How to make a dog cone-shaped
Telling you all that I like to write stories and write poems and do drawings and I make crafts is really the biggest understatement ever. Well, to be honest I am not great at anything and can usually only do things that I have always wanted to do. Like be in the military and work with animals. But the most important thing to me is my dog, Toto. I would do anything for him. I want to see him happy and be healthy. I know the world is crazy and bad and wrong, but I believe in a wonderful little red headed boy named Jesus Christ. He is the love of my life and all I need and He will save me. I have been doing this for about 11 years. It all started when I was about 7 years old and I was watching a rerun of an old program called Captn Kangaroo. I was very entertned and fascinated. On that show, he showed and explned how to make a lot of different things. That was when I was just beginning to ask questions and be curious. Then I got a magazine and saw how you could make things and then make dolls out of the stuff that you made. That's when I became interested in art and craft. In time, I became pretty good at it and I love making things. Now I am a full time stay at home mom. I have also been an avid reader and have read hundreds of books. I love my family and friends. I have a wonderful husband, four boys, and a wonderful dog, Toto. I have recently written a book called "Paws For My Family and Friends". It has lots of drawings of my family and lots of drawings of my dog and a few poems. You can get it on amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/Paws-My-Family-Friends-Frodo-ebook/dp/B005N4QMQE/) You can also get it on smashwords (http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/56497). My children inspire me every day. I love to see their imagination come to life through their creations. I think my biggest fear is that they would be stuck in a box. I love to travel and I hope to visit lots of places as they grow older. We are from the great state of Texas where I live and there are lots of natural wonders in the state. In particular, I love the state parks and camping there. I have lots of cousins and family around too. As I get older, it will be easier to get out and do more things.

So, the school year is winding down. We are down to the final month and I am getting so anxious to get to summer. Even though I'm a teacher, I'm looking forward to spending more time with the children and taking more trips and doing more stuff with them. I'm sad to say goodbye to Summer, but it's good to be able to see the changes in the children's lives too. It seems to me that they will get older so quickly. I wish I could snap my fingers and make it stay there for the entire summer.
I have had lots of art shows and I have been showing a lot of pieces and getting good feedback and I am planning on doing more shows. I also love my family and I'm happy that I get to spend more time with them. I have had some very special times with them.
My mom and step-dad are coming in October to visit. She comes at least once a year. I'm looking forward to seeing her and I'm also looking forward to spending a lot of time with her.
My step-son Michael is getting married on August 28th. We're going to be their guests at their wedding and then spending a few days with them after that. I can't believe how fast time goes and how much has changed since I graduated from high school.

I'm very grateful for my family and for the friends I have made here in Austin. I am blessed. They have been very supportive. I have a great group of friends and the people here are very accepting. There are still a lot of people here that I don't know, but I'm hoping to get to know a lot more people as time goes on. I will be busy this summer with art shows and I have been pnting more and that is good, but I don't know how long I'll stay here. My mom, step-dad and my sister and step-brother are coming to visit in October and I'm looking forward to seeing them and spending some time with them.
It's fun to come to the art shows and to have people talk to me. Some of the people I met have become good friends. My step-son, Michael, is getting married and I am going to be his bridesmd. We'll also be spending some time with his new wife's parents. I am excited about this.
There is a lot of pnting going on in my home and this makes me happy because I love the colors. It's hard to keep my kids quiet while I work and then the pnting takes all day. I have decided that I don't want to be the pnter anymore, so I'm thinking I want to take up sewing or quilting.
I just got the new issue of American Quilter and I am going to start there and see what I think of it. There is so much information in this magazine.
Well, I need to get on with it and get my kids ready for the afternoon. It's been a very long morning! I should be happy because I have been at work only 4 times for 2 hours each and I'm ready to go home and pnt more. I'll see you soon and until then...
I love being a visual artist. I don't think I'll ever have to "work" for a living as long as I am an artist. I love what I do!

I love this fabric, it reminds me of bluegrass. It will look good with the green. When I see something like this, I have to have it.
I am going to use this quilt for my home bed, and I hope to make it my baby quilt.
I've decided that when I make my baby quilts I am going to change things up a bit. I've already made my first baby quilt using Simplicity Quilt Block by Anna of "Anna's Garden". If you've been following my blog, you already know the story. I love how that one turned out. I'm not going to try to make that agn, but I will make other quilts, they are just a little different.
I love changing things up. When I get a new fabric or pattern, I'm always surprised at how many changes I can make. I've already made the front of the quilt. I like the
