It has been awhile since I posted a Sunday Wrap-up. Sundays seem to have gotten busier lately, usually trying to complete schoolwork Sunday evenings.
But I have had a creative week -finally! I took part in I-Hanna's Postcard Swap and mailed the 10 postcards off this week. I had fun creating them, playing around with paper, paint, stamping and collage.
The backgrounds were mostly subdued colours to represent the dullness of late winter, with just a touch of pink to represent the promise of spring to come.
Then yellow and green were rolled on to represent the coming of spring.
I added photos and stamping, as well as a quote to complete the postcard. Here are a few of my favourites:
I finally finished the April calendar for "The Kathryn's Wheel" calendar challenge.
March was partly filled in. I hope to do better this month!
Spring has finally sprung! Warmer weather, robins and crocuses were all signs this week!
Our gardens are blooming with yellow and purple crocuses:
Our robin has returned to nest on the big ladder on our back porch. Here is a first look at the nest - a day's worth of work! It wasn't there yesterday when we left at noon. Today it was!
500th + Post and Giveaway
This marks my 500th + post! I have also passed my second year blogversary! Hard to believe. As I looked back on my very first post in March 2011, I realized that I have achieved what I set out to do and as well, have added so much in the way of creativity, community and challenge to my life. I look forward to so much more in the year to come.
I have "met" so many wonderful bloggers and admired their work from afar. I have taken courses, responded to challenges and created my own challenges. I may not have completed all of them, but they were so enjoyable. Art has become more central to my life and I want to keep learning and doing.
To thank those who visit and who I visit, for their support and kindness, I am hosting a giveaway! Leave a comment below for your chance to win!
I will draw winning names on the evening of Easter Sunday! Be sure to leave a way to get in touch!
I will be giving away 2 postcards similar to the above, as well as 3 ATCs. If more than 50 leave a comment, I will add more cards to the giveaway!
