A lovely award and a chuckle if you need one :)


I'd like to thank the beautiful and talented Vania for giving me this wonderful Renee Award!!
Thank you Val!!♥ This is an amazing award and has so much meaning, I'm so very honored to receive it!

This wonderful Renee Award was created by Bella and Ces in honor of their friend Renee
Please, if you can, take a moment to visit their blogs!
My chosen 8 nominees to pass this award to are:

Suzi Whitaker - Art With a Touch of Whimsey
Karen D. Milstein - Cotton Pickin' Ranch
Flor Larios Art
Monica Zuniga - Hands and Heart
Pam Warden - Pam Warden Art
Mariposa - Sirens Idyll
Darlene Pringle - A Dancing Mango
Donna - DZ Fantasy


Now for the funny part. I know I shouldn't put my art down, I've been told that a thousand times, but look at this!

It's my first cloth and clay doll from Gritty Jane's workshop. She's a fabulous teacher, even though it may not appear that way from my girlie here :) My dress didn't stain evenly, her hair is thin (like mine!) and her expression is that of shock mixed with sadness. Is that possible? Yes it is! Look at what I did to her neck!

I will try fix this tonight. Poor girl. Now, what to name the poor thing. Antoinette? hehe
This was a fun class and I learned lots that I hope to incorporate into my artwork as I go. The sewing and waiting for clay to dry was the only areas the impatient me had trouble with. I'll have to learn to deal with that :)

Have a beautiful day!!♥
