Danielle Barlow had a new treasury spot on Etsy. I was very grateful that she has included one of my purse mirrors along with an incredible selection of different artists works. The treasury was entitled 'A Time of Magic' This one has now exspired as these treasurys only last three days, but they are interesting to view, and there are lots!
I had ordered two reversable fabric bandanas from our friends Velma Tracy, and Leo at ‘Designsbyone, on Etsy.http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5407097 Today they came, Heres my Technical Director Modeling, check Poppy's Blog for more Pictures. No, she doesn't mind wearing them in the least, she positively soaks up the extra attention from people who make a fuss of her.
I pinched the text from Danielle text because she has explained it sowell, and I know she wont mind. So, Heres goes, I will play the 'tagging game', as I have never done it before. I don't usually do the 'pass it on' stuff, but this seems harmless, and kind of interesting to read ! I was tagged by http://daniellebarlowart.blogspot.com/ I gather that what I have to do is tell you 7 interesting (and little known) facts about myself, and tag 7 other bloggers.
1. I also have Romany gypsy in my ancient ancestory,way back on my maternal grandmother’s side all her family the ‘Harwoods’ were dark and raven haired. My Grandmother had green eyes and kept her jet black hair(no Grey) into her late 80’s, when she passed on. 2. I often dream about things that haven’t happened yet, or of people when they are ill, not always nice. 3. In my school days, when I stayed for school dinners(that were awful) I would swap my dinner for someone elses pudding/desert, and then go around again for seconds of pudding. No I was healthy and really skinny. One or twice in the year we had an awful cocoa pops chocolate covered puffed wheat slice with mint custard, I hated it. All the other kids loved it. 4. I won an award at school for the best results for the student in my year. I chose a book for my gift award, on ponies and showing, by Glenda Spooner, it was a great treat, as I love reading. 5. I still have my teddy from when I was 1year old, I went to pick him up the other day by his ear,(He doesnt Mind) I realised his ear was worn, I must have always done that since a child.He has a little lamb friend, I can remember chosing for my Christmas present, when I was a toddler, I was lifted up to see him on the top shelf of the toy shop. They are kept together, and I worry what will happen to them when I die. 6. I painted a leather biker jacket for one of my nephews, with a hellhound snarling out of a flaming circle, his choice. I think it was maybe an Iron maiden album cover. He was constantly being stopped in the streets by bikers wanted to know where he got it painted. 7. I used to think I came from outer space as a small child, I would lie awake in bed and ask them to come and take me home, as I didnt like it here.....
Well, there you have it! 7 rather random facts about me! I now tag 4, a bit short I'm afraid, but there you go..
Jennifer MacNeill-Traylor is a member of a juried group of Ebay horse artists who started the Whoa Charity Sketchbook project earlier this year. Back in April, she asked for members to sign up and take turns to add original equine art to an 80 page blank book. She had members add work from here in Great Britian, to all over the States. Each artist was given up to 5 pages to sketch whatever they chose. Also click HERE to see the sketchbook blog. Pictures of all new art is added by Jen, to the site as soon as it is completed. Hopes are bouyant to have the book finished and on Ebay for sale around Christmas time.
Jen herself produces wonderful,rich artworks ,http://gypsymare.blogspot.com/and plaques with a Halloween ,fantasy twist, she also does a great line in Vanners.
As Danielle states in her blog entry; "We are also looking into the possibility of having the sketchbook printed, so we can sell copies of it, although the costs are looking a little prohibitive at the moment. Any suggestions here are welcome"!
Thank you for dropping by.
