Haed or Nene Thomas lovers.

If you didn't know Steven wrote a book that goes along with his wife's artwork. If you like to read fantasy and are a fan of Nene's art you should enjoy the book. Yes Nene helped with the book as well. I have the luck of running into Steven last yr at my husbands comic book shop. The owner is friends with them as far as when they were in school. I was reading it online and the owner of the store had a print out of it and was going to give it to. The book was on the way to the printers so I said I'd be patient and wait. Last month was my B-day. And I just got my copy of their book from Hubby. We went and picked it up today. However, look inside. They secretly worked together the 4 slick bunch of them. Hubby, the shop owner ( i know his name but I'm not sure if he'd appreciate me posting it to get lots of ppl to come into his store looking for his friends), Steven, & Nene to get me a SIGNED by BOTH of them copy of the book as my Bday gift! Well I just got it today because Steven and Nene have been out of town between the Ren Fair, Comic Con, and the other places they visit. We currently live in there home town so I got lucky meeting Steven by accident. I went into the store to pick up some of her art. I ended up getting 4 big matted prints and a md matted print and a calendar. Steven and Hubby were talking while I was busy with the kids in the store and when we went to pick em up all were signed to me by Nene!!!! I mentioned the Haed site to them and how cool it would be if they would allow her work to be done as a HAED last June and I don't know the details of their contract with them but I'm SOO Glad they did! Since my favorite pieces of her's I have matted and signed I havn't bought any of the HAED's yet. I have so many already to finish. But isn't wonderful! All because last June my Hubby got promoted and I got to spend his promotion money on artwork of my choice I accidentally ran into Steve I now have signed are and the signed book to go with it! Yup I'm bragging but I bet if you ACCIDENTALLY ran into one of your favorite artist's you would to. Below are pictures of the signed book. To think just yesterday I had said to Hubby that it would be nice to feel special and appreciated for all I do around here once in a blue moon. And today I feel just that!


  1. That's awesome Brenda, and thanks for giving them the idea to go with HAED. She's one of my fave artists, and I have quite a few of her charts. Now I just need a few extra hours a day to work on them, lol.

  2. I would love a few extra hrs as well. My haeds r ufo's ATM. What little time Ive had to stitch lately I've been spending on an Autumn piece for my kitchen.
