Getting Ready for Juried Art Show, Playing Around With Felting, & You've Got to Hear Susan Boyle

The next couple of days are going to be busy ones for me. The local art gallery is getting ready for it's once a year juried art show. I have volunteered to help out on the day the judges select pieces to be in the show. Nothing like putting your ego on the chopping block, as I will be taking several of my own pieces in on Saturday to go through that selection process on Sunday. Friday I will be running around looking for the right length of hanging bars and picture frames and making final decisions of my own as to which of my pieces to enter. Please keep your fingers crossed for me. Just getting in is a big deal in my book! Oh that piece up there? Just me playing around last night on my felting machine. Letting off tension. Nothing to write home about. I don't have time to figure out how to upload a video right now, but if you haven't met Susan Boyle yet, believe me you want to. My friend, Judy at her blog called Red Velvet the video on her post from yesterday. It is linked and says "go HERE"...I strongly encourge you to go to her blog and see "go HERE" to watch the video it takes you to. Just use the URL above/click on the blue words. You will not be disappointed. Come back here and tell me what you think. There are more Susan Boyle videos on UTube as well. Enjoy today!


  1. HOpe you get into that Show. Fingers & toes crossed. :)
    I saw that Video. It brought tears to my eyes it was so good. and I saw her on GMA this morning. GOOD MORNING AMERICA. What a talent.

  2. Yes,she's fantastic isn't she?
    If you scroll down my blog list, you will see a photo of her and a link to u tube,Maddie posted about her earlier in the week.Her blog is called the world from my window.

  3. Oh Lynn, I am going to be focusing on you getting into that gallery show. This is so exciting...I am thinking positive thoughts and willing the judges to 'choose Lynn, choose Lynn'! If it is the right door, it will open very wide for you, I can promise you that!

    I completely agree about Susan Boyle! What an amazing voice...and amazing teacher to us all! The hardest part is the pressure must be incredible for her to get that album made! I ADORE this story!

  10. This is the 4th time for the day someone is telling me about Susan Boyle/sharing her link. She has really taken the world by storm.

  11. I cried, it was very moving and so special...thank you for sharing this. I think we do judge a book by it's cover so much of the time. This is a good message.
