Texas - sick with a sinus infection - but feeling inspired...

In Texas with my dad.  I came down with a cold the day after I got here and wound up with an antibiotic and decongestant.  Finally feeling a little better.  I've taken advantage of the time to watch some crafters do projects on you- tube. Feeling very inspired and ready to go home and get busy in my craft room.  Of course that also means I have to finish cleaning it up.  But I'm feeling ready.

The weather here is cool to cold but I'm thankful that if I had to come down with this that I'm here and not home buried in snow!  Hopefully it won't be as long to my next post. I am trying to build an Etsey shop too - but the perseverance necessary for that endeavor has been sadly lacking. I tried to get my son to build it for me but he doesn't have time. I guess one day I'll surprise myself.

Until next time - keep a smile on your face and a song in your heart.

Home - first real vacation in quite a few years -

Tired but happy.  Took a trip to Disney World - with my daughter Rebecca and her family.  We had a great time - stayed in Disney's All Star Movies resort - what a great idea.  Will be posting some pictures - got some incredible ideas for dolls to make!  Can't wait.

January 2012 and posting swap stuff from December 2011

Well, not too bad - only a month has passed and I'm posting the doll I made for Kath Davids, the puppet maker and the doll that Aileen Turner made for me.  I was so lucky to have Aileen for a swap partner - she makes fabulous dolls!

Take a look:  This guy is from Aileen - he makes me smile - he is the cutest and will stay out in my home all year.
 And this is Peppermint, the elf I made for Kath.  (Pardon the mess of my crafting area....)

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?
