Good Mornin' all! I am back from my vacation just a tad bit early. I had a great time while I was gone, But I am very ready to be back to the daily blog. I didn't have go to far on my vacation, not far at all.. I stayed right here in the comforts of my "Home Sweet Home" What did I do you ask?

I signed up for a Valentine swap. I was so excited when I saw this banner that I just had too join. I have been enjoying every little second, creating a special Valentine gift for my swap partner. I would show you, but its TOP secret until I know that my partner has received it.

I have been wanting to do a makeover in my art studio. My studio right now is a bright yellow. It is very energizing, so energizing that I would end up dancing when I was in there. Now, I haven't yet mastered dancing and sculpting at the same time and I don't ever think I will get it down, so I have been searching for the perfect studio. I found it at Lemon Annies. This is it, its tranquil,girly,shabby and old just the way I have always imagined my studio to be. I have been collecting a few old things here and there for this new studio and soon I will have everything I need to do the makeover.

Oh, and I have been working on this piece, here and there. This is "Hilda Holidaze" She is a Fun loving quirky little witch who just adores all Holidays. To show her festiveness Hilda wears a red,white and blue scarf to celebrate our freedom, she keeps a 4 leaf clover at the tip of her hat for luck,she colors Easter eggs to hide for all the children and keeps her Valentine close to her heart. Her pet Turkey stays close and near, as she keeps time for the New Year! " Hilda Holidaze" is an eye catching one-of-a-kind doll for the Holiday Collector. To see more pics and to visit the auction just follow the link.http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&item=140297348817
Vacations are nice, but I am so glad to be back ...Happy Day To All!

Little Angels

This is my grandson Kasen, the youngest of my three little Angels.


Yesterday , in the late afternoon Kasen suffered from a seizure and during the seizure he wasn't breathing , he was blue. He was rushed to the hospital and from there he was sent to Primary Children's hospital. A Neurologist and a Cardiologist were doing some tests on him and have found that Kasen has a congenital heart defect. They will be doing more tests to confirm the severity and what procedure to go forward with.
Kasen has had some medical problems since birth. With frequent lung infections and at times he would stop breathing unable to get any air. At that time the doctor's diagnosed him with asthma. That made sense to us at the time. But lately, Kasen has been sleeping for prolonged lengths of time and when he bends over to pick something up, his face turns bright red. I am thankful that the Dr.s at the ER sent him straight to Primary Children's.
I am confident with Primary Childrens hospital, as they are one of the top children hospitals in America and have so far given him excellent care.
As for now I just pray for Kasen to get well, and for my daughter and son-in-law to have strength.during this time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I've been away from my blog for what seems to be forever and ever! One of my very dear friends and my Boss <--- How lucky is that?)) Had her last day at work on Christmas Eve. She will be gone from my day job until the end of March, as she is expecting her new Bundle of Joy! We have worked together for many years and she had asked me to be the acting manager while she's gone. With careful thought... I said, NO....NO...NO WAY!
WELL, I gave in... at the last minute, the day before Christmas eve, I said i would do it. Gee Gads! SCream...............................................What Was I Thinking? This past week my head has been spinning round and round in Inventory, scheduling and ordering. Oh, and my my usual day to - day job, decorating fantabulous cakes. Thank the Pillsbury Dough Boy that this is only until March. Anyways, there's my big excuse for neglecting my blog and my friends.

NoW, onto the FUN stuff Like CREATIVITY.... I have been winding down in the evenings by working on a piece for one of my E-Bay groups, January Challenges. The Challenge is called, " MY DARK VALENTINE " I am doing something a bit different for this challenge. It is just SO Tremendously fun to Explore New mediums and to Twirl and dance right outta the box into other platues of art within your creative minds eye. I am so pleased with this piece. I Cant wait to show all of you! So... on that note, I am going to start this De~Vine 2009' New Year, down in my studio to finish my first art piece! See you all sooon!
