~Things Change~

If Ya Have Watched Any Of My YouTube Videos...
Ya'll Notice Many Times...
I Start Workin' On A Canvas...
Sayin' What It's Gonna Be...
For Instance...
A Couple Of Times...
I Said I Was Workin' On Creatin'...
A "Cow Head"...
Both Times Those Canvases...
Ended Up Being...
Florals...

I Normally Have An Idea...
Of What I'd Like To Try...
But, More Than Not...
The Backgrounds...Lead The Way...

My Latest 2 Canvases...
Proved All The Above To Be True..
I Had Recently Done A...
"Boston Terrier" Canvas...
And Was Gonna Create...
A Couple Of Small "Boston Terrier" Canvases...

After Buildin' Up The Backgrounds...
I Walked Away From 'em While They Dried...
When I Returned...
I Saw THE TWINS!

Definitely NOT Boston Terriers...
LOL

I Have Realized...
Over The Past Year Since...
I Have Started This Journey Into...
Mixed Media...
Just Goin' With The Flow...
Is The Way To Go!!

Enjoy!

~At This Age~

I'll Be 60 This Year...
When I Started Hickety Pickety...
I Was 29...
Back Then All My Business Was Done...
On The Phone Or By Snail Mail...

I Marveled Over When Gals...
Would Call And Order From Me...
And Share That They Were 60 And Older...

I Thought Of Those 60 And Older...
Only Interested In Quilting...
Or Crocheting Doilies...
eeeeeks!

Why I Thought There Was An Age Limit...
On Crafting...
I Guess Because My Own Mother...
Never Had An Interest...
In Fact She Found What I Created...
Really Quite Strange...She Didn't Understand It...
Why Folks Would Want To Clutter Up Their Homes...
With Dolls & Such...
 Dolls That Were Made To Look...
Old & Dirty No Less...lol
 
And Here I Am At 60...
The Age When I Marveled At Those...
Interested In Creating....
And I'm Understanding The Freedom Age Gives One...
In Creating And Other Aspects Of Life...
 
When Folks See My...
I Wonder If  They Would Be Surprised To Find...
That A 60 Yr. Old Gray Haired Gal...
Is Creating It?
 

Enjoy!
