She is an AMAZING artist and I was inspired by this!
I had joined a Facebook Group called Art Abandonment awhile back and when I saw this article I knew that I was going to give NYC back those pennies. Now above is my first try at mini painting on a penny. It's not a masterpiece but I think it's cute none the less. I have 4 more in the works for now and will be posting them when they are finished. I think tomorrow I will go and abandon my penny in Manhattan. Haven't decided where yet and then I am going to watch to see if anybody picks it up. Maybe they will keep it, maybe they will spend it but I'm pretty sure they won't throw it away. If they toss it back to the ground, maybe someone else will pick it up....who knows where the penny will go....I may never know...but that's ok.

We can’t get what we want by having a fantasy about it. We have to be willing to do something to make it happen.
Maybe you haven’t been willing to get up an hour earlier to go to the gym for a fit body, or maybe you would rather be liked then upset your colleagues with a new idea.
What haven’t you been willing to do to make your dreams come true? Whatever the answer is, it’s the missing link! This answer is the only thing missing in turning your dreams into a reality!
THAT'S IT!!!! And all of a sudden I had a list.....a list of all the things I am not doing....it was so much easier to make a list of things I wasn't doing than the things I should be doing!! I have always been a rebel to authority...it's all about my dad...LOL trust me I know this...doesn't change the way I think though. If you TELL ME I should be doing something I am likely to do the opposite just because I don't like being told what to do....even if it's detrimental to me. I've gotten much better thru the years...hence my success in many areas of my life but it still is there...lurking, waiting for someone to push that button. So now I have a list....a list of things to check off one step at a time... (Yes Lynn(my sister the list maker), a list...LOL) So from now on I will be looking at things with a different perspective....what am I NOT doing and THAT may just get me to where I want to be....

There are many phrases about pennies. I would call my friend Jen a PENNY PINCHER. LOL She is pretty thrifty. And what about the pharse "A bad penny always comes back." Is there really a BAD PENNY?? I don't think so...but who knows. I think I am going to gather all the pennies and coins I find on the ground and put them in a jar and see how much I can collect. Maybe it will pay for a nice vacation one day! Because you know...they cost a PRETTY PENNY! Or is that just being PENNY WISE and a pound foolish? Anyway you look at it, a PENNY SAVED is a penny earned... I am on a quest now to find change... Just giving you my 2 cents....

The project was to work with clay. I had bought the air dry clay...oh...probably 8 months ago, LOL, to play around with it and I never did. I kinda like playing with it. Maybe I will try some more things with it. I like using the wire with it too. When this is dried I will paint it and then it will say "Grow Where you are Planted" on the 3 hearts. That is my way of saying make the best of where you are at now. Explore, dream discover....
