsible errands like grocery shop which is almost mandatory when down the hill. I just needed space and time to relax. Thank you Marie for indulging me. Thank you Mr. C for understanding my lapse in responsible errands.
May you each find your peace and enjoy Creative Bliss...
