My $10 Drawing

Have you ever seen the $10 drawings blog? The blog is written by Alicia Lynn Carrier who is an artist that will draw anything you ask for onto a 5x7" piece of brown paper bag for just $10. She does this in order to be able to draw every day. I've wanted a drawing for a while. She's done some beautiful drawings ... a bee, a bird, mermaids, bugs, an octopus, a cuckoo clock, a typewriter ... the list goes on and on.

But, what could I ask for?

I thought about it for months but could never come up with anything I thought was worthy. Then, my New Years hobby became the answer. A belly dancer. I ordered the drawing and completely forgot about it. Today, I received an envelope and couldn't imagine what it could possibly and when I opened it, there she was ...

I love her! Go take a peek at Alicia's blog. I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Now, where can I put my belly dancer?


  1. What a talent. And belly dancing - I would love to do that but I have way too much belly!!

  2. Very nice! How fun to have a one of a kind, personalized piece of art.

  3. special!

    Warm blessings,

  4. I just love the red and white,and your home is beautiful....Kathy

  5. She's great! I love surprises like that - it's like finding money in an old purse, or a favorite necklace at the back of a dresser drawer.


    p.s. I was so happy to see you'd stopped by my blog; I think it's not the snow that was slowing you down, but a weather widget I'd just added. (It seemed to slow things down for me after it was up, so I removed it.) I hope you'll come visit again, and if you do, let me know if it loads faster now.
