So come and play!!!! We have 70 players listed...I'd love to see all of you send in cards!!
Well, I know my posts are few and far between now....lots of construction going on in my house right now. I came back from Paris...to my new studio being worked on!!! Yeah!!! It was a tinker shop that runs down the side of my house. The previous owners had it as a wood working shop. We...are converting it into an art studio:):)
....here is what it looked like a week ago....
....and as of last night...it has an A/C unit....electricity for sewing machines, irons, and anything else I might need to do...and walls :):) Did you notice the garage door is now gone!!! A french door was put in its place.....YES!!!
Do you see the new door on the right? That goes into my kitchen in the house:) The Drywall guys are here again this morning to finish the job. The tile goes in tomorrow...by later next week I can move in!!! Yeah!!
Any way.....not much art is getting done..cause I can't leave the house...and all my stuff is at the art condo:):) By December I will be able to bring ALL my supplies and art things under one roof again!!!! YES!!! I'm ready for my quilting/fabric/sewing side to be in the same place as my paint/papers/mixedmedia side. I just want to be able to sit down and art...no matter what mood I'm in:):)
This month I decided to give some of my extras away...by way of a contest. I had 3 judges go through all the cards and pick their favorite card. That card maker would not only get their 3 cards...but 5 extras as well....total of 8 cards!!!!
Here are our lovely, handsome, and wonderful judges and their picks:)
Judge Florida Joy picked Kelly Watts card!!!!
Judge Daughter picked... Anne -Marie Waite's card!!!!
and Judge Hubby picked Mivi Woodard's card!!!
Congratulations Ladies!!! Well, I will have to do this again in a month or two :):)
As you all know this month I flew to Paris...and took the trade with me to Florida..to swap them and mail them from there...with Florida Joy's help....
She helped me sort , trade, and package them all up....Thanks Sweetie..and it was great seeing you!!!!
Well...that was AWESOME!!! Hope you enjoyed the show and tell...
