"Women of Worship" Series or "WOW"

These are the first of 17 pieces for the "Women of Worship" series I am doing for the Gallery at St. Luke's United Methodist Church Indianapolis, IN. I had thought of calling the series Bible Babes but decided against it. They are all simple Mixed Media Collages that are mounted to a backing and framed. No glass.
Can you guess who she is? Leah

Who is she? Lots Wife.

Any idea who I am? Rahab.

Whoever guesses who these Ladies are will get a special little gift for playing along.
There are 17 in the series so you will get 17 chances.

Just another day....

Feburary is such a short long month. We had some horrible Winter weather and then some Spring weather now back to Winter which I think confuses everyone. Not a whole lot of exciting is happening here. I have just listed these cuties in my etsy shop. I am working on a series to hang in a church gallery called, Women of Worship and will share those photos with you real soon. I am doing 17 and have 12 completed. I am working at the Frame Shop part time which I do enjoy. Just wish I could find a great pair of comfy shoes. A girl with size 11 feet can dream can't she? I don't want to give in to Men's shoes I love my Mary Janes!!! Unitl next time!

Debbie, Carrie and Oprah

Sometime ago Debbie and Carrie, Wy and Naomi, Joan and Melissa came to our city and each Mother and Daughter spoke together in a series. My Mom bought tickets for us to go. I LOVED it. My Mom and I have a strong bond. We are upfront and honest with each other and been through many heartaches together. Through it all we are each others best cheerleaders. It is a different relationship than many Mother & Daughter's I know have. My niece seems to have this going on with her Mother, my Mother, her Mamaw and well me. (My mom and I had lunch with niece Katie yesterday - honest candid conversations :)
So, yesterday when I saw that Debbie and Carrie were going to be on I had to watch. I love Carries honesty and Debbies undeniable love for her. At 78 years old Debbie still worries about her kids. It never ends. If you didnt see it try to catch it online.

snow snow snow

Our LUCY loves to be outside in the snow. Everything must smell different and well it is just so much FUN!
We survived the BIG ice storm of 2011 here in Indianapolis, Indiana. We had a little snow on the ground then we got what seemed like 3 inches of ice on top of that then yesterday 3 to 5 inches of snow depending on where you were. It was beautiful because the snow stuck to the ice covered branches.

Gear head in the snow.

Trees in our neighbors yard. So lovely. I love winter. It seems like everyone complains but I like how winter makes us slow down and stay in and do things we wouldn't do if it was warm and sunny outside. Enjoy your winter wherever you are.

on and around.....

my hutch. Just wanted to share the little Bassett Hound collection on top of the hutch. I love chalkware. Trying not to collect it but, it is so tempting. I made this piece over 8 years ago when I had a show at the Harrison Center. It was about the women in my family. This is my Mom and yes there is a small glass bottled COKE in the shadowbox.

I bought this plate to re-sell and so far it hasn't gotten past my kitchen. Not a scene you would see here in the Midwest. I think I like it because it reminds me of my trip to Maine when I spent 2 weeks taking a workshop at Haystack.


It's amazing what a little Restor A Finish and some windex can do. It is filled with batteries, pencils, pens, envelopes, zip loc bags, kitchen towels and just stuff.
