Thanks to all


So many of you have written such great comments and kudos on my work .... I really would love to thank each of you personally but most of the time the emails come in with a no-reply on the address .... so I can't send you a personal thank you ... so this is to all of you .... Thanks so much Linda

Mother Nature - for Breast Cancer Fundraiser



I was asked to alter a wire dress form for a fund-raiser for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and I happily took the challenge ...... this is a disease that has touched many of our lives in someway and is such a worthy cause ...... there will be a silent auction at Stamp Salado and the winners will be notifyed on Sept. 28, 2008 .... there will be refreshments from 3pm - 6pm .... if you wish to bid on my dress form or any of the other artist that are participating please contact Sandra Shaw by clicking on the link which will take you to her website and you can get all of the detail ... I believe she might be willing to take call in bids with credit card numbers if you are unable to attend ...... The dress is made from handmade paper, ribbon, fibers and embossed velvet ribbon then trimmed with ribbon flowers, bird nest with eggs, and a lovely little bird, miniature tags, a handmade ch√Ętelaine complete with a little book of Mother Nature and a bustle that has been attached with a swatch of raw silk ... thanks for your support ...... Linda
