Giveaway, and some other fun stuff!

I was asked by Grace of the sandier pastures blog to do a giveaway and of course I jumped at the chance! She has such a wonderful blog with many many giveaways and just very interesting information about her life in Dubai. Since she found me I have gotten sucked into her blog which is not hard to do. If you have not checked her out you should! Also if you want a chance to win your choice of any 8.5" x 11" archival print of mine then hop on over to her blog and see how you can enter to win...super easy! Good luck :) The winner will be chosen at random on July 31st so you have plenty of time and you can enter more then once! YAY

Now to share again with all of you one of my favorite Etsians who lives in Turkey and has become a good Etsy friend. I hope someday I get to meet her in person but she is really far away. Below is a little sampler package of her work she sent me. It truly was like
Christmas day when I opened up the neatly packaged box she sent me just because she is the sweetest lady out there. You can find Fusun's amazing work in her Etsy shop Zeustones!

So my pictures of her work are terrible b/c I took them inside with bad lighting but here they are anyway. This stone necklace is so perfect and meticulous I can not believe she does this by hand (well I do but it amazes me)!

So also in the package she sent me was a magnet, an ornament and 2 stones. She is so generous and talented my jaw was on the floor and when my husband came home he could not believe it either. So I just knew I had to do something just for her (but of course I do not know if it could ever compare to what she has made for me).

So here is the piece I have made for Fusun. I am waiting to send it to her b/c she had been traveling but I am hoping she enjoys it even just a fraction of how much I have enjoyed her work!!!

Commssioned piece for
This piece is still in progress and there may need to be some changes made (still waiting to hear from my client) but I thought I would share what I have so far. I have never made a fountain before and had a lot of fun trying to make a broken tiled looking fountian.

It has been a busy week for commissioned work but I feel so lucky and blest to be asked by super cool, art appreciating people to make things for them! Yay for art!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!
