I had so much fun during the Liberate Your Art Blog Hop this past weekend. And now I’ve stumbled upon this great upcoming blog-party in October: Le Mysterieux Carnival! Like I already mentioned yesterday: Autumn/Fall is my favourite season and I can’t wait for Halloween, so this is the perfect thing for me!
Besides sigining up online you create your own “Silver Ticket” to be granted admission to the Carnival. During the actual blog-party every participant will have a booth (post) on their blog sharing art, costumes, crafts, jewelry, dolls, puppets, food, books, stories, family photos or recipes. Some might even add a giveaway *hint,hint ^^. Of course, I’ll have a little postcard-booth with some special Autumn/Fall and Halloween themed cards. Uhh, I’m so excited!
Thanks Marfi and Anna for creating this awesome blog-event; I can’t wait to get started on my ticket and booth!
Today I’ve noticed how you can already feel the coming autumn/fall in the air. It’s my favorite season of the year but still: Where the heck have spring and summer gone – really?!
Well, this is a piece of mail art I did in April. It’s called “Green Leaf”. I sent it to Melanie Lucas, the wonderful artist that made this awesome funky scrapbook card I showed you the other day.
And I even wrote a few lines of poetry for the Green Leaf ^^
“If spring were an artist
its favorite color would be
the vibrant and lush green
of a newly sprouted leaf.”
Not too shabby for someone that doesn’t write poems or poetic kind of texts very often, is it?!
Now, since it’s basically autumn/fall I’ll probably create a twin card to this one and call it “Red Leaf” or “Golden Leaf” or something like that ; P. Once I’m finished I’ll share it here with you of course.
I hope you had a great sunday : )
