It's time to create something wonderful!

Well, I think I've just about recovered from the trauma of the yard sale!
That's a good thing!!!
I really need to deep clean my house but
as an artist,
I know in my heart what comes first....

Here's a sweet baby for you...

For you to be able to save the LARGEST size of my images:

Right click on the image.
Then....Left click the image AGAIN.....
you will now have the FULL SIZED IMAGE.
Now you can right click it to "save image as"
and save it to your own computer.

My art calling is a commission piece for my daughter-in-law's mom...
what exactly would she be called?
I guess there's no official name but guess what???
Her name is Dawn too!!! How funny is that?
I'm working on a piece for Dawn to give to her mother (Emily's grandmother) ~
she gave me a few photographs and a couple of embroidered doilies
that her grandmother had made.
The photos have multiple generations which is wonderful ~

I found a beautiful shadow box at Hob Lob
and love that I have some space to
add dimensional elements ~

Dawn requested this verse be used in the piece, isn't it wonderful???
That's baby Clara that Dawn's mom (Emily's grandmother) is holding ~

I'm sharing in-progress photos...there's still much tweaking to be done
and more elements to be added.

Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday my sweet friends!!!
hugs and love,

I am happy to hear that you have salvaged yourself from the yard sale Dawn - you did really well!
Doesn't that make you feel a little lighter now?
Such a wonderful idea creating a collage with family photos and keepsakes.
So gorgeous!
Have a lovely week,

Happy creating today,too sweetie.

You must feel very honored to be able to create such a loving gift. The multiple generations are so special along with the personal doilies. Blissful...

Hi Dawn, I stopped by to see what you are up to, and it's lovely, as always...but what I wanted to comment about was the time posted on these comments, 2:29am, 3:41am...when do you girls sleep? I know you're a night owl too! It's been a long time since I burned the midnight oil... you go girls! ;-). Love, Penny

That is going to be a sweet and meaningful piece. I know that it will become a family keepsake. Hope that you are feeling better every day with that yard sale behind you.

Dawn, What a pretty piece this will be, and with such deep meaning for generations to come! What fun to create something that you know will last and last!

Dawn, What a great way to use the embroidered doily! I just love those and have collected them for years. Thanks for a great idea!
