My grandson plainted a garden in my yard. He really is doing a great job.

I made him a scarecrow just for fun.

My grandson came to live with me about a mouth ago.

Things didn't work out with his stepfather. He is a great kid and really helps me alot, as I was all alone. He moved in right in time for cutting the grass and plainting. Tim always liked work outside and now he can.

I'll let you know how the garden grows.

I love Spring. This is a tree in my back yard. If only it could stay this way longer. Spring is a time of new things. This is the the time for growing and being happy. Summer is to hot and I stay inside more. Go out and enjoy the new life each day.

My Story

I have been crafting since I was a little girl. When the lady at the chicken farm would give me the printed feed sacks. My mother made my dress's and I used the leftovers to make things. I was about 10 years old an started sewing, with my grandmothers helping hands. About 2 years ago I started sewing dolls. I was working for a fabric shop and fell in love with so much fabric. I had to find a use for it. I no longer work for the shop, but still have a lot of fabric stored away.

I also love to paint folk art pictures when time will allow.

My real true love is sculpting papier mache figures. I started about twenty years ago and have sold to shops all over the United States, Canada, and Europe. I am best known for my Christmas and Halloween figures.

I use Celluclay instant papier mache and Creative paper clay to sculpt each figure. They only can air dry and it takes up to a week. When drying is complete I then paint and antique each figure.

I will post pictures of my work from time to time.
