There once was a little girl who had a little sister who sometimes had a hard time falling alseep at night. And when her sister would crawl into her bed and tell her she couldn't sleep, the little girl with a not-so-great imagination would tell her little sister stories about rainbows and unicorns and princesses who lived in far-away lands where there was only ever bright colors, blue skies, happiness, and flowers galore. (This was modeled after a book that we had....about....you guessed it....a unicorn and the fairy tale land where the unicorn lived....) So when the little girl saw the very ugly unicorn, she knew she must have it for her little sister, and she knew in her mind what a very beautiful unicorn it would be when she finished breathing new life into it and made it look like it did in her mind....a somewhat scary place to be a lot of the time.
One of the very many reasons why the little girl with the little curl loves her Mr. Perfect so dearly is that when she told him the story about, and explained that she saw the very ugly unicorn as bright and beautiful in her mind, and that she would make the unicorn be beautiful like that if all turned out as according to her imagination, he very quickly stated that he had no doubt that that would be the case. Ahhhh...to be believed in is a wonderful thing!
So here is a sneaky peaky at the ugliest thing the little girl with the little curl has purchased for $3.00 in as long as she can remember.......
You'll have to stay tuned to see the final outcome. Cross your fingers that it is as neat as she hopes it will be! Her sister deserves it! *And today is her little sister's birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Little Sister! I love you!!!!!*
And to follow up from yesterday, even though you slackers didn't help em decide on the color, here is THE ONE....up and ready to adorn some lucky person's walls by going to www.etsy.com and searching for the username: drawingandcoloring.
Good night! :)

I'm working on this lil guy up there. I've been singing "Rubber Ducky, You're the One..." for like a week now. Just ask Kevin. And Anna....poor kids have had to listen to me belt that at the top of my lungs spontaneously 1,000+ times. For real. ANYWAYS...I'm taking a vote....which color do I use to write the quote with? I was thinking blue, as was Mr. Perfect, but then I was also thinking orange....and then Kate said yellow when I asked her. So, please, leave me a comment and help me decide what color to make it. In exchange, I will show you the finished product, almost guaranteed to be a cute one. (It is in my head, at any rate!)
This now adorns the wall in my bedroom. I've had the frame and mat for a while....the license just seemed to be what fit, and then I used some vintage wedding-y paper to cut the letters out. I'm in love. Mr. Perfect hasn't seen it yet. :)
For a long time...well, since Anna was born on Grammy's birthday in Heaven, I've taken special notice of all things breast cancer. When I saw this display today at the gas station, I knew it would be a part of my blog post. Of course now, not only do I think of Ang and RaRa and Grammy, and also my mom's good friend, Michele, but of Sarah. So many people this nasty disease affects. I hope and pray for a cure to be found every day.

This has part of the words from the hymn...."all things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small....the Lord God made them all....." There's more to it than that, but you get the idea, and I'm too tired to use all of my brain right now to list the whole thing.

So, my dreams are coming true...my studio now has shelves, and mostly the walls are up, my abby-height workbench is there, I have a door....hey, I even have a DOG that stays in there with me while I work! I canot believe that this is happening for me, and I cannot wait to see where it goes!!!!! I'm so excited to be doing the flea market next weekend, but it is supposed to rain for all three days. Please join me in praying that the rain decides to stay away so that this can be successful...I really NEED it to be successful!
About the lil sketchy sketch up there....I drew that while waiting on Kevin to get his hiney handed to him at one of his games when it was too cold to be out and watching....his number is 6, and this is just what I sat and occupied myself with.....I like it.
Gotta get busy...lots to do today, and I have my lil "helper", NannaBaby, with me! Woot woot!

It's raining today here, and the high might reach 70....that's a shame considering I have a slight suburn from the last two days....it amazes me how the weather can change so much in such little time!

I took the "Life is Good" sign for Dad...I think that's where I got my rosey outlook from! :) Thanks, Dad!
And I absolutely LOVE the lil purse above...I didn't buy it, but I wanted to! Unemployment has its perks..but shopping isn't one of them!
And this is a work in progress...I started it before we left to come to the mountains, and it will be finished in time to be on display and for sale at the flea market this coming weekend! Woot!
