One Woman's Hands

Today I'm featuring just some of the lovely work by Leslie Sowden of One Woman's Hands.

I met Leslie (online) middle of last year, via one of the many group swaps at Karen Isaacson's Mail Me Some Art.  I decided fairly quickly that the group swap thing wasn't my cuppa, but Leslie and I hit it off.  We've been doing one-on-one swaps, often using one of the group swap ideas to do our own thing.

These are just a few of the great postcards Leslie has sent me.  And below, bless her heart, is a care package that arrived in the mail last month.

Check out Leslie's blog.  She is quite the mixed media maven.

It is always really nice when you make a connection like that. I guess I am still waiting on mine. Oh well, the mail art still goes out because it's fun regardless.
I like that you take some of the themes and put your own twists on it. That is awesome.
I will be checking out her blog next.

I love the way that connection was made. group swapping is certainly not everyone's cuppa, as you say. I participated in all kinds of organized swaps when I started out a few years ago, and over time a few special connections were made, and now it's much more satisfying to exchange on a personal level.

Ha! Thanks, Connie! So weird to see myself as the subject of someone else's blog post.
