Ladybug dotee

Made her for Dotee Challenge-same cloth. The host of the swap sent all of the swappers two small swatches of the same material. The material reminded me of a ladybug. So that is what she turned out to be, lol.

Marine Biologist Dotee

I am not really sure how a marine biologist looks but I figured she needed a lab coat and her journal so she can keep track of all of the marine animals. She loves her job so much she is beginning to resemble a fish.(notice her gills) lol I made her for "When I grow up I want to be"....swap-bot swap. A Marine Biologist was what my partner wanted to be. I hope she likes her. I had fun making her.

Vacation dotee

I love how she turned out. She looks so happy and carefree. Wish I could keep her but she has to go postal tomorrow.

A couple of dotees I just finished

The unhappy one is a two faced dotee the other side of her is the happy face. Crafting makes me happy, sports makes me unhappy. lol The flame one is a male dotee. He is a race car driver. He has his helmet and is ready to go. He is the first man dotee I have made.

Purple swap

This is 4 purple fabric quarters, purple thread, a little purple notebook and a purple dress notepad. I made this purple bag to put all of the stuff in. I hope my partner likes everything.

Not happy with the weather

Well tonight into early friday morning we have storms moving in. They are talking like it will be worse than last weeks storms. I am so scared that we are going to get another tornado and this one effect us. Please keep us in your prayers. Thanks so much. I remember when I was young my grandmother getting so upset when we had bad weather. I remember thinking is there something wrong with her for getting so upset. I wasn't scared but now that I have am older and have a family and see how dangerous they are it is really scary.

Pink, Green and White Button fairies

I made the top 2 of these for a swap-bot swap and the bottom one I am keeping. Hope my partners like them.

Scariest night of my life

Well last night had to be one of the scariest for me. We have had tornadoes come close but never this close. Last night at a little after 9 o clock my husband Jonathan called and said some severe weather was headed our way so I flip over to the news and the tornado was in Benton/ Bryant area. I keep watching and they start telling Little Rock to take cover and then they put up Tornado should be at Cabot at like 10:27 so I am freaking out at this point. So I call my neighbor because I didn't want to be all alone and I get Waylon and we go over to her mom's. We are watching the weather and the warning sirens go off. So we all go in the bathroom and close the door. A little while later the electricity goes off. I am so scared at this point. Asking God to watch over us. And we wait for a while and we hear on the weather radio that it should have passed already. Thank God we were all ok. But today I realized how close it came to us. The next road over. And it went down a ways and then crossed over and went across South 1st by Bob's garage. And it went over toward the high school. Very scary. We were without electricity from 10 something last night to a little after 8 tonight. But we are back in business now. lol I think I am ready to move to Ca. and deal with the earthquakes now. : )
