Stuff Laying Around


Back to Fashion and design.

These chicks are on the hunt for kill and a steal.

A character study "The Girl Who Heard Color"

Hey Friends,
There is so much that has been going.
Weddings and funerals and then I fell down
and really got all banged up! I am all bandaged up
at this point and getting some rest.
Thanks so much for coming by and leaving
such kind comments and messages. Please know
that I appreciate you for doing so. Take care of
yourself and I promise I will return to visit each
and every single one of you beautiful souls.
Be blessed be creative.
Shalom

Aaawwwww Vee! WHAT!!!!! That's not good. I hope you are on the mend. I am so glad you are able to blog and shared these fabulous illustrations because it means your brain is all intact and still super. Please be careful. Having said that, I think this summer we were all so busy! Take care, darling. Thinking of you. TSUP!

P.S. I have red eyes from busted blood vessels so I look like a vampire, but I am okay. Nothing serious. :) Tsup!

V- What a summer for you. I hope the healing is swift and gentle and leaves you both emotionally and physically better! I fell this past June- stupid me, a perpetual sneaker wearer tried to wear "flatforms" to my daughter's 5th grade graduation. wrenched the back- pulled the shoulder out of socket and killed my left hip. It has been a 2 month recoup. Go easy my friend - be well!

Hey V, sorry it's been so long since I've been around to see what wonderfulness you've come up with. I hang my head in blogging shame.

So sorry to read about the loss of Grammy. I'm also so sorry about your fall-you're young and energetic so I'm sure you'll be up and around in no time. Take it easy and for your sake and the sake of all your fans, be careful girl! Miss you!

Hello, my fabulous sisterfriend! Awwww, dang it, I'm so sorry to hear about your fall and the aches and the bandages. :( I hope all is better now. And dear Vanessa, I'm very sorry to hear about your Granny. I am heartbroken.

It's been quite a summer for you. I know it was you who caused that earthquake. Because you are a mover and a shaker, and you rock my world! I am so giddy-delighted to see your amazing art again, so full of energy and love and life. I see a bit of you in everything you draw!

I've missed you!!!!! It's great to be here again. I think I'll stay awhile!

XOXOXO
