Cathy Minerva's Art-in-A-Can to meMe & Pretty Paper Posies Tina

I was approached to be in the swap featured at
by the amazing queen of pixies Cathy Minerva at
I had the honor of meeting Cathy at ZNE's Castle in the Meadow event '08
Above is the fabulous art she sent me.
The gist is that over 50 gals from around the world swap their art with 3 others, packaged in a milk carton or container. I'm swapping back with Cathy,
Mollye Self,
& Tina Curtis
who was my roomie at the ZNE Convenzione 2008! She's a wiz at ATC's & most things she touches. I'm looking forward to getting my carton from her.

I will post pics of mine when finished. I went yesterday to Menards & bought some unfinished paint cans to use for my containers. We don't drink anything in a carton & I wanted something different. I got to work on them some last night & have made ATC's, paper dolls, faux cakes so far to fill them.

It's just so much fun to be friends with fellow artists that you admire. Thanks girls & I'm loving this.
Creativity is a natural extension of our enthusiasm.

Oh Jill!! How exciting for you! I bet you're having a ball creating something for the swap~
Boy do I envy you! Being able to attend the ZNE Convenzione had to be amazing! I received an email invite to the 2009, but it's not in my budget this year..shoot! It's a long way to travel from WV, the expenses would kill me. Are you going again this year? If so, have fun for me too!!! lol..
I look forward to your paint can creation, good luck with it and happy creating~

Hey Jill,
You are too kind! Can't wait to see my AIAC. I am revamping my studio to have some nice space for all my art swap pieces received. They are such great inspiration to me as are you, my sweet friend.

hey sugar

can't wait to get started on the art in a carton...Jilly, that would be great if you went to Silver Bella - it would be so fun to kplan it out together - we could room together and save costs on that and share a car - cuz I AINT depending on anyone this time...:) let me know and start saving now - cuz it'll be around 600.00 for just the classes and such not to mention air and room and food and shopping...but if you are serious I am so in with you.

let me know
