Celebrate Oz update............

I am so very pleased to announce that part of my hair brained schemes for Celebrate Oz - aLterEd oZ 2013 are coming to fruition.

The lovely couple at Lavender Dreams Farm are on board for the Celebrate Oz - aLtEReD oZ 2013 crazy wagon. This folks, currently have 9 donkeys in their rescue as well as other critters. They will be hosting an auction to raise funds for their farm and the wonderful work they do there on the day of Celebrate Oz which is March 15. The auction will be for an altered piece I have been working on for my contribution to Celebrate Oz. I have combined my love of donkey (oh what a surprise) and Wizard of Oz.....that combo is The Land of dOnkZ. Justina and Don at MBF and Linda at 7MSN gave me permission to take photos of their wonderful herds and use them as part of the altered art.

I have learned so many new techniques, new computer altering of photos and have glue and wonderment everywhere. I am finally back in the saddle when it comes to my roots as an artist. And I'm having a ball. Cut, fold, paste, with a side order of inside, outside, upside down.

On March 8, Ms. Marci from Lavender Dreams Farm will be a guest blogger here and will tell you about their farm, their work and perhaps even introduce you to some of the donkeys who are fortunate enough to live at LDF.

I hope that you are excited about all the fun we are going to have as I am. Well, back to the fun that awaits all covered with glue, glitter and joy.

Smooches and Squoozes, Oma Linda
