I'm a member of a paper artists yahoo group and we had a Spring Basket Swap that I was able to participate in. I just received my basket in the mail today made by Mary U. I have it hanging in my kitchen already. I love the blue, aqua and green colored flowers. It's bright, cheerful and spring-like, very much needed with all the gray, cloudy days we're having. Now, I need to get moving on finishing the painting in my "little yellow kitchen/pantry" which are blues, aquas, and greens that are to be the accent colors. My new basket from Mary will be a wonderful piece of art for my kitchen -- thank you, Mary!! :-) Patty, the host of the swap, has a post at her blog (This My Blessed Life) with a picture of the baskets made for the "Spring Basket Swap" -- all the other ladies did a beautiful job on their baskets!
Mary's basket sent to me:
Here's my Spring Basket I sent to the swap - the basket is empty for now but I have a surprise:
