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!:)

Contest and/or Charity Birthday Bash!

http://www.indiesmiles.com/charity-birthday-bash/ This link will lead you to the right page for all the information.
This is just one item I plan on entering into the handmade art contest for 5.00! I'm so proud to say that Indiesmiles is have a 0ne year Birthday Bash and by celebrating we are having a fundraiser of all the money going towards the ASPCA!!!
The Handmade Contest
This link will only lead you to the Art Contest, but is also on the main link at the top that I added.
You may enter $5.00 alone, and or enter a picture of your pet for the Pet contest to win prizes, or you could chose to enter a photo of your handmade item in the Art contest. Each 5.00 will give you the chance to enter as many pictures you would like and I just noticed you may also leave your shop or blogsite in, and when a person clicks on your picture it will show all your details! Here is another art item I will be entering: I am working on changing my Kenzie photo to a better size when enlarged, because I made it too small and so when it's enlarged it looks too grainy, plus I would like to edit my comments. So please make sure you are totally satisfied before entering as I have a way in, since I am a columnist there. Hey, by the way to vote is for free!!! I want to also add my belated kitty Peanut that lived to be 20 years old because I actually got her at the ASPCA.The Pet Contest http://www.indiesmiles.com/charity-birthday-bash/best-pet-pic/ (This link will only lead you to the Pet Contest but is also listed on the main link I added at the top.) I know for a fact that they are a great place although they have too many animals and are in desperate need of help and adoptions. I got Peanut and her brother that passed away when he was 11 yrs old. I miss them both terribly, but you pet lovers know about that. Kenzie was brought into my life and we fell in love as yall know.
So, this is a great way to give to a wonderful cause, and also, if you want to add your pic or pics to the Pet and/or Handmade pic for fabulous prizes if you get the most votes.
If you are strapped for 5.00, at least come vote for one or all of my pics!!!

Hope yall's summer is not ending like mine, where it's still in the 90's!!! I sure am looking forward to a cool breeze....at least one!That may take some time though. I hear we may be having a cool front this weekend. Uppers in the 90's and at night in the 70's. Ummm....ok..?
Linda :)
