Hello my red bubble friends

Hello my red bubble friends….I received a couple of emails asking where I went… I have been dealing with the Kalamazoo River Oil Spill for the the last 3 months… the river runs past my home and I have been in a battle… with the oil company.I am still doing my photography but have been focused on the oil spill…….. will return some day but am still focused on the spill.Miss you all… keep creating… Michelle

Thanks Art 4 Charity

I appreciate the feature of two of my pieces. I for Haiti and 1 for fellow bubbler Trevor Irwin. I believe that all artist should donate to a charity of their choice and feel that it is a small step to hopefully make the world a better place. Thank you !

Thanks for the Feature

Thanks for the feature of A Heart for Haiti. I am going to do a series and donate all proceeds to the Red Cross. I challenge you to do the same. I also have done a series for Trevor Philadelphia charity. Many of us are so blessed and have so much and these people have so little. Please take a moment and think about what your art is about and why you do it. I believe that it just takes one person doing one thing to make a big change.

Thanks to Art 4 Charity Feature

woo hoo – You guys made my day and week. I appreciate that you featured Cheeta Pride – It made my little heart go pitter patter when I saw that it had been featured – THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU

Thank you to my fellow Red Bubblers

This week has been a heck of a week – my mother who is 83 had a stoke then a heart attack and then another stroke…
I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who sent me positive thoughts and prayers and emails… I still will not be able to be on much as now she will start a difficult rehabilitation ahead. But you will never know how much it meant to me to get your prayers and positive thoughts… Thank you Thank you Thank you !!!
