    As for other news - all good. I had 2 more pieces accepted into an exhibit at a new museum (both are photographs that fit the theme) and I'm now a freelance journalist for several very local newspapers and am really glad to have this opportunity.
    That sounds like sound advice, first of all I have to get my art table cleared so I can retreat to it during the summer. Put the kids in front of a movie and I can get my (now focused) art fix. And don‘t worry, my kids are mostly outside in the yard and garden so a movie every now and again won‘t harm them

    And congratulations on getting your photographs accepted and on becoming a freelance journalist! That sound so awesome, you should have business cards printed with your name and „Freelance Journalist“ stated as your occupation

    Okay, I finished the last of the cards and the envie for last month. Darned vertigo.

    I have also had time to really look at the fabulous cards and envie I received and here goes thanks (I-traders to follow) to Karenr for the Frida card (I love Frida!), to Skylops with fabulous words of wisdom and lots of hearts!, to Nanner for the card with the chick with the wayyy cool hair (I'm going to have to get me some of that watermelon hair!), to CecileB for the lovely card that will always remind me to dance in the moonlight under trees (or anywhere else for that matter), to Mel for both the gorgeous envie (love that bird!) and the very cool (kewl as Mel would put it) postcard with music and a butterfly for creative inspirations!, to Ann for the cutest darned dog face I've ever seen (the card is lovely and this guy will keep me company), to Gem for the lovely floral and The Present (something many folks don't really appreciate), to fandanie for the fun bird card (I'm pretty sure that's a crow and if it's now, it's now a crow because I have lots of crows on my street and they are really smart song birds - yes they are song birds), and to Acalla for the reminder to Live Boldly. What a fun collection of cards. I shall be keeping these in a special place so that I can look at them from time to time. They all seem to go together. I hope you all are having a fabulous day. I'm doing art today!

    Happy Independence Day, American peeps! Hope you enjoyed your holiday. We went to a pancake breakfast this morning at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum downtown, then came home and hid out in the AC all day. The temp reached 90 degrees today and with the humidity, the heat index (what it feels like to a human) was 103. Brutal. As usual, I'm skipping the fireworks display. Maybe I can find some on TV to watch!

    Fab shares, Mel! Your art is amazeballs as always. And I dig that postcard of the guy and (is that a dog?) belly up to the bar. You find the coolest things.

    Gem! Thanks for your kind words. That wall of greatness is in my studio. I wanted an idea board, but didn't want to be writing or nailing stuff directly on the walls, so I found a thin and wonderful sheet of metal that just uses magnets. (And created cause for things like art magnet swaps, ha!)

    A lot has been going on over here this past month, but I'd like to play this month. I've already got the idea down for the envie.

    I received two more lovely postcards today in the mail. Thanks to The Weavershand for Art is Love (so true, isn't it?) and to dmnh for a very fun, mixed media postcard with what looks like granite on one side (very, very cool) and color, letters, numbers, and a big ? on the other (quite appropriate since art is always a ? - what to use, what to create, how to do that, etc.).
