Creepshow Doll

Saw some things online recently that inspired me to start this creepy little doll. My friend Carol
gave me this doll because she knew i could do "something" with it. She came with a pretty little
yellow dress-it's gone (to my niece) she was broken-so now she is officially headless.
i think when i'm done, the body will be holding the head. This is her in the first stage of altering.
More to come as she progresses...

Sad Day for our Family

(andrew, nicole and nathan circa 1989)
Found out this morning that my 25 yr old cousin was found dead in his bed.
I can't begin to imagine what my aunt went through finding him-and all the events
following that discovery. I'm glad we have lots of family in St Louis to be there for
the family-i'll be heading north for a funeral next week.
We miss you already Andrew-RIP
How do you say goodbye to one so young? what do you say to family that sounds adequate?
words can't convey what you feel for the loss of one so young. Death is a part of life, but it seems so much harder to understand when someone leaves us this early-didn't get to fulfill a lifetime.

Road Trip

OK, so we only went to Weatherford to eat pizza, but it was a bit of a drive. They have good pizza, reminds me of Italian Inn that finally closed in the 90's due to the crime in the area.
We also ended up here. We went to Gibsons alot when i was growing up. (at least when we lived in Texas) got many a school supply and stationery pad there. The last time I was in one was when we lived in Alice. in Jr High. remember looking at the stationery so i could write friends back in Hurst-and at the crafty stuff. Brought back alot of memories!

And here's Gary-checking out the toys-
