A few months back, I was contacted by the editor of 
and she ask if I would submit my

And I did of course... and she made it into their Winter 2012 Issue!!!
Oh, Happy Joy!
I didn't know this was going to feel so good to see
one of my dollies in print, in one of my favorite magazines.
But it does, it feels real good to be among the other Artist in this Magazine, 
I am so very grateful.
and so proud of

Happy Thanksgiving...

Well, I'm a day late, but I had a good reason, spending time with those I love enjoying our Holiday.
A little cooking, a little sewing, a bit of this and a bit of that.
 I just want to wish everyone a 
Happy Thanksgiving Holiday.
Hope you enjoyed yours as much as I did. 
Family, great food and good fun.
 I've got a lot of Santas to make still, and enjoying every minute of it. I love this time of year.

Around the Corner...

Yep,Everything is just around the corner. Most especially the Holidays that we all love so much.  
Time is running and it isn't waiting for me.

It really feels like yesterday I was on Vacation, driving to Hilton Head, South Carolina and the Temps were at 104 degrees. 
And now the chill of Fall, and there is a Rainbow of Autumn colors in the trees outside my window. 
 I am working on Santa dolls all day, everyday. It's a good thing I love what I do and love Creating new things.

A collection of my OOAK Santa creations can be found at 
in Historic Leesburg Virginia.

Before & After...

I've had my hands to work on a few of those things
that ya always say 
"I gotta get to that"
Well, I'm getting to it. HA!
I have wanted to redo this cabinet for quite some time. 

From this.
( Believe it or not, I got this in the mid 90's...looked 70's-ish, ya?.)

To This.

Just a little paint, and sanding.
A fresh piece of glass for the front and a bit of 
Hand dyed paper from Netty LaCroix.
 Strange, I wanted to up dated it, to make it look older.
 Re-Purposed, Well done.
