This month I have chosen to join the new rage over the pocket letters. I needed to know I could create one! At least one! So I joined a swap with the lovely ladies of Ustream! It made my head hurt! I was so amazed to see how folks just belted out letters within 30 minutes and sometimes less!
Well when I decided to join the swap, I got Miss Anita. I didn't know anything about her so I stalked her FB page and saw she liked Carolyn Dube and Joanne Sharpe. So I kinda felt safe, for 3 minutes! ::laughs:: I never saw any of her art or knew what she liked. So the headaches started. Then I heard a little voice say.. just make something that represented you! I thought HA!! She might return my mail! Anyway, and a gazillion Youtubes, Pinterest searches and Ustreams provided by Dede, Johnna and Zandra who are ALL AMAZING at this.. I wound up doing a mixed media PL. My own art on one side and after a questionaire during a stream asking for the colors folks liked. I learned Miss Anita liked reds and pinks.. ::whew:: I made her pocket letter of which I didn't keep a picture of and I was releved to find out she loved it.. and so did the folks she showed it to. As with all things.. I plan to do better. Now if I could munster up the energy to do about 15-20 more!! :)
I did receive a pocket letter, from Ms Kathy Arbour. WOW.. I had been a fan of hers for over a year! Because of this art journal page I saw her post in Limor Webers Group on FB.
