Stuff....and ppf

So, i have an amazing friend who at times in my life has been the best therapy, she is a brave brave girl for so so many reasons....


Last year she moved to another state and i went to visit her the weekend just gone....


it is tradition now that for her birthday and whenever i give her a piece i have made.....


i recently watched a christy tomlinson tute on making a little girl canvas...i love it so much i thought i would give it a go my self....


here is my try at something in the christy t inspired....


my friend was so happy with it, she was leant up against the wall straight away...


it is so rewarding giving people pieces i have made for gifts...that was 3 this christmas, and i have some more i wish to gift too...


and even tho its so late i will link this to ppf...the place i turn to when i need inspiration, and gee i need it today as we have just found out the test results for my mama...she has lymphoma...for those of you who have given me loving thoughts when i talked about my mum last post....................
sorry to those who i have not visited of late, been rather crazy mad busy with way too much stuff and alot of it yukky stuff...


thanks again to all of you who give me such encouraging comments, your kind words are so appreciated...

My favorite gifts are the ones people make themselves. :) Paintings in particular. You're a great friend and I totally love Christy. I took one of her workshops as well. :)
