More Mushies....

I have completed some more of my colorful mushies...I hope to finish two more toadstools so that I can have a fairy-ring :)

(what's a fairy-ring? a fairy ring is a circle of toadstools fairies dance on in the early morning light) Aunt Leanne may be able to explain it better...

Ring--Ring--RING! Thought you might like to see my latest tape, marker, and pencil collage of telephones.

P.S. My art teacher took all of my artworks and is going to choose 3 of them for the art contest...I will know which ones she picks by tommorrow or thursday!

Crocheted Critter

I have completed my 2nd caterpillar for a friend! I am loving these colorful, creepy-crawly, critters!

Can't think of a name for this new bug??

Also, the first 5 people that respond to this post will get something made by me, it will be my choice, but especially made for you. However....this offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

-What I create will be just for you :)

-I will make no guarantees that you will like it. ( I hope you do!)

-You will recieve this item before the end of the year.

-You will get no clue of what the item is going to be or when you will recieve it.

The catch is that you have to repost this and put together something to be sent out as 5 surprises of your own. These could be anything...a poem or haiku, piece of art, a sketch...whatever you like, let your imagination run wild!
