Miracle to miracle is how I have been living.
Just back from Arizona, I am happy to report
my mom is recovering nicely from surgery
and is in remission…resembling a pixie-hot Mia Farrow!
So so so grateful.
For years, it was services I sold
(academic tutoring, consulting, writing)
so I’m still virginal as to selling goods…
let alone peddling on this blog.
I’d love to share some affordable art I have been
happily selling on and offline.
For a recent art show in downtown Barrington
(So fun! Thanks for having me, Katie),
along with abstracts on canvas, I created
collages on paper and necklaces inspired
by the BRCA journey of my mom,
me, and my sister Jo.
The sterling chains were a hit and are now in the shop.
To celebrate the launch, a Giveaway! I’m giving away a collage and a necklace. 2 winners will be announced Monday, Nov. 18th. Both items will be custom, one of a kind, created especially for you according to your preferences. Open to everyone on planet earth…international? YES. For chances to win, simply visit my shop and leave a comment at the end of this post saying you did. For 5 bonus entries, simply like Hello Lovely on Facebook and let me know in a comment you did. That’s 6 chances!
Sterling Soul Chains
You can read about the concept
and inspiration for the collages in the shop.
I used quality materials for these
feminine, soulful mixed media collages.
Fine Fabriano Mediovalis Italian paper,
vintage lace from Paris, silk, linen,
cashmere, and vintage pointe shoe satin.
You may notice my signature safety pins, ‘X’s, and torn text.
Freelance writing schtuff:
I’m also expanding my writing services.
If you or your business should require
a blogger, ghostblogger, editor,
speech writer, article writer, author,
or creative dynamo wired for words,
please do email me.
Back to the personal:
I feel as though I have finally found a pocket of
sweet peace in which to begin writing about
my BRCA journey and share chapters
which have chilled and widened my soul.
Creating art pieces was a baby step,
yet this step alone feels like a small miracle.
Thanks for listening and for
entering the giveaway!
Peace to you right where you are.
