Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

Not sure why there is always a space here...never happened before...but check out this NEW FUN!!!
!!    PLUS I just added another I made as a card for my grand daughter .... at the bottom with glitter pens!
Peyton painted (with copics) her manikin! Cute! Now all the kids want one!
Elena's ,5 yrs,drawing of the "good boy"....she said.

My decor and doodling and journaling around Elena's work in my journal. And below her sideways cat and flower....

Olivia, 12 yrs, and I made rubberband bracelets....they are too fun!!!

I drew him and Elena, 5 yrs, wanted to paint him....made a great conversation!!  I am HOOKED on doing these!!!

Then this conversation between two women....about an up coming Bible Study...

Before all the black was filled in....

I gave my artistic grand daughter a manikin for Christmas and this is what developed!!!  I instructed her how to use it to draw people, she wanted to paint the doll instead, BUT THEN we began to draw and journal and doodle along!!!  Well, I am hooked and going to do a whole journal of these people and their conversations!!  It is copyrighted now.....NOT!  Ha  So fun!! I might submit it to a magazine!!  ENJOY!!! I DID!!!....and AM!!! Blessings to you ALL for 2014....a new year for new beginnings!!

She was collecting nests and didn't realize there were eggs in it until Mama and Pappa Bird began attacking her!  She DID put the nest back promptly!!

Aren't they fun?!! And if you could read them, the girl asks the boy if he knows Jesus...then he says, No, is he your boyfriend? and she says, No he is a King that I know...you want to meet him?....etc, etc....this form of doodling with a message is so fun....love you and hope all is well with you. I pray you have a year full of His Intimate presence! You are a treasure!! sherry
