Wooly Friday!

Felted wool sweaters on a sunny Spring day, one of my favorite moments! Photoshop can be fun, but I prefer C-O-L-O-R

Inspiration for Deb Did It

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!

Love Notes

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!

from my heart to yours

keeping my hands busy

I am selling these Peace Jackets as fast as I can make them. It is a good thing right now to keep my hands busy, and remain mindful of peace, hope and change...for the better.

I am. because he is.

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.

the message of this video says to me "Why can't we just all get along?"
these kids were running to the beach, but Sister stopped to give Brother a pretty leaf!
