Latest comfort dolls

These will be sent out sometime next week. I need a large envelope to send! I like making these, as each one is different! You don't know until you finish. I will be starting on the nest
dozen soon.

A dozen comfort dolls

This is my latest doll. After finishing with her, I realized I needed to do some "tweaking", which I will do on the next one. Constantly learning!


"Creativity is inventing, experimenting, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes,
and having fun." Mary Lou Cook

As artists we are constantly looking for inspiration so we can do all these things.
Where ever your creativity comes from it's not always there!It can come at
any time and in any place...maybe from something we see or read.When I get
ready to "create" it just comes.Sometimes it's great other times it can be a
struggle.I don't know where it comes from, but it spills out!I gather things
around me and look at them thinking what will come!I hope your creativity
is flowing and you are happy with it.Smiles and Blessings on this sunny, hot
Florida day!

Rain and Hail

We have been praying for rain. Well, yesterday we had the best rain! It was awesome.
Today it started getting cloudy and dark and started thundering. Then it came! HAIL!!
It started out small and light, but got to the size of marbles+ and much heavier. The wind was blowing really hard and it was coming down.....hitting the windows, roof, car etc....noisey. I grabbed my camera and opened the front door. These are the pics I got! It was so cool.
Literally, it cooled off quite a bit, too. Thank you Lord for the rain. Smiles and blessings.

Latest Art Work

These two ATC cards are my latest art works. I also made the large pocket to hold them. These little cards are the size of playing cards and are so much fun to put together. Anything goes here! So let your imagination run amok! These are gifts to a swap friend, and I hope she will like them. Smiles!
