I got my doll in the STUFFED magazine!

Hello friends!
So much has been happening the last month or so that I haven't had a chance to tell you about my doll in the newest STUFFED magazine!
I am so honored to have this doll in Stuffed! I made a little "visionary doll". In the same way people make "visionary walls" where they post images of what their hopes and goals are, I made a doll with that same concept.
It's a little MINI ME doll holding a little doll and a copy of STUFFED. It is a doll to help me express my dreams of getting something I made into a magazine.

There is a little story explaining the concept and instructions on how you too can make your own visionary doll :)

Hugs to all!

Craft Hope

I was so happy to be made aware of a shop on etsy called "crafthope" that is helping raise money for the people effected by the earthquake in Haiti. I wanted to list an auction on ebay with money going to a charity for Haiti, but because I am in Canada, ebay USA wouldn't let me participate in their organized on-line charities. I was so happy to find out about craft hope!
100% of the money raised will be going to doctors without borders. Fellow Etsians are making a difference by donating their arts and crafts to this etsy shop (crafthope)
It is a wonderful idea! Take a moment and visit crafthope. There is a lot of beautiful items available!

I am donating this original 5x7 inch stretched canvas painting:

It is available HERE at the crafthope shop.

My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this terrible tragedy.

Check their amazing progress at their website.

In the mood for love?
I have two new Valentine's day paintings available.

She is giving you all her love.
You can find her hiding out over on etsy!
Plus, I have a new Frida Kahlo painting. She has a BIG BOUQUET of flowers to give to someone she loves:

You can find Frida on ebay.
Keep love in your heart!

I'm working on a couple of valentine's day paintings :)

I hope feelings of love are keeping you warm and cozy because it is pretty darn cold out!

What a nice surprise!

I was so surprised to see that in the newest issue of Somerset Studio "the art of mixed media and paper", a thank you note I sent them was added to their "letters to the editor" section at the front!

I sent Jenny Doh a thank you note for featuring me in the Artful Blogging magazine. Since it was Halloween at the time, I did a funny little drawing of a witch and her kitty flying over a city. I never expected to see it in a magazine! I was very thrilled when I did. What a wonderful surprise!
This particular issue is spectacular! I love the art in it so much! It is a must have.
Hugs to all!
Keep cozy!
