A Live Maxine in Person!

Yesterday I posted some sayings that I had come up with about princess kissing frogs to go with some of Christy Croll's new stamps. That was before I had seen them so my mental visual was entirely different from actual reality... NOT A MATCH!   I absolutely LOVE what she did, PRECIOUS! PRECIOUS! But my words would probably go better with Maxine's daughter! You know, the old lady cartoon character Maxine that has something sarcastic to say about everything.  (click on her name if you don't know who I'm talking about)

Well, after going out and buying $50 worth of books to learn how to draw...because I want to get what is in my brain out on paper!!! an artist friend of mine called. We haven't talked in about a year so this was kinda "out of nowhere". (like there is such a thing when God is involved with every detail of my life?!) She is an INCREDIBLE artist! Her job, all her life, has been set design, and creation, for plays and amazing wall  murals. VERY HARD WORK! She is now in her 60s (70s???) and doesn't need to be climbing scaffolding and on her knees painting anymore.....soooooo, I think I finally convinced her she needs to give digital stamp making a go! I gave her my list of words from yesterday and hopefully I'll see some output soon! We may have a new digital source soon ladies!!!  She is totally clueless about the PC world so it looks like I might be doing that end of it for her, at least to get her started.

The really fun part is that she is the living, breathing, true life form of Maxine!  There is NO TELLING what we might see! Talk about ATTITUDE!

    I know Carisa! I talked to her tonight and she was working on the 5th drawing! Its so funny because she took my list of sayings and "saw" something entirely different in her brain! I can't wait to see what she has done! While we were talking she was drawing the back of a goth girl with tatoos and a tutu, on point, looking into a full length mirror. I THINK she did that to go with "Do you have this in black?" And for "I don't do cute" she did a pot bellied rabbit! ??? This should be interesting!
