1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / I need help...keepsake/positive affirmations project...ideas? on: February 19, 2009 12:04:32 PM
So, I'm not sure if this would be the right topic to plead for some help...

My art teacher (who was one of my favorite teachers ever) has recently been having some health problems.  She will be undergoing surgery on Monday that will, best case, leave her a quadrapalegic, worst case, will be cancer and she will have only months to live.  She is one of the biggest personalities I have ever known, the epitomy of "artsy fartsy art teacher"  She has touched so many lives.  and now I'm running on...

I only have a few days to put something together for her.  I have been contacting the former students that I remember.  ( I graduated in 1994...but she and I have stayed in touch and I have been helping her with a community art project.)  I'm collecting notes and art pieces as well as adding my own positive affirmations.  I would like to put it together in a book, box, journal, shrine; something cool for her to take to her surgery and have through her recovery.  Since she's an art teacher I want something cool and unique...but I only have a little time.

Any thoughts?  Help! 

Thanks in advance!

Wow, those are really nice.  You did great work!

My only thought (and this might just be my clumsy-ness) would be that the fine fringe on their "manes" and tails might break easily being so fine. 

Other than that thought, I love them! 

Good luck!

I just have to drop in and say that I saw this amazing costume in person at the Con last weekend and it was gorgeous in person!!! (of course so was the model!)

You did an amazing job!

(in case you remember...I have red and black hair and was trying on a corset, wearing an army green dress....and my hubby says you bought one of our mini canvases to go with your mini Haminal....hope you had a great Con!)
