Let your art guide you - week 10!

Another week, another submission to 'Let Your Art Guide You'. As you're all probably aware, I've started an art journal. I figured today's entry was a perfect submission for the LYAGY deal! This is, indeed, letting my art guide me! She's all about sparkling!

Also, a couple new and exciting things! I got a poppet in the mail as part of a swap with a lovely lady named Edel. She came all the way from Ireland! Sapphire opened her up and decided that she should be named Chaina. She's wonderful and whimsical. I'm very happy to have done this swap with Edel! She also included some Irish drinking socks, (lol) a clover phone charm and some chocolate! Yay!

And last but not least, I wanted to let it be known that some of my work was featured on craftster! Woo hoo! I made these costumes without a pattern a couple years ago for my boys. I'm pretty proud of them and think they turned out really well!

Dear, dear Deedra :-)

I got your cards! So wonderful, I totally loved them and also the little cupcakecard you wrote for me. You are sure missed too!

Thanks so much for sending me, I was really happy to read something from you. You write lovely!

I'm sorry I haven't been writing lately. But please know that I always try to watch and see what you have made :-). I think your style has slightly changed, and I love your recent entries. Wonderful.

Well I've got to go. Thanks so much for the mail, again! It really made me happy.

Much love,

OH MY GOODNESS, I love the fish heads! My boys would go nuts over those! I really like your painting this week. It reminds me of my little sassy nearly 3 year old!! :)

Deedra, I want a fish head for myself, just because! I love them so much! Congrats on being featured! You definitely deserve it!
