I felt inspired this week to include the moon in my postcards! As it turns out, there happens to be a Lunar Eclipse today, known as the Blood Mood because of the beautiful red it will be! If you've never seen a lunar eclipse, you must check it out. I've see a few and they are so amazing - but again, you need to be patient. It's a long process.
As for my postcards, here are a few of my favourites. I'm nearing #300 with these few dozen new ones. Isn't that amazing!? They are all signed and numbered on the backs. I listed a small handful of them in Etsy in my shop. The rest are destined for the SK Craft Council Boutique in Saskatoon and the Mackenzie Gallery Shop in Regina. Some will also be included in the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra's fundraiser! I'll be sending them all off this week. There aren't eclipsed moons in these, but I do love the delicate while slivers in the sky. : )
I am digging purple lately, can't you tell!? ; )
Snow. I know. It's not here yet. But I think winter nights are beautiful. That particular scene is similar to the one chosen by the Broadway area MLA for her greeting cards last year.
They really make me happy. I think you might expect more purple in my upcoming commissions. ; )
I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday @ TN&TN. You can get to my Etsy shop via the right sidebar of my blog. The Etsy pics are linked.
Have a beautiful day - and don't forget to moongaze. xo
