Postmark'd Art

I joined Postmark'd Art in July 2004 which began my wonderful journey into making postcards to trade. In 2005, we had a website which was maintained by a webmaster. In October 2011, Franki Kohler, our fearless and kind leader, decided it was time for a change. Now Franki, Lynn Chinnis and I work together to maintain the website. We are serious about promoting fiber art, fiber postcards and our wonderfully creative members. I encourage you to check out the website because it is a great place to be inspired and it is not just about postcards.  

Lynn Chinnis does the First Friday Studio Tour and my studio is this month's tour. So if you want to know more about my studio space which is the second largest bedroom in my house, please check it out. I didn't even clean before taking the photos! I am happy when I was asked that the place wasn't a total disaster. I am very messy when I am in the creative zone. I drop lots of fabric and other things on the floor.

I have been writing a three part piece on postcard backs. When I began I truly didn't think I would have so much to say! The first installment was on May 30th, the second installment  will appear tomorrow June 6 and the final installment will be on June 13. 

To everyone who shared stories about people making them feel terrible about their failures, you have my heartfelt sympathy. Too many of us have been there.  A friend shared that she calls these people "balloon busters." Isn't that a great way to view them? All I can say is release those people with love and move on.

We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch.
