YES, YES, YES!!! I can finally say a few things! LOL

I am happy to say that I worked up the nerve and finally posting my art(?) LOLROTF Now mind you although I am having fun, they (my classmates) tried consoling me and saying...

that they all start out ugly before they get better. Hummmm, I think that they were just trying to make me feel better!!! Can you say U-G-L-Y? This is better looking now, but I have to take a new shot, at first I thought "that ain't gonna happen"! So, I started thinking about rooting. Always looks pretty raggedy, but in the end, well you know! I think I like doin babies much better, With that being said, I am going to let you suffer with this a day or so, then shock you, if that hasn't already happened! lol

This is the other that I am starting on and really can't wait to see how I am going to paint the Llama's coat in and no, it's not a donkey! :o) And the guy is feeding him or her grass from his mouth. I think that I will start this one next session!

I can FINALLY say that I BIT THE BULLET!!!! I put Keanu on eBay! I am hopefully pessimistic that he will find a new mommy! Please make sure to cheer him on!
Keanu is listed for adoption sale.

It's Official Now!

My prize finally arrived! I got my official certificate and little tiara (it is so adorable!) and now I am pleased to announce my latest achievement July, 2010.  Winning the Miss Baby Doll World Contest with little Tiffanie Ciara (who lives in Hong Kong with her mommy)!

This was a wonderful achievement for me after having gone through the awful trauma of having my tooth pulled Thursday and realizing that this one tooth has been extremely expensive to fix and finally replace. To all that supported her, I thank you so much!

Life gets in the way again...

First I want to wish everyone a safe and HAPPY 4th of July! Be careful with the fireworks and don't eat to much BBQ! We just got back from my sister's celebrated a day early! Food was deelish!

Now about life...
My husband spent a week in the hospital due to fluid buildup due to his bad heart and it was on the other side of town. Running back and forth really takes time out of your day and energy! Prayerful and thankfully he has gotten out and has lost a lot of fluid so he is much more comfortable and a lot thinner 2 weeks later. Now I am on antibiotics due to a tooth abcess and happily waiting for a tooth extraction next week (a very expensive tooth I might add considering a root canal, crown and $1600 later oh did I mention the bone graphs). I am now looking at about the same amount for the extraction and a partial to replace it, the tooth probably should have been pulled at first. Oh well who knew?

The good news is that I am learning proper color mixing techniques in my class and getting the pretty brown shades instead of muddy-what-the-heck-is-this. It is so interesting how two colors can create a value that can go on and on by adding a little more each time and add orange and watch it totally change!

I will start painting on my canvas next class now that I have it drawn. It's a 3 hour class that goes by so quickly that it is unbelievable. I am trying to hold off painting AA's until I see what techniques I can apply with the paints that I already have. I will take my primary colors next class to get a true feel for them. Not saying that I won't be using my premixes, but I can sure enhance them when doing my AA babies! I am very very tempted to start painting my caucasian and asian babies that have been waiting, patiently I might add, but every time I get all set, something happens. They had their baths weeks ago! I have always believed everything happens for a reason...I believe this better be a real good one! lolrothf So my thought is I keep getting slowed down (some how that doesn't sound like proper english but you get the message) not knocked out. I have hope!

From my heart to yours... Hugs, Judie
