I love collages and adore frogs… So why should I not combine it all into frog collages? While everyone else is still doing birds, I’m doing amphibians (!), hoping to find art lovers as in love with frogs as I am. In my stash of papers I found a print of a frog, altered digitally […]

Valentine’s day around the corner

Sitting here with a cup of coffee. I’m overwhelmed with the response to the postcard swap, and wow, thanks for all your kind comments on my Dixieland Tree Embroidery! I’m glowing with pride.
