I can't believe that it's September already! Time really flies when you're having fun. LOL. I participated in an insect and lizard swop on Pin Doll Alley in August and sent Connie a Cicada bug pin and a bag. The cicada is not a pretty bug and I think I got a little carried away with similarity...LOL. Oh well, I had a great time making this pin - the black, beaded wings were a lot of fun to work on. You can't really tell but the little clear beads at the top of the wing intersection are swarofski - thought it might give an otherwise pretty dull bug a little bling. Some things I guess you can't dress up! She does have a face on the front but it was all about the bug!
- I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years. I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories. I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent. I am very blessed. I live with five frisky cats, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish. Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over 18 years. There is also a five year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now. My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls. Who could ask for more than that?
