my art is featured in a treasury and more!!

the lovely and talented cassandra featured my "sweet evening song" collage in her bird song treasury!! what a thrill and an honor! click here to see the treasury (for the life of me, i can't figure out how to post a picture of the treasury page in this post! annoying!) and click here to check out cassandra's blog. she does some wonderful features on uber talented etsy artists!

in other news, after about 10 days of increasing pain in my chest, back and upper right arm i went for x-rays today. i have 2 broken ribs and severe bruising of the cartilage in my chest. how did this happen???!! hmmmmmm . . . i did fall in the florida room on st. paddy's day (and there was no green beer involved!!). i did lift a heavy travel system (stroller and car set combination) into the back of my van to take to a photoshoot on 3/20. i did continue to lift, tote, work and trudge in spite of the pain for all this time. i did learn my lesson and have promised to slow down and take better care of myself. well, at least until the pain is gone. hee hee

i promised you spring photos today. please come back for a visit tomorrow and i'll have some pretties posted!

hi julie! what a beautiful treasury...i love all of those song birdies just chirping away! did you manage to break 2 ribs...when there was no green beer involved?!! okay, are under strict instructions to play quietly in your studio and in your photoshop for at least, um, at least the next six months!! :)

Dang girl! Always heard those broken ribs are painful! Sorry about that, hope you feel painfree very soon. Lovely collage, no wonder she featured it!

Congrats on the treasury.
As for the broken ribs...isn't it funny how when you get to be our age you can actually break things without knowing it!!
I think as we get older we get thougher. Just imagine...a younger person would be crying and complaining.....but here you are on photo
Something to be said for that! Take care.
