A beautiful friend who believes she has an ugly smile I was taking photos of her four children and caught her smiling. When I showed this to her, she couldn't deny that she does, indeed, have a wonderful smile.
When my youngest was three, I had a baby who only lived 30 days. His name was Noah. Ever since then, a fingernail moon has been called Noni's Moon. HIs little sister said "Noah" but it came out "No-nee." When Noah was born and thirty days later he died, the moon looked like this- from that point on, my older daughter and I called it a Noni's Moon. He would be 22 years old in October of this year, and we still remember his moon.

|I joined this swap again this year, after having participated in it last year. I love it so much! Kat Sloma of www.KatEyeStudio.com is the host. It is an international swap and each participant submits five postcards that are photographs of their art - photography, painting, fiber arts, mixed media, whatever one's art may be. All of the postcards are then sent to Kat, and she sends them back out to all of us, plus she sends one of her own to everyone. We, of course, provide the postage and address labels to ourselves.|
|Siobhan Wolf of www.wolftale.wordpress.com sent this one, and it literally brought tears to my eyes when I saw it. There is something about it that spoke powerfully to me, and I am keeping this in a very visible place. She wrote "Greetings Beautiful Soul -- Thank you for spreading joy in this world. You are truly a blessing! Wishing you all manner of good things" Right back at you, Siobhan!|
This is "Asna - Donkey of Stubbornness " a photo of a painting in acrylics by Linda Ursin. Her website is http://heksebua.com/gallery and she wrote on the back of the card "Be stubborn and you'll get there" It has a rune hidden within the painting. (She practices witchcraft, but if that offends you, her art can be seen at the "gallery" tab). She is right, stubbornness to be creative and a good steward of my time is needed in my life!
Finally, but not least, is Kat Sloma's postcard, entitled "Adorned and Alone." Love it!
I have made some wonderful friends through this swap, both last year and this, and hope to make even more as the days go on. Below, you can see the Swap Blog Hop and if you want to add yours, you can do so. It will change as Kat's changes (the Other Kat haha)
I hope if you have visited here due to the Swap Hop that you will leave a comment to let me know you were here! Thanks!
Kat, the Arty one

This is a neighbor's cat, Jimmie Johnson, who likes to hang out in our back yard, near the bird feeders. He is best friends with all of our pets, both dogs and the one cat who has indoor/outdoor priviledges
I am starting my 365 Project today, since I failed miserably before. I joined Samantha Bennett's 365 Club today, through http://TheOrganizedArtist.com and I'm so excited!
