Hi folks! 

Happynewyear

I wish for all of you to have a blessed and prosperous year!

I have had a little hiccup along the way, but I am trying to not let it stop me. For those of you that do not know, I started having symptoms of laryngitis about 2 months ago. I was very puzzled by it because I had not been ill. After 6 weeks of no improvment, I went to my ENT doctor. I was given an laryngoscopy and it was found that my left vocal cord was not functioning. I have been treated with steroids, however, up to this point there has not been any improvement. According to what my doctor said, if there is no improvement by the end of this week I will probably need to have a neck and chest scan to see if they can figure out what is causing this. It is a little scary, but I am doing my best to stay positive. I have a great supportive family and a wonderful group of friends that I know will get me through whatever lies ahead.

In the meantime,I am back to working full time! I am painting away and of course I am in doll show mode for the International Doll and Teddy Bear Show. Click the link below for more information:

I have some beautiful sculpts planned for this show. It is my hope that I can bring a table full of babies that will include open eyed, closed eyed, Boys, girls, and babies of different ethnicities. I have my work cut out for me for sure! I have also taken on the adventure of learning silicone painting.

I hope to have at least one sillicone baby available for adoption. I would love to have 2, but that might be jumping the gun a bit. We will see how it goes!ion.

Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions you may have regarding the show. If I cannot answer them for you, I will try to find the answer.
