Liberate Your Art Swap

I participated in the Liberate Your Art Swap this summer.
It was the brainchild of talented photographer, Kat Sloma, of
It was a chance to send our artwork out into the world and receive art back into our world.  Over 200 of us took photos of our artwork and created postcards and mailed them to Kat. She then swapped them out and EACH person got FIVE beautiful postcards, once a week, over the summer. Oh, yes. It was fun!! Who doesn't still love snail mail?
I know one of my postcards went all the way to the Netherlands. How cool is that? 
Here are the gorgeous cards that graced my mailbox:

A photo of a sunset is from 
Stunning, yes?

This card made me want to lie on the grass and look at the sky, and  was simply signed 
love, Kirsten:

I have to tell you, I was a little star struck, as Anna is one of the inspirer's over at 

This beauty is from Janet:

This one makes me sigh every time I look at it.

Catherine took it in San Galgano, Italy.

Because we reached over 200 participants, Kat sent one to EVERY participant!
It's also from Italy.
