Promises Kept

I am so amazed at the feedback that I have received on my paper journey. I have thought long and hard as to how I want to walk this path that has gone before me...and make it truly my own.  If you had asked me a year ago, if I would be working with my designs in this way, I would have thought that I didn't have a clue or want to do anything like this. I promised my Father, before he passed away, that I would share more than my dolls...I would share my sculpting and drawing. As I bring these wee mousies to life as ornaments, I see that beyond a promise kept, I am growing in directions that I would have never guessed. I am loving it along with adding a creative dash of my heart to them. I wonder now.....did he know?

ah, tis true, so often our parents know our desires even better than we do. They have walked farther along life's path, and know their children's hearts! Jo

Stacey, yes...art and talent are meant to be shared. Your father must be so proud of you, looking down from heaven. That is something I always try to think of too...my dear father, passed away too many years ago before we had a chance to know one another. But maybe he knows me better now seeing me from above. Wishing you a wonderfully creative week...

He just may have Stacey! Your father must have loved you very much and new you very well. I haven't had anyone tell me that but in the last year I too have branched out and it's amazing.

Thank you all so much! Art is always a journey and I love so many media. I simply loved to draw, but now I see so many possibilities. I can't help but think that there are smiles from above. These wee mousers will be part of my ornament offerings for the Simple Goods Show in November. When I return, I will be working on a few more along with some others. I will be working on lots of new designs for the 2012 line of paper goods available at :
