Birthday Surprises

May and June are always an extremely busy time for my family - we have Mother's day, my Mom's birthday, my Dad's birthday, my birthday and Father's day! Whew!!

Some of the fun highlights the last month or two:

I currently have 2 collages featured in the juried art show All Creatures at Beauty Gallery in Newtown Square, PA. The show runs through July 18th,  if you have a chance to stop by :)

I received this beautiful mixed media bird sculpture from my husband  for my birthday last week by Mullanium. I am in love with all of their work - I want to collect them all!!

it says Meow on the chest plate! 

I also received a lovely surprise birthday card from my friends over at Nutmeg Designs featuring one of their beautiful stained glass creations - thank you! As they know, I love to get mail!

And of course our new kittens Franklin and Amelia are continuing to grow - they will be 5 months old in a few days!


Usually things wind down after the beginning of July (my wedding anniversary!) but this year I will only be getting busier!I can't say more about what's coming up yet, but I'm very excited!

Hope you are enjoying your spring and summer xo Abby

    1. Thank you Lana! I had just met her that day, so I'm not sure if you two met before - that would be a funny coincidence! I'm in Suburban Philadelphia if that helps :)
