Snail Mail Art Card – ATC Swap!

And so, if you know me, you know that i LOVE Artist Trading Cards.  I first discovered them when i embarked on the world of making after needing a break from my world as a theatre artist/storyteller, so i was particularly happy to find the world of art cards.  

They were and continue to be such a small step towards big creativity.  When stuck, i find that working out a few cards gets the juices going and makes me inspired to create more art of any shape or size.  

And so, i am proud to announce the GirlCanCreate Snail Mail ATC Swap!  I have attached all of the details below and extended the deadline to July 20th!  I look forward to having you along and sharing your cards!  


Here are the details!
What?  An open themed ATC Swap for the Summer of 2011.   You send in 11 cards, one for the moderator, and 10 for trade along with your address and you will receive 10 cards back. 
There is no theme for the swap, and the only rule is that the cards be 2.5” by 3.5” and have your name and date written on the back.
When?  The deadline is July 20, 2011 so please have all of your cards to me by then.  If you might be late, please email me at to let me know the status of your cards. 
All cards will be mailed out on July 25, 2011 so depending upon where you are expect them the first week of August. 
How?  You create 11 cards, put them in an envelope, mail them to me and by mid August a package will come your way with 10 cards from other artists!
Once you have your cards finished, please mail them to
88 Hallam St
Toronto, ON

Lots o Art!

Spent some time in the studio doing some needlefelting.  It was so much fun!

Sunday we had a small but fun group of people show up for the May Make and Trade at the workroom. If you want to be kept abreast of our happenings, please sign up here! Here the lovely Jinny of Ruby and Apple works on some fabric cards!
A photo of me during a rehearsal for the Deep Wireless Festival.  It’s one of my favourite fests in the city and i felt so lucky to be a part of the Radio Theatre Ensemble.  This time around it featured Francois Girourd, Brandon Labelle, and Jessica Thomson and myself.  

Two weeks ago, i worked on the Theatre Direct Project for Round Trip Home.  What fun! Here is the fruit of our labour! Small toy theatres that the kids created, designed and performed!
Of course we started planting our garden.  It’s really green this year, but we plan to add more flowers this weekend.  Can’t wait!

I have been sketching a lot lately and i started working on this series of ladies. Here is my favourite!

I grew up eating a lot of donuts and sweets so i understand where this comes from.

Creating Artist Cards has been really freeing for me and i do love it so!
