Guess Who Turned 50?! Second Installment

My apologies to all for the wait. I’ve been having difficulty taking pics with my iphone. It was a storage issue… maybe you know it, too? Here’s how I finally fixed it https://www.simplemost.com/free-space-iphone-5-tricks/ thanks to a friend.

Without further ado, I present the second installment of the loot from the call that I shamelessly issued for my 50th birthday. Much of it came from folks with whom I have not had previous contact. I will be rectifying that.

From Bruno Andrews, a foil covered canvas collage.

It is difficult to explain how very much I appreciate these handmade tidings and well wishes… Variety is the spice of life and these folks really managed to spice up my life.

My sincere thanks to each and every one of you! Mwah!

Look for the third and final installment to come later this week. 😀

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!

Guess who turned 50?! First Installment

Oh, Happy Days!

For the month leading up to the Big Day, all of the incoming Birthday mail art was collected and saved. I began opening them when I needed a lift and boy, oh boy!

A BIG THANK YOU!!! to all who participated!

There were so many that I have decided to split it out into several posts, of which, this is the first installment.

Several of my Art Sisters sent lovely greetings… I was touched that Lynne even included me in the Feather Swap we held, in which I declined to participate. Isn’t it sweet?

Local friends also sent some great wishes…

My cousin, Belinda Brown, got in on the action with this very personal collage piece. She used pics of me interspersed with all things originating the year I was born… Can you guess the common thread?

Some of the things surprised me… Did not know that my beloved Pens were 50 this year, which makes it even more awesome that they won the Stanley Cup,again! (for the 5th time, jus’ sayin’) Knew that Lite-Brite and I were the same age, but Kerplunk was a surprise.

Can you believe there’s more still on the way? I’ll have more to share tomorrow….

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
