Let The Party Begin

Today is the day! Clap...clap...for the Beautiful Blogging Party, so excited.
Hmmm!!! Why I love blogging?.. Oh, let me count the ways. I am really enjoying all the beautiful people I meet through my love of mixed media art and all things vingtage.

When I have the time to blog-hop, it just amazes me to discover all the talented, artistic people I come in contact with.

What is it about blogging that can make us pour our heart and soul out in words? Are we comfortable with the fact that we will probably never meet many of our blogger friends, so it is safe to give them a little glimmer into our private lives, and they will listen and be there for us? Whatever the reason, my blog brings much happiness into my world and I am thrilled to be a part of this craze!

A big, warm thanks to Joy who has put our Beautiful Blogger Party into action and given us a chance to meet and enjoy the many wonders of our blogging community. Be sure to check her incredible blog out here: and read more about Cupids Charm in the Summer 2009 Artful Blogger.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Blog~Hopping!

The Wrought Iron Gate said...

Hello Debby, I have enjoyed my first visit to your lovely blog....and isn't that what draws us to blogging in the first place?
The chance to meet wonderful, like-minded people. I love your idea of altering Rolo-dex cards, and displaying a whole circle of little art peices. I'm going to be on the look out for cards. Until my next visit.

Best Wishes,

Ingrid Mida said...

Hi Debby,
You are not far away from Toronto at all. In fact, aren't there some lovely antique shoppes out your way? I'd love to get my hands on some vintage buttons and keys like you had in your post.
Blogging is beautiful!

KBeau said...

Hello Debby.

Nice to meet you too!

Oh you like mixed media too. I've been seeing works about mixed media and they're amazing (I've yet to try it out). My fave is the "Wishes" and "Key to My Mind".

And your collection of vintage buttons and keys are beautiful. Me, I wonder what doors those keys open. A mystery hhhmmmmmmmmmmm :-)

Oh, do enjoy your pretty teacups. While sharing tea, you'll also get to remember the wonderful memories of your childhood.


Ms. Lucy said...

Your blog is lovely and you are so talented. I'm off to puruse the rest of your blog.

Happy Blogging Party,

Lori said...

Beautiful, inspiring blog! I found you through Joy's Blogging Party. I am so glad I stopped by. I am a scrapper and just getting into mixed media art. Your art is beautiful and so inspiring. I am now a follower! So glad I found you.

Susie Jefferson said...

Love your header, love your background, totally agree re 4 x 4 size. I have a confession: I hate ATCs - too SMALL! I prefer tags as you can never have too many bookmarks. (I'm sorry I'm late ... I had to do my Pink Saturday post simultaneously, and after all that close work on the buttons I worked myself into a migraine!) So hence I am finally here. Hopefully better late than never, and welcome all the same?

lisaschaos said...

I'm with you on the fun and friendships found in bloggy land. :)

Joy at Cupids Charm said...

Hello Debby! Loved your post! I wanted to stop by and thank you for participating in the Beautiful Blogging Party!! I hope you enjoyed the event and also enjoyed meetings lots of new bloggers. Have a beautiful week ~ Joy
