Meet Dante...

This is my 5th year in the LIBERATE YOUR ART POSTCARD SWAP, hosted by the ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS KAT SLOMA of KATEYESTUDIO!  I have all the postcards that I have received over the years displayed in my art studio.  They all bring me JOY!  
In my previous post, you can see Dante on my decked out envie that carried my postcards cross-country to Kat! 

My first postcard reminds us to "BE IN THE MOMENT"...for in a moment, life can change!  A very cool collage by Mary Claire from Chicago!  

Postcard # 2 is a lovely black and white photograph taken at the Florida Botanical Gardens of very big bamboo!  All carved up by visitors who did not heed the sign that said...
"PLEASE DO NOT CARVE THE BAMBOO"!  This card is from Elissa, in Kat's town of Portland OR, who unfortunately did not have her pocket knife on her this day!  Guess you'll just have to go back again:)

Postcard # 3 arrived from the Greek Island of Dodecanese, Rhodes and has a wonderful message for all artists.  Margea says, "Find something you love and never let go!"

# 4 in the swap is from Darlene. This postcard reminded me that I have a wonderful collection of old cameras.  Hope you will pop in to visit Darlene for abit of her Peace, Love and Photography! 

Postcard # 5 hails from Susan in South Florida.  Like me, Susan loves the color purple, and this flow painting project looks like it was great fun to create! 

And of course, last but not least...a gem among gems (rock crystals) is from our WONDERFUL HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTEST...KAT SLOMA!  Thank you, Kat for bringing us all together here, from all over the world, to share our individual love of art and creativity! 

A few side swaps that I received...

This is Plum, official greeter in "forget me not forest" at
Two Crow Cottage, home of  HAPPY HERBS SOAP by Nina! 

From Peggy Choate, who has just published an Adult Coloring Book, entitled LOTUS TRIP!  How wonderful!

This lovely work of art is from Terry Owenby.  A paper thin vintage hanky, hand-stitched to a pink linen tablecloth.  My, my!

Mail art is great fun! 

With much Aloha to one and all...thank you for stopping by!
