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!:)

I Feel Like a Prize Winner Today! Lots of Thanks are in order!

Mishkat sent me her copy of Dewey!!! Isn't she the sweetest? Just the other day at the dr's office, a lady was holding the same book and really giving it a sales pitch! She was gleefully, if that's a word, bragging about how wonderful this book is and that it's such a "feel good" book! So today, I go to the mail and lo and behold, there is this package from Mishkat with this very book, "Dewey" in it!!! Sorry about my photography! I am so excited to read it and once I finish it I have to give it to my mom because my parents are so crazy about cats too!

And one more thing I must share with yall! For goodness gracious, Meghann at http://FibroDiaries.bogspot.com is having a contest, prize give-away! Who would pass this up? I already own one of her gorgeous rings that I posted on my blog and yall can see throughout my posts I've shown some of her gorgeous pieces! She is having a give away that should not be ignored! Her jewelry and photographs are to die for!
They are outstanding and so beautiful! Yall must visit her blog and sign up! She has 2 contests going on actually and this one I speak of is just today, but the one below this contest that I speak of, I believe goes on longer! I have already picked out my favorite piece, which is really not my very favorite, because all of her items are my favorites. I just chose this piece because I wear a lot of browns and I do love this ring so much! It could look fabulous with some of my other jewelry and attire!
I already wear her light green ring she customized just for me so much!
I am sharing this with yall because I don't want yall to miss out on this great opportunity!
Thank you Meghann for giving us the opportunity to get a chance to win one of your precious items!!!

Hope all of yall have a wonderful Wednesday evening!
Good night and pleasant dreams!
Linda :)
