Drum Roll Pleeeeease!

This is an exciting week for me - well actually it hasn't been the best of weeks, weather is pretty bad and I haven't felt that well - but - it all came together when I logged on to my email and saw that I had won the January "Shoe" challenge on the Beginner Polymer Clay Art Guild list! How cool is that , my little green fairy shoe is a winner! this shoe was a lot of fun to make and now I need to make a fairy to go with it - no nothing but a piece of leg in a shoe right now - more to come???

I also made a "Cold" pin doll for Jeri on Pin Doll Alley in the January Swap. I enjoyed making this pin doll - the challenge I gave myself was to make the North Wind and make her look cold and blowing. LOL. It was also a lot of fun. I got to bead and do a little bit of needle sculpting and to use a few additional products to ice her up. What fun in what has been a cold, cold month.

And last but by no means least was my final challenge of the month of January. It is a black and white Challeng on the Art Fest 4 the soul group list. The challenge was just that - an art piece in black and white. Period
No boundaries, no other rules - except of course to post the picture by the end of the month. Ellen and Sallianne will be giving a challenge each month and then when the conference is held in October we will all share the resulting art work in a gallery of works. This is a lot of fun and really helps to keep creativity going. This is a picture of my entry, "Winter Realm - the place where Spring waits"

Last post I spoke of my husband, Ted's Retirement party. I have a few pictures now. I still haven't gotten to the video but I'm looking forward to it. This is a picture of Ted, after his parting presentations, saying what a joy it has been working with various people and how much he will miss them. Ted's adieu:
And here are a couple of more family pictures. One is the family table at the party. Samantha, Andrew, Edward, and Aaron. Samantha is our granddaughter and the three men are Ted's sons.

So January has been a busy month and now it's February. What lies in store? Who knows - but the Ground hog didn't see his shadow - so that's promising.....

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?
