I like RAKs(Random Acts of Kindness). These two were made for Lisa, who has just had surgery. I scanned them. looks like the side of the lid was not completely closed. Oh well, at least you can see them. The one on the left is me. I just added cat-eyed glittered glasses for fun.

A few years ago I created some doll patterns for 17 dolls. These include Whimsical Fairies, baby fairies, Whimsical Mermaids, baby mermaids and some Old Fashioned dolls. These patterns are for dolls that are about 3 inches to about 10 inches. I sold many books. If you want one of these books, then email me. I am selling the books for $22.oo and $1.00 for shipping. Patterns are nice and clear and they are easy to make. There are color pages too.

Yesterday I finished these three shadow boxes with fairy clothes on hangers. They each have wings. The black shadow box is about 1.5 in deep and 7 in tall and 5 in wide. For the frames, I used matted frames and altered them. I first added a layer of old story book print. Then I added a light paint. Then I stamped out various curly q's and added layers of paint pens, inks and jewels. These were very enjoyable to make from start to finish.

Since I did not know any of the names of these children that once lived here on earth. I decided to give them each a name and make them part of my art family. I wonder if they look down from Heaven and smile at the name I have given them.
So I started making a b-zillion baby fairy ATCs
I really like how bright and happy they are. Most are on my hand painted papers. I used vintage pictures of children, flowers, glitter, jewels, brads and other embellishments. I will probably use pics of my own children and grandchildren too. I have never met these children. Most of them were born a hundred years before me but the mother and grandmother part of me still loves them and wants them to be remembered.
