Getting Ready to Leave!

Gosh! There's so much to do before I leave for Hawaii!
I awoke the other morning with an idea to make my Mom a present before I leave. It will be a little bouquet of Flower Power People! This is quick and simple! I plan to write a little note and attach it to each flower, kind of like an Advent Calendar, so she can read a "note a day" from me while I am gone!
Here's a picture of my dear sweet Mom, sculpting one of her favorite newspaper cartoon characters, the little boy from the "Flying McCoys".
... and finally, because I'm a little bit crazy, I plan to make a "Two Hour" purse (which will probably take me twenty-two hours!!!) out of this beautiful fabric and take it with me on my trip!

Yikes! I leave in a week and a day!!! I better get started!



  1. I wandered over to your blog. Found you on the 2009 One World One Heart Giveaway site. After watching the movie Julie and Julia recently, I've decided to try and go through the ENTIRE OWOH list, from beginning to end, in 90 days and connect/reconnect with all the artists and blogs that truly inspire me! Your blog is amazing and really resonated with me!

    A bit about me. I'm a mystery writer, jewelry artist, and college professor. Yes, and a Gemini, if you couldn't tell! Here is my blog, where I blend my mystery writing and jewelry craft:
    My first mystery Keeping House: A Madame President mystery just came out on Amazon.
    Take care and as Julia Child might say, "Bon Blogging!"

  2. Hi, Terrilee! Yes, my Madame President has three cats, all named after queens: Victoria, Cleo, and Sheba! There will be a cat in each book in the series in the featured house. Thanks for visiting my blog! Denise
