Several months ago...actually it's been a year now...a book / paper / digital artist, Bronia Sawyer, that I've never met (but hope to one day)
emailed to ask if I'd like to swap a bit of art. I had never been asked before and really didn't know how to respond but my first reaction was...YIKES!
The last time I mailed an envelope from Colombia it cost a ridiculous amount and took 25 days to get to the recipient.
So, I - as kindly as I knew how - sent an email telling her no. (Can you believe that)?!?
I regretted declining IMMEDIATELY and wrote back - after I got the nerve up a few days/weeks (who knows at this point) later - to let her know I'd changed my mind. :)
I know... fickle. I figured out (duh) that I could send mail from the States next time we went. (We go out with empty suitcases so...hey)! But I didn't hear back for awhile and let it slide.
Anywho...I finally got her address and sent her a simple bookmark...just because. Really not expecting anything in return.
She then asked for my address and sent me the exquisite paper birds you see in these pictures. The one with the flowers that's attached to string is hanging near where my Claire Bear sleeps.
I'm in TOTAL awe of the art Bronia creates...and she changes up things on a regular basis...so if you go look...I know you'll find something you love. Much of her work simply BLOWS MY mind.
When in FL last month, I made a little door knob quilt for her which I blogged about here if you want to take a look/see.
Bronia is prolific in producing beautiful works of art and has an extremely awesome website that I hope you'll visit.
Tell her annie! says, "Hi"!
