OHHHHH MY STINKING GOSH!!!! YOU JUST HAVE TO SEE THIS!

Isn't this fabulous? I am just tickled pink....truly.

 A few weeks back a friend from Samoa, she put on her blog that her son was trying to earn money for a fire kindle and he sold a picture (similar) to this one for 25.00.

 Well....I loved the picture so much that I asked him to do one for me.
 He made me a sewing machine.

 Did I tell you that he is only 12. He was one of my scouts when I lived there.

 I have an original. I am sooooooooooooooooooooooo happy.

 Now this isn't all she sent but that will come later because I wanted his picture to be the focal point of this post.

 Now I didn't ask but I am sure if any of you wanted a picture similar? Maybe in a different format, that he could do it. What a fabulous Christmas present this would make...but hey... THIS IS MINE!!!!

Love the artwork. And, I think the artist is very talented and hope to see more of his work. Love it. I think he has a career ahead of him as a graphic artist, if he is interested.

Oh my goodness, Barb. That is amazing! He is very talented. He should really consider continuing to sell those pieces. He could own the Kindle company in no time!!

It is a gorgeous piece of art and would look nice in any sewing room in the land. I hope that he does get to sell a few - they would be a hit I am sure.
