Happy New Year!

To all of you who stop by and visit my little corner of the web, I wish you a happy and creative new year! I hope that 2011 is the year that you paint, doodle, collage, or sew your way to bliss...perfect your skills...take a class...try something completely new...find an art buddy...get published...start your own business...exhibit in a gallery...rev up...slow down...whatever it is that makes your soul sing and your heart happy.

I don't know what 2011 will bring, but my hope is that

Thank you for all of your comments, kind words, and bloggy friendship throughout the past year. Your presence here means so much and inspires me to keep on creating and sharing. I sincerely hope that 2011 brings the best of everything for you!

IF - Mail

For this week's Illustration Friday theme of MAIL, I thought I would re-post a little collage that I did a while back for this sketchbook swap. I filled an entire moleskine sketchbook with mail-related words and images since the theme of the swap was "my favorite."

List It Tuesday - Fun With Snow

I could have made a list of all the weather phrases we've been hearing lately--winter storm warning, lake effect snow showers, heavy squalls, blowing and drifting, blah blah blah. But instead, I made a list of some fun things to do with snow. Here's hoping for a snow day!

Skate on over to artsyville and check out the rest of the lists on this List It Tuesday.

IF - Phenomenon

A crackling, light-up-the-sky, ear-splitting thunder storm is my favorite weather phenomenon. Of course, only when I'm on the inside looking out. I find the sound of rain and thunder somehow very comforting.

List It Tuesday - Camera Mumbo Jumbo

I can't seem to shoot a decent photo to save my life. So, either--I'm the world's worst photographer or my crappy old camera is just not cutting it. I'm hoping it's the camera, so I've asked Santa to bring me a new one for Christmas. I just want a nice point and shoot camera that will take decent pictures I can post here of finished art or work in process. But all this camera mumbo jumbo is making my head spin! There are so many choices. Even if I narrow it down to one brand and a specific price range there are still too many options to sift through.

So I'm asking you--my fellow bloggers--for a little help. Which camera do you have? Do you love it? Do you hate it? Why? What features are a must have? I'm looking for something under $200 that is easy to use and can fit in my purse. Help me please!

And then hop on over to artsyville for another week of list love.
