Happy Memorial Day


Happy Memorial Day! I hope you are all enjoying family, food, and fun during this unofficial start of Summer. I just listed this Uncle Sam Clock, Allegiance, on Ebay. It has been so long since I listed anything, I hope my customers haven't forgotten me. To see Allegiance in all of his Glory, go here... I hope you will bring your bidding finger!

Wishing


I have several wishes that I think of daily, and from day to day, they change in intensity, however they are always there. My biggest wish is to have Whimsies in the thousands and spread all over the Earth, but just for today, my Biggest wish is to have our PFATT daughter, Brianna, cured. She had one of several zillion hurdles to overcome today, and so far... so good. I am thankful and happy that this Wish is happening. Be good to one another, and never give up on your Wishes!

My Girl is back in LA

Yep, she is finally "home" in Los Angeles after 2 months in Atlanta and 2 weeks in the Bahamas. Now what? She has no clue..She was told that they would be going on a "mini tour" in July, but that is up in the air. It seems because of the record label change, that Janet will possibly make another album. If that is the case, then there will be no tour for at least 6 months.

Now the questions is what will she do now? Well I would imagine she will go back to her natural hair color(with a little help :)to the above color. Her natural curl could be a lot harder to recover, but I will keep my fingers crossed. This is a more recent pictured since the "makeover" by Janet:

There is so much work and stress in the life that she has chosen, but I know she never regrets the path. I am hoping that she comes home for Max's graduation next month, but only the stars will tell. I am hoping that I see this girl return:

Happy Mother's Day!

It was an eventful weekend, and none of it has to do with Whimsies. Friday night, my daughter Jillian performed in the Bahamas with Janet Jackson...It's surreal to think about, but here is where she's been staying for the past 2 weeks.(Atlantis)Tomorrow night there will be clips on Entertainment Tonight or E..so I will be watching.. Here is a still photo of the show Jillian did manage to send me a present..a Red Velvet Cake from Doughboy Bakery in Los Angeles. Oprah rated it the best cake in America, and here it is :

It was Prom for Max on Saturday night, and of course, in typical Max fashion, he was running a "little behind". Greg and I spent the day gathering his wardrobe from the cleaners, Ross, and the tuxedo shop. I picked up a beautiful corsage for his date, and the only thing I missed out on was dinner. LOL Here is my beautiful boy (who will be 18 in only 1 week..eghads)Here's the happy couple: That unhappy look is stress because they were running late..this time not because of Max... the other couple...LOL

Well, I guess that's it... I've got a whole lot of work to do, and 2 birthdays this week... Max and also Jack who will be 12. May the Force be with you!

My Visit with Sam and IVA

Well, I'm back from my wonderful trip to see my best friend SAM, and to hug our brave PFATT sister, Iva and her sick daughter, Brianna. To read about her fight for life, please click here

Another BIG THRILL of mine was going to AMERICAN HARVEST Sharon the owner is such a sweet person, and her shop will make your knees wobble.
That's Sharon, Sam, and Kitty Forseth (another very talented PFATT artist..go here to see her blog) pictured inside American Harvest. We discussed adding some Whimsie babies to her beautiful shop, so we are planning on sending our first Halloween babies of 2007 to her shop! Shopping, eating, shopping, sitting on the beach, shopping, great hugs, and more shopping pretty much covered our whole trip. I love my family for always taking care of things while I'm gone, and I love my sister and my friends who made my trip so much fun. Sammie... you know how special you are, and I love you very much! And all who are reading this, never take anything for granted. Tell the people you love that you care deeply for them, and always, always follow your heart...and eat dessert first!
