Great additions to the gallery!!! And @irid3sc3nt, I personally like all mediums used! I've been on a hand drawn kick lately, but sometimes do assemblage.

I received today from greybird for my cabin/lodge theme! She sent a cute card with a hand drawn pumpkin on the envie Wink



Here is a closer view of the ATC! She drew a lovely pine branch with a very realistic pinecone! Very nicely done! Eventually I want to make a collage with this theme for wall art.



Thanks so much greybird!!!! Love it!

Awe, cute kitties!!!

I received an amazing ATC from nooo today! She had originally claimed for birds but changed it to dragon instead!!!

So here is Dragonfrog Baby!



So cool! Love the froggie eyes!! Thanks so much nooo! Love it!!! On a side note, we usually have quite a few tree frogs around my house and love to watch them. But other than a heavy rainy week in July, its been extremely dry here and have had very few frogs this year Sad I'm trying to imagine that they are turning into dragons now!

Yay! So glad Dino made it home safely! I already miss having Dino around! I went on a road trip over the weekend and was going to take some pictures with Dino...but then remembered that he went back home Sad


McCoy made it back safely today as well! I just got the package about half an hour ago so I haven't fully went through all the different books and papers Annchen sent! She sent a huge package!!!


Upon opening he box, I see McCoy has a travel buddy!

About half of the package laid out!

The other half of the package including a few newspapers, brochures, and catalogues! And of course a really nice hardcover scrapbook of the adventures!

Annchen made McCoy his own geocaching booklet and stamp! Excited to try and add to it!

A pretty ceramic fish, intricate metal fox bookmark and a guide to the Swedish culture Wink

Some really nice skincare samples, some really nice postcards, the innards of a Kinder Egg (since the candy can't be sent), some toffees and whiskey candy, and a cool 3D leopard magnet!

A sample of the cool and professional looking photo journal of McCoy's adventures with Annchen filled with ticket stubs and other mementos!!


Thanks so much Ann for being such an awesome host to McCoy and an amazing swap partner!!!!! Maybe one day I can travel with McCoy to visit Sweden in person!

Thanks Wildfyre for organizing!!!!

So glad you like it greybird! And the envelope is made from a gelli print I received from Audio earlier this year. I'm sure she would remember how she made them!

I received a Halloween ATC from mariak today!!!



Love all the different elements she incorporated! I especially love the sweet little Jack-o-Lantern! The "yellow" dots are actually a metallic gold. Thanks so much Maria!!!!

Yay! First to post! I received an ATC from greybird today! She was in the path of Irma so she sent off before the storm hit! I hope all is well with her!

Anyways, she sent this great bird themed ATC of a drawn Junco in the snow! I actually get quite a few of these little cuties in my yard during the winter!



Its done in Prismacolors! Very nicely done! Thanks so much greybird! I hope you made it safely through Irma!

We went on one last trip today! We went to Mackinaw City which is the top point of the lower peninsula and where Lake Michigan and Lake Huron meet. Its a beautiful place with lots of touristy stuff to do!


The Mackinac Bridge (AKA The Mighty Mac) which is 5 miles long!

The historic lighthouse...


Some different sights around town...

Michiganders that live below the bridge are called "Trolls" by the "Yoopers" that live in the Upper Peninsula. So I am actually a troll lol!

The carved words at the bottom read "Gitchee Goomee". A Native American name for Lake Superior which borders the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Canada. You can see the blending of the American flag and the Canadian flag in the paint!




A scenic overlook.

Then we stopped by The Cross in the Woods which has the largest crucifix in the world. I am not Catholic, but it really is a sight to behold. There are several other shrines and statues around the grounds.



I took a lot of photos today and there are a few different ones on my Instagram page. Wink It was a beautiful day for a nearly 400 mile round trip!

Congrats Wildfyre!!!

I finally took Dino on the River Walk downtown last weekend. It was flooded on and off the past few months. Its nice and dry now!







The Alma school mascot is a panther and the city had 5 panther statues around the city (one came up missing earlier this year unfortunately). Different student designs were chosen for the artwork. Here are two of them!







And since the police department was along the route, we stopped for a quick photo op!





Hoping to get up to the Mackinaw Bridge this weekend for one last adventure before Dino has to head back.
