Today my entry is just a "quickie" :) I started with a little altered box/shadow box for a friend of mine. She´s a very busy traveller, every year living in another country, why she got the nickname "INT DIVA" (International Diva). Currently she´s living in Muscat/Oman, and that will be my theme for the inside of the box.
The box is very very small, I use an old candy tin box and there is not much room in it.
I think I will finish it until monday and will post some more pictures of the end-result then.
My name is Bettina and I´m a 37 year old woman who lives with her beloved husband and a bunch of beloved animals in a 400 year old farmhouse in Germany/Bavaria. I LOVE my family, art, animals, nature and books and I´m a passionate Kitsch-Collector (Specially Vintage Puppets, Robots and Space Age toys)and Pee-wee Herman enthusiast. Since 2005 I´m suffering of a massive case of UF (Urticaria Factitia)and chronic reccurring angioedema what means that my skin is oversensitive to pressure, warmth and other simple daily physical impacts, what makes my life a bit more difficult than for others. Being creative helps me a lot to deal with that. My art is all selftaught, I´m not a professional - even more I apprechiate your visits and comments on my blog.
Nice to meet you, I hope you enjoy :)

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." > Elisabeth Kübler Ross
