~READY, SET.....SHOW!~

I am happy to say I am finally done with all my dolls and even added a mouse and a few birds too!  Here they are in all their finery!!  I had so much fun making them!! 


I will be doing a small update today at 4 pm Pacific Time on my Picture Trail and would love to invite you to stop by!  My album will be closed till then so we have time to add everything!  I look forward to seeing you later!

I hope you have a lovely Monday and thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit!!  I truly appreciate each and every one of you!!

Wishing you a Happy Heart~~

~MAKING PROGRESS~

Happy Wednesday My Friends!

Here is a bit of a "peek" at my progress and the dolls are so excited for their upcoming fashion show!!  Hopefully, it won't be too much longer!! 


I hope this finds you all working on some special project that makes your heart sing!

Wishing you a day filled with "CREATIVE SONG!"

~WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR??~

That is the question these 5 sweet dollies have been asking me for several days now!  Not to worry, my dears.....I have your dresses almost ready for you!!


I have been trying to take my own advice from my previous post....seems like many of you could relate and I thank you for your sweet comments and emails!!  I hope you too could enjoy those "rest times" and apparently I must have been taking LOTS of DEEP BREATHS this month already!!!  Lots of resting it seems!!  No matter!!  I have truly been enjoying the whole creative process and just taking my time!! 


 My dolls are a bit anxious for some much needed clothing, but I have told them they must be patient a bit longer and they will be dressed soon!! 


I think they will be pleased!!!

All of these dolls, plus some other things I have been working on will be in my update on my Picturetrail, hopefully soon!!!  I will keep you posted when I am getting close!! 

As for now, I will just keep plugging away, a stitch here, a stitch there, and reminding myself WHY I do what I do.......PURE JOY OF CREATING!!!  It soothes, heals, restores, comforts and brings deep joy to my heart!!  How very thankful I am that I can do what I love!  What could be sweeter??

Wishing you "Pure Joy" today~~

~TIME FOR REST~

"SOMETIMES THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN A WHOLE DAY IS THE REST WE TAKE BETWEEN TWO DEEP BREATHS."  ~ Etty Hillesum

I've been doing that a lot lately....taking deep breaths, and forgetting that there are moments of rest in between!!
As I sit here staring at my computer screen, I am wondering WHERE DID JUNE GO???  Does anyone else feel the same way??  I had so many plans and ideas for projects to complete and in less than an hour, it will be July 1st!!  I have had an album on my Picture Trail ready and waiting for some patriotic items and sadly, I only have TWO THINGS to share!!!  Here's one of them! If you would like to see the other one, just stop by my PT for a peek!
  

I need to remind myself that I am only human, only one person, and that JULY has ONE DAY MORE than June so perhaps I can get more done THIS MONTH!!!Or perhaps this next month, I will try to be more realistic about what I can actually accomplish, and more importantly, ENJOY EACH MOMENT!! I think I like that idea much better, don't you?  

May all of us remember to take that much needed REST, Between TWO DEEP BREATHS!!
