This cute little creature has been starring in many different advertisements, even for a tooth whitening product. Since he's sporting two of my favorite colors: blue and green, I just had to make a collage. The glass flower beads have smaller glass bead centers. I do love bright colors!

My online mailART exchange group held a FISH SWAP. I received a brightly colored postcard from someone in France, and also a seahorse postcard with lovely poetry. These were my contributions:

I planted this lily a year ago, and it is doing well. The other day I noticed a bright green kadydid on the open blossom. It moved slowly and I took a lot of pictures. Consider the lilies, they do not labor, they only bloom in simplicity and beauty where they are planted, and their Creator takes care of their needs.
Bracketed by the Viscerian Sea, Tyvekistan is a land mass formed by numerous volcanic craters with a climate similar to Hawaii. From outer space its topography resembles the moon's surface. There is a diversity of animal life with few predators. Coastal grasslands support large herds of zebrassa and antelopians. In the hilly country, smaller mammals include rabbitis, lemurians, monkesha and mongooselin. Corn, rice, papayas, pineapples, sugar cane, macadamia nuts, and a primary export, coffee, grow well in its warm climate.
Along the seashore, men and women fish from hand-hewn boats. Natives in the interior are very artistically expressive in visual arts, music and dance. Several worldwide not-for-profit organizations help to market hand-crafted wares.
According to verbal history, the tribal inhabitants have always been a peace-loving people. Infrequent visitors have witnessed a communication network of drums from hilltop to hilltop by which long-distance messages are sent and received.
The tourism trade has virtually ignored Tyvekistan which for the locals is probably a good thing, allowing them to preserve their family values and simple way of life, and to maintain a stress-free environment.
This stylish model appeared in my mailbox wearing a yellow dress. I thought I could do better, so I cut out a black and white dress from a catalog, custom fit it, gave her a hat to coordinate, and changed her earrings and necklace.. Oh, and I added an orange and purple stole. Now, she has pizzazz!
