About Me

I am a very artsy and creative person. I have lots of things that I like to make. I like working in lots of different mediums. If you would like to see my art you can do so on Instagram under @ladycyr and if you want to read any of my written work much of it is posted on allpoetry.com I write under Star of Atlantis. You can read up to 10 pages worth of my posts there with out a free membership or you can read it all if you sign up there for free. I want to meet people who I can become artsy pen pals with sharing creations with. I hope to build life long artsy relationships with people who love to create as much as I do. I live in Taylorsville Utah in the United States. If you would like to do a swap with me feel free to contact me and we can work something out :)

What's new

Updated on Wednesday, 8/21/19

Today is my service dog's birthday. His name is ZuLu and if you want to follow his story and see his pics you can follow him in Instagram @zuleezu His pic has blue ears so its easy to find his. He's quite funny.

I am getting ready for sketchtember and inktober, although I have not found the sketchtember prompt list for this year yet. I feel like its behind in getting that out to us so if anyone has seen it can you send me the link please. I am in the mailing list to get the inktober list a soon as its released, so will gladly send update to anyone planning on partaking in it, as soon as I have it of course. Just ask if you want it.

I havent got an update on big fatty as it has not been worked in for a while. Its mixed media which I love but is more time consuming than I've had time for lately. I will of course keep you posted.

My neice will be doing her 1st inktober this year you can see what she will be up to on Instsgram @gracyshoelacy Show her young artistic self some love and encouragement.

Sketchtember starts my busy with personal art season. 1 sketchtember 2 inktober then 3 start making all my gifts for Xmas. This has to star 11/1 or will not be done in time as every one of these projects is usually laber intensive. I have some things I was hoping to complete for all my family's August birthdays but that didnt happen so they are now tge xmas ideas. Still not sure i can pull them off... But tgen again I almost me er am and usually they turn out far better than I planned.

I know from now to the end of the year my swap partisipation will be minimal as per my need to complete all the personal art I've set aside for myself, but not to worry I'm not going anywhere and will add more to my open swaps from time to time. And my swap series are still around I will still be doing those from time to time too. I just don't want to get overwelmed and want to always commit to swapping really good art on here.

I never got any feedback on weather or not to do any diamond painting swaps. So I guess that no one here has really gotten hooked on them like I have yet. Let me know if this chandes and I might run a couple. I post pics of all my completed diamond paintings along with pics of all my art on my instagram @ladycyr just incase anyone wants to check it out.

I have several regular series here. They are:

Hand made postcard tarot

Hand made postcard visual quotes

Hand made post card artist inspired

Whatever happened to hand made postcards?

I have been asked to do another mini big fatty swap and I will but it is a labor intensive swap and therefore will need to put this on hold until I have more time to commit to this one.

As always I'm thinking up some new fun swaps that I hope to see you all take part in, who knows I may do some that become series too. Much huggles... Brightest blessings be upon you all and happy creating

I’ve joined the second handmade postcard swap and I posted the cards I made for the first one on flicker and tagged it with swap it. I’ve been into ATCs for awhile and am liking the increase in size.
