Aren't you lucky! I've been following Melody for sometime now, even taken her Soul Restoration. She is so motivating and so wise. I'd love to meet her in person and have the opportunity to paint with her. Have fun!


Absolutely Love your art Michelle. I've signed up to get your blog regularly and am looking forward to keeping up!

Well, i was already almost done with my comment on what i do during my spare time and such when suddenly everything got deleted!:( Anyway, Hello, hehe. Since I play soccer and go to school, my spare time is not so much but i enjoy it alot. first off, you are such an inspirational person. I look at your blogs and pictures and eveytime i see something different but it makes me smile just the same. i wish my mom was crafty. Anyway, during my free time, I take "nature walks" and get things like acorns, leaves and other instruments to make crafty things. i also paint random things and i believe so far i have like 7 or 8 acrilic paintings. They're mostly hanging around my house. i sold 3 of my favorite ones though. My next one is a frog:) which i plan on starting and finishing this week. Also, i posted on my FB both of these links (http://allendesigns.typepad.com/blog/ and www.closetomyart.com) so that your talent speads! i hope i win!!!
