The Battle of Good and Evil


 Well...
Winter is proving to be a trying season.
I am back to not feeling well again.
A set back~
and haven't been around much...
trying to attend to the needful parts of our lives,
above all.



I did have a couple offerings for Early Work.
I know that I won't have
 as many offerings 
as usual this year,
but I promise
to make the offerings
special and imaginative.


I am so honored to be a part 
of this group
and 
even though this past week
 has been spent
trying to get back to healthy~
I am excited to continue this path. 
I am thrilled for the opportunity to make Halloween year round
and show my work~
along side so many artists 
that I have admired
 for so many years....
AND
I am excited for the opportunity to see
many of YOU!
How wonderful to see and meet 
those of you that I have enjoyed
through the years 
and now can say~
hello,
I'm happy to see you....
THANK YOU
give a hug.

Without you,
I could not
do all of this.




Mourning Dove

The BAD crud.

The crud was looking to be the winner....
but yesterday
 and today I do feel better.
I think a Dr. visit
 will still be in order...
but. I am confident 
that the crud 
will give way.

...and I will be fully back on my path.

My Head In The Clouds


I still have a little sculpting on her,
but she will change into a Mourning Dove for September.
Okay...
I am WAAAAY overdue.
I have tried to settle into a new work schedule.


My wee friends in the Hedgerow have been inspiring me.
I have tried to concentrate on sculpting....
really I have.
It looks like I will schedule
Carpal Tunnel surgery 
if my insurance stays the same.
Of course, 
I have to be different and do 2 surgeries.
One will move a displaced nerve.
so there will be healing time in between.
Nothing major, 
but it will interrupt my work.

Mostly, I have just had a hard time concentrating!
About two years ago,
I wrote of changes 
and hurdles 
that I had to go through.
It wasn't easy... 
but once done,
...and a couple other 
bumps for good measure~
it finally made it possible 
(after 15 years)
to divorce.

Tim and I have been together,
 however we could be,
 for 11 of those years.
and although we both knew that I would eventually divorce...

I was NOT prepared for this!!!
(you may want to scroll down to the bottom of the page and stop the music on the music video to hear this)

I had no clue!

On a visit North to see my Mom,
Tim asked her permission for my hand.
Both knew that passing on 
her engagement ring 
would mean so much
(I know my Dad was watching!)
~*~
Only my youngest ( now dubbed 007)
and my Mom knew...
So during
the Walsh Family Christmas Party,
Tim called everyone's attention for what I thought was Santa coming...
silly me.

My invitiation arrived!
A few days later 
(and my head in the clouds)
I received a very special invitation
for Bewitching Peddlers of Halloween!
Making another dream even more real.
I am so
VERY blessed!

I really need to make one for me....
I'm still having a hard time fully
concentrating...
as I adjust 
to full time HALLOWEEN creating...
and 
plan a wedding.
I'm trying to plant my feet firmly on the ground...
but when I think of all that has happened and is happening,
I am afraid my head is still in the clouds!
