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!:)

Thank you so much Sarah!!!

I was just given this beautiful award from Sarah of Cottage Garden Studio! It's so beautiful and I wish I could pass it on to so many people! But that is my problem, I can't choose, as all my blog buddies are so wonderful, I want to give this award to everybody that follows me. Everybody is so special in different and awesome ways! So, if you follow my blog and make comments to me and I have made comments on your blog, you are deserving of this award too! Yall all inspire me!

These are Sarah's words:

A few months back I met Ces and Bella. I was lucky enough to be given their wonderful award for Renee by Ces personally (she is an amazing woman). I was quite touched by this. Bella popped into see me then too and I got to know her sweet self. Not to long after that, as Bella was preparing to move her family from Japan back here to the states her husband suddenly passed away. Heart wrenching to say the least. Bella has been back a few times to check in..but as you can well imagine she is busy with her life. Our hearts and prayers are with you Bella!!

Bella's partner in crime and dear friend Ces, created this beautiful award in honor of Bella. I have been blessed twice this week by two wonderful women. Sherry and Becca both offered this award to me and I take it with deep gratitude! Thank you both!!

In Ces's words...
"I designed this award to celebrate art in the blogs and to honor the value of friendship, sisterhood, sharing and caring. It is to be awarded to the gifted, accomplished, eloquent and talented blogger whose friendship and influence inspire us to do our best. That I named it after Bella Sinclair is because she epitomizes all of these things. She is an inspiration to many of us."

What a wonderful sweet gal Sarah is, I must say, just meeting her in the past couple of months and a very talented lady to boot!
Thank you with all my heart Sarah!
