featured artist AND the winner is......

the inspiration and support that has grown from taking misty's class goes beyond words.  there is so much i've gained from this experience.  one of the many best things is the support and friendships, the sharing and relating to so much of what we ALL experience as an artist.  i love how artists support each other and share so much of their heart and soul with people around them.  this month is the beginning of something new here on my blog........the "featured artist" this month is marcia cline of the outer banks.  she is a friend who i admire and i love her work.  marcia teaches yoga, has two beautiful  children and paints from the heart on the outer banks.  she breaks out the paints and the easel from the back of her jeep and sets up wherever she finds inspiration.  her paintings are colorful and vivid and reflect the simplicity and beauty of living in the outer banks.   i feel so lucky to have two of her paintings.  PLEASE visit her
 website HERE to see more of her work.  she's one of a kind and beautiful inside and out~
i chose marcia because i love her work.  i love her as a person.  and we are visiting there this weekend and hoping to see her while i'm there.  please stay in touch to see who the next featured artist might be YOU!

me, laura, marcia and her son, garnette

.......the winner of my first giveaway

 oh, i love this day.
  i woke up this morning to a sweet note that my man left for me on the bathroom counter. 
 simple.  sweet and kind. 
we had a few friends over last night for sushi and it ended with a delicious chocolate cake, 
dancing, lots of laughter, and other goodies that friends brought much fun.  

oh, the drawing for the necklace!!  
so, lacie drew a name this morning before we left for school....
and the winner..... is.......

congratulations kristin! 
i just need your address and i'll get it in the mail to YOU~

i carry your heart with me
by e.e. cummings

i carry your heart with me
(i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it
(anywhere i go, you go my dear;
and whatever is done by me is your doing, my darling).
i fear no fate
(for you are my fate, my sweet)
i want no world
(for beautiful, you are my world, my true).
and  you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you:
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life, which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart 
(i carry it in my heart).
