Love is in the Air...and so is Siberia!

Brr, it's cold here! -40 degrees cold! But then so is the rest of the US! 2009 is not starting out as slow as molasses on the homefront, thougth...I love those lazy kind of days when there is lots and lots of time to snuggle in, hunker down and do really fun things. Mostly here, the days have been crazy! Minutes whiz by, then hours and days.

I've joined a couple of really fun swaps...I'll have stuff in the next day or so to share. Been working to stock my humble little shop...some cards and collages. Thinking, too, about the unfolding year ahead. What will it hold? I haven't even thought of much I'd like to accomplish in any area of my life. Well, maybe I've thought a little, but only in gross generalities. I'll have to ponder that!

Hope you are staying warm wherever you are. Maybe, if you're cold, you could make some of this...I love her posts!

Here are a few of the cards I've been drawing and doodling for Etsy. I love the simplicity of one or two colors.

Many years ago I was completely enamored with embroidery, particulary silk ribbon. I'll have to show you some of the projects I began but never finished. It's been on my mind for a long time to finish those pieces and use embroidery with paper. That's where these collaged and embroidered hearts come into play...a little plunge into that world again.

I so remember you're trying to teach me that silk ribbon embroidery - me and Lana. Though I never was able to accomplish it I still find it so lovely! It truly is a Good Day! In His peace, Renee
