So I went on an adventure.. an adventure to meet new people, new artists, ya know, to shake things up a bit (of course, WHY should things be STABLE and STATUS QUO in my life???).. In any event, on this journey I met a lot of sistahs… wonderful women who decided to take a risk and participate in my contest.. I appreciate all your effort. Sharon Gregory from www.funkyfairyspapercrafts.com has won my contest as I mentioned in a previous entry and her images have come to life in RUBBAH! Upon getting to know Sharon, I learned about a tragic event that occurred in her life.. a very sad time and I asked her if I could share with all of you. She wanted to have her story “outted” for lack of a better word and here it is written by Sharon
“I dedicate these designs to my son Daniel.
Daniel was diagnosed with a rare cancer(ewings sarcoma) in July 2006 when he was just 14 years old.During treatment the cancer managed to spread around Daniels body,and eventually to his brain. Sadly on 16th February 2007 Daniel lost his brave battle and peacefully slipped away,aged just 15 years xxx
Daniel loved to draw,loved to doodle….so its quite fitting that these designs be dedicated to his memory.
I hope you all enjoy using the ‘Doodle For Daniel’ Collection.”
So that is shazzy’s story (I AM ALLOWED TO CALL HER DAT N’K?? — SHE “LETTED” me)
Isn’t it amazing how everyone has a story, how there IS such a thing as FATE and REASON for meeting? I totally feel a connection and am THRILLED to have “met” Sharon.
A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the cancer foundation of Sharon’s choice
Mwah to da sistahs ACROSS DA POND and everywhere else!
MWAH to Daniel, the inspiration behind these designs.
