My new 2017 calendar is ready for purchase! Please click on the Lulu link, in the right margin and it will take you to the page where you can place your order. This is a 12 month calendar, glossy, measuring 8.5" x 11" - featuring 12 unique digital images that I've created. These can be matted and framed, as the months go by, so it is pretty much like getting 12 prints for only $14.99. Pretty cool, I think =) Please let me know if you have any questions!

For the Take a Word Challenge - Vintage


This week, for the Take a Word Challenge, Marie has given me the opportunity to be Guest Artist. And the topic is Vintage - hooray! I always love taking part in these weekly challenges. The prompts never fail to put me into a creative frame of mind, and I love meeting the other artists and seeing what wonderful creations they come up with. Please stop by the challenge blog today and have a look. Thank you again, Marie! xo

This is dreamily romantic Peggi. We both used vintage ladies and text in our pieces. I love all the details that seem like pieces of jewellery or precious stones. It's really beautiful.
