My Hippie days- art, fun and winning something here!
I just completed a quilt (full size) about the 60's and I did a large hippie girl, complete with a burning bra, a guitar and words plus loads of flowers and peace signs. I will show it once it is quilted and embellished-it'll be even better then. I have piles of jewelry with peace signs to sew on and the best beaded earrling to go inside the fabric ones on her ears. My daughter saw it today and put dibs on it. She said it is the coolest thing I have done! haha.
I did posters to make money in those days and behind me is a poster I did for someone. I made good money doing posters for the fraternity guys that wanted full size posters of girls in bikini's. I also sold oil paintings to my Father's friends but I didn't make as much money doing that.
This is a photo of a photo so it probably isn't very good-Mark and I lived in this little apartment and this was me before I went to work-I remember watching the news about the Manson family....
My brother took this photo of me when I worked at the Bon Marche. I bought those bell bottoms and NO one here wore them yet and everyone thought I was nuts-I loved it
So I have four nice prizes that I will give away before I leave for Wyoming on the 15th. I will choose from people who leave comments in the next 10 days. You could win something cool.
