Liberate Your Art 2014


This is my 3rd year participating in Kat Sloma’s Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap. After all the postcards are sent out to the 200+ artists/recipients, it’s time for the Blog Hop!

This is the card I sent (seen above with other postcards I had made by


And, here are the cards I received in the order I received them, below. In previous years, I scanned the cards for my blog but this year I attempted to photograph them in complementary settings, which is what we were supposed to do. (Click photos to see the true beauty of the postcards.)

Deanie 1

And…from a sideswap I did with Deanie Houghtaling, who I “met” through this event last year and found out she lives about a mile from me and then who I met in person a few months ago. Deanie shares my love of cats and photography and we need to go out shooting together soon…or at least back out to dinner.

There was also a Facebook group for this event (and an Instagram one, too) where people posted cards as they got them so we could all see a lot of the cards.

So…you can check them out, too, by looking at the blogs of the other participants. And you should join in next year, it’s really fun! Thanks, everyone, and thanks, Kat, for all of your hard work.

Here’s the link to the participating blogs:

  1. You’re a veteran – this is my 1st LYA!
    Beautiful cards – both sent and received 🙂
    Lovely to meet you through the swap and Happy Easter from England x


  2. The card you sent is gorgeous! I don’t believe I’ve seen any of the cards you received before. The FB group was fun. I’m already looking forward to next year!


  3. I loved seeing my Nashville skyline pop-up here, it is the first one of mine I have seen and to make it even sweeter I also have the post card from Stacie and Adrienne.


  4. How COOL that you got to link up with someone in real life. That’s happened a couple times to me with online photo classes and it’s been such a blessing. Have fun! See you next time.


  5. I didn’t know there was an Instagram page for the swap! What is the name? I loved all of your photos of each terrific card, and loved reading this! Nice to meet you!


  6. As usual, the card you sent is awesome and you received some great art too! I L-O-V-E Deanie’s piece! Your presentation of the photos is really nice too! Thanks for sending the postcard to me too. It was such a nice surprise! Hugs!


  7. Oh! I love the postcard you liberated. It is just beautiful. You also received some really special cards in return…four of them I haven’t seen until now. Everyone is so creative don’t you think? I hope to see you next time!
