Medicine Dolls, Fairy Godmothers and Hats!

Weeehooooo!!!!  Chemo is over and the prognosis is awesome!

I want to thank you all for hanging with me and sending all the prayers love and light! You are AWESOME! 
All the notes and cards helped keep my spirits up during the chemo. :)  And the hats too! OH THE HATS!!
 I've had SO much fun with them! See....

My lovely daughter made this for me!
You can find more of her creations at
The Soul Shine Shack 
But any way.. lol .. I'm back among the living! I'm up and around a ready to be busy creating again. In fact, I am enrolled in two awesome classes at the moment.

One is taught by the talented Deb Wood. It's at A for Artistic and it's a Fairy Godmother full body sculpting class.  I'm not so sure I'm cut out for full body sculpting, but giving it a try is one of the thongs on my bucket list, so I'm going for it. I'll be updating you on my progress here, no matter how questionable it is. LOL ( and that should be no reflection on Deb's teaching! She is great! I just don't know that I have the patience or the light hands to do that kind of work.)
 Here is what Deb's Fairy Godmother looks like:
I'll be adding photos of MY version later... It could be quite the frightening adventure! 

My second class, Medicine Dolls, is with the amazing Barb Kobe.
It's a class on making healing dolls, which Barb assures me that I already do. LOL  Who knew! 
I'm learning so much about intention, symbolism and what healing truly is. 
If you are interested in Healing Dolls, Barb has a wonderful blog called The Art of Healing Dolls or hop on over to her page and take the Medicine Doll Workshop. It's a very deep learning experience.

I'll be posting the first of my Medicine Dolls later. I think she definitely deserves a post all her own. 

So that is what I'm up to at the moment; just getting back into the swing of things. Oh and I'm on a mission to update my web site / blog / Etsy store and integrate it with Wild Wimmin.  I'm entirely too spread out. Time to start the new year with SIMPLICITY and PEACE. Plus that makes it easier for you to come hang out with me. 

So check back again soon and see what's happening in my world. 

Moonbeams & Blessings!
