Serendipity, when it happens to me, reminds me of the character Anne Shirley from the Anne of Green Gables series, who was always looking for kindred spirits. I also look for kindred spirits and I found one in my new friend Wendy (BLISSANGELS.BLOGSPOT.COM), who's been patient and kind enough to share her many talents of art, crafting, writing and blogging. I was excited when Wendy showed me ATC's (Artist Trading Cards). They are the most amazing things - tiny works of art, shared among kindred spirits. My excitement for the ATC swap is even keeping me up at night, like a kid waiting for a letter from a pen pal. I'm wondering if I can produce an expression of art that will fit on such a tiny canvas and yet make a statement of some kind. Wendy's been such a great help, showing me the wonderful ATC's she's collected. And she doesn't just stash them in a box stored under the bed. She displays them in many clever ways. It was impressive to see her collection. So, three cheers to serendipity/kindred spirits & ATC's.
