My ex made an entire viking ship. Meticulously painted. Looked and felt like real wood. Sails and oars included. CO's and other inmates alike were asking how much to buy it. It's still on display in my living room. A pirate ship for my oldest son. Vases with bouquets of roses. Jewelry boxes. Piggy banks for the kids in every design imaginable. Necklaces with pendants. Woven bracelets. Nerf gun targets that flip over when shot. Numerous beautiful paintings and drawings on different mediums from all over the country. Some as large as 4 feet square. Seriously, you name it, they can build it...and I've probably received most of it over the years.

I have lots of artwork and dream catchers I will try and post some pictures. It’s amazing how creative they can be with so little .

My guy is not the artsy guy but he had another very talented inmate draw me a birthday-, Christmas- and Valentine's day card. Awesome art but beyond that, he can draw a heart and kinky stuff that looks like it was done by a 2-year old... that's about it...

I got a woven necklace/bookmark......not sure what its intention was.
lol.
One of hubs *friends* made it out of threads from ratty inmate clothing.
It has a heart and our initials woven in. Its hanging in our bedroom as we speak.


He would also send some fancy envelopes and handmade cards (for me to send or the kids to send to others)


Hubs not that creative but I see alot of artwork (I work for the Post office ) come thru. Some of its very very good. Others well...not so much.

Who was it that got the stick drawings and the “artist” wanted her to sell them? That was the funniest thread I’ve ever read here.

I’ve gotten a lot of con craft... dreamcatcher earrings, a Mjolnir necklace, beaded flowers and bracelets, calligraphy items, a jaw-dropping pencil drawing of... Billy Idol.

My favorite thing though.... I have a huge dollhouse and a number of pen pals have, by request, made tiny pieces of artwork for my dollhouse. Most are about 2 inches by 3 inches and I put them in tiny frames. I think it’s awesome... my dollhouse has all original artwork.

Yup, mine is the same....so I haven't received anything made by him although he has sent cards and pictures he's had other people do for me. It's fine by me

I have to say I love those dreamcatchers - never had any myself.

Maytayah, I am glad you've found some real artist/s as well, haha I believe Marseille is referring to one of your pen pals with that stick figure "art" he wanted to you to try and sell...- still makes me laugh too

Wow you guys, all these artistic gifts sound awesome! My guy is not super artsy and neither am I, but he has done some pretty cool "shadow art" pictures for me and he helped an artist in there draw a picture of us based on our photographs. And beyond that, he's a great writer of fantasy stories. I'd say that counts as art!

Mine can't really draw. A few flowers and such. I have had beautiful cards and portraits made. My favorite was a series of homes. He had a guy draw up what he envisioned and I sent pictures of homes I liked.

Yes, it is our dream house, which may take a while to get, but I love the fact that our tastes are similar. I keep all that in a binder of future plans.

Our 2 year anniversary is tomorrow and I know he has something for me at the visit. I'm excited to see what it is because I have no idea. Usually, we can't keep a secret. He is getting shirts. 2nd anniversary is cotton, so it fits!

The gifts have been interesting and I keep them close by, each one reminds me that he doing okay. I have roses made from toilet paper and koolade, a full dozen. A beautiful dream catcher which I hung on the lamp by my bedside, a woven bookmark and cards with lovely art of butterflies and one has the two of drawn on it.

The entrepreneurial spirit of those around my husband inspires me to continue to learn new things to get through this.

Thank you for asking, Namaste

In case anyone missed it, here is the polar bear art thread , its worth a read. When you get inmate art then thank your lucky stars its not from my former pen pal.
