Winner & New Giveaway (Hint: Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la)

CONGRATULATIONS To Kris Wilcox and to Meagan at Mo Pie, Please! You won the giveaway!

Anyone in a Christmas mood?
Meet my friend, Sheryl from Mother's Dream Artworks... a very unique artist. Yes, she draws and paints ... but her most amazing work is created with objects from nature. The giveaway item is made from a piece of driftwood!
(Shery's "Silver Strand": Family Gatherings)
When I asked Sheryl about her business, this is the touching reply:
"I think the name of my studio has a large influence on what I do. I named my business Mother's Dream Artworks in honor of my mom, who started me out as a tot, coloring and shading color book pages. She showed me how to shape figures, and in general infused a love of art and nature and creativity into all I do. We had a dream of owning an art studio/store, where we could teach and learn and sell together. She passed away when I was 17 so for me, this is a continuation of a dream. My family enjoys it when I sit at the kitchen table sculpting or painting or whatever else I may do artistically, as they say it's peaceful to have me there with them while we chat as I work."
He's about 6" tall with details from sculpting clay on driftwood. Layers of paint, vintage leaves and mica snow make for a one-of-a-kind, very jolly collector's ornament!

    my favorite thing about christmas... after watching the kids' excitement, it would have to be watching all of the traditional "christmas" movies.

  3. Sheryl's artwork on her blog is wonderful. She is very talented. I loved all her different Santas. I think my favorite thing about Xmas is the children or grandchildren opening their presents. Next would be my first coffee and breakfast made by my son-in-law.

    My favorite thing about Christmas is getting to see all of my family together, because that doesn't happen too often. :)

  12. ALL of Christmas happens to be my favorite! Two of the many things are: 1) the joy, peace and kindness that is so real it can be felt in the air/stores. Everyone seems to be a little gentler. 2) the LIGHTS! I love seeing the lights and remembering that Jesus Christ is indeed the 'light of the world'!
