Show me your Frida!

I've had the good fortune of meeting the nicest folks online! One of my favorite places for chatting, sharing ideas, and swapping ATCs is Tam's ning site (http://willowing.ning.com/). Recently, we swapped ATCs with the theme, "Show me Your Frida!" Yes, you guessed it - Frida Kahlo!

I never really read much about Frida before I became interested in her because of this swap. She was one amazing lady. I was most impressed by how she continued to create her art despite the fact that she was in constant pain. What an inspiration!

Judging by the large number of friends she and her famous artist hubbie had, I'm sure, on occasion, especially in her early years, Frida was known to let her hair down...

What an interesting idea. One of my favorite Frida quotes is something like "I drink to drown my sorrows, but the damn things have learned how to swim!"

Great job, and thanks for your kind words on my blog.
