It's mostly online, a great place to meet other artists and view their work, chat, discuss, share your own art, etc. If you enjoy creating or just seeing collage art, altered art, and other mixed media, check it out at

unique cards from mia joli

Check out these unique, truly extraordinary cards created by miajoli at
The color and details on these look amazing, and her designs are truly original.
There is still time to buy her gorgeous vintage-inspired Halloween cards and tags (she even has a sale today!)...

and we hope to see more angelic Christmas cards soon! Wouldn't you love receiving one of these?

And her wonderful bird cards are perfect anytime! I can't decide which style I like best, the ones inspired by antique book illustrations or the little guys with button eyes below.
See these and more available at!

There were about twenty of these little guys at the feeder outside my window this afternoon ~ along with several of their little friends the titmice (or is it titmouses?)

They're flocking up to start their journey south again, as the seasons turn.

If chickadees visit your yard, too, then you're familiar with the sound of their call ~ as in the title of this post!

Anyway, thought I would share a picture.
This photo is courtesy of the US gov, and you're welcome to use it however you like.

I wish I had a picture of a squawky bluejay for you, too ~ the quintessential sound of autumn around here!

Take a Moonlight Journey

We recently discovered a beautiful website belonging to a customer. Lynne of Moonlight Journey creates all kinds of wonderful altered art ~ ACEOs, paper bag books, matchbook albums, very cool tags and tag books. I couldn't resist sharing some of her creations. Some are in the spirit of upcoming All Hallow's Eve, others are just pretty and fun!

Visit Lynne's site MOONLIGHTJOURNEY.COM to see lots more of her altered art, and to find links to her ebay store and etsy shop where you can purchase her work.
