This Sunday was my niece Liz's Baby Shower and I wanted to make something special for her baby. So I did this mixed media piece. (don't have a picture of it frame)
Liz and Josh own a apple farm and they have real bee's on there farm. They have the bee boxes and someone comes and tends to them. Very cool. Well anyway our (you notice how I say our) new baby is going to be the Queen Bee.
I wrote on the back how much I love her already even though I haven't met her yet. She is going to have 2 wonderful parents to romp around the woods. I know she will be a wonderful free spirit like the rest of our family. Makes me cry thinking about it.
Oh and I wish I had pictures (maybe I can get some for next week post) My sister made a Tutu with a tool belt attached to the tutu. (Josh is a contractor) So adorable.
Josh say's no Fru Fru girl for him. So we tease him that she will be a contractor with a TuTu tool belt.

People always want to know how I can let go of my pieces. But this is a perfect example of why I do. Liz had a mound of presents that she was opening. And when she got to my present to her and she opened it up. She burst out crying. The feeling I get from that is so much greater then holding on to a painting. This way I know that baby is going to wake up in the morning and see my painting in her room and give her a little sparkle of joy to start her day. And that gives me so much more satisfaction then just having it sit in my art room. I can't wait to meet her.
Go visit all the wonderful artist!
Think about what you can do today to add some joy into someone else's life. If everyone would just do one thing each day to brighten someone elses world. Wow.... what a great world this would be.
