About Me

My photo

I am a mother, a wife, a sister, a best friend a daughter, and artist.

If there was a way I could spend as much time in my studio creating as I do working my regular 40 hour job I would do it in a heartbeat. I am loving discovering myself through art and I can't wait to see where the journey takes me.


Life throws a major curve ball

So yah...2 weeks ago tonight was on my way downstairs to bed...over stepped and fell and landed on the ceramic tile...end result...a broken fibula and surgery a week later...they had to put in a plate and 5 screws...I have a lengthy recovery ahead, but hopefully not too lengthy...I started a new job Jan 7th and it is very physical and I have to have 100% sign off from my doctor in 6 weeks or I cant go back...
On top of all of this we have to move out of our house by the end of April...lol...

Luckily I have the most amazing husband, and he is taking the best care of me that I could ever imagine. He is able to work from home so we will be able to get a lot accomplished for the move.

I also made a new friend here in town...One of my husbands co workers and his wife, whom I had never met, came over the Sunday before my surgery and brought us a wonderful home made lasagne dinner...Paula and I hit if off instantly and I am so happy to have found a new friend...they also told us about a house for rent 2 doors down from them and it ended up being exactly what we are looking for. We signed the lease papers and gave the deposit today so the house is ours...and thank goodness its a ranch style home so no more stairs...

So even with the curve ball life decided to throw me, there has been so much more positive than negative...I received flowers tonight from my sweet friend Denise Phillips and it just took the positive to a whole other level...Denise is such a funny, amazing, inspiring and beautiful person, and I am so thankful that she is a friend.

Oh so in all this craziness I actually managed to complete my first doll in Laura Robberts loverlee class....and I am going to finish another tomorrow.
This is Aldora and I LOVE how she came out...I will be making many more and listing them in my etsy shop soon...I need an income...!!!!
 Her name is Aldora and it means "Winged Gift"
Thanks for stopping by.
