New creations, giveaway and videos

Here are 3 art paper dolls I made for a swap with the Altered_stArt Yahoo group. I'm ok with the way they turned out. I enjoyed working on them. If you're a member of that group and haven't already, be sure to check the dolls made by other swap participants posted to the group's photos; amazing and beautiful.

I love Google. First they provide, in my opinion, the best free email service; then IGoogle, then Google Alerts and now I recently discovered Google Reader Shared Items. Its a nifty little tool that allows me to share chosen posts of those amazing blogs I subscribe to via Google. So if you look on the top right, I have some posts that I'm sharing with you all that I found especially good. Hope you find them as useful and inspiring as I have.

Recently, I've learned so much about making many different backgrounds at the altered book 101 web class. So, I found these videos extremely helpful and so easy and thought I'd share with you all.

Cassandra of My Artful Adventures is offering an amazing giveaway called "You're the Queen", which goes with this majestic award which I am to pass on to at least 2 friends.
To award recipients: you should take time to do at least one thing for yourself this week. Treat yourself like a queen! Take a longer coffee break, go to a movie, go shopping, take a nice long bubble bath. Then encourage at least 2 friends by passing on the award and telling them something nice. Post a comment on your blog with the 2 or more friends you selected explaining what the award is and a link to my giveaway. Be sure to let them know you are giving them an award.
Here are 2 blog friends that right away come to mind who I visit regularly, although as a blog lover I follow many, many amazing bloggers. Too many to list.

Dawn Edmondson of The Feathered Nest
Wow, what an inspiration this lady is. I am in love with every piece she creates and her generosity in providing so much teaching, and inspiration is so much appreciated by me. And her devotion in keeping up with her blog regularly is truly enviable.

Karen of Graphics Fairy
I appreciate Karen so much. You see, I'm a free image addict and her constant supply of these images keeps me so happy! Not only does she give away images every day, but they're all so beautiful and unique.
Thanks, ladies, and good luck on the giveaway. I hope one of you win Cassandra's goodies.

I wish you all a delightful, restful and reflective Memorial Day Weekend,
