I finished a new painting today, which always makes me feel good, I like how the colour combintion has worked. Its woodburned, then painted on wood , with lots of layers and collage. The words are hope, special,promise.

Some people are just so kind :)

I am constantly reminded of the goodness in people on here and on etsy. I come across people who are so encouraging, people who want to help others, people who go out of their way, people who bring sunshine to others, and people who you just want to hug!
Here is an example of someone who calls me an Angel, when she is one herself

Thank you everyone who reads my blog, encourages me, and restores my faith in mankind...I love you all x

These are 2 paintings I have done as a commission for 2 sisters.

Art doll

I made this art doll for a swap I am in, I am not the best with a sewing machine, we seem to fall out!, but I can hand stitch :)
I transfered one of my paintings onto cotton, and cut out the face, and then stitched onto the doll, so she is really unique! she has wild purple hair and a fabric crown. I hope who gets her loves her :)

What happened???

Well I couldn't get on blogger yesterday, at all!! it was so annoying, but today its here :)

I had a lovely surprise the other day, the winner of my giveaway, Michele, from soggibottom, actually rang me to say thank you for the bag she received! She was so encouraging, it was lovely to talk to her and get some feedback, she made my day!! - thanks Michele :)

I have given my cards to the gallery, and put a few items in the local shop "Treasure". Treasure is a lovely shop run by Jenny. It is a jewelery shop and bead bar ,where you can buy alsorts of beading goodies, and there are workshops you can do, or you can call in and sit down and make an item of jewelery- what a fab idea! She also sells local art and crafts, and believe you me there are some lovely things in that shop!
So for me its fingers crossed that they now sell....please send me positive thoughts :)

I have made a few note card sets, one is for sale in my etsy shop.
