Come Fly With Me On The Wings Of OWOH!


Hi everyone!
I had so much fun last year flying on the OWOH Magic Carpet Ride that when I saw that sweet Lisa Swifka was going to do it one more time, well of course I had to join in!
It is a blog hop that is for bloggers only and everyone who joins in on the hop will be offering a gift prize to give to at least one of our commentors.
It is such a wonderful way for artist from all different mediums and from all over the world to get to meet each other. I still follow and keep in touch with several that I met last year. FFL!  ;)

If you just happened upon my blog for another reason and would like to fly along with us, click the logo above to go to Lisa's blog for a list of all of the participants.

OK...her's the poop on me...
I have been crafting all of my life and dabbled in almost all mediums, my current love is high-end handmade greeting cards. I draw many of my own images and even illustrate clear and digital stamps for a stamp company. I also design for 7 other craft companies. I have been published in magazines and a coloring technique book. The vast majority of my cards are done in watercolor but I also use Prismacolor pencils with Gamsol and Copic (alcohol ink) pens.

Here are just a couple examples of my stamp illustrations and greeting cards:
remember, you can click on them for a closer look.

My "Flower Bunny" has been made into a clear stamp.

My "Just BeeCause" image is available as a digi stamp.

I created this digital stamp set as a donation to raise money for a friend who has terminal cancer.

My "Monkey Business" illustration was turned into a digi stamp.

My "Bear Hugs" was also turned into a clear stamp.

 As was my "We Go Together Like..." set.

My "Brrrthday Snowman" is a digi set also!

Next to my husband of 30 years, Robert, my son Kurt, and the rest of my family and close friends, there is no one I would rather spend my time with then my crafty online friends. I have made many over the 3 or 4 years I have been card making and blogging. I have had the pleasure of meeting many of them in person at craft conventions and in classes.

I love blogging, sharing my craft and meeting new people.
Other things I love in no particular order:
The smell of fresh cut grass
Songbirds in Spring
Laughing till it hurts
Puppy breath (I know...this is an odd one)
Crab legs
My English Bull child, Zoey
My feline babies, Quilt, Brother and Nother
Coloring like a kid
A clean house
My craft studio
The sound of my son's laughter
Sudden Summer downpours
Walking in the woods looking for wild mushrooms
Setting behind and hugging my soul mate on a Harley ride
Lilacs and Peonies
Double rainbows...well...any rainbow
The Cullens  and Jacob
Foot , hand and head massages
and growing old...beats the alternative!  :)

Enough already...on to the good stuff!

To thank you for visiting my blog and getting to know a little about me I am offering some beautiful hand-dyed silk ribbon that I got from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

Here is a close up of a few of my favorites.

I wanted my gift to be something that would be useful to just about any artist or crafter and this stuff is amazingly beautiful! Pictures never do it justice!
There are about 20 yards of assorted colors!

I am also throwing in a 3" x 9" tag that I made with "One Heart" embellishment on it to symbolize OHOW. I will add some extra tickets so you can fill them in and give to your sweetie or use in your mixed medium projects.

It's against my religion  ;)  to send a half empty box so I will add a surprise element by filling it with as many bits, baubles and mixed media embellishments as I can get in it! I want to make the time it takes you to post a comment worth your while!  :)

All ya need to do is leave a comment to be entered. If you don't have an email link on your blog, you will need to add it to your comment. I will ship anywhere for this special occasion!
Another reason I chose ribbon...it's light enough it can "Fly On The Wings" around the world.

I will announce the winner the evening of the 17th.

I thought I would show you a very quick video of my Zoey after the snow. Hope you get a chuckle!

You might want to scroll all of the way down to the bottom of my page and pause the play list so you can hear the video. ;)

I want to send out a special thanks to Lisa for hosting this one more time. I know it is a ton of work but I think for you it's a labor of love.  :)

Hugs to all,
True :D

AZviaTx said...

Poor Zoe! Did she ever get a place cleared off enought to go pee? Or is she still holding it??? Zoe could've used a wild horse to break the trail to the peegrounds! That was very funny, thanks for sharing. Smile for the day. So, why con't my Copic markers make art as good as yours? I keep trying but all I get are scribblings and smudgies! Just kidding, I love those pens. Finally broke down and picked up a few to use in my first art journal. Having fun and learning some stuff about ME. Cool. A box of ribbons and bits? Oh yeah. Love those grabbags of fun. Good luck on the flight and hope you meet some nice folks & see some cool art. Tina

Hi Trudy!! You have fabulous cards!! I think I'll become your newest follower :)

Kym Weber said...

Hi True~I've been a follower since having the wonderful opportunity to work with you on Really Reasonable Ribbon's design team. I am always so amazed at your beautiful work that you have created. Absolutely love the images you have been designing - just stunning! For now I've somewhat taken a sort of break from cardmaking. Have developed carpal tunnel in my hand which makes it very painful to color or put together projects. Can't give it up completely - too much of a passion. So, I enjoy coming over and seeing your spectacular creations. Thanks so much for this wonderful opportunity to possibly win the fabulous candy. My blog is http://nanaskeepsakes.blogspot.com which also has my email address.


cockney blonde said...
