Hello Again!

It has been so long since the last post. Much has changed, much remains the same. Spent two years working on a digital design degree, became a Grandmother for the first time, still working on perfecting my photography, still working with my partner at the real estate company using everything I learned over the past few years. Still looking forward to the time when art and creating comprise most of my day! But for the moment I am happy to spend as much time with this cute little guy as I can!

Here is another view - aren't they just the cutest?

Time ~ where does it go?

It has been forever since I posted and will probably be some time before I do again. I am now working with my partner in his real estate company full time, going to school full time and have been planning my Daughter's wedding and just hosted her Bridal shower yesterday. I wanted to share the "princess shoes" I made as part of the table decorations.

Amazing blooms

More spring time inside. My Amaryllis in bloom.

Delicate beauty.

Amazing detail

I am always amazed at the beauty in nature, how perfect in detail is God's hand.

Have a great day.

Sentimental Handbags

These are a few more hand bags that my Sweet Friend Kelly and I worked on together.
This red one is made from a vintage, velvet dress that belonged to a friends Mother. It was hand beaded at the top with a picot trim and then hand beaded fringe added on both sides of the bottom. Then lined with a beautiful black fabric. The next one was felted with a hand beaded spiral rope strap and beaded loop closure with one of my vintage mother or pearl buttons. Kelly lined it with vintage fabric from another dress. Kelly's friend is giving these bags as gifts to her daughter, sister and nieces. What a great way to share the love and memory of a family member through a piece of clothing remade into soemthing that can be held and enjoyed, rather that hanging in the back of a closet. Our hope is that these bags become another family heirloom.

If You want to see more of them you have to pop over and visit her blog here Fitzu she is an amazingly creative lady and great friend.

The Angel's Day

This is my Angel's birthday. She would have been 33 today.These photos were taken in August of 2001, when she was 25, by our friend Stewart who is a professional photographer.I am so thankful to have them.

This is one of Stews favorites, it was a long day and they were getting a bit silly, something happened and she burst out laughing and he took this picture, it stuck with him that it was such a genuine, joyful laugh - that we miss.

We lost Amy in October of that same year, the pain has eased but the feeling of loss is still great.

Happy Birthday Sweet Angel, we love you.
