My Bad?

I won't even say what a bad BLOGGER I am, why state the obvious?
It isn't that I don't want to Blog or that I don't have anything interesting going on, I just suck at time management.
We all have health problems and daily life  that gets in the way. Why whine about it. We aren't unique in that respect. But some of us also do interesting things, go to interesting places or belong to interesting groups.
Since I live somewhat isolated , my groups are my social activity and let me tell you, they keep me very busy.
I hope to find time to reconstruct this BLOG and be able to list the groups. Please note that purple button on on the left. That is OUR (mine and Cherie's) Mixed Media Studio. We are no longer a part of CDA, they have moved on to Facebook. We decided not to move our group and stay put on Yahoo, so check us out. WE have 4 challenges a year plus swaps. We also have a Paper Studio(owner-Robyn) that is part of us, but is independent with Challenges and swaps. It is a fun place to visit. No matter what you are into, we are one happy family. So click on that purple button.
I also own Sharing Our Mixed Media Art, also a yahoo group.Norma moderates that group and it is another fun place to visit. I really should get a button for that one as well.
So what have I been doing? I got a bit crazy with swaps. I can't help myself sometimes. Everyone does such fun stuff. I wanna play!!
So here is a peek at what I've been up to:

This was a mini bottle swap. We had to make them into pendants. I put the peacock bottle (yes that is a tiny peacock inside the bottle) on a chain for my partner. Seeds of Hope was sent along with a special


I received this beautiful captured fairy from Edwina (That was a swap in my SOMMA group)

My altered bottle challenge in My Mixed Media group (Purple Button) That was fun and I get to keep the bottle. Working on another spooky one.
In Art For The Creative Mind we had an Accordion card swap. This was a first for me. As I've said, I'm  not the best card maker. The theme was Roosters.

Card closed and then opened. Cool huh? It was my very best effort so I was happy with it.

ATC's from My ATC-Fun group. Theme was clocks. Loved the bling and the clocks. Hope my partner s liked them.

These ATC's went to the Netherlands. Those antique needle packs have a price of 10 cents. What a hoot!

This Altered match box went to Australia. Guess what the theme was LOL

I had a bonus

challenge in my Mixed Media Studio called Garden art. I made a tippy flower pot totem as well as one ,seen in the background, out of glass vases, goblets, bowls etc. I made two and I'm working on a third. I love them.
This was before the tippy pots were added. That's about it for now. I've made more stuff but I don't want to assault your eyes too much. You may not come back LOL As you can see, I stay busy. It keeps my mind off of other things.
I've gotten some lovely gifts in swaps that I will have to share. But for now...I have to get on with my day.
Wishing you sunshine in your heart today and aways.....

  1. Love everything Kathie, you are such a talented gal! That rooster card is very impressive for your first accordian card, hope I can do as good a job with our Zcard swap at the Mixed Media Studio! Your swap partners are very lucky, can't wait to see what you get in return. Deb
