About Me

I am a very artsy and creative person. I have lots of things that I like to make. I like working in lots of different mediums. If you would like to see my art you can do so on Instagram under @ladycyr and if you want to read any of my written work much of it is posted on allpoetry.com I write under Star of Atlantis. You can read up to 10 pages worth of my posts there with out a free membership or you can read it all if you sign up there for free. I want to meet people who I can become artsy pen pals with sharing creations with. I hope to build life long artsy relationships with people who love to create as much as I do. I live in Taylorsville Utah in the United States. If you would like to do a swap with me feel free to contact me and we can work something out :)

What's new

Updated on Wednesday 1/1/20

Happy new year all my swap artist friends. I hope the upcoming year and new decade is the best ever for you all. I finished last year's sketchbooks yesterday and I'm starting the new ones today. I did good in completing 2 last year. I have I think like 6 or 7 of them this year but think I will mostly be working in 3 of these. My big on my little one and my square one. I have no time lines for the others. I dont know if I will be able to complete 3 sketchbooks this year along with all the other projects I take on in a year but I shall try. Each of my books has 60 pages so if I complete all 3 that's about 180 pages. I'd like to do at least 1 piece a day. So it should be ok to fill these 3 books. As always I'll be posting my art on my Instagram page.

I have a beautiful book I'm doing filled with all watercolor paintings. It is full of mythical and magickal things. It's going to take a long time to finish but will be a beautiful book to pass on someday. Going into this new year and new decade I am single. So if you are an artsy gent .... nope not playing the dating game here.

I am in love with my QoR watercolors and will be doing more watercolor hosts. I hope that you will all join.

I havent got an update on big fatty as it has not been worked in for a while. Its mixed media which I love but is more time consuming than I've had time for lately. I will of course keep you posted.

I never got any feedback on weather or not to do any diamond painting swaps. So I guess that no one here has really gotten hooked on them like I have yet. Let me know if this chandes and I might run a couple. I post pics of all my completed diamond paintings along with pics of all my art on my instagram @ladycyr just incase anyone wants to check it out.

I have several regular series here. They are:

Hand made postcard tarot

Hand made postcard visual quotes

Hand made post card artist inspired

Whatever happened to hand made postcards?

I have been asked to do another mini big fatty swap and I will but it is a labor intensive swap and therefore will need to put this on hold until I have more time to commit to this one.

As always I'm thinking up some new fun swaps that I hope to see you all take part in, who knows I may do some that become series too. Much huggles... Brightest blessings be upon you all and happy creating

I’ve joined the second handmade postcard swap and I posted the cards I made for the first one on flicker and tagged it with swap it. I’ve been into ATCs for awhile and am liking the increase in size.

amyduff on Jun 17, 2018:

I just saw the big fatty swap and hope you will host another! I love these type of books!

LadyRisa on Mar 19, 2018:
