Belated Thanks

Many moons ago, Jo of Fiddlesnips fame, exclaimed over my rusted suspender clips, but lamented not having the means to purchase a set from my shop. Well, I am not adverse to bartering and suggested a swap. She readily agreed and sent me some of her creative jewels. I never did post what I received, because of lack of time or being distracted with only a million other things going on (I sold A LOT of rusted suspender clips!) But I have always wanted to acknowledge her beautiful art. So here I am now, better late than never...
This postcard sized collage is even more wonderful to hold in person! Lots of layers and textures-- so wonderful to have a piece of something I have only been able to admire on her blog. I love everything she creates!

Give me an "N", give me an "A", give me a "T"...
Give me an inch and I will ask for eight! ha!
Jo also sent me a set of precious inchies (one of her specialties!), one for each letter of my name.
How cool is that?!
Now that I've found these again, I plan to mount them on cardboard and make a wire (or ribbon?) hanger. Too fabulous to have put away!
Thank you, Jo, for a fun swap.
I'm thinking I'd like to do another with you this year!
Only this time I'll make something too.
I got off easy just sending you found objects. :)
