An angel to watch over her...

Just finished this doll , and am thinking I will give her to my mom. I think she might like her - you never know with these crazy non-mixed-media people , lol. Sometimes she does , others all I get is 'that girl must have had a lot of spare time on her hands' , which is mom-code for 'Euw'.
I learned how to create her from the lovely Joanna of Moss Hill Studio , who has created as many of these as I hope to , lol. I'm sort of finishing off this post - I'd started it the other night , got interrupted and hit 'publish' intead of 'save' accidently , which I didn't even notice until this morning - so it goes.

How do you bear the unbearable? My heart aches for Becky , someone I've never met or even heard of prior to Lori's post yesterday. Yesterday , Becky lost her oldest boy Jordan. This sort of tragedy is something every parent guards so fiercely against and lives in fear of - it terrifies me.
If you can find the words , please stop by and offer what comfort you can. The thought of facing what she and her family are facing right now - I don't ever want to have to deal with that , and I'm so , so sorry that she has to.

Barb at Treasures from The Heart is having her 100th Post Giveaway on her blog and is creating handmade nests as the prizes - who doesn't like a nest?!

Ok , what is going on with Blogspot today? What IS that in my title lol?

edit: a day or so later: I've deleted the title because it refuses to fix itself , and it looks weird. All future posts may well go without too , who knows. I certainly don't!
