The Post Man Rings Again-Only this time- It's Ange!

Paper Swap &&<span class=
LaWendula is sponsoring an April Paper Swap titled Script, Scribbles and Handwriting. I was so lucky to be paired with Angela Negro from France. You can see her wonderful blog here and her website here. Angela is a calligrapher and as a result, I've been blessed with the most amazing handwriting works by her. In addition, she included so many unique vintage writing journal pages, papers with different languages, blue prints, special ephemera, and a picture of Grace Kelly to make me smile from ear to ear. Thank you so much Ange - what an over the top package of such beautiful papers and writings by you. And of course, thank you for those chocolate mints- the perfect completion to this wonderful swap that I'm so grateful for!
In her artwork- Ange wrote:
" Trust in yourself and everything will fall into place!'
"Stillness is our most intense mode of action-
It is in our moments of deep quiet that is born every idea - emotion."
Listen to your thoughts- hear what they are saying- they are your light when you are in darkness.

I have followed Angela's work for some time now and really love it. She is very talented. And you are very lucky to have gotten this stash of treasure from her. I am sure you will have fun using it in your art!

Oh my - such treasures - yay!! thanks so much for your lovely comment, means a great deal to me. I've been a writer all my life (thanks for noticing) and when living an altered life, well, you know!, it's a good outlet, especially when I can't get to the studio:)
you are an angel and I'm so glad to know you!!
