Oh my they're multiplying!

Azalea with her new Gingermelon dolly.  I had to make her one, as she busted out in tears when I told her she had to put mine back.

Anna's sister was made during a KraaftShaack #kraaftingittogether live Google event on this past Saturday. host Heather Kraafter has a Patreon account that I belong to and love being apart of.  She can also be found on YouTube with lot's of great art videos.  She has mohair hair and I made her a pair of shorts too with French knots to decorate the bottom edge. I named her Bianca (close to Blanca Spanish for White).  These little Gingermelon pocket dolls are so addicting just sitting and hand sewing the felt dolls while listening to programs or a book.

I received a tin of Polychromos Faber Castel, colored pencils for Christmas from my husband and had fun trying them out in my mixed media book. I really do love them they lay down very nice and are vibrant a color.

This is a Patreon bonus sketch from CeeCee' Creations 12 days of Christmas art work. She does amazing artwork and is very generous with her time and videos (also on YouTube) that she makes for her patrons.  She has an Etsy account that she sells the sketches and artwork.

Happy New Year 2017

 Can you believe it we are already to the 5th of this month and I'm just know getting around to posting to my blog...   Connie McBride @ CDA has issued a challenge that will include a blog hop when we complete our assignments/projects/etc...  LOL! anyway I've joined it so will be posting my projects here and it will be a lot of fun.

These are a few of the things that I made for the holiday gifts and I had a lot of fun doing them. I made the Box for my Anne doll from an old USP shipping box to hold her.

A gift for myself a pattern from Gingermelon.  She was very fun to do and I'm going to make a sister for her.

Angela Anderson did a painting class on you tube but I decided to make a colored pencil and Black ink rendition of it using glitter to sparkle the snow and antlers.
More colored pencil drawings for Christmas cards this year.
David found this wonderful brass and beveled glass frame and I made a Lion picture to put in it for my sisters Christmas present.
The snowman the little 4" doll ornament and the 8" doll are original patterns that I made for gifts this year, along with the ornament....

Happy Cinco De MayoEveryone!!!!
This is a Mission Inspiration art journal page for April and I enjoyed the challenge of doing it.

 The Salt Cedar or Tamarack as some call it are in bloom as the Mesquite trees are fully leafed out.
 The Mexican Bird of Paradise are blooming as well and the bee's are a buzzing...
Petunias have come up in a pot that I had them in last year they are one of my favorite flowers and remind me of my momma's front porch area where she seemed to always have them aroun
