Playing Catch Up

If your like me it seems like summertime just flies by.
So much to do before the snow flies once more.
I've gotten so far behind these past few weeks. So now's my time to show you all the Wonderful things I've been receiving in all those swaps I played in.

I was lucky enough to have Kimberly as my swap partner. She sent me this WAY KEWL Altered Altoids tin. This was her First Steampunk piece. Can you believe it!!! I just adore everything she creates but this takes the cake!!! Love the ride! See more pics on her blog at Art Joy Stuff

Then I played in a swap for Blissful art. We were to make charms from vintage things. Here's the ones I received back. Pretty great charms aren't they!!! Top L to R- Peace Schuyler, Becky Swartzlander,Marsha Mees,Wendy Aspinall,
BottomL to R -Kimberly Laws, and mine.

A few Atc Swaps. This one was for Beware Pirates at VPI.
The talent in this group just blows me away.
Top L to R.-Kris Dickinson,Liz DeWitt,Wendy Aspinall.
Bottom L to R.- Laura Carson, Connie Koutsourelis, April Dudko.
 Love them all !!!

Way back when I shared the ATC's I made for the
VPI group for the Corsets/ Dress Forms swap.
 Here's the darlings I received back from these talented gals.
Top L to R- Kris Dickinson, Michelle Carrier,Terri Daugherty.
Bottom L to R.-Sandy Scholz,Martina Fuchs,Candy Colwell.

and From The Altered Domino book .
Wendy created this wonderful Steampunk Domino book.
You can see more of Wendy's art here at Bliss Angels

These weren't for a swap but a couple pieces I made for some dear Blog friends for their Birthday.
They weren't quite finished in this photo. I went back and added a little text.
Hope it made their day just a bit more special.

If you get a chance check out these amazing artists blogs. Well worth the visit!
Hope your all enjoying your summer.
