i love creating and working with my hands. and, i love giving my handmade mixed media collages as gifts to family and friends. this time of year is especially satisfying to me as i am busy, busy, busy creating special things to give to each of the people on my holiday list. this one will go to my brother and his wife. i hope they like it!

  6. so thoughtful and painstaking, this is how a gift should be, from the heart and even better if obe gives it a personal touch like this. such gifts are always appreciated and cherished. i still have all the handmade cards i gathered down the years on my birthday, the rest somehow didnt seem all that special. :)

  12. Julie, I love the way you captured all the texture on this piece. I don't think I've seen another picture of you work where the layering is so apparent. Your family is blessed to be the recipient of your talent.
