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!:)

Announcements and Reminders!

I just wanted to put out the word again about my contest! Please read my instructions carefully. I love that yall want one of my pieces, but in order to win, I need yall to follow the steps to have a chance! I may even have 3 winners if I get enough people to participate!
Yes, I've decided to have a contest and yall can have your choice of one of 3 of my pieces! All you have to do is:
1) Tell me which one you want & why.
2) Post my contest on your blog, facebook and twitter with my shop http://LindaGJ.Etsy.com. & let me know about it, so I can see it.
3)Tell me what item you like best in my shop and leave me a comment about why!
I will pick out your name with the best comments and published posts you make. You may comment more than once as well! I will have to have at least 10 people enter for anyone to win. I'll pick the winner on the 25th of February, which is an extended date!So far I am getting the favorite as Peanut Love on canvas as a fave. I can only give one as a prize but if you don't win, I will be willing to give those of you that have followed all the rules a Peanut like that at half the very low cost, because I can make more, yet none of them will be exactly alike as they are originals. I just had to add that because I am terrible at picking one winner if all of yall pick the same piece as a fave. I may have to put yall's names in a hat or have my kitty Kenzie pick the winner!
Good Luck!!!
Indiesmiles is having a give away, or let's say it's practically a give away!
Who said Advertising had to be expensive!
You can receive one week of 150×100 ad space for only $1.00 how exciting!!

These ad spots will rotate.

  1. We posted your contest about a week ago. LOVING the Tuxie Love! Also, Feb. 25th is our GrandpaBeans birthday!

  2. I remembered after the fact that I didn't tell about your contest during my Friday Features which is what I wanted to do. Sorry about that. My head is full during tax season so my memory is shot!

  3. Hi Linda - we haven't had a chance to enter yet because we are busy but things should calm down soon (I hope!) We are so behind on everything! But we are excited to enter - we just are a bit slow!!
