I made finger puppets as a gift for two great kids I know.
They are very fun and easy to make!
I was inspired by an artist on Etsy: Abbey Christine.
She makes wonderful puppets of unique movie and TV characters.
Someday I would love her Bob Ross finger puppet. (see here)
Don't forget! There is still time for my latest GIVEAWAY!!

Don't these knees make you smile?
They belong to my grandma. She is now 85 but was 3ish in the photo.
This is my latest GIVEAWAY!
I created this Christmas collage in 2006. It is time to share it!
(size: 8 x 10 inches on masonite board)
If you would like a chance to win, simply leave me a comment.
I will leave the Giveaway open until Sunday evening.
Monday morning, the 20th, I will announce the winner.
Oh, and in the original photo of my grandma she is holding a tomato.
For this collage, I tinted it orange.
My gram was once a wee girl on a farm in Arkansas.
For Christmas, she would get an orange.

I just like to smile. Smiling is my favorite.
-Buddy the Elf
This morning I saw a post by artist, Juliette Crane.
She shared a medley of photos that made her smile.
I smiled, too.
For the past week, this piglet has made me smile!
He is on my desktop...my cellphone...on Facebook.
I love him. I can't help but smile.
My dear friend reminds me to keep smiling.
I do. I will.

The winner of yesterday's giveaway is:
SARA of Sara's Art House!
Many thanks to those who left comments.
I shall do another giveaway soon!
Regarding the bottom photo...
This is one of my favorite Christmas ornaments.
It is a clear plastic star with the photo I cherish inside.
On the left is my older brother.
In the blue one-piece is my older sister.
Me on the right.
My siblings and I were swimming in my grandpa's pool.
He arrived home and came out to say hi.
There we were; three heads bobbing in the water pleading, "Grandpa! Come swim with us!"
We begged and pleaded!
Just when we were about to give up, we hear a sudden, "Here I come!"
My grandpa came flying through the air, diving into the water, clothes and all!
A moment of utter glee!

I am baking cookies for my daughter's dad.
He did something kind for me.
Yesterday, I received an unexpected gift from a landlords!
So lovely! Kind.
The other day, I received love and support when I needed it most!
Blog followers, new and old, have left me wonderful, kind words in comment to my post.
I would like to giveaway this new drawing.
Simply leave a comment.
Tomorrow morning (Friday) I will draw a name out of my Pyrex bowl.
Then I will announce the winner!
Have a wonderful day!

These are some new items! They soon will be in my Etsy store.
I love fabric and simple sewing and wonky stitches.
Plus, creating like this allows me to use my supplies rather than hoard and save them.
The bottom photo is my Holy Family paper doll garland.

when the little day is done
I can fill your well with the Hand of God
and breathe a small breath of Gratitude
linger on the threads that the tiny day has worn
undress the day
and hang her garment of Sun and Doings
in the closet next to my heart
which hangs to the left of your garment of Forgiveness
