My New Banner

This is the cage doll of course that inspired the new banner. Take a look at the past banners I've made for my blog!

Change Is Hard But Can Be Good

Greetings all! Since change is my middle name these days and I can't sculpt anything I thought I would lighten up the look of my blog. What do you think?  I recently dropped the hyphenated Moore(my first married name!) from everything. Also Petty is on everything related to our new home purchase and my Reggie didn't want any last minute surprises at closing!  I had to get a new driver's license, SS card etc., and I am in the process of editing my name on all sites. Like many of you I am going through major life changes. Much of it is positive and I thank Father-God for the positive as I proceed through the challenges.

I am continuing to study different types of dollmaking as I do intend to take it to the next level whenever I unpack everything and set up my new studio. There is much to learn and experience in the development of my creative process. I am also encouraged  in the healing process of my emotions and spiritual progress. I am spending more time meditating on God's Word and identifying myself as it relates to me as a child of God. After all He is the master Creator and I am made in His image! I encourage all of you to do the same because it is increasingly difficult times in this world and we need all the help we can get from God's word and His presence. Let's continue to pray for each other and those who need Christ in their lives, which of course is the entire world!!

I want to share with you one of the last photos taken this past Christmas of my mom surrounded by a few of her grands and great-grand-kids. The lady in back with red hair is my daughter Nikki. A'keyla her daughter is right next to her and Jonathan her son is standing in navy in the front with my mom. The other kids are 1st and 2nd cousins. There were so many of them there that we had to borrow the church hall to have the dinner!

Love Is In The Air!

Happy Valentine's Day to all my beloved friends! It's been quite a ride but I am finally feeling about 75% recovered from the pneumonia monster(no relation to the cookie monster!). Somedays I feel almost normal and then a baby elephant tries to sit on my chest. Pesky bugger!

The condo is filled with packed boxes and bins as we wait for our closing date. Reggie started packing two weeks ago poor thing! He's excited though. Mom has the constitution of an ox and is hanging in there, actually coherent and talkative on some days. It's rather weird to observe her Forest Gump type of existence. You really have no idea how she will present as she tends to vacillate from day to day and sometimes every few hours.

I have been watching the weather reports and really praying for my friends that have been dealing with such extreme weather. Hang in there and be strong my peeps!

Well I continue to visit your sites and facebook to see what is going on with you all and to drool over all the lovely arts and crafts you are all creating. Of course it will probably be a month or so before I can get back to creating anything as all my stuff is packed up. Stay well my friends! Thanks for all your prayers and comments of encouragement. Teresa don't eat too much chocolate today! Much love to you all!
