2 WIPs

This is my first new doll for quite awhile-I am really liking the light in her eyes-I have no idea where the purple came from in her face-It is done completely in Water Color Pencils- Derwent brand-I LOVE them! Thanks Sherry!! She is not done by any means and sorry but she is Nekked!!!!!!
And this is the start of a collage painting I am doing with a Friend-we are taking turns challenging each other in different art forms-we then gift what we made to the other.  The leaves are coffee filters and the trunk is torn newspaper-i also sprinkled sea salt on the paint when wet to make fun "spots" in the paint
This is not nearly done either
Thanks for all your support gang-I love you all!!!!!

Fargo Street Fair

wonderful shops along the way!
Look at all the booths!
This is Vonnie Nolte's booth f hair accessories! a wonderful tool to make very cool neat buns! i have used mine every day since Thursday!
A look down the other way
One of my favorite yarn and fiber shops Boucle!!!!

A tray of polished rock ready to used as pendants from Dan Rocks & Rolls from Minot ND

I bought this from Susan Braun-Funky Picasso~ from Leeds ND it says "Black is Black and White is White and She Still Saw Polka Dots and Stripes and Even Plaid" My sweetie always says "everything is black and white-there is no grey" I found it funny!!!
I also got this one from her
Isn't that great!!!!!!
I had such a blast with my Friend Christy!!!

A Birthday Surprise!!!

I arrived home after work on a very rainy day 2 days before my 43rd birthday. As i walked up the steps i soon noticed a small wet box sitting outside my door-the box was quivering.  I thought-Oh no ! Has someone left a puppy or a kitten under that box!! I carefully lifted up the box and much to my surprise i was greeted by a wise looking wee crone-she smiled and said :"My dear-i have been waiting for you!!" I took her in and dried her off and set her on the counter to dry and warm up-I went to also change clothes and when i came back she had made sun tea-the rain had stopped and the sun had come out suddenly!
She then went on to inspect my herbs-i asked her her name and she replied "That is for you to decide my dear." I asked her where she came from and how she good here? she replied "I was brought here on the back of a snowy owl from my dear sisters home," whom is your sister I asked? "Hermonie Goodwith of course!" She replied! ahh yes I could see the resemblances!

Then see saw my dog Tillie~~ I said she probably wont let you pet her-she is very shy.  She replied "I do believe we understand each other,"  she waddled over to Tillie and much to my amusement this happened
Then we went into my room so I could come up with a good and proper name for her-I had some ideas and I turned to speak with her. This is what i saw

"My dear"she said"why so many unfinished sisters?' I said I just have so much to do-I do a little at a time.She said "Oh I understand-I will help you with this!"  Then I told her the name I had chosen for her. She giggled with delight and said "Perfectly wonderful my dear!!"
So Maybelle Rayne Goodwitch settled down in the rocking chair to rest after her long journey

She is still urging me to work on my creative processes!! and I do believe it is working!!
