CHRISTMAS E-CARDS SPARKLE AND CHIME




E-Card: Holiday Sparkle

Christmas holidays... our heads spin.... time races....we race around.... the sounds and visuals have changed around us.... the air is filled with the sound of ringing bells n' chimes. We see twinkling lights and racing lights, Santa and angels, striped candy, chocolate and peppermint sticks. Everything is red and green and then there is more red and more green and ... yes, it is the Christmas holidays. Gifts... oh the choices are endless. Lucky we are to have so many choices.

Talk about choices... how about the choice of greeting cards! Festive or reflective, spirited and funny, religious and spiritual, paper cards, e-cards, beautiful, cute, poetic, silly, minimal or ornate, support a cause, create awareness, photographic, hand drawn, computer generated, charming or crass, endless but ....how wonderful we have so many great choices to express our thoughts and emotions.

E-MotionCards has choices..... flash cards with endless music, video cards artistic and unique, photographic postcards, vintage postcards. You are given the opportunity to creatively express yourself with your choice of card to send, your words, thoughts and good wishes. It's a feel good thing to share wishes for happiness and love to those you care about especially during this time of year.

So many choices.... lucky us.

Happy Holidays

THANKSGIVING GUESTS - THE GOURDS!


The Gourds have arrived.... to Thanksgiving dinner that is. I've so enjoyed creating these quirky characters and now they have found their way into an E-MotionCard!

We are wishing you a wonderful day of sharing gratitude with family and friends.

Charming Food Characters

Gourd characters.... who would have known a pile of gourds would take me on this adventure!

All started out when I went to the farmer's market on Saturday and found a wonderful selection of colorful gourds begging to be discovered. I questioned myself as to what I would do with them and how I could use them for E-MotionCards. Answers didn't come, however, I've learned to trust my creative process...... I just get out of the way and let it all unfold. I found myself creating characters and actuallty laughing at myself for doing so. Quite honestly, I still don't know exactly how these characters will find themselves in e-cards but I trust ideas will come. In the meantime I am totally enjoying this escape into the world of "Gourdy" and "Ms. Go-Go-Gourdy"?

I'll keep you posted on this frivolous adventure in the land of gourds! In the meantime check out the new cards on E-MotionCards.

LIFE IN THE DAY OF A POODLE






One day I pulled the lounge chair out to take a short siesta; a rest in the warmth of the sun. There I laid for about ten minutes until the phone rang. After answering the phone I went out to lay in the sun a few more minute, alas, my chair was occupied. Yes, Potter had
decided to try it out obviously assuming what's good for me is good for him.

Potter my muse.... my constant inspiration.... but wait...... on this sunny summer afternoon I was his inspiration. Now you and I know that he would have been worlds warmer than I as he laid there with his dark thick coat on but he had to try it for himself..... sounds familiar doesn't it.

Wishing one and all to enjoy these remaining sultry summer days.

SUMMER WINDOW

Looking at my past creations for new inspiration.... here is a summer window display I created. I love this zen approach...... sometimes it is the most successful approach as each element certainly takes on a high degree of importance! Had fun with this one.

STOP MOTION Father's Day Fun



Visualizing the stop motion is such a challenge, honestly, I find if I don't visualize the project too much and I just start out..... is rather magical how the piece comes to life.... well, at least most of the time I am pleasantly surprised but then there are always times I toss it all out and start anew. Learned long time ago it is just as important to know when to let go of an idea and move on as it is to think of ideas to begin with. How many times have there been aspects of a creative project I felt way too precious to let go of so continued working on the entire piece only to realize I had to let go of the that area for the success of the piece.

Behind the scenes for this new piece: I pulled out every little prop I had that could relate to Father's Day.... and I have a lot of small props as my niche at one time photographically was small sets. For two days I experimented with different ideas and then I realized I had to scrap the ideas using the props and just use Play-doh in a creative way.... so I started out and and this piece came about.

KICK THOSE HEELS HIGH!




Finished my kick'n good card! Geez, I had so much fun I want to work on a similar new idea immediately, if not sooner.

It has been heartwarming to share in so much laughter in the process of making this card. Everyone was willing and playful... not something we enjoy everyday but need to do more often.

Hope you all have as much fun sending this card as we had making it - is filled with great energy!

TOO MUCH FUN!

Click here to see Hoop La La

The new Father's Day card I happen to be working on is so much fun I wish I could just keep adding to it for quite some time. Of course, it would be too long for an e-card but I just love how in the process of making this card there is so much laughter around me.

When was the last time you literally kicked your heels up? Yes, that is what I am asking friends, neighbors and strangers walking down the street to do as I take a video of them. We all laugh and it is an excuse to be very playful.

Hopefully in a few days I will have the Kick'n your Heels card uploaded. Get ready to laugh!

In the meantime above is one of our favorites! HOOP LA LA

WE ALL HAVE THEM!


Click here to view e-card.
How many times do we realize the person we are looking at or speaking with also has insecurities just as we do?

Well...... ok..... maybe theirs are different than ours or maybe they have less or more than we have but we all have them don't we. By sharing a part of oneself with others we not only feel better about ourself but the other person feels better too and the world is a friendlier place. I like the idea of the world being a friendlier place but sometimes stepping up to the plate is... oh so difficult, if you know what I mean. Whew!

NOT JUST E-CARDS

Click here to see the musical motion ecard..... and it is free to send!

A new day with the idea of writing whatever thoughts come floating by... not just about e-cards or creativity but also sharing those fleeting thoughts, obscure realizations, awareness... or perhaps frivolous dialogue.

Today I've thinking about - a lifetime of otherness. Strange way of expressing a thought I must say. Was thinking of all of the experiences I bring with me today. Not being young, not being middle-aged but beyond, I've enjoyed and lamented many experiences in my lifetime - the experience of joys and sorrows inherent with life and those unique to me - my otherness.

Ahhh yes..... I am thankful for the diversity of experiences I've had and those experiences make great memories. I can entertain people and create laughter in the storytelling of my experiences.... but it is the dreams and aspirations that are of importance. Dreams come from our spirit to create. Dreams inspire. Dreams keep the youthful spirit within us alive.
Until another day........

THE GIFTS OF A WINTER WONDERLAND



There are not words to convey the beauty of this moment in time.... yesterday I thought I was a bit weary of the snow storms and the ice we have had to deal with..... today my spirit soared with peaceful thoughts and awe as I was constantly drawn into this magical scene around me.... taking only one step out of the house I was instantly taken to another place - one of quiet beauty and transformation....... a place I will keep forever in my memories..... a place in which the memory is a gift.
