I am really missing miniatures and determined to get back to them in January. Enough of real life getting in the way!!!! I miss the great feeling one gets from creating............I'm sure life will run more smoothly if I am too.
I just received an email that had a couple of photos of a toddler girl and boy that I had sculpted a few years ago. A couple of my favorites and I thought I would share them.
I went to a baby reading hour yesterday with my daughter and little Grandson at a local library. They had requested that the babies arrive in costume. It was the sweetest event. So many darling costumes!! Our little Gideon enjoyed himself.
Still really busy with my sweet Grandson and Mother. Finding it hard to get to my miniature world that I love. I do see a dim light at the end of the tunnel though so I feel like I am getting closer!! I can't wait!! Brilliant creative work you are all doing. I love when the opportunity arises looking at all of your accomplishments. So inspiring. In the meantime I am completely smitten with my darling little Grandson Gideon. Probably one of the sweetest babies I have been around. He is so mellow and still smiling all of the time. A really happy boy. He is almost crawling and we are having so much fun seeing all of the changes he goes through. A treat to have a baby in the family again.
GIDEON is doing so well and smiling all of the time. Hard to do miniatures when there is this special one in my life. I am loving being a Grandmother. Thank you for all of the comments from my last post. I was hoping to reply but time slipped away. I have an order for a doll and hoping to start on it soon. My sweet customer has been patiently waiting. Now with this live model I am anxious to see who I can make.
It has been quit a long time since I have had a chance to post anything. 2014 turned out to be a year of ups and downs. My Mother started out last year with some health issues that had her in the hospital twice. Both times it had to do with medication issues but all is well. Everything got sorted and she has been doing fine. We celebrated her 93rd birthday earlier this month. The biggest news is that my daughter(43) announced that she was expecting her first child and the due date was December 14. I was elated about this. I never thought this would happen because of her age. Well, her little one made a surprise entrance on September 28 via an emergency c-section. Baby Gideon weighed 3 lbs. 2 oz. and was 29 weeks along. It was such a surreal experience that we were all dazed when it happened. We have been incredibly blessed though as he was perfect from day one and began to thrive. My daughter was amazing and spent every day going to the hospital NICU nursery and spent her days giving her baby kangaroo care. He finally came home on December 18 and weighs 8 lbs. now. You can imagine how our Christmas was this year. Pure joy!!!! He is darling and my Mother was so thrilled because this is her first Great-Grandchild.
I am the Mother of one daughter and an artist that has become madly passionate about anything miniature. I love collecting other artist's work and sharing mine. I am still in the process of learning about EVERYTHING! THANK YOU everyone for all of the inspiration that you give and for the sharing
