An Exchange

My daughter on the left of the portrait, took the photo, now hanging in our entryway :)You can see another photo on the artist's blog post, here.

I just love my custom portrait of the girls done by Heather at Audreyeclectic.
I've never had a custom portrait done, & this turned out just great!
She does the sweetest folk art with an old timey feel~ Do check out her shop, if you haven't already~ I'm currently loving the Alice in Wonderland teapot too :)

We exchanged a portrait for a laptop bag.

I'd never really made a bag specifically for a laptop, so it was a new challenge for me.
I hear she likes it ;)
Thanks Heather!!

that's my kind of swap! I have an artist friend who does the most amazing work and would love to commission her to do a portrait of the mister and me sometime. Swapping is a great idea!

Andrea, this is awesome! You are both very gifted, and I'm glad that you've been able to have such a serendipitous trade. Well done to you both.

I am sure that she will love it - it is a beautiful bag! The picture is so sweet, too.
