My little brother is such a champ. He's 17 and has cerebral palsy, hypothyroid, and epilepsy. He is mentally and physically disabled, but he still gets through life with a huge smile on his face, and is quite the social butterfly. For a few years, he has been insisting that every time we are together, we create some kind of art together. Usually this involves painting or drawing Disney characters to the best of our abilities.

Earlier this month, he wanted to make something out of clay with me while visiting. I taught him how to pinch off pieces of polymer clay and roll balls and logs to make the bodies of the animals. He did this all with his one "good hand". I helped even and smooth out the shapes for him, but he assembled most of the pieces. Sometimes I just held his hand/finger out and sort of used his hand to do the smoothing just so he could have the experience. He was really excited about them. I'm pretty surprised how they came out actually. These were the only photos I got because the next morning, he took them with him back down to Florida, so the colors are bit off from limited lighting in our dining room. My brother insisted that the giraffe be sticking out his tongue, that the tongue be blue, and that the giraffe also have Elvis-style hair. Wink

Prompt:  July Midnight Opening
Team:  Wordy
Event: Yarnology
Bonus Points: NA
Project Name: Have a Potato fridge magnet
Project Link: 
Brief Description:  Embroidery on printed fabric, with couched yarn edging, of a memorable quote from one of my favorite spooky movies, The Old Dark House 1932, directed by James Whale, and starring Ernest Thesiger, Gloria Stuart, Charles Laughton, Boris Karloff and others of note.  This is the most Gormenghastian film Ive seen, in my opinion much more so than the tepid BBC rendition of those books.  The Old Dark House shares several features in common with Gormenghast; twin disasters of fire and flood, weird squabbling siblings, a hulking nearly mute manservant, people going (or being, or acting) mad, and everyone creeping around in the dark.   Excellent performances and black comedy.

My daughter got the most amazing package from Pumelia and her daughter. My pictures don't do this package justice at all. This poppet is amazing!! She also has removable wire wings that I couldn't get a decent picture of to save my life. My daughter has wanted a poppet for SO long and now she has the most beautiful one and won't put it down. She is so beautiful and I can't express how appreciative we are for this doll!. They also made the cutest chair for her, a butterfly, and a spider pet for her. They made a loch ness monster and a crochet washcloth? in beautiful colors. There was also a cute bracelet and a note for her. Pumelia and Melia, thank you so much for this wonderful package. I'm sorry it took so long to post pictures.

It's been a little bit since my last miniature printable, and I thought it was high time for a new one. My Blythe doll insisted on going on an extravagant trip, so I made her a little passport.

If you want one of your own, you can find the PDF of the printable on my blog.

I filled her passport with some miniature stamps I had lying around as well as an eraser stamp I made in the shape of a "B".

It makes me wonder where she's been...

alwaysinmyroom received from me.  I hope she doesn't mind me posting pics of what I made for her.  I'm pretty proud of them. She requested 2 pet portraits.  The black lab is Bear, and the husky mix is her late doggy angel, Rowdy.  I made them w/oil pastels.  I hope you all like them.

I made these 2 pet portraits for alwaysinmyroom for the IYP Swap Round 26.  The black lab is Bear, and the husky mix is her late pooch love, Rowdy, who is now an angel in heaven.  Once again I used oil pastels.  I hope you all enjoy them.

Mr Crab is on the truck. We had to go back for a picture when there weren't people everywhere. That's a really old sign. Willie only plays there once in a while now.

So I still haven't transferred the pattern I intended to use for this months theme but....

The hoop that I started for the February theme has been sitting unfinished for months now.  My partner in the IYP swap just happened to have the exact hoop pinned so I was finally motivated to finish it and send it off to her.  Now that it's done I think it actually fits for this months whimsical theme.  My partner hasn't received the hoop yet but she doesn't follow this thread so I am safe posting.

The pattern is called Doodle Heart from Urban Threads.
