FYI (family photo of mom and friends,seemed appropriate)

A few words about my 8 choices for the Proximidade Award!

Barb and judy! My patient teachers when I joined alteredartswap yahoo group. They taught me to cut and paste and resize images, post my pics and let me play in group projects...even when I'd get the details all muddled in my mind. Thank you!

Beth, Tally, Tamara, and daughters! You let me share your families and make me feel like a contemporary! I love it!

Carol! I knew you online and then had the pleasure of meeting you last fall. You have an amazing calming way about you that I love. Always encouraging and teaching in the nicest ways!

Julie, my youngest! Two years ago when I stayed at your home, I discovered "the blog"! You were such an inspiration and I came home and said "I can do this".....Thank you!

Sandee...who was not on my list cause someone beat me to it and gave her this award!!!! She used to live 15 minutes away from me. We would have play days and meet for coffee to exchange round robin projects and oooo and ahhhhh over the art work of others that we were passing on!. We went on several "altered trips"...thanks to my directions(ask tally about that) and she was always there for me. I have watched her art develope into her own unique and beautiful style. She has an instinct for combining images and papers that is a delight!


Tally for sharing your family!

Tamara for friendship and begonias!

Julie for your generous hospitality!

Barb for sharing your darling family!

Judy for your encouragement!

Jen, for your warmth and thoughtfulness!

Beth for your friendship and wonderful sense of humor!

Carol,for being my teacher and friend!

God bless us all, everyone.

Santa Claus is coming to.......
