Anytime I receive mail from my artist friends, I always intend to blog about what I've received.  So today, I will begin by THANKING all of my wonderfully talented art blog and trading partners around the world for how much joy you give me - almost weekly!

What I decided to do today  was create this post and add  a hot link on my side bar to it.  That way, I can review it myself and also share the wonderful artwork  I receive in the mail all in one destination!

Yesterday's mail was sent by Cat Dodt-Ellis (CatWorx), one of several art friends I've come to know primarily thanks to Debby Harriettha's (The Gathering Nest)  on-going projects.  For almost a year now, there has been 17 artists involved in a skinny book project through her group - Oh My Gothic! 

Cat has been a Zettiology fan for years and so it's no surprise, she has mastered this 'genre' beautifully.  I have taken 3 snapshots of her skinny - hoping I could visually convey the amount of work that went into this page.  Each one of the circles is handcut and adhered.  The macro gives you a better idea as the full photos don't show the amount of detail.

Thanks so much Cat!
