Personal Swap for Victoria Kamalova October 2013 1 (1)

I love having a pen pal! Did anyone else have pen pals growing up? With internet the art and joy of a pen pal are all but lost. Lucky for me I found mine on craftster.org. Victoria and I swap bits of art but we also swap small tidbits of our lives and culture with each mailing we make. I look forward to it so much that even when I don’t have time for an organized swap on craftster I always make time for our personal swaps. This is a spot of joy in my life. I wonder what others’ joy spots are….

Lotus Nights Meditation – International Art Journal Swap

Art Journal Swap_Irina October 2013 1

This is the final art journal I have to complete and send on it’s way. This one will be returned to Irina in Russia.

Her theme is flowers. A perfect theme for me because flowers are one of my top art themes. I love flowers, all shapes, sizes, scents, colors, season, you name it they are happiness to me.

I love what I accomplished! AND…hold the presses, my dear sweet partner….drum roll please…..said it was “nice, really nice”. A miracle has happened!
