The winner is........


First of all thanks to all of you who commented. I love to know when your there and actually reading what I have to say.Although its not always emotional,very personal,intellectual or even very intresting I still want to know I'm doing this for a reason and that reason is you .Each and every one of you out there. Thank you so much!
Okay on to the winner...........is...........Peacock Fairy! Yippy! So shoot me an email with your shipping info and I'll get your goodies out to you.
So I get asked alot what inspires me and always my first response is that I can.I can.....That inspires me. We are all so programed to think we have to grow up ,go to school,get married,have a good job and a family.Our art,our talents are suppressed by society and what they think is how we should be.Well I've never done anything the right way.I quit high scool,had a baby out of wed lock,I didnt go to collage and i didnt get married because everyone said I needed a father for my daughter. I waited till I found the perfect man not only for me but also for my daughter.Tony........Those of you who know him,do I need to say more?
Together Tony and I discoverd our suppressed artistic talents and pulled them out from the deep,deep places they where hidden.We did this together,and thats soooo inspiring.
So maybe thats a little fruity for you ,but it really means somthing to me and I couldnt be happier with the out come.
On another note things that inspire me are old wharehouses and old city buildings.Nuts and bolts that you find in the allyways of the city streets.
Heres a few pictures of our walk this morning and some of the inspiration of my own little town...........



Okay and here are some of our little Lucy........

Lulu and her man.....
This girl loves her some sticks!




She's so beautiful........

Lisa,
I didn't know all this about you (how could I?). I'm so glad you shared it, I love that self-determination and that you pull your art from deep inside yourself! I grew up thinking I had to follow all the rules, and through getting married and having babies my focus continually shifted to where my boys and I are living a very free-flowing life and finding what is important to us as we go along. Stories like this, and your work, are so inspiring and supportive to my path. Thank you for sharing and for doing what you do!

Right on! Nice to know you guys are out there, too! Isn't it terrible how society trains us to suppress so much of our natural instinct? I was just wondering out loud to Guy the other day ... about the age 18. Why is it that at that age you are supposedly free to do what you like. Why not 13 or 14? Guy was ready to leave home at that age and so are a lot of people I know. It's a strange, structured world we live in. Glad to have stumbled upon you guys through Lorelei's blog. :) Blanche
