About Me

My photo
I've been an artist my whole life and have had so many exciting art related jobs, which makes me kinda of a jack of a bunch of trades. I'm also college grad with a BFA and went to the High School of Performing & Visual Arts here in Houston. Visit my shop at Etsy and I promise you'll most likely receive a Smile to take with you! I decided to mention that about 10 years ago I was on chemo for 2 years. The chemo worked, but left me with other Heath issues, such as a case of Fibro which left me with having to get disability.Sad news, since I had a great career, that I can not work anymore. With my Faith and determination, I am determined to still do my art. My art gives me inspiration and thank you God! Oh, and please follow my blog! I'd love to have yall join me in my show and tells and also would love to hear what yall have to show and tell!:)

Hairy Blankets for donation to CB
If you've seen any of my Hairy Blankets and want one, I'll try to make one for you
with colors in my stash. I only ask you make a donation to the CB. The paypal button is on http://furriendsofcb.blogspot.com/
Email me if you are interested mar123 at gmail dot com.
Here's one that is finished. It's heavy, 4' x 2'. The yarn must have been thick. It's white hair with some black and tan.

When I get it I'll take a pic of Kenzie on it. It may be too hot right now, but I bet she will pose for me. You know how cats are!
Have a great weekend!
Time sure does seem to go by fast these days!


  1. Congratulations on the feature! The Hairy Blankets sound wonderful and of course Kenzie is adorable!

  2. That's a really great interview, Linda! Congratulations! And we think that blanket is beautiful - the colors are purrfect for Kenzie!

    In answer to your question - when you are "tagged" by another blogger it's like the game of tag - you becomes "it" and do a certain thing (like post an old photo, or whatever.) It's fun but sometimes it's hard to keep up with.

    Also, I enjoyed hearing about your travels in Japan. We lived there in the early 1960's and it was SO different than it is now. (Everything was very inexpensive for one thing - my parents bought a lot of artwork and even some furniture.) And there were more people who lived and dressed in the traditional way.

  3. Yay Linda....woot woot...Hugs sweetie..love the pictures..

    S xoxo

  4. OMG that is tooo cute!! Loooove the dog!!! Darling! Sarah
