One Inspiring Lady & come over to my Paint Table


Oh this heat !!!!

THIS INSPIRING LADY 
Before I go rattling on about my painted things.
On Friday I had a wonderful surprise call from Colleen.... who  recalls the days of Colleen's Cottage in Croydon ????

I used to order first cow shapes when I could never find any when doing the markets in Canberra ...
& I bought many shapes & books there after 

Colleen & I became friends.
***
Colleen rang to tell me much exciting news, she was through her treatment & had decided to set up a 
Cancer  Support Group in Finley where she now resides...

That successfully off the ground she decides the group needs to generate an income & is now embarking on a
 hand made & hand grown shop co op  in Finley  ... 
she is gathering committee people 
& looking for funding....
 I believe this will go to Crowd Funding also....
An article in the Southern Riverina Newspaper also happened..
Create'n'Grow
___________
I have been collecting & painting a large box of buttons as a donation & hoping this will bring in some much needed funds too. 
More importantly she has embraced this connection and given many in the area a place to meet & a place to listen to speakers .

I am in awe of the inspiration and excitement of Colleen 
Well done Mrs Bender  !!!
***
I cannot give back in that big way but as I spoke to Colleen taking down words as she spoke & I was also drawing a little brooch thing to do for the group....
Need to clean the drawing up yet ....

Now come over to my paint table
From my paint table.....
Some modified, resized all arrived in & are now painted !!!
Just ones of each design ..or maybe 2 in different colours.
Scattered on the spray trays are the larger sized buttons & they are 4cm 0r maybe 4.5cm
Kitty, Bear & side Bear & that very drunk looking reindeer ( love his quirky look )

I am wondering now where is the painted Bunny Rabbit Buttons are???
Better check my supply box 
I do have more of the kitty & bunny brooches in ....
So much for only doing a few at a time...
I decided I'd do a bigger batch, so more are coming in soon


These dogs are still on the bus...doing one of those city free laps...taking in the sights of whatever city they are in....Paris ? Rome ? London...or Melbourne....

Bunny Love has arrived in with the larger version... for me to experiment with...
  And the English brown bunny facing each other...
