Faces from swap
It's been an exciting mail day around here today. Not only did I receive a RAK package from a great friend (more on that in a later post), I also received the much anticipated faces from Carol's annual beaded face swap and I could not be happier! The following are the faces I received as swaps for the four I submitted.
First up - this amazing face - "Mermaid" by Becka Rahn.
Next up - this beautiful face by Cyn Bicker
Third is this beauty by Monica Magness
Last, but certainly not least...
This gorgeous face is by Nancy Simel
Honestly... how lucky am I??? Every one - a work of art.
If you want to take a peek at all the faces swapped out this year (they are all gorgeous and diverse), please check out Carol's website for some great eye candy. It's so much fun and anyone can play! A really great way to acquire a wonderful little work of art by another artist.
If any of the artists that created/beaded the above faces happen to stop in here for a visit, let me just say...THANK YOU! I cherish each and every one of them.
Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body - Walt Whitman
