A Painted Feather, Paper Plane and Plenty of Hugs

My last post January 22, I blogged about my enrollment at Faulkner University and how busy I would be.  I didn't think it would be more than a month before I blogged again.

February 2013 turned out to be a month where I lost my dad unexpectedly and continued to make A's and B's in my classes.  I've gone through a difficult  time and am thankful for His grace that sustains me.  After my dad's death I'm listening to my children more intently. And have been blessed with wonderful little tokens of love from them. My 3 year old parted with a beloved painted feather and that caused my 2 year old to give up his precious paper plane.  They did these acts of love because granddaddy (mama's daddy) is in heaven with the Father.  For these tiny blessings I am thankful! 

I haven't had the energy to blog, but since I have a few sincere followers I wanted to post.  Thank you for actually stopping by my blog and commenting.  I'm encouraged to keep following my Art.

What's Been Keeping Me So Busy?

I've mentioned in a previous post that 2013 is going to be a super busy year for me.  Why?  Because I am enrolled at Faulkner University full-time majoring in Sociology with a minor in Pre-law. 

So if you don't see me around much, now you know why.  I'm thankful for the opportunity to go back to school and I am hopeful for the future.

Until then...

Nature Uncovered

Swaps from 2012.  Nature Uncovered was the name of the swap at Swap-bot.  We were to create, one artwork for our partner, that is in the theme of Nature Uncovered. How we represent the theme, and the mediums we worked in, were left up to us. A talented artist Tbaby made mine.  Her detailing is simply amazing!  I've already framed it and found a home for it. 

This is what I received.



This is what I sent.





Until next time...enjoy life!

Happy New Year!

2013 is going to be a busy  year for me.  I'll share more in the coming days.  I just wanted to pop in and wish those of you who visit a Happy New Year.

A quick mention- Featuring magazine has a call for mail art.  This sounds like a fun project to participate in.  I plan to submit.  Who knows?  I just might get published...exciting!

In the meantime...enjoy life!
