So you’ve seen lots of painted cards by now (what? you missed them? check out the gallery here), but maybe you’re wondering… how does the WRITING side look? Yup, I usually forget all about that side, but perhaps it’s important to you, since that’s the side you’re writing your sweet, sarcastic or sassy thoughts on…
so write whatever message you like. Today I’ve been thinking about my friend, Beth, way out in Colorado.
Just write your note with a pencil or ballpoint pen, pop it in the envelope provided and hand deliver. If you decide to mail your card, please remember to put it in a bubble envelope or padded envelope, available at the post office, & mail as a package. These cards are fragile, real wood & one of a kind.
Have fun & happy connecting with all those people you’ve been thinking about-

A few years ago I found some wood cards from Cardtorial at the Renegade Art Fair in Chicago. I love this card so much, I have yet to send it. The wood is a great weight and I just can’t get enough of wood.
How cool is a wood card?
I’ve been checking out wood samples everywhere, trying different mediums with the wood, sizes, shapes and Hurray! The best art medium/wooden card combo is also my favorite thing thing to do- paint.
Here’s my favorite so far:
hand-painted sugar skull on cherry wood 4×6
This one’s off in the mail, with a letter written in ballpoint on the back and a single stamp. I’ll post more when they’re done.
What do you think?

Girls love pink, right? Really, some of us only like pink if it’s highlighting a sugar skull & some attitude.
Bring it on.

Ooooo- look at that pretty little green stool… this color makes me feel like spring is sneaking up on us, don’t you think? Thanks to ShopMichL for including Vintage-Twisted in this lovely Etsy Treasury.
The faint scent of smoky sage is what I sense in this color palette. Did you know sage in the Old West was known as ‘Cowboy Cologne?’

It seems my obsession with sugar skulls has no limits.
Right now I’m working on two- this pink canvas with a steel gray sugar skull that has undertones of this really pretty green:
and this dark gray table. I haven’t started working on his face yet- do you think he’ll be sweet or sinister? Hmmm.
I’m not through with those sugar skulls, either. What about a bright, multi-colored sugar skull on the charcoal gray? and black? or some crazy muted colors on white, deconstructing, layering, repeating in patterns? and I’m dreaming of another trip to the National Museum of Mexican Art, right down there in Pilsen.
And yet, still thinking & preparing for what’s coming next. Do you have pictures of your favorite tattoos to send me?

Here’s that chocolate & pink table, in a beautiful new Etsy treasury.
Thanks, Aunt Adelaide’s Attic– for adding it to the treasury.
Thanks to Whale Shark Websites for creating the new treasury code generator that so easily allows me to add treasuries to this blog…
