What's on your Workdesk Wednesday: New Year ATCs

 Happy New Year, everyone!
(I am making the number 2 in the picture above!)

My whole family spent the New Year holidays at the beach (the Philippines has the best beaches and is No.6 in Lonely Planet's Top 10 best value destinations for 2011!)  As usual, I brought along a tote of art materials. On my desk are some of the Artist trading cards I made...
I used watercolors and colored pencils...


and I decided to add some paper cutouts and other details.  This is the one I'm working on...
 
(I know, I should have cropped this picture)
Did you see the handmade card I received from Jona? Jona is also from the Philippines and I "met" her through the internet.  One of these days I hope to meet her in person.  Thanks, Jona, for this special card!

If you want to visit the other bloggers joining this first Wednesday of the year's link party, go over to Julia's Stamping Ground.  I didn't get to visit a lot of blogs during the holidays (no internet in the beach house)  but hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things this week, maybe even get to post about my awesome Christmas activities or start on my giveaway for One World One Heart!  Come join in the fun!

Congrats on being number 1 this week. You did good! And I love the ATCs. The faces are all so well done. I like that fireworks photo, too. That is SO creative. Of course, everything you do is creative. I'm number 16 this week because I fell asleep at the wrong time.

How lovely to spend the New Year break at the beach (and with a bag of art materials too). Your ATCs are beautiful - such gentle and serene faces.

How lovely it would be for us to spend a day at the breach - after all this snow (more yesterday)I am getting a little tired of it.
Gorgeous atc's and what a lovely place to be inspired to do your artwork - no 6 beach.
Happy New Year to you and yours. Long may your talent reign.

Hello!

I'm writing in behalf of a project hosted by the Ateneo School of Government, in Loyola Heights, QC.

I recently sent an email to your GMail address regarding the Tindera drawings you posted in September 2010.

I was wondering whether that address is still functional.

Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you and regards.
