We Don't Rent Puppies. I have a small group of devoted followers, and I'm grateful for every comment they have left.
However, I've always had an artistic life, from the time I was first able to grasp a pencil and draw my father a set of railroad tracks (according to an oft-told family story). I have been browsing and following an assortment of artistic and creative blogs for several years, but was not ready to step out with my own artsy blog until I signed up for the Third Annual "Paper Cowgirl" Retreat that will be held this June in Waxahachie, Texas (for more information click on the PC button in the sidebar). I want my blog to be running strong by the time I get to this retreat, so this weekend I sat down and made a banner and organized some gadgets. This may not be the fanciest creative blog on the block, but I've got a rootin'-tootin' list of posts in mind to tempt readers.
If you make mixed media art, if you like prowling thrift stores, if you have a big ol' stash of ephemera, if you love books, if you like dogs or horses, if the sights off the beaten path make your heart beat faster, and if you have a sense of humor when it comes to your kids and spouse, then bookmark or follow my blog.
Yours, from the Piney Woods of Texas, Cathi (Calsidyrose)
