Blog Hop!! Liberate Your Art 2015

I participated in the Liberate Your Art postcard swap this year that Kat Sloma of Kat Eye Studio, hosted. Oh, what fun this was! I am so thrilled with all of the postcards I received – I’ll need to get a new cork board in the office to present them proudly!

I spent about an hour yesterday taking photos. I had all sorts of props outside with me, I wanted them all to be just right. I hope I’ve done them all justice.

Let’s not keep you in suspense, here are the postcards I received. 🙂

I feel I certainly need to showcase our gracious host’s postcard first. Not only because I like it so much ( fall is my favorite season and I like her use of white space) but because it’s hers.

She’s titled it “Immiment Downfall”; it’s beautiful isn’t it? (I know the photo is upside down and I like it this way but when I get a chance I’ll redo it properly. Sorry, Kat!)

IMG_0649Here is wonderful postcard that comes from Tammy Lee Bradley. I wish I enjoyed tea but though it’s not my cuppa (see what I did there?) I still enjoy looking at this card and can appreciate it’s beauty.

FullSizeRenderHow about a really cool owl? This was created by Lisa Murphy from Reston, Virgina. I’d like to include her blog link but when I went to it to copy it to include it in my post, it says it’s no longer available and that the author has deleted it. I find this owl fascinating.

IMG_0672“Your secret is safe with me” is the title of this postcard. Janet Reid (jreid1031 on Instagram) included this quote about art that I feel is so perfect. “…this isn’t a contest but a doorway, into thanks, and a silence in which, another voice may speak.” By Mary Oliver.


Lastly, but certainly not any less important than the others is this postcard from Denise of Because Nice Matters. I’ve tried the link she provided for her blog, but unfortunately it appears to go to a different blog. At any rate, isn’t this wonderfully amusing? Her inspiration came from working at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Museum in San Francisco. And yes, it seemed appropriate to place this card at the top of our patio chiminea.

IMG_0661Thank you to everyone for a lovely postcard swap! I’m already thinking about what I might do for my postcard next year! And extra thank you to Kat and her team for pulling together yet another successful Liberate Your Art postcard swap!

Enjoy liberating your art, everyone!

  1. Thank you for sharing all of that lovely eye candy.
    Great cards and you photographed them so artfully too.
    Art mail is the best!

    You received a lot of amazing cards! I think Lisa updated her blog link on the Facebook page. I love the Mary Oliver quote. I’m sure you can imagine my brain is ticking away about a way to use it. 🙂 And yes, the girl sitting outside the cafe makes me long for a moment to “just be” outside a quaint little neighborhood place. Great post, Patty-cake!

      Thank you, Chandra, it was a wonderful selection this year.

      And guess what? I’ll have a second post this week – no, really! Watch for it. 🙂

      Thank you, Louise, I’m flattered by your compliments. 🙂

  4. Lovely group of cards. 🙂 I always try to connect with card creators… bummer when I can not read their link (covered by the post office) or can’t find a way to reach them.

      Sheila Marie – I do, too! And it’s a bit of a disappointment that I couldn’t for two of these. But I’m told there might be corrections at the FB page for the swap so I’ll check there and see if I can get the correct blogs for them. Enjoy your day and thank you for the compliments!
