I was up early today. I hope that I can get my craft room straightened up. I'm working on a pindoll that needs to get done and I'm very happy with the way it's coming out. I'll post a picture after my partner receives it. I realize more and more that I have enough stuff in one room of my house to stock a craft and hobby store. Can't move in there and that is changing this weekend. I'm pretty happy with my progress and will hopefully be able to post a picture or two soon. Ted and I will be going to England to visit our daughter and her family in a couple of weeks and we can't wait. I've been to Germany a few times but never to any other countries. England will be interesting - but then seeing our family will be even better. Take care and have a great day.

The other doll that I've been working on lately is Flutterby. He is really not quite finished yet. I need to do more on his face and perch him on a butterfly house with some butterflies, hummingbirds and friends. He is holding butterfly seed in his hand which he pulled from his pouch. Whistling for butterflies appears to be working...
I've been up since 2 am and feel a little punchy. It's seven now. I've taken a couple of pictures of dolls I've been working on. The first is Grandfather Cloud Walker. I started him in May of 2006 in a Jack Johnston workshop that was held in Albany, NY. I made the entire doll including the clothes. (People always ask...)
- 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?
