Black Girls

One of my Black girls is going to Ugonda.  A college student ordered a black doll to send to her sister in her home of Ugonda.  I'm so excited for the shelf sitter she picks with her round head sculpted feet, hands, lips and nose and cream vintage lace unders.  Hand stitched arms and legs, black wool yarn hair, dressed in a prim dress with a rusty bell on the bodic. Hand painted eyes give these girls the look of hope. She comes signed, sealed and with a hand written prim name tag for only $39.99 +sh. come by my booth in the shop at 1St Emporium 112 W 1st in La Junta, Colorado.
 I hope to someday travel to a far away lands to experience the world they live in with dirt floors and red soil that never comes off the soles of their feet. The extream poverty is more then we can comprehend here in America...  I hope we never come to that place.  Be thankful for the home you have and the food and clean water you have avaliable to you and be grateful for the simple things in life.
Im thankful for the beauty of life this is for all who are struggling for whatever reason right now...

If all the music died
And the music makers ceased,
I think you'd stand and sing
A hymn of hope and peace.

If nights of doubt and fear
Against the light were hurled,
I think you'd light a candle
And stand against the world.

If winds of changing times
Uprooted trees and sod,
I think instead of mocking,
You'd stand in praise of God

The beauty of your life
Is like a work of art
Inscribed by Memory's hand
Upon my grateful heart.

 I love this poem by Perry Tanksley

 I'm always excited to see other peoples creations it gets my juices to flow so I can come up with my own inspirations.  Here are some ideas for you to check out and see what you come up with.  Make today the best day to create something from your heart. 

This has been an amazing week for me. I have been struggling with my older sewing machine quite frankly its  just  plain  wore  out.  But I made it through a card project that I do every year for the Rocky Mountain Confrence which was the this past weekend.  The "cards" are a THANK YOU NOTE for each of the workshop leaders and organizers who volunteer their time and talents to teach all who attend more about how we can serve in our local pregnancy centers.  Each year I do something new and challenging. As I prepare for months I look at all kinds of different art forms learning something new and exciting moving from my comfort zone into something other then doll making. This year what I did was combind my artwork with that of the keynote speaker Angie Tingles artwork and made these beautiful works of art each one created with a speaker in mind and a plan to bless him or her.  Well part of the blessing was mine before I left and was craming the night before on the project when a friend brought me a new sewing machine!!!!!! how awesome is THAT!  God is so good to me I Just want to burst some times and shout it form the mountain tops... oh but I can't yell or shout verbably yet or speak God has silenced me for now, for this season and his purpose but inside I am praising my Lord for a beautiful new machine its so purdy.
Prim blessings to you today make today the best day to create,
