Vote 4 Emily

My beautiful little sister Emily just graduated from high school... (for those of you doing the math, yes I am in fact 20 years older).

Emily is a BRILLIANT photographer. Her work includes gorgeous self portraits, breathtaking nature scenes, cosmic companion candids and heart-strung pet photographs.  

She needs your votes to win a scholarship for school. 
Please help the girl out and VOTE for her awesome picture.

Thank you so much for supporting the Future Artists of America!

Thanks Yall !!!!

Under The Sea Swap

I was so thrilled to find a package in the mail sent from my Under the Sea Swap Buddy, Amy from Heart of A Seed. There she is below.  Her name is Emmaleen!  Isn't she adorable. Love Her!!! She now keeps me company in my studio, watching me run mermaids through my assembly line.  (Photos are courtesy of Amy).

Below is Lucy the Mermaid that I made to swap with Amy. Let me just say, this was my first ever attempt at doll making.   I've since made several more and they are selling faster than I can make them, so I would like to thank Zan at Wild At Heart Art  for hosting the underwater swap and giving me the opportunity to discover my little gift of making Mermaids. 

I make these mermaids in memory of a good friend, Matthew Beard. He was amazing guy who dedicated his life to saving the coral reefs.  His research continues to be studied by other scientists in hopes of saving our oceans and our world.  To learn more about how to save the coral reef .

Thanks for taking the time to see what we've been up to!
