I am on the edge of my chair awaiting the release of the next issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors and Studios magazines, as I will be featured in both!! Gypsy Cats make their debut in Cloth Paper Scissors and our Art Bodega, Matt and myself are in the Studios Issue. You can pre-order both by clicking on the icons to the right sidebar. (If you click on "contents" of CPS you an get a glimpse of my kitties!) And I will be opening an Etsy shop soon with Gypsy Cats for adoption, among other Deb Did It's!!

Once again, Cloth Paper Scissors has inspired me to create some new techniques and gifts.The Peace jackets were born the day after Inauguration as I listened to the speech over and over, filling my heart with hope and change. I wrote notes and quotes which are handwritten along the border of some of the mini quilts. And the little book was a gift for my friend Frances who always adds extra color to my own life.The pages are made from scraps of fabric, felt and my handpainted papers. The magazine features an article how to make this Fabric Treasure Book. And don't forget to look for me and my Gypsy Cats in the next Cloth Paper Scissors issue coming out at the end of this month!! go forth and create!

In the wee hours before daylight as I waited for the coffee to finish brewing, my bleary eyes focused on my first valentine of the day from Matt. His precious strong loving hands tore the shape of the hearts and his handwritten love notes wrapped me in his loving arms, even as he lay sleeping in the next room! I begin to look around on my fridge and my kitchen is full of love!

I am a Mom. I am always worried and wondering. I am twisting my hair. I am drinking wine too early today. I am pacing. I am burning candles and incense. I am nervous. I am proud. I am hopeful, confident and supportive. I am a Mom. My son is re-enlisting The Army today to return to his calling, his talents and his strength...a Scuba Diver. The above photos were taken on his one year tour of duty in Iraq. I am...because he is.
