meet and greet-sponsor love-artsy matilda

Every so often you may see a new sponsor pop up over there on the right. 
I do offer a few slots but I am discriminate.  I only sell those spots to wonderful people (email me!).  They have to BE awesome and DO awesome.  Which is why Artsy Matilda fits right in.  She is one of THE most darling people I have met in a long, while. She is sweet and bubbly and happy!
Here's a little about Cheri:
Cheri has spent her entire life in performing and visual arts.  After 38 years of dancing from L.A. to Broadway, Cheri and her husband moved to the mountains in Northwestern NC and found a calmer, slower paced life.  Cheri began her mixed media mosaic art in earnest after meeting Chrissie Grace and has continued along that vein since 2005.  Not being able to stick to only one avenue, Cheri is also a fabric and paper enthusiast.  Her sewing skills from all those years in costumes and pointe shoe ribbons have taken a new turn into fabric inspiration and art journal making, ipod, ipad, computer, notebook and kindle covers, bags and purses.  Among the newer items are hand woven purses and journal covers, as well as “glass quilts”, which are made from vintage windows, glass and quilt designs.  Having always been an avid writer, Artsymatilda is the way Cheri records her journey while feeding her soul. 
Cheri was sweet enough to send me THE sweetest journal ever...each page was made with ME in mind.  I can only imagine the hours and hours and hours she pours into them. 
I couldn't believe the page after page of details.  I literally felt loved after looking through it. :)
You can just tell that she loves what she does, that she is an amazing artist that pours themselves into their work. 
Here is the darling one she made for one of you! :) I promise, with all the thought, love and care that went into this, that I have NO doubt that it will end up with just the right person.  This here journal is on a mission.  One of you NEED it, to document, to heal and to pour into words.

I love this! Cheri is one of the kindest people I know! I have the privilege of having a couple of her pieces, and I must say Cheri puts her heart and soul into all of her artwork. I am already a follower:)

This Journal is calling me because -"I need a pretty place to write brokenness so that the pages will soften the blow when I reread!"
I love mixed media!

This journal is absolutely beautiful! Honestly, it is almost as beautiful as Cheri. I have been following her blog for a long time, and I love her on Facebook. Cheri and I share a very special bond, which I will not go into here.

I want to say thank you for allowing me a chance to say how terrific her work is, and have a chance to win something that will be a treasure forever.

These journals are so beautiful! I've never seen anything like them before, I love all of the details! <3 It's so funny you blogged about this today b/c I actually pulled out an old journal from my early days of marriage this afternoon and was reading (while thanking god for how far we've come) and thought to myself that I need to start writing down my thoughts and prayers again! How cool would it be to win this giveaway and start journaling again in something so inspired!
