A new Farm Animal and "NESTING"!!



Meet "ROXIE LOU HICKS". Oh how I am digging making these little beauties!! This one is named after my grand baby sorta the Roxie comes from her middle name Roxanne and the Lou is from my Kaitlin's middle name which is Louisa. They will all be from the Hicks family!! LOL I decided not to grunge this one up as the blue was so pretty. But I think I still like the grunge better. Right now I am working on finishing up one of my Prim DOG dolls as I can't wait to use that cute material on it!!
 

I have also been "NESTING"!! I made these pretty nest spoons for my Esty Shoppe. I have been watching the birds return slowly and I found some Downing Woodpecker feathers and added them to the nest. I love their feathers sometimes they look like polka dots on them. Oh how I love nature!! I have been takin little tiny walks outside. I had a cold for about a week it was driving me so darn crazy!! But it is gone now but I am still havin a flare up with my bladder disease. I am praying and praying as what the direction God has for me. I don't want to have a pity party as no one comes to them. AND I LOVE PARTIES!! Just not ones where no comes!! So I am kickin my own butt and trying to listen to HIM!! Hmmm.. as I just typed this the sun perked up!! I did a craft show this weekend and I have come to the realization that I am probably not gonna be able to do them much longer. I am praying for direction as I love to be with people and I love to create and sell what I make.
Thanks for listening. I have been praying all morning and watching the birds. I know God has a plan.
XOXO Luv ya all to the moon n back!!
Fran.

Fran I'm so sorry you're havin to deal with that bladder stuff. I know how much you love being out and about... skipping to your Lou in your sassy cowgirl boots. It must get old when you're not feelin up to par and have so many things you want to be doing.... I believe God has a plan... --the waiting part is sometimes so hard though. Keep the faith chicky... Hey check your email again in a bit... have something to ask you...
