Just somthing to think about this week. Really think about it.
We have had a really hard weekend.My daughter"s mother-in-law past away this past friday evening. She was only 49 years old. My grandbabies will miss her terribly.They spent a lot of time with her and Debie was always there for my Ashleigh.
There are times in my life that I thought had to be the hardest things I had to do.But I'm telling you, when you have to sit down with your little 3 year old and 5 year old and explain to them that somone they loved so much is not coming back home.............To date , that was the hardest thing I had to participate in.
This is a picture of them the night before we had to break there little hearts.
We love these girls so much and so does Zen and Lucy........

My Box is, lets see how do I put it? Mild.......Compared to most others in the class. Most everyone there had done this kind of art before or had taken Michaels class and I just had no clue what to expect or how to really prepare.Well I'll tell you I do now.I cant wait to start my next box!
Here is my project.My vision was to bring old metals that we've found in the alleyway outside our building together with new metals that we cast.I love the mixture of metals.Also objects that are very meaningful to us.
Here in the jar I have a few of Lucy's baby teeth. I also wanted to show somewhat of the prosses of casting by having not only the cast piece(the skull) but also the same piece in wax.The eye I made out of the new copper clay.I'm working on a few of these as pendents for B&B.
I painted this picture when we lived in Port Townsend. Lynn,Tony and I would spend a lot of hours up on a bluff painting and journaling.I love this little guy.Its called Miracles Happen.
There was a time in my life when my daughter and I didnt talk.Out of the blue one day she called and the next day I painted this.......Miracles do happen so I wanted this to be a part of the box.I think it fits and I love the colors. it was a happy day......
The finished piece.........
The other students where just amazing and there work is inspiring.Here are a few pictures of there work.
So many talented people and what a great group to work with.
A big thanks going out to Michael.You've help to open my mind/imagination to a new vision.The wheels are turning and I can see my work evolving. Thank you so much.
This was the best Birthday ever!............
