Art in the mail!

this folk art painting of my beloved kitty, Pebbles, was done by Benedetta. I got Pebbles when i was graduating from highschool in 1982 and had him for 19 years. he was the best cat ever! Benedetta and i met thru OWOH and i didn't want to wait to see if maybe i might win her giveaway, so i asked her if she'd be interested in an art swap. i made her a necklace. she is now taking custom orders on pets, so if you need that perfect gift for that hard to please person, maybe you can do their favorite pet for them!
here is a picture of Benedetta wearing her necklace (picture hijacked from her blog!)


and how about this precious doll? isn't she too cute? this was done by another blogger i met, Kim, at Once upon a blue crow. i also met her thru OWOH and fell in love with her dolls and again presented the idea of a trade (and i'm so glad they were both into it!). i've commissioned another doll for my neice's b-day in July. i also made Kim a necklace and she was kind enough to send this picture of her wearing it. isn't she pretty?
