Being Brave, Almost

I had fun working on a
new header this past week,
not fancy like a lot of you
digital pros can do
but it still showed what I wanted to do
a collection of some of the "Stuff"
I have created over the past few years,
that I have kept.....
Mohair Teddy Bears,
Art Dolls from a online class by
A Doll that I sculpted of My 1st Grand Memphys,
Angel for My Daughter,
The gold Elephant sewn entirely by hand
while My Son at the time {4}
& I were sitting in a Florida Hospital
when My Dad was diagnosed with the mean "C",
to the Pink & Blue altered
Dinty Moore Can front left....

I guess I would say I like
Mixture of Mediums
to make a long & boring story shorter,
I (as many of you) have a
Dream, that is to be Published in
one of the Somerset Studio Magazines
{they are Truly the BEST}
back to the story,
I was listening this week to
was featured one of the days,
Amanda was just what My Soul
needed to hear,
she was talking about
submitting & all the details that
go along with that....
It was all I needed
to get the Spark & Courage
to gather
some of the pieces
I have made & get them ready to
send off....

Yes, I am finally going to be Brave enough
to send in some examples of what I like to do~

You may think this is Silly, but for Me to
Put Myself Out There
HUGE! ! !
So, this coming week,
I Am going to
Be Brave....

Now, go about your business & have a Great Weekend
