Feelin' Neighborly

For those of you that might not know, I am the moderator of the FiberArt Trading Cards Yahoo Group. This is a gathering of artists who share a love of trading cards, and a unique vision to make meaningful, creative, and of course fiber related art! Although we are using mostly fiber materials, our work may also incorporate the use of different mediums... collage, assemblage, and mixed media.

Not only do I have the fun of coordinating exciting swaps/exchanges and projects for this group, I also have the pleasure of working with some MEGA TALENTED fiber artists. Seeing their work, up close and personal, is a BIG BONUS as moderator!!!

Recently, our group has been working on a special assignment... so I thought I would give you a small peek at the results. Let's JUST SAY... we are DEFINITELY feeling a love of Home in our hearts and in our art!

NOW THIS is my kind of neighborhood!!!!


And speaking of Home Sweet Home! For my birthday, a Very VERY sweet friend, Mary Stanley, sent me one of her INCREDIBLE pieces of art. Carefully tucked inside the package was this EXTREMELY ADORABLE little house.

I was grinning from ear to ear and squealed with delight when I saw it. My husband even came wandering upstairs from the basement to see what all the commotion was about because he could hear me.

Mary knows I am quite smitten with the subject of Home. Plus, I am a HUGE FAN of her work!!!

Oh Trac... these look amazing. I am so sad that my life went haywire and I missed the deadline. I def want to use some of these in the HOME issue of Portals.
