HAHAHA Thanks Nancy! We thought the toes were adorable too!

I hated to post this with all of the hullabaloo going on, but sure didn't want to waste the work I'd done on the article.

No, it's good that you did. All the angry threads are consuming me.

(If you want an interesting read to take your mind away for a few minutes, go read Doris' book. I got the whole thing into the computer even though it will only be availabe for viewing for another day.)

Never seen a coleus I didn't like.
Dear Coleus Mama,
You are so beautiful. I love you and I promise to give you a good and loving home. I love your "staff" also (LOL!), especially the main creators Janet and Connie, but there were a bunch of other great helpers (Janet's family) during the process also - I want to thank them all for making you so stunning.

When you arrive in your new home country in a few weeks, you will be able to live indoors during winter, and during summer you will have your very own great looking, big pot to dance and have fun in. I will plant my most good-looking coleus around you and take care of all your needs.

I hope you are coming soon. I'm eagerly waiting for you. Warm Welcome!

Your Coleus mama mama
Alice

Oh Alice... Your message brings tears to my eyes.

I just got off the phone with Connie and am fixin' to head that way. Hopefully we can get her finished today. If so, I will still have to get her boxed up.. Haven't figured out the "logistics" on that (making her so she doesn't cost a fortune to ship) but hope to work on that today.

I know she will have an awesome home there in Sweden. I can tell you now that she's reeeeally looking forward to getting out of this Texas heat. Sure wish I could hand deliver her! HAHAHAHA

I will keep everyone posted about this sculpture on my Phanfare site. I have a lot of emails from folks here. If you want to be kept up with, please send me your email address. I'm collecting them into a special folder for folks that want to be "kept in the loop" on the Artisan's Nook, amongst my other cubits too.

I've enjoyed showing you how Connie and I work to create the sculptures. Having Cammie and Hillary there to help with the camera has been such a tremendous bonus this time around. We think they have done an awesome job. This is the first time either of them have really watched one of our sculptures bein created. I know they've both enjoyed it as much as we have. I'm sure they feel like "film directors" sometimes. HAHAHA We've really enjoyed having everyone look over our shoulders. :-)

Many hugs and best wishes to everyone,
Janet
