Hey Celita, GREAT JOB - super artistic! There was a lot of cards that were my favorite.. I loved the David & Goliath, Peter Sinks but my very favorite was The Way, The Truth, And The Life. It has sooo much depth and creativity in it. I love it!

I just love your love tree card. You are so talented! Keep up the good work - I can't believe you've only been doing this one year - I've been cutting for over 10 years and am no where near as accomplished!!

Barb said...

Love, love, love your Biblical cuttings because they're BIBLICAL.
Jonah and the fish is one of my favorite stories in the Bible so I'll choose your Jonah cutting, but I also really like your men casting their nets into the water cut. Keep up the GREAT work.

Artyfax said...

Hi Celita, how to choose a favourite? This is a very hard question. I guess it must be the atc which I received from you in a trade, although I do agree with others that you have become so skilled in this craft over your year.

Lei said...

I also heart the lvoe tree card! Thanks for telling me about this and popping in to say hi!

mannequin said...

Happy Artaversary!
Not only are they beautiful but knowing what a steady hand it takes to create makes them even more lovely.
You are truly talented dearie!

I always get depressed in the summertime and it feels like summer is here. I like Exploding Heart the best, natch.
Thank you for the giveaway and celebrating with us.:)

Ashlyn said...

This is my first time to your site, so, I took a look through all your posts and I am blown away! ALL of your work is AMAZING! It was so hard to choose. But my favorites are: Feb.19 "Lots of Love for Jadon", Feb.14 "The Love Tree" and Nov.21 "The Work Of Stress And Misunderstanding: Exploding Heart And Frazzled Nerves".

Great Work, Keep it Up!
Hugs, Ashlyn
P.S. I'm now a follower

Kim, I meant a follower directly on my blog (see little box in right hand column)... Sorry. Thanks for joining in the giveaway fun. So glad to have you "over".:-)

Everyone, thank you so much for your kind and enthusiastic comments. Really I am SO excited about this opportunity to share my "blogaversary"/"artaversary" with you. Cool words, huh? Thanks, Ila and Mannequin, for clueing me in to them! Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Mannequin, though not my prettiest cut, more personal emotion went into cutting it than most of them put together. Glad you like it. Though, sorry that you are having a hard time... thinking of you.

truly blessed said...

Oh my word, your work is BEAUTIFUL! I love papercutting! I've done a tiny bit, but nothing like yours. I'd love to follow your blog and also have a chance to win a piece of your work! Ooooh, I forgot to go through and pick my fav. I'll be right back!

truly blessed said...

I'm back! How do I pick just one??? I love ...I stand with arms high and heart abandoned...and...the one you did for a wedding gift..S.S. Something. I can't remember the name, but it's gorgeous. I also really like the one that is in the top right corner of your blog...with the car and the verse on it. Very cute. Your work it so tiny, what kind of tools do you use?

Veri said...

My congratulation!! really one year?? I thought it must be longer. Time is running!! your papercuts are wonderful and the one we traded a long time ago found a very good place at my collection :-)
My favorite at your flickr is: The Lollipop from December 2008

Truly Blessed, I use a pencil, an exacto knife, sometimes bee scissors (Target), a self-healing cutting mat, scrapbooking paper or cardstock, and simple elmer's-like glue. oh, and a paper trimmer, a big one from Office Max and a little one from Creative Memories. Too much information??? :-) It is a great "poor man's" hobby because it is not terribly expensive, requires easy to get items, and can be used in so many ways. :-) I truly enjoy it!!!

Snippety Gibbet said...

Wow!!! Look at all these comments! Woohoo!!! I have so much of your work, I'm going to not hog it all. I'll let someone else have a chance. Congratulations on your anniversary. You know I love your work. xox!!! jan

Digital Misfit said...

You are very talented, especially for only having been a papercutter for a year.
My favorite piece is I Stand With Arms High And Heart Abandoned.
It is absolutely beautiful and inspiring.

I love the one you sent my daughter for her birthday. It was the rooster. I love the country-looking papercuts...farm-style. Happy Anniversary!!

Snippety Gibbet said...

My favorites are the illustrated Bible stories with the actual printed stories in the background. I find those so appealing. I do love all you create, but those are my all time favorites. jan

Momofboys said...

Celita they are all so beautiful and unique it was hard to just choose ONE! But I would have to say the Feb. 14th one to Anthony was very sweet and simple yet it speaks volumes!! You truly have been given a creative gift...you need to start your own business and start selling these!! Love you sweety =)

Cynthia Rae said...

This sounds like a great idea!

As for Dr. Seuss, I found my first Dr. Seuss in a book shop in Venice. I just happened by the window and there it was. My husband had never hear of him before. We know have a small collectoin of his books in both English and Italian. Plus, last year the movie "Horton and Who's" came in Italy (it was an English movie dubbed into Italian). So it should be eaiser to find his stuff in Italy.

So, where in Italy are you? If you would like, send me an email. I have my address listed on my blog.

My favorite papercut is Sunset in Cassano. I love the radiance of color and the whimsey in depicting one of the most beautiful scenes we ever witness in life. It is a scene full of hope and rest.
