Getting back to the roots of who I am.
I am reading through the bible again this year. Being a Christian is at the root of who I am. Even the name of my business is based after this bible verse.
Colossians 1:10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God.
Many years ago when my children were young I led a weekly girls christian group. We always did an art project of some kind. I tried to come up with things that could be used. Tie die beaded tee shirts. Spider pins are the ones that come to mind right now. I would like to incorporate this more into some of the things I make. As I looked through my blog photos I found that I have stayed true to a usable artwork theme often already it seems. As I looked through my blog photos I found many things that could be used.
My Rug hooked Cat Purse is one of these things.
My Kleenex Box Cover Dolls
My Snowman Candy Holder I also have a Rug Hooked version
Large Witch Cauldron
So look for some more things that you will be able to use in your everyday life.
That is when I finally get some time to work on artwork. This , due to my job, sabbatical from artwork is actually a blessing as it is making me think about what I really want to do over these next phases of BeFRuiTFuL KReaTioNS artwork. It is also making me ponder who I am now and the directions I want to take in my personal life.

My feet had been peeling for several years. I finally decided to search what I could find out about natural remedies online. I found out that this peeling can be caused from a fungus on the feet. One of the remedies said to rub tea tree oil on your feet. I happened to have some of this so I gave it a try. I rubbed it on right before going to bed. First night I put it on and crawled into bed David said, "what is that awful smell". True it does not smell very good but my feet are so much better after rubbing this on for three nights in a row and waiting for about a week. Why a week mainly because I forgot to use it. My feet look so much better. So keep this in mind if you too have peeling feet. Make sure you are not allergic to it by doing a patch test first.

We hope to be working one more month and maybe a bit longer down here in Texas. But what I am looking forward to is being back in Colorado. We were only able to spend a couple of months there over the last year. Looking forward to watching the little fawns grow. Feeding the birds. Watching the many squirrel that make our property their home. Sharing time with my parents, our grown kids, extended family and friends. Attending my nieces wedding. Finishing a few patterns that I have been promising to people. I hope to bind my BHR rug this summer. I kind of have rugger's block when it comes to binding and I spent so many hours hooking this rug, I do not want to mess this up. I was also waiting as I didn't know whether I wanted this to be a wall rug or a floor rug. I also hope to just get some time to do some artwork.
