Barb Kilby has added some card designs to her Etsy shop — www.sweetb.etsy.com — including this little papergirl delivering the news, and more will be coming. If I had an iota of this woman’s creativity and blythe spirit….*sigh*….but that would be coveting, wouldn’t it?
Years ago, at a church retreat, Barb told me she had just used her lawn mower to mow a circuitous path through her overgrown back yard for her youngest little daughter to explore–and then laughed and said, “really, the things I think are fun–I think my mind is stuck at about age seven!”
You will see in her art little details that a seven-year-olds see and delight in and that adults have given up seeing as they pursue the adult world. That’s one thing that makes Barb’s art so special, I think. Enjoy!
It has been a joy to help her put some of her lovely work up for others to view and purchase. Computers aren’t her thing, just as ever-bubbling creativity isn’t my thing.
