First Real Post, but 2nd Actual and my fairy painting

Okay so, we get to make the first artistic entry. I want to start it out but introducing you to the main man in my life since I graduated high school.  Though I must admit he has lived with my parents so I don't hurt him. These are pictures of Sam. If you want to know his story I can tell it to you sometime, but I don't feel comfortable writing it out for everyone and their grandma to see.  Without further adieu here is Sam...


I was also in a Secret Sister Box Swap and I hope that my sister loves my box.  This is the box and the goodies I sent. I am anxiously awaiting to hear a reply from her or someone that she likes what she received.


I have recently also painted a purple fairy. Its a Melted Crayon technique that I learned from Martha (seekingforart). After melting the crayons and findingthe image I painted her with acrylics. This was just a process to get my juices flowing so she is only on bristol board which is a little bumpy and I dont care too much for that. But she is.

Please respect that all these items are my creations and do not take images without asking for my consent. And if you use the images you are to credit me. Thank you.
