You gotta LOVE this face!

XOXO --- Upon removing her from the box, this was my first response!

This is a "Sea Beezle" created by the very talented Cheryl Prater. I was lucky enough to have Cheryl as my swap partner in the "Under the Sea" swap sponsored by Zan Asha. I just love the whimsy in all of Cheryl's pieces.

For this swap each artist was to create an under the sea inspired piece. As my part of the swap this is what I created for Cheryl.

***great minds do think alike!....not knowing what either was making, we both did mermaids and they are both almost the same size!***

Thanks Cheryl!!! My Sea Beezle is a treasure that I'll enjoy every day as she watches me in the studio!

I love seeing something I made go out into the real world. And I loved the wonderful Skull Queen. So great to have something that Marie made - are we in-laws now?

This was my first swap and I am itching to do more. Kudos to Zan for organizing such a fun exchange. Hip Hip Hurrah!

Zan Asha said...

Hehee, so cute, both of your stuff!

Haha, so if you're now in laws, Cheryl, does this mean I officiated it--like sort of an "art minister?" Hmmm...wonderful stuff! :)
