i am an alpha stamps design team member (check out their site at: www.alphastamps.com) and i work on art projects for their site to be used as samples. the last project i did was submitted in their monthly art contest and it won first prize. i was really surprised, but very happy. it was a little house garland made out of chipboard shapes that you can get on their website. i just decorated them and glued them together to form a row houses. i just finished an alphabet rolodex card for an art friend on atcsforall.com and i've used a collage sheet image that i got from alpha stamps as well. i have uploaded the rolodex card for you to see. if any one is interested in joining a rolodex swap you can become a member at atcsforall.com and look for the rolodex thread in the forums.

i don't quite remember when, where or how i stumbled upon a website that was devoted to doodling but i was amazed at some of the doodles i saw on there. it inspired me to start a doodle journal of my own. sometime later i was at dick blick and saw a small travel journal that had really heavy duty watercolor paper in it. i bought it to start my doodles. i work in it from time to time and really have enjoyed the creative outlet where there is no pressure. i have included a few pages of my art doodles for you to see.

well it appears that two of the online art sites (the mail artist and atcards) i belonged to have suddenly been disbanned. it was quite a shock to me as i had no idea it was coming. i really have to say that since the sites have closed down i miss the jovial banter that happened on them. i hope to stay in touch with several of the artists i met. there were many people on these two sites that i found to be such an inspiration to me. i am hopeful that i will find a new place to hang out with some of the other artists and keep making art. another site i belong to is a private yahoo group for atc's and inchies. today i had a chance to work on an idea for the march atc theme "crowns". here is what i'm working on.
