She has been in my mind for a long time and finally she is coming to life. She is constructed out of paper clay. I really love this product but it does not dry very smooth, I smoothed out her body with sand paper. Painting the face always scares the hell out of me, but I am very happy with it. I guess I am getting better at it, but have a long way to go.
This wonderful donation to the thrift store would of sat on display forever since it had a huge ink stain on it. I covered buttons with fabric and sewed them on which covered the ink stain but also added a little fun. So back to the thrift store it goes tomorrow and hopefully home with some one soon...
A great friend of mine saved this old shadow box from the trash for me. After a lot of scrubbing, I cut out paint chip samples and odd-end pieces of paper I have been saving to line it with. I am really happy with the end result. It looks so small in the photo but it rather large.
Wonderful week, skyping and crafting with my sister Gail. Upcycling, old jewerly into new life. I volunteer at a thrift store and get all the old broken pieces of jewelry, it is so much fun to make new items from.
So turning 45 sent me straight o the book store and to the children's section to buy a Fairy book and the Princess of Alyss of Wonderland. Both of which make me very happy. Never to old for what brings happiness!

I volunteer at a non-profit thrift store in Vero Beach Florida. A key project is Viva Kids, a child sponsorship program in the Dominican Republic for poverty stricken children. We support two Children Centers where these children are offered food, education, and medical attention in a loving environment who would otherwise receive none. http://www.facebook.com/pages/To-Every-Nation-Thrift-Store-for-Missions/261564223893655
