Birds of a feather...





A new piece...finally.





One of my friends had a birthday and I decided to make her something.

I hope she liked it.



Friends are a blessing. A needed part of ones life.





Today...I am thankful for friends!

Wow- thank you all so much!!!! I am so humbled by your sweet comments. Really- I am such a nerd and doubt myself all the time. I nearly didn't give it to her because I didn't think it was good enough. ( Rolling eyes)Thank you all so much for making me more confident in my work ;)

My only talents are fixing cars and restoring boats. But I like your talents.

Emily Anne Leyland ( Art-n-Sewl) said...

Oldboatguy- I happen to like your talents too. I would love to be able to restore a boat like you did.

Thanks :O)

My favorite piece is your Poppy on the antique book pages. I LOVE IT!!! This is giving me courage to what I love to do most. Create!

Darci said...

Wow! I am so jealous that the artistic talent didn't get passed to me, since we are cousins and all. What a beautiful piece of art. You could start your own business. I would be a customer for sure. It is so fun to see your beautiful face again. I can't remember the last time we saw each other. I hope you and your family are doing well.
