Christina from the Gallery just called to tell me that "Seala" the beaded mermaid doll that I had in the Gallery just sold to a woman from Arizona. Thats the second doll that has sold, its......wow, silly as it seems, there's always a feeling of....loss. Each doll has her own personality and grabs you in different ways. How silly...its just a doll!!!! Funny but certain pieces of my beadwork make me feel the same way. Some I don't have feelings one way or the other, and then....certain pieces just make you feel differently. I guess its the time that you put into them. Oh well, back to painting the front door. I was really hoping we would be able to buy a new one this year, but with all that's happened lately, paint will just have to do for a couple more years I guess. Maybe I can get in some beading today..maybe.
Well, so much has happened since my last entry, and I am now two months behind on my bead journal pages and so much more. Spent four and a half wonderful days with our Children and Grandchildren on the Oregon Coast. My Mother, Nephew and two of my Sisters were also there, along with their families. What a wonderful time we had, I can't wait to do it again next year, only with Jack going along also. If it be Gods will. I haven't been able to do any beading since I've been home, due to Jack's health issues, but things will soon be better I am sure and then I can get back to beading with a vengence. I did do a small painting to make a thankyou card to send to all who made the family gathering, but thats as creative as I have been. I am really wanting to get into my beads....soon....soon....I hope.
