PPF and achieving my aim...

Last week I decided that a big goal for this year was to give away more of my attempts of getting my art on....i am in the process of making 4 pieces for friends and family...
this is the photo of one almost done...the colour is a bit brighter in this photo maybe.

It has lots of layers of stuff...maybe a bit too much...lol..but i am learning...ha ha ha...it says...you make me happy, when skies are grey....

I am linking this to PPF...




I would also love to give a big huge cyber hug to Esther ..i was such a lucky girl to have won a competition she had running...honestly, i have loved E.s work from the word go...i call her E and also the queen of texture....go check her out, she is an inspiration, and a gorgeous girl to boot!!!Thanks E...xxx

Until next time
lots of it

peggy gatto said...

what a delightful piece!

Alicia C said...

such gorgeous work - I LOVE the 3 dimensionality of buttons and butterflies! What a great piece...

BTW read back on the story of your son - I sincerely hope he's doing better. (I actually read from the beginning, LOL and am amazed at your fortitude and HAPPY that everyone is fine so far)

One point from the naturopath's apothecary (take it or leave it - God knows you can't replace modern medicine) - GARLIC is his best friend.

Boosts the immune system AND helps pretty specifically with lung inflammation.

Garlic and onion. Finding ways to incorporate these in his diet might make a long- term difference. I may soon post a blog entry re. a particular recipe for onion smoothie (yum!!) and other respiratory health things that has taken me out of tight spots now and again.

best of luck!
