I approached the very talented Kris Hubick with an idea for a trade.....I needed collage sheets and she expressed a desire for a portrait of her beloved mini Pin.....Here is her pet all done up, red collar and spikes and all. The color choices were hers and of course, they are my favorites too, so that made it especially fun for me. Have you seen her collage sheets? I love the Valentine Dolls...I saw them and fell in love...go see at http://krishubick.blogspot.com/ You can see some of the art made with the sheets...It is pretty fun. I am going to use the sheets to make some Valentines heart for Jean the quilting Ranny.....I have been busy visiting blogs that are part of the "One heart, One World" giveaway...I already have made some new friends and I have seen ideas that make me want to run down to the basement and give it a try...The talent that is out there is amazing and the funny thing is a lot of us still struggle with accepting that it is talent that lets us do this. I get asked if I sell things and the truth is, I don't have the confidence to do it. If asked I will, but to just put myself out there...YIKES! I know a lot of you know what I am talking about. So far I think I have visited about 150 blogs...I think a lot of people just enter then leave, but I have to see what that person is all about and look at pictures. I have been a nervous wreck lately, and not sleeping much so this is what I have been doing. I did finally make the decision to move out and off the island by March first. I am scared, nervous and wondering if I am up to all the work involved but I feel some peace about it. It is going to be another huge change for my little family. We have had every major stress trigger on the scale.. Might as well add one more, then we can move onto our new and happy life!
