February 01, 2011 Winter Wonderwhat

Well, today is my first posting to this blog.   We have had rain, freezing rain, sleet, snow, and as that continues, here comes the wind.    I hope that my trees make it through this ordeal and that we keep our power.

Of course my dog, Rose, has ventured out several times today, in hopes that the neighbor dog, Lucy comes out to play.   

This is a dated picture of her but it shows her general character. 

On a different note:   I'm just about to send my cards for the Vintage Swap at http://creativeswaps.blogspot.com/     I've done several local swaps but this is the first swap I've participated in online, so I'm excited to see the results.     It was a fun process and Lenna provided excellent directives, while still allowing us each to bring our creative persona to the table.

Here are my submissions.  They pale in comparison to others I've seen.

This one is my favorite and the last one I created.

I watercolored inserts for each card.


  1. Gosh, your cards look wonderful! I'm honored that they are part of your very first post to your blog. I can't wait to receive them and will let you know when they arrive! Your dog is really cute too!

  2. These are lovely! Love the hats. I used hatted ladies in my swap cards as well.

  3. Trish you did GREAT! and welcome to Blog Land - I think you are off to a great start. I'm a newbie to for all these swap things but Lenna is a wonderful host...sounds like you had as much fun as I did!
