the #adoption process; counting the cost
When I was in Haiti a five years ago in the orphanage where
we were adopting from
(the little girl we were in process of adopting)
I met another adoptive mama
there meeting her little girl for the first time!
(I got to witness the beauty of it!)
She is a beautiful spunky gal
that is now on her
of a little boy Belief (from Congo).
She also has 3 young boys at home.
(she is going for a 6 pack~ LOL)
I know all too well the cost (and heartbreak) of adoption
Here is where love dolls began~
When I first met Dieunka, she didn't have any toys
so I made her a doll
the back story of
the Love Doll began with my own adoption
which if you are a long time reader
or know me in real life
know ended in unfortunate heartbreak
by someone we called a friend
(due to fraud, long painful story)
the adoption process is not an easy journey!
I don't want to ruin the happiness of Melanies' current adoption
(So the TELLING of my story is for another day)
Mels' family is
to fund raise
and I'd like to help them
(and its healing for me to make these dolls for the purpose of adoption)
I've made this art doll
(she has been named Zoe)
that she is going to raise $ with~
The stages of her birth
(and her adoption story coming soon)
There is another to come as
I'm making her another doll as well.
Pictures coming soon~
adoption fundraising ideas
art with purpose

What is a #Hipster? or Pop Culture #Embroidery
I had to get a googlecation
(educated by google)
on what a
I obviously needed to know
I mean I recently seen #hipster
tagged on a friends instagram...
which drew me to the ?
my first hit landed me
hmmm..then I clicked onto
the video below.
hey I kinda like the groove~
uhhuh getting a better understanding
Then I start reading the comments below the video.
hipsters got haters
then I accidentally hit something
and the video below
interrupted the first video
Right when they were getting interviewed on the street
My fan in the RV kicked on and I couldn't hear
so I had to go plug in the external speakers
then go back to hear what they said~
Can I conclude hipsters don't want to be hipsters?
After watching the video, pausing at the drama of hipsters
I was actually in the middle
of searching pop culture embroidery
because I'm photographing
and don't know what to label them as..
when I realized
I know nothing
about Pop Culture
and/or what a hipster is, nor
how to label
HMMMM Does that make me a hipster?
Ehhh probably not because I'm 42.
(uh I think)
Sheesh my mind is as tangled as my embroidery floss.
Stay tuned my original embroidery designs
coming up next.
an artists mind
embroidery hoop art
how do i define
unique embroidery designs
what is a hipster

Frida Kahlo guitar Assemblage& State of Decay Polaroids
This is an older piece but one of my favorite assemblages still to date.
My oldest son reclaimed the thrown away guitar
proudly bringing it to me to "make art with".
He was about 8 at the time. (now 18)
My sons are so sweet~
My grandma has these beautiful peonies
and my sweet youngest son (14) picked me some.
It's been rainy and cool
which is always my favorite painting days
so I'm working on
Life is beautiful!
film is not dead
