In the works

I am wrapped up in a wonderful project today. Actually it's been a few weeks in the making but today was a dessert day, I finished my final ink drawings and am ready for the printer. Below is a sneak peek...
Just a little snippet of a new paperdoll for someone's very special granddaughters! Will be posting the whole sha-bang after January 31st. It's a joy to feel energized by your projects, I love it! Have been listening to this great song, hope it calms your soul like it does mine. Have a great weekend friends.

And so we begin...

Happy New Year!
Hope you've gotten off to a great start this 2009! I gotta say the New Year was fabulous but the ensuing week after was like the let down after church camp. I've had my pity party and now I'm ready to tackle my 2009 resolution list. It's just one resolution: DO.I'm a Thinker, Dreamer, Planner. It's seems like I rarely get to the DOING. SO! With my husbands help and anyone else who'd like to encourage and spur me on I'm getting things done this year.First order: Clean out and organize our filing cabinet!
And hallelujah, it's done!

And how about this to excite your organizing dreams- I found a $100 Savings Bond tucked away in those jumbled files last night! Yahoo!
Our Christmas was spent eating really great food with all my cousins, aunts and uncles down in Houston. The big surprise came from my PawPaw, who announced that he is engaged! I'm so excited for him, Mary is such a sweet lady! What a hoot, with four cousins in their twenties we'd have expected the engagements from that corner of the family! I enjoyed the week after Christmas in Albany visiting one of my dearest and oldest friends. There's nothing like being with your worn in friends, having that same shared background and easy understanding. We had some good times cooking and lounging about while the snow piled down! Winter Wonderland! But I'm very glad to be back in the South, 7 may be great as a pair of jeans but not on the thermometer! Also read this book while traveling in the airport. Oh man! ... if you haven't read it... wow... it blew me away. When my friend gave it to me I wasn't too excited about a romance novel, just haven't read those. But my life has been so impacted from this story. I came home from Albany feeling like a new and profoundly different woman. Don't think I can do the book justice by trying to explain it or what I felt. I hope you get a chance to read it, would love to hear what you think about it.

...a few of the projects I made during the Christmas hustle and bustle. I lost my camera at the beginning of December, sadly I lost photos of some very cute paintings and journals. These pics are straight from my camera phone- sorry for the fuzziness. From top left to right- Itty bitty journal for my sister Nichole, finished table for the Googe family, the beginnings of Dana's journal, growth charts waiting to dry, Baby Sabrina's first Christmas, matching chair for the Googe family.

Hope you had a wonderful New Year's celebration! It was one fantastic break for me! I'll be updating soon as soon as I'm settled in from my travels...
