Two pillows for the Christmas Fair.

The beautiful albino peacock at the Wildlife Safari in Winston, Oregon, USA. It's been almost one year since we moved here and I can't believe how fast time as gone by. I still enjoy going to the Wildlife Safari and seeing the animals. So amazing to see them in a more natural habitat, running free and wild. Well, mostly wild, they do know when the feeding trucks arrive and they do like when you purchase the feed cups and give them treats.

I'm keeping busy working on a lot of sewing projects for the upcoming Douglas County Christmas Fair at the fairgrounds early December. We (Cathie and I) should find out later this month where our booth space will be located. Hopefully, we will get a booth! YIKES! I freaked myself out!

I would post photos of the sewing projects, but my windows updated awhile back and I lost a lot of photos during the changes. UGH! I'm hoping that Shawn was able to stop the automatic updates from Windows because every single time it updates, my computer gets all messed up and I lose programs, files, and photos. Frustrating to say the least.

That's about it for now. I should be better at keeping up on this blog. But, I'm too easily side tracked these days.

Big Squishy Hugs and Keep Creating!

Been a long time. Actually, I tend to forget that I have a blog. UGH! This is one of my latest Adam Ant portraits. I've started another one in pen & ink stippling. Sadly, I've shoved it to the back burner to work on more Creepy Dolls, and other items for a bazaar sale. Cathie (younger sister) and Cyndia (good friend) and I are hoping to get a booth at the Douglass County Fair's Christmas Bazaar in December 2016. If I'm going to have any stock to sell I need to get busy now! Plus, I need way more than a few Creepy Dolls and Rag-a-Muffin Dolls. HA!

The move to Winston, Oregon has been interesting. I now have plenty of "Quiet Time" to create and relax. It's been very good for my depression swings. The neighbors are quiet and nice. The people I've visited with at restaurants, coffee drive thru's, the museum and Wildlife Safari have been extremely nice and sweet! I've talked to a wonderful lady at the Roseburg Art Center and she was a darling and very encouraging. I'm hoping to join the art center and take some classes soon. To help get my confidence with my art back up. I've lost so much technique and CONTROL wise with my drawing skills. This will help get it back.

Well, this is not getting any more items made and ready for a bazaar sale! Have a great weekend!

Big Squishy Hugs!
