Yes the gentlemen packed my stuff, carried it to the car and got me home safely!!!! But Christmas morning all of my children came over for breakfast. Greg made breakfast! (best husband in the world!! Now  this was one of the best Christmas's we have had. Now to brace ourselves for the snow. Let's see. Lot's of food, making dolls, I can't think of a better way to start my vacation!!!

Will the little "Winged Monkey" be complete?! So much to do. Mixing colors and fabrics. Wow if this is what stuck in the house entails then I want to be stuck!

Sunday, February 21, 2010


Well this weekend I didn't get all that I wanted done! Injured my back. But I managed to get doll sewn up, stuffed and with mask baked and ready to be painted. Oh my back has spasms. Lot's of medicine until my grandsons father gave me an exercise. He is an ex football player LOL! So I used his advice. It helped a lot. But as soon as I lift something it comes back. Solution: don't lift unnecessarily. Thank God for the dishwasher. I still cooked dinner though LOL! But back to creating. I have too projects for you. One the surprise and the other one is the winged and flying monkey. I try to work on something everyday. I have a lot of days until my "Art Is" class. But I am preparing everyday. This is not just going to be a class but an extravaganza!! I'm telling you no one can do it like me! LOL! I want to form a doll club after this class so that we can meet regularly. LOL! So much stuff. So many give give aways, raffles, and student prizes. Get so excited when I think about this class and this doll. I have 4 divas on the butchers block for completion. I am determined.I am trying her so many different ways for all questions. Oh well we will see.

Saturday, February 20, 2010


Sometimes people can almost make you lose your creative spirit! Whew! I may get knocked to my knees, but I will never be knocked out! Like the little engine that could I will keep creating, keep creating, keep creating......

A lot going on this month. I am working on my second Art Is doll and the Flying Diva Monkey! What fun creating this new doll. I have so much fun looking for things to embellish her with. And the costuming for the second doll is going to be fierce as well. I want this to be a very successful class! All of my spiritual creative energy is focused there right now. I enjoy people having fun!! I can't wait to sign up for workshops. If you people miss Art Is this year. Well you will have to wait until 2011~! That's a long wait. I can hardly wait for 2010.

Art Is... of course!!!

Well I completed my lady witch for the Art Is You conference. As soon as I can I will post the picture to the blog!!

Friday, January 1, 2010


Well I have created a new pattern to teach at Art Is!! The title of my class is Which Witch areYou? Oh as soon as she is completed and sent to the Art Is team of Sallianne and Ellen, she will be my world tour promotion. First of all if you follow my blog get your payment plan ready because you will want to go to Art Is. If you have any artistic inclination or drive this is the place to be. You will go into "Art Is" overload. I can bet a stake in that claim.

Anyhow, my Witch class is right up my artistic alley. When I get finish teaching you this doll, you will think that the doll world revolves around the witch divas that we can so become. I will invite students to journey with me in creating their innermost "witch moment." It's going to be fun. In 6 hours what we can create! This is a class project created exclusively for Art Is. Take my class you won't regret it. LOL!! From 1 witch bitch to another!!

Happy New Year 2010 is here!!!!

You know I don't make New Year resolutions because I live each day to do better than the day before. But something about the New Year that just challenges you. Think about how a stubborn person never wants to change. Do they really not want to change or too stubborn to change. Who is more miserable when it comes to people like that...we the changers I suppose. My father always taught us no matter what try to learn something it keeps your mind strong. So happy New Year to the movers and shakers LOL! To the stubborn and unchanging well I guess you are happy too!
