Peeking inside: oooh, there's the "love" pin and I love it. And an extra surprise little thingy! yes!!!
Then guess what, my battery went dead. I'm charging it up and I will post a better photo of the pin soon. It's very cute, Suz. Thank you so much.

One of these things is not like the other,
One of these things is not quite the same.
One of these things is doin' his own thing,
Now it's time to play our game,
It's time to play our ga-ame.
Or something like that.
These shadow boxes look better in person. The inside pieces are raised up for some dimension. Each one has a different home quote:
Home is home, be it ever so humble.
Home is the nicest word there is. Laura Ingalls Wilder
There's nothing half so pleasant as coming Home again. Margaret Elizabeth Sangster
I long, as does every human being, to be at Home wherever I find myself. Maya Angelou
You cannot control everything. God put hair on your head to remind you of this:
Same quotes: You cannot control everything. God put hair on your head to remind you of this.
Don't you hate it when you're having a bad hair day? It always seems to happen when something important is going on that day. Maybe it could be because I've tried to hard?! I mean really, who am I trying to impress?! The lesson here is one that I (as a recovering and sometimes still struggling, control freak) need to constantly remind myself of: God is control, and I am not! (And I should be thankful everyday that I don't have that kind of responsibility!) Actually, if I had hair like either of these precious gals, I'd take it, butterflies and all.

Girls choir - sopranos in the front, altos in the back.
Synchronized Something! (or a circle of friends)

AFTER: This is the same table and chairs with color and fun!
It's just a matter of time. . . and then what?! hmmmmm. . . . I don't know. . . but I wish I'd taken a "before" shot of this guy, too, cause he was about the same yucky color of blue that the table and chairs were.

And ended up with this! You get this many women together and you get TROUBLE!
This one is Carla. She's pretty rough. Trust me, you wouldn't want to meet her in a dark alley. She likes to wear heels with her animal print leggings. She watches soaps all day except when she's snooping at the neighbors...
There she goes again...she's got a comment about everything, and everyone. Luckily, Mrs. Cleaver just closes her eyes and humors her. What else can you do? Who is she whispering about now?
Poor Laura. I mean Laur-el. Yeah...Laurel .That's it. She just does the best she can. You can tell it in her eyes. She's a little frazzled. She's barely keeping it together some days. She's got 3 kids at home. And a very annoying dog. She considers it an accomplishment to match her headband to her belt. Who cares if she bought them in 1986?
This one, of course, is named Emily. She might need to go in the mail to Texas. She has curly hair and likes the color purple. I've had WAY too much fun with these today. I might need to go make some more. Not because anybody is going to buy them, but because my 2 year old and I have been playing with them all day. I'm kind of attached.

Wholeness is a gift of grace:
I used my new woodburner (finally) to make circles on this frame! The Voice of Truth is singing over me:
I like how you can see the text through the girls' faces. So I'm planning on making more like this.

p.s. I have an artist and a dancer in the works, in this style. I'll post them soon!
