My prize & a sketch

A couple of days ago, I received not one but two gorgeous, beaded seahorses from Linda. I had won just one seahorse on this giveaway but Linda very kindly included an extra one for my daughter, Michelle, who has been going through quite an emotional time lately. What a sweet and caring thing to do....thanks, from the both of us, Linda! Michelle happened to be visiting when the package arrived so there was much excitement I can tell you. We were both very impressed with the intricate and complex beadwork in the seahorses. I have been reading Linda's wonderful blog for close to two years now and it's full of interesting and often funny posts about her life in Florida with her husband and their two dogs. If you feel so inclined, Linda's blog and ETSY store are definitely worth checking out, my friends. Anywhoo, below, is a pic of my prize....aren't they gorgeous?!!!!.......check out that beadwork!

It's been a particularly busy week for me so I haven't been able to get too much done art-wise, however, I did manage this quick sketch yesterday.

Love, light and peace

  3. Aren't Linda's seahorses the sweetest ever? Yours and Michelle's are particularly beautiful!
    I didn't realize until recently that you are on EDM! I am, too, but I hardly ever post there. Do you post to the Flickr site? I'll have to watch for you there!

  5. Wonderfully beautiful seahorses, wow!! Linda does beautiful work and I enjoy her blog when I get a chance to roam around blog world.

    Cute drawing. Talking about your son and clothes takes me back, way back to when we would wait for the sales at Chick's Sporting Goods. They would have these huge parking lot tent sales and we would buy all four boys their school clothes. OUr bill was tremendous!, ha.
