"God grant me the Serenity
To accept the things I cannot change
Courage to change the things I can
and the Wisdom to know the difference."

This prayer has gotten me through many tough moments in my help me understand what I actually have "control" of, and what I do not....
This beautiful clock, I have been working on for over a month. I was on a mission to submit this Winter Fairy to Art Doll Quarterly for the June 15th deadline. This piece is the first piece that I have ever submitted..for various reasons. I was committed to do this for myself..June 13th I was suppose to ship Priority then decided I was whooped from graduation, hospital visits to dad, and it was Mom's I will Express tomorrow.....My Dad died that night, and in my shocked, depressed stupor, I looked at this ironically timed. What should I do? Send or keep? I thought of my Dad, and I know what he would tell me..."Honey, do your thing"....and so I did. Thank you Dad!

I've lost my Dad

With unbelievable sorrow I have got to say that a piece of my heart is gone. My father died yesterday June 14th, 2007. My dad was admitted to the hospital on Sunday with pneunomia and seemed to be recovering quite well. He was due to be moved to a care facility yesterday, in order to regain some strength in his legs. He was found by the night nurse not breathing and all efforts to rescitate him were made. Words cannot express my feelings of loss. Please pray for my mom and our family. Thank you all!

Buy Me!

Just listed "Mr. Wishes" Cat Clock over at EBAY. I love his sweet face..different cat sculpt for me, and I like him! BID on Mr. Wishes here
Busy weekend around the hacienda...My son Max is graduating High School and Jilly is coming home to surprise him! I am so proud of Max, and I know I'm going to cry like crazy! I just can't believe that my sweet little boy is "grown up"..well not quite, but definitely a landmark. Where did the time go? Well so much of it went to a job that I hated and the words "We've got to hurry", will be embedded in my mind forever. I HATE that phrase, and I have sworn to never say it to my children again.

I am so, so, so THANKFUL to have been given a chance to follow my dreams of being artist and working from home. I know I have been given a great gift. If you are trying to leave your job and change your life.....YOU CAN DO IT!!! It might take some time and probably sacrifices, but it's worth every wrinkle!
