Patiently Waiting.........

I have been waiting......... Very patiently waiting..........I find myself day dreaming while I'm savoring every sweet, pepper minty, goodness of my favorite Holiday candy.... gazing down at my pure, fluffy wintery white feathers...... I have had the most glorious creative day, working on my Tiffanie's Christmas gift. But now, I am at a idle moment....A stand still..
I checked the mail box... Nothing was there....... I checked it again, hoping for the precious silver stones I had ordered... But they are not there...DRATZ!!!!

This morning began at 4 am. when I heard my husbands wonderful voice. I jumped up, made him coffee and gave him a big ole' smooch before seeing him off to work. I ran downstairs and pulled out some of my favorite supplies. Paverpol, Paper clay and some cotton fibers. These Fabulous products are a big part of my creation that I am working on today!

Another big part of my today's creation is Inspiration! These fabulous pine cones were given to me by my Father-in-law and his wife Betty. About a week before Thanksgiving, we had a lovely visit from them. When my Father-in-law handed me these fascinating gifts of nature, I was instantly inspired.

I worked all morning on this sweet pine cone doll for my daughter Tiffanie. I am using all natural findings from Mother Earth, for this little Pine cone doll...... but now, I am at a standstill. Before I can go any further on her completion, I need the mailman to bring me my silver stones... I am patiently waiting.........savoring my favorite sweet, pepper minty Holiday candy.

This Pine cone doll is awesome. Wow, I love the face. I also love the Piper story. So so cute, that poor cat up in the tree. Loved all of the pictures. They told the story perfectly

Cute pinecone creation! I would like to have some of those fun sugar cones for myself to see if I could make a santa from them like the old fashioned ones. Thanks for coming to "see" me today! I hope you have a great weekend.
