Another Sunrise

I really do enjoy my morning walks on the beach. The beach is always changing. A shrimp boat. They are often off the coast in the early morning hours.
Lots of seaweed washing up on shore. Here today gone tomorrow.
The birds run in out with the waves almost as if it's a game.
A little crab watching my every move. Ready to retreat into his hole at any moment. I keep my distance, so he runs to the waters edge and then back to his home. He does this over and over again. I keep thinking the water will get him, but he seems to know just how far each wave will break
It is so quite in the morning. An occasional tourist wanders up with coffee in hand. A surfer or two will come out to check the waves and many will catch a few before starting their day. It is never boring living by the sea. Everyone has their place of comfort and this is mine. I find inspiration here. I found myself totally taken with the seaweed. It is really beautiful. I am thinking of a piece of jewelry as I study this plant lying in the sand.

Another Doll In The Works

Another doll in the making and she wants to be finished. I keep asking her what she wants to wear and I get nothing back. I do know that she wants to be natural with her pail skin, so lets go with that!The gathering has taken place.

Now we will see how much of this stuff will be used. I thought it might be fun for some of you to see if she turns out the way you think. I have an idea, but that means nothing. Last year around Christmas I was just taken with all that glitters. That is my idea! Glitter!

Freeform Crochet

There is just something about freeform crochet. My grandmother taught me to crochet around the age of seven. I remember it like it was yesterday. I thought it was the coolest thing in the world to take a hook and string and the stitches would make a fabric. I would sit for hours playing with the yarn. My dolls were all dressed with my creations. I did not care that some stitches were lose and some too tight. I thought is was beautiful and Barbie never looked better. "LOL"

The basket in the background is getting a freeform makeover.

Angel Painting

A few weeks ago, I was hit with one of life's big trials, the kind that makes you question your faith and wonder if the faith that you have will be enough to overcome the challenges that are ahead. A good cry and lots of asking "why", all the things you do when the heart is breaking, but the weeks are fading one into another and God's promises are at work. The faith of a mustard seed is all we need! I have missed keeping up with all of my blogger friends, I look forward to reading what you have all been up to. It's time for me to get back to work, so I am off to a few craft stores for supplies. See you soon!
