Love Squared

I have been lucky to participate in the Pink Artist Doll, an efforts against breast cancer. I like so many have lost family and friends to various types of cancer. So this effort has special meaning to me.

Monica Magness has finished creating the art doll out of the squares created by 182 artists. Isn’t that fantastic! The Pin Artist Doll was unveiled Tuesday, April 1, 2002. Monica’s husband, Jeff Magness, photographed the doll for us (pink artists) to share with you. My 2”x2” square is just a small contribution in comparison to the great effort that Monica put into this project

Here she is!
And to quote Monica because her words are so fitting:
“Her name is Love Squared." She smiles because already she knows love and is able to give love unconditionally. To many, she is a symbol of hope. She stands for COURAGE and was built by a community of givers. "

I would like to dedicate my contribution in this project to the special women in my life. My two beautiful and loving daughters of whom I could not be prouder, my sister Kim and friend Janet who are always just a call or email away, and my Mother who taught me to sew. And to end with, Shirley and Grandma, who we lost battling cancer and who, I believe look down on me from the heavens
Love you guys.

I hope you follow along as the remaining chapters of the doll unfold. She'll premier in Art Doll Quarterly™ and head off to eBay for actions. The proceeds will go towards the fight against breast cancer. To see to lean more about the making of Love Squared." and to see more photos visit girls gone thread wild.

New Blog Page Image

I was messing around today and decided it was time for a new blog page image and this is what I came up with. I think it's a nice change.

I signed up for another set of little beauties on Creative Card Swap this time the theme is underwater. Little beauties are quick little "art starters". I have found them useful for greeting cards, ATC's, and different mixed media projects. Guess I'm hooked on them.

Here's the latest set of 10:
