A Book for Invalid Cyndi

I haven't been blogging lately due to health issues...well, I haven't been doing much of anything lately due to health issues! I have been involved in a couple of recent projects and have been working on some of my own art tho - and I thought I'd share a little of it here with you.

A good friend of mine, Cyndi, fell and broke her arm a few months ago. Several of us who know and love Cyndi decided to get together and make a book for her - the results of which turned out very well. It was a great project to be involved with - I had the chance to work with some really terrific artists. I have asked their permission to post their artwork on my blog and I'm honored they all trust me to share their talent with you. The book ended up being around 30 pages - so I will post the basics here, along with a link to where you can see the book in its entirety.

The artists involved in this project were (in alphabetical order) Linda Burke, Tami Davis, Francine Domschine-Hill, Jenna Kay Francis, Norma Heller & Debra McWilliam. I also contributed (but you know where to find me!) and so did my daughter, Princess Becca.

The guidelines for this RAK were simple: Make a page (or pages) about Cyndi's injury. Cyndi had seriously injured her wrist when falling off a horse - requiring emergency surgery, all sorts of hardware and lots of physical therapy and recovery time.

I collected the pages and bound them into a book. The pages created by these artists are as varied as the personalities involved - but each one has something in common - every single page is delicious! Take a look at the work that went into Cyndi's book.

**Unfortunately, Debra does not have a blog or website. She is an extremely talented artist and the page she created is WONDERFUL! It's hard to see in this picture, but the arm Debra used is an arm from a Barbie - painted white - and adhered to the page. The silver pieces at the wrist represent the hardware Cyndi had on her wrist. Debra's page is so totally creative and was pure joy to incorporate into the book - without it, the book definitely would not have been the same! If you would like to contact Debra, please post a comment to this entry and the message will be immediately forwarded to her.

It's important to note that this is NOT the entire book! To see the pages I didn't include here, please follow this link. For some reason the book uploaded backwards - to begin viewing it from the front, please start on the picture labeled "Cover by Tami". The additional pages are worth looking at!

I want to send a sincere THANK YOU to all the artists who contributed to this book and allowed me to post their work on my blog. You are extremely talented and made this a fun and memorable experience. Thank you for trusting me with your hard work - I really hope each of you are happy with the end result. I'm sure your hard work will speed Cyndi's recovery - if for no other reason than to stop the teasing!

I have several other things to post and will be adding them as I can over the next few days - so be sure to check back often!
