An Imagination Girl... 56

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, January 19, 2012 @ 8:58 AM | ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great week! I would like to give a special thanks to those of you who left such kind and encouraging comments on my blog as well as the Pink Paislee blog :) I really appreciate the support. I have off from work today and I will be spending the rest of the morning at an Internal Medicine Veterinarian with my sweet little girl Gretchen. She has had an on going UTI for nearly 8 - 10 months now and I am very frustrated with my Veterinarian, so time to move on. I've been more than patient and feel as though she may be suffering. I am praying it is not some funky renal disease :( She is only 5 years young.
 I took a little break from my DT projects and painted a girl to hang in my "studio" aka kitchen ;)
I am embracing bright and bold colors these days! They are definitely challenging for me but hey, nothing like a good creative challenge right?
 She's made with a mix of stamps, paint, ink, patterned paper and rub ons. I dusted off and pulled out the Vintage angel wings and crown rub ons from Melissa Frances:
Recently, the local craft store, Michael's, had their brand of resin flowers on sale for 50% off so needless to say, you will be seeing lots of these on my projects! :) LOL
 Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you have a great day! Be Sweet :)

I forgot that I wanted to tell you your new photo looks amazing.. LOVE IT!!!

Jen Adcock said...

Both your girls are gorgeous. I have had my old fur baby recently go blind almost overnight without explanation and can totally relate To the unhelpfulness of vets. Sending a wee prayer that Gretchen is sorted before too much longer.

I love that your crafting studio is your kitchen. Mine is similarly unorthodox but works well. Not sure how I'd go in a proper studio. I think I'd feel a bit isolated from my muses.

All the very best. Hugs.
