I was invited to participate in another ART exchange by Michelle Allen of Close2MyArt. This year instead of solely doing Christmas ornaments Michelle opened the art swap up to any form or medium, the rules or rule I should say, were to hand make something you'd want to receive yourself. I procrastinated (again!)...I was so torn on what to make, at first I thought I'd sew something...but I couldn't seem to wrap my brain around anything specific that wouldn't be something everyone prolly already had.

Long time no blog...that's what happens when the sun comes out in Seattle! I've been green thumbing it in the backyard, getting our veggie garden ready for the spring.
