A Sacred Heart for Ellie

Happy Late Birthday, Ellie!

She likes Purple. Can you tell?

Ellie took the picture for me too.


Today is special, Happy Birthday!

Today is the day that two beautiful women were born 24 years apart. I am sure many more were born this day, but these two are special to me and it has been a little over a year since they both died.

A month and a half apart.

I would like to take a moment to remember them.

My Mother-in-Love, Rosalie, Happy Birthday Mom, we all miss you very much.

We are all doing pretty well and Madi says “hi”. She still remembers you.

Your son is doing very well. Look out for him please.

I miss you and I am learning.

Happy Birthday my dear blog friend Renee, I can not believe it has been a year already. Thank you for spending your precious time with me. Knowing you changed my whole life.

I miss you and I am learning.

I did not know until the end that these two ladies were born on the same day and when I found out it didn’t surprise me at all.

They were both very honest, good mothers, unique, teachers, and extremely loving.

Both of their names start with R.

They both died from breast cancer.

I will miss you both for the rest of my life.

Love and Kisses MOM.

Renee, I love you my pretty.

Cannon’s Birthday- Part Deux

WARNING this post is photo intensive!

Well, this is part two from Cannon’s birthday. I almost posted the cute picture of him again but decided not to. You have to go here to see it.

I added the characters to a grass pad that is about 1/2 block of Cernit Green and 1/2 Light Green marbled together or 2.2 ounces total.

They seem to like sitting on the grass, it is probably way better than that foil covered cardboard.

 Next I made the letters for Cannon’s name. They are just rolled out coils that are about 3/16″ to 1/4″ in diameter bent in to the letter shapes. I lay the letters on to the grass to see if they will all fit well before pressing them in to place.


 I decided when I laid the letters out that I would like them better if they were elevated a little from the base.

So I rolled out  1/2″ coil of the green colored clay and place the coil across the front of the base.

I pressed only on the front of the coil when I pressed it down so that it would be lower in the front than in the back.

I then placed the letters on top of that coil and gently pressed them in to place.

 I have a rubber stamp with my name on it. I stamped this in to the light green and placed it against the blue monster. Then dated it with marking ’10 on it.

I placed a cone of yellow and red together and twisted them together then rolled that cone on my work area to smooth it to make the party hat.

The top of the party hat is just little tiny cones placed on the tip of the hat.


I added a giant  number one to the blue monsters right side, he holds this with his hand.

Here is the way it all looks with the additions.

I am going to add some more things now.

I added a package and tied it with a bow.

I added another package with a bow and a banner to write on to the front of the letters.


 Then another long rectangle package to the side where the baby bird is and then added a purple ribbon and a bow to that!

Here is the finished piece and it is baked. I have written on the banner and this also a better glimpse of the colors.

A closer look!

The back side of the piece and the blue and red monsters too.

This is the piece from the top and the right side of it.

This is the front and a closer look at the characters.

This is another view.

I signed the bottom from all of us.

 A final look, a birds eye view.

Happy 1st Birthday Little Cannon.

Have a wonderful day!

The size of the base is 5″ across and the height of the piece is about 3 1/2″.

The weight of the piece is 10 ounces that is almost 5 blocks of clay.


Cannon’s Birthday

Madi’s little friend Cannon is having a birthday party this weekend. You may remember Cannon from this picture at Halloween.

I wanted to do something special for Cannon. This is the group that my daughter and I did Lamaze with when she was pregnant with Madi.

My daughter and Madi have celebrated a lot of firsts with these kids and their parents. I am so glad they have all stayed in touch over the year.

It is so fun to be in on this from the beginning!

They are a great group of kids with kids, lol!!

They are very nice to me and Cannon’s dad is the one that pieced a computer together for me when I worked mine in to the ground and had no money to buy another one, and because of him I was able to keep posting and commenting.

I am so grateful for that!!

Cannon’s theme for his Birthday revolves around little baby puppets.

I love little baby puppets.

I wanted to make them in a ring, so I put this cutter there.

Here are the legs to the first one, can you guess who it is yet?

Here he is finished, with the next guy coming to life besides him.

Awwwwwwwwww so cute.

That bird thing in the back though looks like he is coming out of the desk.

Now the bird looks better. If you will notice they are sitting next to each other.

Forget the ring of characters.

I am always going back and forth with how I want something to be in the end.


A pair of legs, I bet you can guess who this is, right?

Well, maybe not, but I will tell you he is my favorite monster and he loves to be tickled.

Sorry these pictures are not so great! I have to work on these in the late hours of the day.

With a one year old running around the place, it is very hard to get much of anything done during the day.

  kind of let the pieces fall where they may. They tell me how they should stand together.

I know, sounds crazy, yep!!

They are looking very cute together though.

Luckily I work pretty fast, don’t want to give them a chance to change their minds.

Here is a view from different angle.

Here is another character coming to life.

They seem to greet each other as the come alive.

Is it?…

Yes, it is!


Oops, looks like the red baby grew a nose too!
