Lyrics To Go

 This piece was so much fun to put together. I think any fan of hip-hop music would appreciate it.

It was the first piece I’d sold and I was ecstatic to have my first paying customer- but it was also grueling work knowing that every letter had to be placed just right to be able to reproduce the original done in 2008.

A mix tape with each of the songs represented here is all I need.

This mirror hangs in our living room- someone said it reminded them of the one in Snow White. Thanks to them, every time I look at it, Snoop Dogg’s “Lodi Dodi” runs through my head- over and over and over and over again.

Pennies From Heaven



 I love the innocence of children and their ability to find happiness in the simplest of things. Knowing that sadly, this changes once early childhood years are over, I wish I could bottle it up and save it forever. My son gets so excited whenever he finds a penny on the ground- it’s a contagious type of excitement and happiness. Kids are wonderful that way. They can instantly bring you up to their level of appreciation of the most basic things- things we take for granted as adults. I wanted to do something special with some of the pennies he’s found over the past few months, so I decided to incorporate them into a homemade bench we had in our backyard where he likes to play. I covered 2 slabs of wood (held together by 4 screws) with about $10 worth of pennies (some he had found, but most from the bank) and poured a resin coating on them. After 3 days, it was waterproof and ready (he managed to make his mark by sticking a penny on top of the resin while everything was still settling). Why “Lucky”? Because they are lucky pennies, after all; but also cause it’s sort of a tribute to my little reminder of what happiness is.

It rains
Pennies from heaven
Don’t you know
Each cloud contains
Pennies from heaven

You’ll find your fortune fallin’
All over town
Be sure that your umbrella
Is upside down

Trade them for a package of
Sunshine and flowers
If you want the things you love
You must have showers
So when you hear it thunder
Don’t run under a tree
There’ll be pennies from heaven
For you and me

Dear Game of Thrones Fans,

“Any man who must say, I am the king, is no true king.”

My best amiga asked if I’d work on a painting based on the series for her brother who’s a huge fan. I want to compile some of the best quotes from different characters & thought some input from you would be fun. What are some of your favorite lines?
