Hi and Happy New Year's Eve of New Year's Eve!

Welcome to December 30th! What a year it's been. Can't wait to see what 2008 may bring. I hope that we find good health and great peace with in it's bounds. I have been working on a few things and am posting some pictures here. I made an elf from cloth along with a stocking to send him to Yvette Cole in. This one was made as a swap for her on Pin Doll Alley.

I also made an Ornament for Fran Parrington-Mehan as a secret santa swap on A Dolls Safe Haven. I really had a great time making this ornament and using the beautiful magenta taffeta lining fabric that I also used years ago on my daughter Becky's prom dress.
Just before Christmas I started working on a head sculpt. I was trying for a Santa but at this stage it looks more like an ogre. Who knows how it will end up. I kind of work as it comes and many change of directions may occur. I also made a face mold out of this one. Not sure how I will use them but I did make a couple of impressions. (LOL> Only time will tell...)

We spent Christmas at my daughter's house and had a wonderful time. Lots of food and fun and the kids all got more than enough for the year. Mike will be home from NYC for a couple of weeks in January and we look forward to that. He is still working in Prom at Webster Hall and having a great time.

I'm hoping that in the coming year I will be able to branch out with my work and enter a few things here and there.

These are a few pictures from our visit to Prom

The good one of Mike on the bar was taken by our son, Aaron's girlfriend, Annelise. Thanks!

I also want to add a picture of the window decorations in our sunroom and the view of the snow on the horse field from the windows. (Horse has been long dead and the fence taken down but it will forever be "the horse field". God Bless Gaucho.)

About Me

My photo

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?
