~Mermaid Swap Goodies Show and Tell~

Hello my wonderful and fabulous Bloggy Friends!!

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while!  Though I was warned against it, I started a studio re-organize thinking it couldn't possibly take so long....well....2 weeks and a few projects behind, I finally have a clean space to create in.  I now have a dedicated shipping area so I don't have to move what I'm working on aside to package up orders!  Loving it so far!

Anyways...on to why we are really here. To see some Mermaids!!
This proved to be an awesome swap, and though I am still waiting on one last Mermie girl from Heidi (she was sick, so I gave her an extension.....that's the nice thing about making up your own swap....you can bend the rules, too...haha!) I knew this was going to be a photo and link heavy post. 

I'll be sure to show you what Heidi sends on my next post.

You might want to go get something to drink...and maybe a notebook to jot down some newfound blogs.  I know I not only got to swap with some of my favorite artists and friends here in Blogland....but, I got the pleasure of meeting some new ones, as well :)

...Oh, and before I get started, I wanted to thank everyone for all the extras that were included in my packages!  I loved recieving each and every piece of mail and am just tickled that you all wanted to participate to begin with!
But, in the interest of keeping the pictures to a minimum, I am just showing the main/mermaid related art/goody for each participant :)

Okay....these are posted in no particular order....get your diving caps on...and let's go swimming!

I got my mermie in the mail and can't wait to post about her, which I need to do...she's already hanging in my front room, I'm becoming quite a collector of your awesome art. yay!! :) Thank you millions!

Magaly Guerrero said...

Your talk about your studio cleaning/reorganizing makes me a bit hesitant to tackle my closet and the reorganization of my writing space. I wanted to do that before Halloween, but anyone who has seen the bottom of my closet would probably laugh at me just about now *sigh*

These mermaids are fantastic. You lucky, lucky girl! I love all the colors, shapes, glitter, the sorrowful and sexy eyes. There is a bit of everything. Perfect! Enjoy them ;-)

Tammie Lee said...

Jennifer said...

Ahhh these ladies are incredible! I so wish I could have participated and wasn't on my nasty leave of absence! I love how everyone is so different, and in different mediums and art forms too! Gosh I love this bloggity world. I am so very down to skype with you soon! Let me know a good time for you, my school week is like this:
