Too long

It has been way too long since I posted! I didn't realize! I've been so busy. My Wednesday art classes with the home school kids is going great. My best and most enthusiastic student is 3 years old and just an absolute delight! I can't wait to see her. This past week, I put plastic on the floor and we did shaving cream painting. There just isn't anything better about teaching than watching the shear joy of someone being who they were created to be... and this little one is an artist through and through. Before she left, I was kneeling down talking to her and she leaned over, put her arms around my neck and kissed me on the cheek. I melted. I wanted to bring her home with me! LOL!

This past week, I won a couple of bids on Etsy with the Alchemy section. It's where people have something they want made, they post it along with their ideal price and you can bid for the jobs. I won to jobs and just completed them both. One was for very simple cloth baby dolls (9 inches) along with blankets and diapers for them and the other for a tomato Halloween costume for a 2 year old! Remember I have to take pictures with my computer camera since mine was stolen and my husband took his camera back to his house so, these pictures are not so great but it's all I've got.
These things are a little more "crafty" but they've been fun to do. I did create the patterns and everything from scratch so they are sorta' art projects! LOL! I loved doing the costume. I've got bids in on a couple other jobs right now for costumes.

Some stuff going on in my personal life that I can't really talk about here but pray for my family, will ya'? I'd appreciate the prayers.

Two weeks ago, I started attending a very intense support group that will go for the next 6 months being led by my therapist. Homework this week took me hours to do. Got it all typed in my computer and tried printing only for my printer to die... I mean DEAD! Wahhhhh! On top of homework for this group each week, I have homework for my Bible Study class as well. I feel like I'm in school.

Well, it's been an exhausting day so I'm heading for bed. Tomorrow will be super busy with counseling in the morning and group tomorrow night and a ton of other stuff in between... physically and emotionally exhausting just thinking about my list. I'll try to do better about posting!

Your tomato costume is adorable, Angie....and so are your dolls.
Your children's art classes sound wonderful ...and fulfilling.
..and of course you and your family are still in my prayers.

The tomato costume is enchanting. The dolls are very sweet. I hope you get some time to relax a little. I'm sending love and prayers.
