Members Of The Pacific Postcards Team - Series 63

Welcome to the Pacific Postcards Team Meet and Greet.  We have a great team that had start simply as an Etsy Team but has branched out into Artfire, G+FacebookTwitter and Pinterest.  We would love for you to join are team and help promote New Artistically designed or reproduced postcards, collecting vintage and antique postcards, creating digital art, and anything to do with ephemera and vintage imagery.

First I would like to introduce myself, Colleen (Captain) and Frances (Leader) of the team:

"First a brief little introduction: I grew up a Midwest farm girl from Wisconsin but through a series of moments of self discovery I have since moved to California and live the city life in Palm Springs.  I live in a beautiful contemporary home where my husband and I have designed a small but very beautiful Japanese Garden.

Unfortunately, though, the contemporary look does not blend with my passion for vintage and antique Victorian froufrou.  So I have created for myself a virtual world with my shops.  I welcome you to my attic filled with all the treasures found and creations made especially for you..." ~Colleen Cornelius

"I create mixed media, collage, folk art, religious icons, jewelry with a twist, paintings & digital art. Frida Kahlo has long been my muse and some of my art is inspired by her colorful life and paintings. I also enjoy dressing up in costume for any occasion but especially for Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos celebrations and of course as Frida.

Hunting for treasures at flea markets, thrift stores and antique shops is also a favorite past time and I often incorporate these objects into my art..." ~Frances Perea

"I make these images because I believe that everyone is creative. 
I believe in the beauty of all types of art.
I believe that adding even a little beauty to our everyday lives is essential to our well-being.
I believe that designing these images benefits you and benefits me. It’s a win-win situation.
I believe that fair trade is good trade and that the best is not necessarily the most expensive. 

Many,many moons ago, I was born in London, England. However, Canada has been my home and native land for years now so I think of myself as Canadian. 
I love creating - ANYTHING - my mind is a cornucopia of ideas that keep buzzing around and keeping me awake at night,
I draw little people and animals - I collect public domain art that is so enchanting that I must, absolutely MUST include it in my work.
I'm addicted to making little tiny circles and squares, Everywhere I look I see circles in squares and squares in circles. If I'm not seeing circles and squares, I see vintage pictures with a hazy look. I love old I love new, I'm totally conflicted!
Not only that, but I used to be a writer, now I call myself an artist - go figure.
When I'm not making circles and squares - I like to imagine tags and labels.
I'm of an age where I've missed out on the Facebook, and Twitter community - but I'm learning - slowly but surely.
Please look at these collages and let me know if you like them - better still - if you buy something then I'm sure you like it.
I love to work with people to achieved exactly what is needed - and I think my work is reasonably price. Hope you do." ~ Phyllis

"How lovely to have you visit my shop! 

My name is Marianne, also known as Songbird on the internet. 

I am an avid lover of anything vintage and love to hunt for classic, timely pieces and craft with them.

I live in the southern tip of the Netherlands – which means I can practically see Belgium, Germany and France from my own backyard! I love to get up early in the morning and hit the myriad of flea markets and rummage sales that are so bountiful in the region.

I am always on the lookout for unique and beautiful vintage curiosities to be enjoyed as they are, or that you can use in your own creative art-work.

Here in my Etsy shop, I have the pleasure of sharing my bounty of French and other European vintage treasures with you.

Feel welcome to learn more about me by visiting my blog:
www.songbirdblog.com

Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon!" ~ Marianne

"Hello! My name is Joanna, a.k.a. Pippin. Pippin comes from the nickname my mum gave me as a child, after the blossom of an apple tree. 

I live in the south-west of England, UK, which is a very beautiful place. It's got miles and miles of wild and jagged coastline, rolling hills and winding lanes, and an everlasting supply of cream teas.

Pippin Run Wild is my little business, based on my passion for remaking the old into the new, and hunting for vintage treasures.

I find there's something fascinating and charming about vintage and second-hand items. I love to wonder about the stories and past they might have had - the hands they were made by and passed through - on their journey to where I found them, and I love playing continuing their stories.
