I make things all the time, but normally nothing good enough to show here. But I am proud of this simple little purse - I love the fabric but couldn't figure out what to do with it. So TADA I did this!

Don't sell yourself short! These are very good. I love how you pay attention to detail. Don't you dare stop taking pictures or I won't speak to you again... which, considering you don't know me, wouldn't be that hard. Oh, well. Just don't stop taking pictures because it would be a very bad thing for you to do. How 'bout that?
Fantastic! Just so you know, I am a better writer than I am a craftster, even though I love doing both, so I am more critical of writing than I can really be of art... My "professional" opinion? Other than a few editing mistakes, which don't matter when there are people out there like me who love to edit, this is great writing. I wanted to pick a favorite part to tell you what really stood out for me, but it was hard to just choose one!
So here are a couple of "classic" lines that I adore: "... convinced myself that I was nothing more than a ghost, invisible but still thinking" (I think that I really like that part because it is something you can completely relate to, except you put into words what normally just remains an unformed description of this feeling in most people's heads.) The other line that is quite amazing is: "The sky is yellow and gray like a bruise..." You manage to convey so much imagery in those 9 words, with both painting a picture with your words and sticking in a double entendre concerning the character. Most of all, I like how it doesn't taper off at the end; that you just let it end with that. I think that really makes it more interesting.
Sorry I rambled on so much, but I always appreciate evaluations of my work, so I thought I would do the same. Keep up the good work, though- I would love to read more of what you have written.
I really like all three, and I especially like how you managed to make three very unique pieces of art! They are so different, yet so good.
As a sidenote... what exactly did the boy mean when he said this? Was it a breakup line or...? Sorry, I am a little nosy, but I love how you included it and just want to know what he was really saying.
You're very talented!! My mom and I are always talking about how much we love artwork that we feel like we could just walk right into the picture, or that we wish at a particular moment that we could be where that picture is. I have to say- I want to walk straight into that second picture, it is so amazing and teasing and foreboding all at the same time.
