LOVE WHO YOU ARE



The week between Christmas and New Years, still feels like Christmas is in the air,
Finishing up all the Christmas goodies, Daniel, the chocolate covered strawberries, and the choc caramel apple was amazing! 
Margaret, we all, including the boys, really enjoyed Christmas breakfast, at 2:00. pm
                                             I went out and searched for the "great bargains"  the after Christmas sales, found some really nice, beaded, and embroidered fabric, 50% off - Thank you very much!  Bought myself a  pair of Ugg slippers,  "The Greatest" slipper ever made. Worth the $$.  Also bought a piece of art, However I don't know if  an image on chipboard, qualifies as art, but, it's art to me, I LOVE IT! The photo above.
I want to try and sculpt her.

 One of my Intentions for the new year, is to really figure out. how to blog.  It never comes out, like I want it to.  By the time I am finished, I'm  frustrated with not knowing what the H-- I'm doin, I'm just glad there is text & and image. I finally have come to realize, I'm going to have to, actually read/study this thing!


The above photo, my best Christmas present ever, was the trims, lace, and hankies Peggy -my mother-in-law sent me- that were  her  mother's.   really cool, huh! I'm not giving anyone's age up here, let's just say, they are "old". The trim that is.
                                                              So, continue to embrace the Holiday Spirit folks, it's not over yet!
                                                     

Immanuel


The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel - which means, "God with us" Wishing you a Merry Christmas, and praying that we recognize his presence with us, now, and through out the year to come.
Peace be with you,
Jan

Christmas Memories
Decorating the tree, finding the perfect gift,
taking great care & pride
in wrapping each gift,
The fresh smell of pine,
Itching from angel hair as you passed by the tree,
Stringing popcorn and cranberries,
Mom's cinnamon rolls, , oranges studded with cloves,
Christmas carols, singing & listening,, the jingle of bells,
A Sleigh Ride, Socks,
the neighbors lighted houses,
the hustle and bustle of stores,
Miracle on 34th Street, It's a Wonderful Life,
Scrooge, Charlie Brown Christmas, going to church at
midnight, staying up late,
Reba, Lucy, and Velma singing, and laughing,
Vicki and Jonn, and all those little ones,
Don,
Harvey Wallbangers, playing pokino, mom's fudge,
Gladys,"s first Christmas, The Christmas Bell Pull
on the bathroom door, Kiddles, Kiddles doll house,
Rigatoni and meatballs, Vicki's cheeseball,
Reba on the piano, Velma-Ringy Christmas Bells,
Socks,
Our Savior and Lord

Show me your ways O Lord, teach me your paths,
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
Remember, O Lord, your great mercy and love,
for they are from of old. Remember not the sins of my youth
and my rebellious ways; according to your love
remember me, for you are good, O Lord. Psalms 25: 4-7

Ready for the show!


First, my sweetheart,
who has been severely neglected
in the last two months while
I was consumed in doll
making. Very understanding, and supportive!
Thank you, Honey!


Two new ladies, a fairie, and a snowman.
I was going to take just one photo of my ladies and fairie. But there was much to much protest and complaining. After all, they know the other dolls, each had their own page. They are a little competitive and each want "their time" in the spotlight. So, without further ado, I introduce you to my newest ladies. The fairie. And a snowman.

The craft fair is this Thursday. I'll be ready. I won't do any more "shows" too much stress. I don't like to create under pressure. Now, I'll be back to creating at my leisure. I have a shop in Maple Grove who want to sell my pod dolls. There are a few shops, I may consider putting the dolls in, but, this sounds wierd (I know) I don't want people touching them.
I really don't expect anybody to buy one of my ladies, they are on the high side (price wise")
I really am just looking for exposure and possible networking .
Thanks for your comments, they mean a lot to me.



Updated version of "Grouchy Old Snowman"
I used all recycled materials, old sweaters,
socks, etc. Here he is outside, he seems
happier now.


Flower Fairie.
Made from an old silk
flower, I took a part. Face and body
painted with watercolors.

She is sitting in a nest she found while playing in the garden
out back. I will be adding a small bottle filled with fairie dust
to sit in her lap.

Don't have her name yet, she is very put out.

Her hair is made from alpaca wool. She
has a delicate pale pink hair adornment
made from a vintage earring.

Her dress is made from vintage fabrics,
laces, and trims.

Collette

One of my favorites. Her hair was made
from an old wig I took a part.
Her dress is recycled from an under petticoat
from a little girls fancy dress.
