I am a mother of 2 and a grandmother of 4. I have 2 cats and 1 dog. My husband is an artist...he is an amazing person!! I love to create art..I love to alter ANYTHING. I also make primitive cloth dolls. I love to make jewelry as well.My home is my sanctuary and it is filled with my husbands art and my creations. I hope you like what you see...none of it is "perfect" in everyone's eyes...but I am proud of everything I've made.
My oldest grandson celebrated his 6th birthday today. I think back over these very short years,back to the day he was born..I was in the L&D room the entire time ( leaving my daughters side only to pee and sneak a quick cigarette(..don't worry..I have been smoke-free,non-smoker since Sept.2009!!!!..smoked since I was 18 and I am 54!!)..anyway....I remember as my daughter was dilated to 10 and pushing, I looked into the birth canal and got my first look at his sweet dark little head(wasn't so little to Savannah!!!)..saw him slide out of his Mommy's body,into the waiting hands of the doctor,his Daddy cut the cord..and thus began an incredible bond with this grandson I love more than my own life! thank you to my daughter and her then-boyfriend for letting me share this . He is now quite the little devil..full of mischief,humor and unlimited energy ! He still loves to snuggle with me and tell me secrets and share his day,good or bad, with me. I have had the "wonder' of sharing his life so far with him..yes,it's crowded with everyone living with my husband and me..there are days I think " gosh, i'd really like to spoil him with lot's of sugar and send him home!!",but home is with us! But,the trade off is I get to be with him , my darling granddaughter Gracie and my sweetie-pie ginormous grandson Eddie(he's 20 mos,weighs 34 lbs and can wear a 3T shirt and pants! ). he's a big boy now..he got to ride to school today in the front seat...no more car seat!! (6 years or 60 lbs)..that really made him feel like a big boy. Came home from kindergarten wearing a birthday crown with his name on it and he got to pick 2 things from the treasure box..boy, was he happy!!
ATC and paper art doll made for the PID yahoo group weekly challenge/mingle(I still get confused as to mingle or challenge). Images are from PaperImageryDesigns...drop by their store as there are some great new collage/image sheets. The theme is (duh !!!!) WHAT A DOLL. The kewpie's ballerina dress is a stamp that I used watercolors and stickles glitter glue(which I just LOVE) on,legs are cut out from an old ad/photo..I didn't label where I got it,but if I remember I will post it(want to give credit due!!),turquoise metal rose with stickles glitter glue for highlights on her head. The basket the little girl is holding is from Dover..free sample from their weekly newsletter..I used a clear glitter pen to highlight the basket and eggs,Ranger Distress ink pad ,scrapbook paper and lace that I colored blue with the ink pad. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog..it always makes me feel so good to know when you have. Happy weekend!!!!
