Octopus - Bottle of Victory

Here is my other bottle, do you see a sea theme happening with my bottles!! Alot of fun to do!

Mermaid - Bottle of Victory

Here she is, as promised. I'm really happy the way she turned out. I didn't know what to expect when I started working on her, but I am just thrilled with the outcome.

I am really enjoying working with clay again, I felt like I lost something when my depression hit, I just couldn't enjoy the little things in life. But my daughter has helped me see a new purpose.

Bottle of Victory

Well I finally got off the couch and had a burst on inspiration. I created my first Bottle of Victory. I was inspired by the books I purchased from Christi Friesen. I love the simplicity and her humour of her books.
So I plan on making a couple more 'sea themed' bottles.
I really enjoyed making this bottle, it was such a creative release, something I needed to do. I hope this is a beginning for me.

Locker Babies

). Now if these pictures don't make you smile, then I don't know what will!!!

Today was another first for Adele, we went to the pool! We went with my friend Kelsea and her twin boys!

Adele loved swimming, it was so much fun. I was a little worried that she might freak out, but she looked around and kicked her legs and splashed me to her little hearts content!

The above picture is of the twins and Adele in the change room. We didn't have anyplace to put them so into the locker they went!

I am looking forward to taking her swimming again, we will be taking swimming lessons starting April 4th. So excited, this is such a wonderful journey for her, and I love the fact that I am there sharing it with her. I just can't imagine my life without her. She makes me laugh, even when she is crying (just not at 3am thou). Now if these pictures don't make you smile, then I don't know what will!!!
