Thanks to the generosity of so many people, my win for this week is that I reached my goal to become a VIDA Gold Status Designer by my one-year anniversary as a VIDA designer!!! This means I have sold my first 50 pieces from my Collection!!! WOW!!! I am beyond excited!!!

CHICKADEE

BIRD (CHICKADEE) NF.jpgMeet my cute, little chickadee that feeds at my feeder daily! It is now available on several awesome products in both my Fine Art America and Pixels online stores.

This morning when I opened the living room blinds, I caught sight of it at the feeder eating breakfast. As quietly and carefully as I attempted to unlock and open the front door to steal a picture, by the time I got it open, the little cutie had flown away. But it’ll be back! This is one of several pictures it let me snap yesterday. 🙂

And below are just a couple of the beautiful products available in my stores, a duvet cover and a weekender tote bag.

The watermarks “Nature’s Finest by Maxine Billings” and “Fine Art America” will not appear on products ordered.

As always, this is from my heart to yours !

MY CURATED VIDA COLLECTION

VIDA SHEER WRAP (EVERLASTING LOVE) VIDA MODEL.jpgHello, wearable art lovers! WOW, am I excited!!! VIDA and I have completed my curated VIDA collection! What this means is that since I have moved up from Slate status to Steel, I had the awesome privilege and pleasure of selecting one item from my collection to collaborate with them on to showcase a beautiful, lifestyle photography model wearing it.

The curated item that I selected is my “Everlasting Love” Sheer Wrap. The model attired in it (picture above in this post) is featured on:

  • my personal online curated collection page, and
  • VIDA’s main SHOP section page (just scroll down until you see this model wearing the wrap–underneath her picture, it will say EVERLASTING LOVE Sheer Wrap)

My inspiration for this piece was a big, beautiful, crystal clear, floating candle holder centerpiece at my brother and his wife’s wedding reception last year. You can view the full picture I took of it by clicking on the arrows (< or >) beside the wrap.

Thank you again so much to all of you who helped to make this accomplishment possible with your purchases from my collection!!! The third and final status is Gold, and I am already more than halfway there!!! 🙂

Again, thank you all so much from the depths of my heart–from my heart ❤ to yours ❤ !

Maxine 🙂
