Three Beautiful Things. Everyday, Clare writes about 3 Beautiful Things that happen each day in her life. It's a wonderful blog! I can only hope to imitate her in a very small way.
1) Somedays, it's really difficult to find a good thing, but everyday this week, there was a bit of love and a bit of laughter. Sometimes, I think that's all that we can ask for, so when it happens, it is joyous!!!
2) Pixie loves going to the nursing homes. She loves the ear rubs and the tummy rubs and all of the people who give her attention!! I have to smile as we walk through the nursing homes. She gives so many people so much joy!
3) I mowed the lawn yesterday. Oh, my!! The lawn was very long!! All the rain that ended our drought has caused the grass to grow. You won't hear me complaining about mowing the lawn this year!!!

The hospice care for which Pixie and I volunteer are putting together baskets for new hospice patients.
Items such as blankets, soaps, lotions, and other useful items are going to be included in each basket.
I'm making stretch bracelets.
Tonight I made 10 bracelets.
You can be sure that I'll be making more, but this should be enough for the volunteers to start using.
I'm so grateful to be a part of this group.
I've met some wonderful volunteers and patients.
It's a true blessing!

She was still glaring at me at bedtime, even when she was fake shivering. I'd cover her up, then she'd start panting. My poor girl had a very rough day. I hope she has a better day today!!

Here's what I've been working on using
This is the raw product
sanding, polishing, buffing, patina-ing
Well, you get the picture.
No, you don't, because you haven't seen them yet!
Just trying out covering polymer clay with translucent to see what happens.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus!
Working on adding faces. I'm not there yet.
Jesus carries his cross.
When these are finished, I'll show them again, and you can see the differences.
