Val's Altered HeART Journey: Belated post -- not about art but about life
a one of our own needs our prayers about a world-wide prayer chain ...Val has been diagnosed with cervical cancer which has spread to the bladder......she needs our healing prayers and the support of our community. Please take the time to add her to your prayers and stop by her blog and leave a message....knowing how much people care can be such good medicine for the soul. Thanks.

Some stuff I made.........

paper art doll...head from "old and filthy dolls" free sheet by,dress from collage anonymous and the dress from ACOT.the little metal hands and "google" eyes from who knows where..have had them for some time. watercolor pencils and stickles glitter glue and STABIO finepoint pens were used,also.
the ATC's are for 2 swaps for the PaperImageryDesign yahoo group...images ,of course, are from PaperImageryDesigns
The mermaid paper art doll is for a swap for ATC-art dolls yahoo group.I have been trying to be more imvolved with the groups I'm in. It has been hard,because so much of my supplies are in boxes since my son moved home,and then when we had to empty a storage unit containing my parents 3 BR,LR,formal DR,den kitchen and 60 + years of stuff into my house along with my son's stuff..I CAN'T FIND ANYTHING !! and, it's spread out everywhere!!! thought I'd remember where I put everything,but I don't!! can't afford to buy new stuff,so, have to use what little I can get to. Makes it hard, but I'm trying to look at it as a challenge ................thanks for taking the time to visit my little spot of the blogworld !!!
