She Cheered with Joy!

Remember my young apprentice, Keshet? Well, it was birthday time again and her mum came back to me for another card. Last year Keshet requested a card with lots of rainbows, doughnuts and treats on it. This year mum told me that she is into slime (mum's hope for next year is that she no longer into slime!). She has been going to a sewing class and was getting a sewing machine for her birthday (lucky girl!). She enjoys going to the Zionist youth movement NOAM (an acronym for No'ar Masorti, Masorti Youth) and she still loves doughnuts. Oh, and she plays the recorder as well and is going to try the piano next year.
I have shown Keshet wearing her green NOAM movement shirt on the card. She has some tubs of her homemade slime - I-Slime - in her hands and is surrounded by her favourite doughnuts, her new sewing machine and some music notes to represent her interest in music. Mum suggested turquoise as the background colour.
It seems that once again Keshet was delighted with her birthday card. Mum told me that "She cheered with joy when she opened the card!". How lovely is that? She has just moved into her own bedroom and has decided to use it as a door sign for her room. I even received a picture of it already on the door!

It's marvelous that your art is such an integral part of her childhood. I love the card as a door sign too. I remember when I got my own room as a child - big stuff!

What a fantastic door sign; you could diversify and go into room plaque production! I was wondering how you were going to represent slime! How lovely that she was so pleased with her card. xx

Another beautiful creation Lisa. Have you ever thought of making framed pictures? Perhaps family ones? Maybe something worth looking into? x

Your cards are such wonderful works of art, and so personalized, too! I can only imagine that these cards are tucked away to be enjoyed again later.

I enjoyed your post at 'My Corner of the World' this week!

Hi Lisa, what a sense of satisfaction you must get when you hear how much people enjoy your cards! And those doughnuts do look good enough to eat.
