Brittany's First Doll

Just had the most wonderful week of my life. My granddaughter was here from Richland, WA and we had a blast...well at least I did! We shopped till we dropped. We sunbathed in the hot AZ sun. We eat till we almost burst and we made dolls. Brittany made her first doll "Rhiannon" which means: Great Queen or Goddess....does that sound like my granddaughter? Brittany is fast becoming the next generation of doll-makers....of course that will be after she gets out of College!
We are off to the airport...sad day for me, happy day for her family in the north.

Asherha's Shoes

Posted by Picasa

Asherha is done.

Well I have been working on "Asherha" for several weeks now. I used "Beyond's" pattern for her. I was inspired by some fabric I have had for over a year now designed by Loralie Designs the title of the fabric, "Wild Cat Woman." Although I like that name I decided to give my doll a name that I thought fit her....Asherha means: she who walks on water (Eastern Mythology). Her Platinum hair with a touch of silver just gives her that mature look that can take on the world. Leather coat and matching purse with her name on it makes sure that a well dressed woman has no fear of anyone. I used pearls that my grandmother wore. Her heels are made of leather with a touch of silver. Please enjoy her....I will have her pattern ready by the end of the year for those who may be interested in making your own doll.

Another chance for you

If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down.

Today 15 years ago I married my soul mate!

To My Husband...You are the kind of man I thought I'd never meet. A man whose smile and words can sweep a girl right off her feet. Strong enough to lean on and warm enough to care. True enough to count on when I needed you to be there. Brave enough to share your dreams and say whats on your mind. Boy enough to marvel at small wonders that you find. Sweet enough to make me feel I'm someone you admire. A friend you love to laugh with, a woman you desire. You are everything (and then some) that I'd ever hoped you'd be. Dream enough, real enough and man enough for me. I love you Steve...Happy Anniversary Buns of Fun!
