In the crazy quilt of life, I’m glad you’re in my block of friends. ~Author Unknown
I had so much fun taking part in Kat Solma’s Liberate Your Art postcard exchange. I decided to do some patchwork postcards in honor of quilting bees.
Sometimes I feel like I was born in the wrong century, I love that pioneer women gathered together to chat and sew on a regular basis, they made quilts for warmth and as an art form to hang on walls. There’s something about co-creating that totally engages me. I wish women gathered to create more often and appreciate that at least we gather virtually :)
Most days I feel like I was born at the perfect time. I think technology is so exciting. Things like getting to meet ‘strangers’ via social media is awesome, even if we have not met in person YET, I just adore that we gather regularly online. And, those of you who I am lucky enough to know in person, I feel like I know you better because of our connection here. I’m sooooo grateful for all your kind comments and emails.
I did not read the directions on the exchange and when I went to mail them, I found the instructions and realized that I actually have to send printed cards rather than the originals! Part of me is bummed and part of me is thrilled, I really like how these came out and now I get to live with them longer. But I’m also committed to getting my art out there, I think I’ll frame a couple of these originals and put them up for sale :)
I’d love you feed back… when I print the postcards, should I include my website name on the front of the card like this ↓ or just on the back? And, I always like to know favorites?
Thanks for your help :)
Here are the cards I got in the mail over the past few weeks. It’s been so much fun to network with new artists. I hope I find the owners to all of these beautiful cards.
