Then I opened the package and found this bright and breezy flower and swirl-covered carton inside. Doesn't it just make you feel that the sun is shining?
Check out Marci's blog to see more of her work:
Wow! I can hardly believe that there are now only a handful of spaces left to fill.
I'm in full production mode again, and intend to send out the next five cartons on the first of the month.
I'll be posting examples of carton art I'm making at the weekend, but of course, I won't tell who is getting what... (grin). Actually, what I tend to do is pack cartons and then affix labels randomly, so even I'm never quite sure who gets what.

It's been exciting to see how the spaces have filled over the past couple of weeks. There are now only ten slots left! Today I welcome Norma Soulet. Take a look at the gorgeous work on her blog.

Just added another three artists to the blogroll.
Kathy Rose (no blog yet)
Kathy writes: I do a bit of everything: sewing, embroidery, collage (really, really interested in collage and altered art), clay. I like edgy art, not so much the cutesy stuff [...]. I want to begin to work in metal and assemblage art and have been gathering tools and supplies together. I just need the time (but don't we all!).
I'm now asking artists without blogs to send a few paragraphs that describe of the kind of work they do. That way, we can at least get an idea of their styles and interests. (And -- hint, hint -- it's quick and easy to set up a blog, and it costs nothing...)

The carton itself is beautifully decorated with beads and beaded ribbons and topped by an arty-delicious (guaranteed fat-free) muffin.
Unpacking the carton brought one delight after another: handmade beads, a lovely little tag for my collection, a miniature book, and this breathtaking necklace. I intend to wear the necklace often, as it's so me!
Thank you, Sammy, for these wonderful art gifts!
What a lovely surprise it was to open the package and find all the wonderful things Arlee included. Just take a look at the sumptuous bauble ties. And the contents are divine, too.
As an art doll lover, I adored the doll. I stand in awe of artists who work creatively in fabrics. The bird will find a home in my special collection which hangs on a rail in the bedroom.
Many, many thanks for the lovely surprises, Arlee!
Marci's carton arrived yesterday, and she's posted about it on her blog.
