Hi there
I just found you through the GYBP which I'm joining for the first time this year. I too am an avid traveller and love "collecting countries"!! I look forward to exploring your blog more as you're in an area I absolutely love. I lived in Vietnam for many years and I adooore what you've done with the Vietnamese fishing boat picture. So beautiful. Very inspiring.

Hi Cathy--I'm visiting via the GYBP; this is my first time participating. We were expats for two years living in England and we loved it! I love your artwork and jewelry, and what fun you're having buying up all kinds of Asian goodies. I did not see how to sign up for your give away, but I prefer paper and my favorite colors are pink and purple :) So nice to meet you--hope you'll stop by for a visit. Blessings, Diana

What fun! I love reading about travel and places far away. Singapore sounds fascinating!! Thanks for the giveaway option -- I prefer fabric arts, and as for colors? Anything rich and deep ... blue, deep reds, whatever :) Have a lovely day!

Your life sounds very interesting. I love fabric and blues and purples.

I found your blog via the Grow Your Blog party, and I am fascinated by your experiences. I look forward to seeing more of your travels and experiences in lands that are so exotic to me.

I enjoy fabric crafts (a cross stitcher myself http://ladynero815.blogger.com ) and love blues and greens.

Hey Girlfriend, just popped by for a quick Hello and to wish you fun and success in this year's GYB party. I can't believe it's already been one year since we met at last year's party! You are still making me crazy with those stamps and that batik chop!!!! I'm going to have to do an ebay search... I just have to have some of my own!!! LOL! Well, you know I create with paper, fabric, wool and lots of other things... I'm a lost soul when it comes to crafty supplies! :D
Hugs and enjoy the party my sweet blogging sister!

Welcome to my blog! I love creating mixed media cards, art, and jewelry. This blog is a place for me to share my creations, my collections, and what inspires me (travel, art, photography). The hubby and I travel often and I love collecting and sharing unique finds from the countries we visit. We are currently living in Montreal, Quebec.
