So Much to do

I wanted to take a few pictures of Zoe with her baby. She loves her little Doll. My mum & dad bought it for her on her first Christmas. It was a little more than most dolls but not as much as some. The reason we went with a Madame Alexander doll is because a little girl at the school I was working at had one and Zoe loved to carry it around. They are about the same size as a bitty baby. I adore their little faces with the vintage feel. She is always being such a good mommy with her little doll. Still hasn't named her yet, I'm sure one day she will. Today when she was going down for her nap she dragged her little wooden cradle into our room, wrapped her baby gently in a little blanket, rocked her for a few minutes while she talked in a sing songy voice to her, and then gently put her to bed in that little cradle. Be still my heart! It almost brought tears to my eyes. So I wanted to take some pictures of those little hands with the dirt under the nails (hey what can I say, she likes the dirt too) holding her favorite baby.

Just a little painting I started.

I spent most of the weekend sick and feeling pretty much lousy. I slept and slept and slept some more. It felt good to get caught up on some z's. Now it's time to get back to work on all of the many projects I am trying to juggle. If you are still interested in donating something for the upcoming JDRF auction there is still time. Just email me so I can send you the proper forms. Thanks to all you lovely ladies who have so graciously donated your talents to this worthy cause. 
I will be trying to post as often as possible on the works in progress. They will all be going to the auction, and whatever they don't need will be going to my shop. Dean was such a sweetheart, he sprayed all the canvas' the other night with a primer paint. Now all I have to do is, well, paint my little buns off! Dean and I have kind of a little wager going on. He doesn't think I'll finish very many, 10 maybe 11. I'd like to prove him wrong (a little friendly banter) Do you think I can do it? Wish me luck, I'd like to at least finish 15-20. I'll keep you posted.
Until then.Hope everyone is feeling healthy happy and having fun.
