i have another friend online that has sent me over the course of the last 6 months two or three packages of goodies to make things with. i have made a few pendants and more recently i made this flower. i love that i didnt know what the object was that she sent me until one day when i looked at the back of a truck, i saw on each side of the lic. plate these little bulbous things that were exactly what she sent me! and when i started playing with the piece it came apart into two pieces and inside was a bulb. i removed the bulb, added a wide washer put the two pieces back together and wahla...a flower!
i've had so much support from artists over the last few years. during the end of the year i have had some tools break, one i have yet to replace just because i'm not ready to spend the money (my saw i use to cut pipes), but the other tool, my dremel.... an online artist sent me their spare and another artist then went and bought me a brand new one that was variable speed (the other one wasnt variable and it is now MY stand by )
many have bought my work, sent me 'junk' and been supportive and more importantly given me their friendship. i still have my art patron support for rent. it really wouldnt be possible for me to keep making art and living how i do without the people in my life. i like to think i give as much as i can to people i know in the ways that i can. i send art to people, anyone in my real life who needs help usually gets it if i can help. people are kinda what it is all about. well, people and art :)
