This seems to be the theme of my day. I received an email from my sister with the quote:

"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle"

So when you think some small crappy thing happens to you, like not making it through the stop light or someone taking your parking place or your bra is fitting just way too tight or you actually have to walk into a Starbucks because it isn't a drive-thru...stop and think of the people with real problems and crisis and stop and give thanks to God for the blessings you have RIGHT NOW!!

This doll was commissioned to celebrate a milestone birthday! I started out with a basic large fairy doll kit. I dove into my ever expanding bits and baubles to find the perfect things to capture this woman's personality and spirit.
The quote used is one of my favorites.

"Age is something that doesn't matter unless you are a cheese"

by Billie Burke

Now available in small or large sizes!


The smell of Vicks VapoRub made her think of her mother
and how good a hug would feel right now!

Stressing...say a little prayer

I would first like to welcome you my new blog! This is very exciting for me!! I have been a graphic designer for almost 15 years and I just have to say that building this blog is really giving me a rash! I have also been a website designer so this is particularly frustrating. Why can't I just whip one up and love the way it looks automatically? So for my first post i'm going to bring things back to a more serene level by sharing this prayer:

Saint Theresa's Prayer

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be confident knowing you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

Even if you are not having a particularly challenging moment, this prayer is always a blessing to have on hand.
