My latest Giveaway has a new home!

Howdy Folks,

Since my latest creation made it to her new home, I can now share with you how she turned out.  Sue, from "Sue Loves Cherries" won my fall giveaway and she was asked to choose from a selection of graphics in which I would create a 3-D version for her.  She chose the adorable little girl (above) and asked if I could make her just a little more personal by changing her dress color to red and adding cherries on the front.

Well, here she is:

She stands about 17" tall!


Check out the cute, little
cherry buttons!
Yes, those are cherries
she's holding behind
her back.....who knew!

She's extremely happy to be in her new home.

So, whaddaya think?????  I think she's pretty damn darn cute, and I love her red dress with the cherries that Sue requested.  You might wanna' bop on over to Sue's blog to see what she thinks (teaser:  she kinda' really likes her!).

As I mentioned earlier, I will be cutting back my giveaways to only twice a year in anticipation of some possible new adventures happening this year.  I will be having a spring and fall giveaway this year, and the official posting to sign up on will be on March 20th, the actual first day of spring, so keep an eye out for that post in particular.

Very soon I will be posting some very cute vintage Valentines, and even a few new Valentine buttons that I will create just for all of you lovely people out there.  I love my followers, and try to thank you as often as possible with my freebies and sculpture giveaways.  So many times I wish I were wealthy enough to just make sculptures for all of you, but it's a business and I'm trudging along with my dreams, slow to grow income and passions for creating, just like all of you.  I try very hard to support other blog artists by signing up to follow, leaving comments, conversing through email, purchasing those items that make my heart giggle and that I can afford, and being available for questions and helping out with things that I can.

So often I wish I could just meet you all personally.........oh gosh what a fun get together that would be, and I keep hoping and praying the best for all of you and that maybe, just maybe someday, it will happen.

Here's hoping, and God Bless,

Now you know that the next time I'm in Mesa we will get together! I'd love to see your art in person.
This little Cheri girl is too cute for words. Just enough to be in a cute red dress and have blonde hair and Mary Janes but then the cherries behind her back....woohoo!!! I'm sure Sue has to be thrilled.
Soooo glad to see you back to blogging sweet friend!

I just discovered your blog and your work is absolutely incredible. I saw the little girl on Sue's blog. She is so adorable and I love the red dress. I'm going to be a new follower so I can see what you do next.

I saw Miss Cherry on Sue's blog. She is the sweetest little thing I have seen in a long time. You are such a great artist, and a very generous person as well. I love the changes that were added in with the cherries. So much fun.
Bless you, Meri, you are really doing a good thing.
