Chicken Wire In My Head And My Daughter The Artist

Lately I've been obsessed with chicken wire...as you might have already noticed my blog's new background...

This is something I worked on yesterday.

Easiest thing to make....I just got an old frame I had laying around and stapled some chicken wire to the back.

Oh but it doesn't stop here...There is more...But you'll have to come back again to see what else I've been working on. :-)

**********

But before you go, I would like to share with you one more thing....

Yesterday evening we attended an art exhibit. It was to celebrate the many talented young artists from our daughter's school district....

And our daughter's tribute to Marilyn was one of the pieces selected to be displayed...We are so proud of her. I'm not sure is you can tell, but this piece was made entirely out of little pieces of pages she cut out of magazines. Anyway, as a proud mama I just had to share this with you. :-)

**********

Thank you for stopping by for a visit today.

Remember to come back and see what else I'm working on.

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Blessings.

Hugs and Kisses,

I love your chicken wire frame! I've been toying with the idea of adding chicken wire to the glass on my kitchen cabinets, but I haven't completely convinced myself to do it yet.
Your daughter's artwork is beautiful! Really? Little pieces of magazine? That's amazing! I guess she's as talented as her mama!

Hello, dear Ana,
The chicken wire frame is a fabulous idea. Yours looks so sweet with the vintage cards and sitting by the lovely orchid. Congratulations to your daughter! I am so proud of her and love her collage of Marilyn! She did a fantastic job. She gets her creative talents from her mom! You both look so much alike, too, both beautiful. Have the happiest of weekends, my friend! Vicki

Ana, I adore your chicken wire picture frame! I have some chicken wire and I think I might have to find a frame so I can make that! Did you make the paper star as well? If so I want to know how to make that, it is so wonderful and how about the "C" in the little glass frame, that is too cute! Am I too nosy? Your daughter is an excellent artist!!! I am so impressed with your lovely girl.
Thank you so much for the beautiful email birthday card, you are such a precious girl. I am so thankful that God allowed our paths to cross. I love this blogging world, I was so lonely before I started up my blog, it has truly opened up a whole new world to me. And you are the sweetest. Big hugs, Cindy S
