"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!

Art Doll Quarterly will be CRAZY to not put this in their magazine!

i love you..

Christy, she is absolutely breathtaking! I personally would have a hard time letting her go...but then again I have a way of clinging onto all things
devine!...and that she is. :)

Maybe your most beautiful piece yet, Christy. You captured the essence of this prayer and turned it into a breathtaking piece of art.

Christy, The time piece is a masterpiece. And I love how you spoke of your Dad. I would have liked to have known him. I know you make him proud.

I adore your new Serenity is so much more then a clock.

My heart goes out to you. It must be a very difficult time for you. I hope in time, your heart will heal and smile once again.

I love seeing your new creations, as you are very gifted. All of your creations have so much soul in them...they have a Life all their own.
