Hope you all are doing well to stick to your New Year's resolutions.  I'm going to try and keep mine.  I've decided to try and get more of my work published, (I made this same resolution last year, but I really mean it this year)!   It's always hard to submit designs.  It just seems like you pour your heart into your pieces, and then hold your breath until you know you've been accepted by someone else.  Like Sally Field said at the Oscars years ago, "They like me, they really like me".  Were all just little kids inside trying to feel accepted.  Wish me luck, and I'll be sure to share all my upcoming results with all of you.

A couple posts back I shared with you guys my winners at the city wide art competition that I entered and won first, second  and third prize. You've seen my first and second prize winners, and today I thought I'd finally share the third prize winner.  I think it's one of my favorites, and here it is:

Isn't she beautiful!!  I ended up making another one just like her!  Here are some other viewpoints  of this piece.  

I hope you all enjoyed my lovely mermaid piece.  I know I love sharing all my pieces with all of you!  Have a great day and happy crafting!!!!


  1. I love your mixed media piece here. Thank you for sharing. Do you live in a big city that you have art competitions?

    1. Thank you CatieAn! So glad you enjoyed my mermaid as much as I do. I live in Tucson, AZ, and it's a yearly competition. Each year for the last three years I've won first place in the collage category. I suffer from chronic pain, and create a lot of my crafts from my bed, and the only one who sees my crafts is family. So it's really nice to hear that others love my creations as much as I do. Thanks for commenting, I love to hear from all of you.
