Thank you Stampington


I am honored to have been chosen in the Edgar Allan Poe Challenge!!!

I received the news yesterday that my art was published in the Sept issue of Somerset Studio.

They chose one of my dolls that I had shown at the gallery last year and that you see in my blog header.
This is the one
You can see it for yourself September 1st on newsstands!!!

This comes at a really odd time in my life and it was such an uplifter to the spirits!

Today I awake to super gray skies, rain, I mean real rain falling, grounds are soaked and the light trickle makes me soooo stinkin' happy. I have all our doors open to see and listen as the child still sleeps. It is like Autumn has arrived. Its almost a chill in the air. O my now great thunder cracking, its going to be a very good day :)
