My 15 Minutes of Fame!!!

Hello fellow bloggers! I am so honored to report that some of my recent art is being featured on Laura Carson's blog, Artfully Musing. I have been a huge fan of Laura and her art for some time and to have something of mine selected by her is really thrilling! So stop by her blog - but plan to spend some time there. You will see some really amazing creations by Laura and you won't want to rush!

In other news, even though my blog has been laying dormant for quite a while, I have actually been busy making art! I won't try to share it all in one post - you're welcome. Last week I mailed away my Birds in Hats coaster swap sponsored by AlphaStamps.

It was so much fun "shopping" for just the right hat for each of these feathered friends.

The hat below is festooned with tiny flowers which are actually repurposed nail art decals. Gotta love the dollar store!

And this one I'm keeping for myself:

If you've never visited the AlphaStamps online store, you're in for a real treat. And there is a corresponding Yahoo group with some wonderful and talented members. Do check them out!

Thanks to those of you who have not given up on me. I hope you'll begin visiting me here on my blog again!



  1. Hi Beverly,
    Congratulations! I saw your fun beach postcards over on Laura's blog, which is how I ended up here! These bird coasters are great! The bonnets are too cute! I've enjoyed following this swap. Maybe one of these days I'll be able to join in!

  2. Fab coasters! I am in the swap as well and can't wait until we receive some in return! So fun!

  3. These are great Beverly! Lovely and fun at the same time. Laura

  4. Hi Beverly, I saw your work on Laura's Blog and commented on how much I enjoyed your beach themes and became a follower of your Blog that night. I love your Coasters and the detailing of the hat with the nail art was ingenious.
    Have a great day!

  5. Love the one with the buttons on it!

  6. These are beautiful. I hope I get one in the swap--I'm participating, too.
