The little medallion at the bottom of the charm makes me think of a nest full of blue eggs. Thank you, Minori!
The next charm is from my friend Jan Bender. Once again the bird theme is repeated and I love it! I don't know where Jan got this image, but isn't it great?! The bird is soaring across the sky and captured in inside this glass and bezeled frame. Hanging from the frame is this lovely birdcage. Thank you, Jan!

I love receiving surprises through the mail and this was a great surprise for me! I had two cards published in the Take Ten Design Challenge. I love their template designs and challenges.
Oh, yeah, HELLO! I have been without a computer for 4 1/2 months. I have missed all of you! I have not been without anything to do, though. ") I have sent in lots of cards to Stampington for several of their publications. Also, I have some art journals that I will be submitting next week.
So,................stay tuned! So great to be back online!

On the back of the bird, I used a text paper and cut out the letters 'H E A R T" to put across the top of the bird. I cut a heart from a Bingo card (Sara and I both love to use Bingo cards in our artwork). I punched a tiny heart to use in the "free" space. Then I added a faux postage sticker to add to the bottom of the bird.
This is the Mail Art that I created to send to Sara in February for art club. I really didn't want to make a valentine, but wanted to include a heart. So I drew this bird with a heart in his mouth and covered him with decorative paper. I used the front for the addresses and stamps. I used half of a postal cancellation stamp for the beak.

As I cleaned up my art table, I found the rhinestone fleur-de-lis that I had bought for the finishing touch to Abby's gift. So I unwrapped the canvas again, added the rhinestones, re-wrapped the canvas and tied the ribbon around it. It has now been delivered!
