So why am I happy?

I know I told you in my last post that I was resting, but that's not exactly true. The fabric collage I sold in Huntsville, on my recent visit, lead to another opportunity to send a few more RockCandy Creations to that town. Thanks to Karen who wanted one similar to 'REST' but with a photo of her mom at two years old. She also loved the 'I sing because I'm happy...' quote. Here is what came together after ripping, staining, burning, and stitching.

Then she wanted one similar to
'Wisdom begins in wonder'
her co-worker, Patsy bought...
...but with her picture from kindergarten.
So why am I happy?
Because creating art makes me happy
and having someone else like it too...
well that's just icing on the cake.

Well Candy you made my heart sing. I love both pieces you did for me. They are just beautiful. The picture doesn't do them justice.
Can't wait to give my Mother her's. I know she'll love it as much as I love mine. Love your blog. Please keep sharing all your creative talent.
Take care, Karen
