A Postcard From Minnesota.

The other day a postcard came from Minnesota, and it’s a beautiful piece from the artist blogger Judy Bergerson, who’s blog is Jackpine Studio. Interestingly the card was mailed without an envelope, and came through the mail system undamaged!

I really enjoy these exchanges, I get to build a collection, and meet other bloggers. I have a couple other exchanges lined up, but I’m being very slow finishing them. I’ll mail one to Minnesota tomorrow.

I’ve several things on the go in the studio at the moment, and one of my side projects is a postcard exchange. At the moment I’m working on five cards, and they seem to be going slowly. This often happens with me. I’ll putter about slowly, and then all at once I’ll finish things off in a big burst of energy.

Spring has been very nice on Prince Edward Island this year, and my attention has been drawn to the outdoors. I’m spending as much time as I can playing in the park with the kids. But I do have one project in mind that can be done outside, and that is the sorting of paintings that are in storage and need to be broken up, edited, and destroyed. Strange as it might seem this is a project I’m actually looking forward to.

Yesterday I received a great postcard from the blogger and artist Cath Rennie. A few weeks ago we arranged an exchange, and hopefully she will receive my card this week.

Her work is a beautiful piece of art, and I’m really delighted to add it to my collection. It’s one f those pieces that I will spend a lot of time looking at, and each time I’ll find something new. Cath has two great blogs and you should check them out. Settle and Chase, and Blanket and Bone.

You've Got Mail!

You've Got Mail!

Yesterday I went to my mailbox and found a envelope that wasn’t a bill or a piece of junk mail. It was something I knew was coming, but I was still excited to find a piece of personal mail addressed to me from the blogger Andy Parkinson of Patternsthatconnect.

A few weeks ago we decided to exchange postcards. We’ve been following each others blogs for a couple of years now, and I was very happy to take part in this project. The card is a great, and beautiful new addition to my art collection, and I’m planning on framing it up and displaying it in my studio.
