Bones

I'm still here, I promise. As you can see I still haven't spent any time fixing the color or layout of this blog. I do have some ideas, but I have to go somewhere to take a picture to make them work. Ha. One of these days. I hope you'll bear with the less-than-beautiful in the meantime.

A couple of things of note:

Here's Killer in his halloween costume. (Yes, that's one of his many nicknames. Please don't judge.) Patrick loved this costume and dressed him in it often for weeks before Halloween.
About this baby, he is starting to crawl. By next week I suspect he'll be moving full speed ahead. I'm making slipcovers for our dining room chairs in preparation for what comes next. With waterproof linings.

About the wall reliefs: More should be ready soon. I know many of you want them in time for Christmas. (They are a perfect Christmas gift, if I do say so myself.) I will let you know as soon as they become available. Not this week though.

A side note to that, there seems to be a desire for truly beautiful religious art. I've been tossing the idea around in my head of opening some sort of shop dedicated to that very purpose. It's a long way off to be sure, but I do think there is need. I know many shops out there sell beautiful religious goods, but often one has to sift through pages upon pages of junk not-so-nice to get to the beautiful. And truly beautiful art doesn't have to be expensive or made from fine materials. It just has to be well-chosen. I think I can do that.

Schooling has really been going nicely this year. Some changes early on (back in August) have made it more enjoyable than ever and I plan to write more on that subject in the near future. For now, I'm hearing "Mama, mama" coming from the napping room, aka my bedroom, and you know how I feel about that sound.

He gets cuter and cuter with every picture. I love the outfit!

Haha, awesome outfit. I've missed the boats on your reliefs so far; every time you make more, they are sold out in the blink of an eye! I saw one of yours up close at my friend KC's house. They are bigger than they look in the pictures and just gorgeous. I would definitely support your store if it's online. Not that I have a ton of money. But you're so right, there is a need for beautiful religious art.

Oh, he looks so cute!!!

I think your artwork is wonderful. I always miss out, but I'm thrilled that others are getting a chance to buy your stuff!

There is totally a need for beautiful religious art and please let me know if you proceed with your idea! I was even disappointed on our trip to Rome. I just thought that was where I might find some beautiful, quality pieces. But, there was so much tacky, cheap...well, junk as you said.
Your little son is an absolute doll.
