Friends I know from atcsforall.com have joined up and started new fun shop and art site


check it out – fun place and plans to grow into all kinds of wonderful things.

The current Wonderstrange Arts site offers retail shops, but we also offer a creative blog, where visitors can find free downloads and tutorials, regularly updated and expanded by all five of us. We really hope that our ideas and giveaways on the blog will make you regular visitors to the site—and you can sign up for automatic updates via email.

Down the road, we plan to create a wonderful online bazaar atmosphere at Wonderstrange Arts, where we will host seasonal online art festivals, creativity retreats, and occasional artists-in-residence. We’re starting small, but we anticipate growing this little sideshow into a virtual three-ring circus. Come on over and take a peek—and if you like what you see, bookmark our site! We’ll be adding inventory and blog posts all the time. We hope to see you there!

found another cool site – love how she does her overlays on her collages and she does somthing I’ve thought about but haven’t gotten off my duff and tried – she prints out photo’s on old book pages – the blank aged ones at the front and back of books. cool look


My partner got her package in a swap over at Craftsters.org – this is one of the items I made for her – I like how it turned out – now to make one for me 🙂 it’s layers of fabric, charms and some wool roving for steam – thinking about another large one for hubby – something along the cowboy theme – maybe “a cowboy is only as good as his horse” and use a picture of his old horse CodyRed – still thinking on that one.

they are now accepting submissions for Their fall-themed rolodex contest! Rolodexes should be 3″ x 5″ including one side for art and one side for addresses/contact information – so go read up on it and get some rolos entered. I need to do that myself.
