The Royal Mail from London

It was one of the finest days when I received the Royal Mail from one of my beloved blogger friends, Soul. There were atcs* made by her, a note penned by her & atcs for me to work with. I was pretty excited & ecstatic... I was smiling the whole day (I am, most of the time, smiling & my husband enquired what has made me smile MORE).
To know more about Soul you should pay a visit to her blog(for which you can click on the link above) of the finest in spirit,color, vigor & vitality. I always feel inspired by Soul's works & words.
Thank you Soul for the atcs... I so very much treasure your friendship:) ,your atcs & your hand-written note.

I will surely be displaying mine as soon as my current assignments finish.
*atc-artist's trading cards.

Am Happy for you and Yay! For Soul.

Blogging does help in meeting a lot of fun, interesting and like minded people. I have made many friends to cherish too (With whom i spend more time than flesh 'n' blood friends these days :-) )

Soul seems like a very nice person, her blog is quite live and glittery too. :D

Good luck with your atcs. :P

do you know deepa, blogging has been one of the most amazing experiences for me. not only has it given me the confidence to explore what little talent i might have, but also it has brought me into contact with a number of totally wonderful people, who inspire me everyday, you being one of them.
i'm so glad you made such a nice blog friend. her blog is fascinating.
please share all the stuff she sent you and all the stuff you come up with. waiting eagerly for that.

BTW, what exactly is an artist's trading card?

Deepa Gopal said...

Cori, you are sure to find lot of friends & fun out here. Quite an experience! Thanks for your lovely words & hope to see more of you:)

Deepa Gopal said...

True Mahesh, I am very lucky to have a really great group of friends. All your encouragement has worked wonders on me!
Ofcourse, Soul needs a Huge Round of Applause!!! She's One Inspiring Lady all should have as a friend:)

Deepa Gopal said...

Lynn, we are really VERY LUCKY!!!
And Soul is of course the Queen of ATC's:) Surely I'll line up mine in the near future which would ofcourse be after 8th of May. I've an assignment to finish by then.

Artist, Thanks loads!!! Hope to see your atcs too:)

Deepa Gopal said...

Calli, Thanks & hope to see you around too:)

L'tl girl,I totally agree with you! This is a platform where we can shed our inhibitions & put forth all our creativity (atleast no one will stare at us if we go wrong:))The posted ones are the ones that Soul sent me. I'll show you whatever I receive in future too.

BTW I've promised to send her atcs after I finish making mine.

ATC's are cards that artists create their artwork on which of course will be small..the size of business cards...& then they are traded with other artists.

By the way, I really love the header yours. A pair of cool green trees that resembles your creative left & right brian in contact....just like you said "listening to the inner voice, who is my muse,.......and fulfil my creative desires."

and love your b;og's wall paper! Wow! Feeling spring and flower power:)

And the side bar with greens.
