Inspired

     I was able to score some more good buys on ebay.....I was like a little kid at Christmas when each of these boxes arrived.  They were really great buys and I have a lot in mind to get some craftiness going with these Victorian Ladies.  I  just got my last shipment before I got the Fashion Plate CD from Lisa.  When I opened the CD and there were 350 images including Marie Antoinette I was so happy....I couldn't wait to get started.  In the collage below in true Victorian fashion I saw a feather on the ground....resisted picking it up.....but what the heck I was with my mom and she just smiled when I put it in my pocket.  So I was happy to put a real feather on the collage below.
I was so excited to see some pink and green images--I was able to find some paper and ribbons and get right to work.

     So I have been going on and on about the CD from Lisa Kettel and I thought it would take a couple of weeks to have some things made to show you.  I surprised myself and crafted each morning this weekend.  I have a lot more in the works, but I was able to finish two pieces.  I didn't know much about the new magazine launch of Marie by Somerset---I keep seeing some snippets----I can't wait!!!!!!!  In anticipation I am crafting like crazy.  I have decided in April to change from a Spring and Easter theme and devote my banner and etsy shop to Marie.  There is a Marie Antoinette mail art network I joined last night.  Under some encouragement from you I will try to host my first swap.  It will be a Marie Antoinette Artist Trading Card swap so you have time to think about it.  I am off to make some more creations----I haven't had so much fun creating in a looong time.

Geralyn, I am so excited about your swap! Great work. I know how you feel about holiday decorating once the kids are older. It isn't as much fun. But you are creating which is more than I can say. I have to get motivated, your post helped. Thanks, Pam
