the birthday party... it's-a-comin'

Tomorrow is my daughter's 5th birthday, always makes me think of her birth mother in China & wonder about her & what she's thinking on the 19th.... We're having a party at Chuck E Cheese with 6 little kids on Saturday... oh boy! Sunday is the big family party & I just counted & it will be a minimum of 25 people... & 60% chance of rain, sounds great! ha! I made these giant Martha Steward paper flower thingy's that took me over 3 hrs & am not real sure I'll get to hang them outside like planned...

Yesterday was a trip to the Ann Arbor art fair where is was a comfy 90 degrees! Whewwwww! TONS of great art, but next year, the child stays with my parents! It was just too much for a 5 yr. old. There were so many mixed media pieces that were great but, of course, i wasn't able to take pictures... I picked up several of their cards with websites so after i get thru this birthday weekend i'll post some.

ok, off to see how the pinata is coming....

pendants on etsy... chinamommy

here are some pictures of my pendants:

1 more time...

well, i just wrote my first blog post & now... it's gone! dang, it's hard to get older :)
Ok, here it is again:

I'm 39 & a mother to 1 little girl adopted from China (adoption by choice & "no" there is nothing "wrong with me" & "yes" people really do ask!). I have a BA in Fine Art & LOVE whimsical art. I'm still on the journey to finding my inner artist & style.... I love to scrapbook, garden (flowers, not so much veggie's), read, daydream, shop etsy, & hang out with my friends & family. I've loved Tom Selleck since I was a 4th grader & think Natalie Merchant has the best voice ever. I love veggies, turkey burgers with olives & swiss and could eat tootsie rolls till i got sick. I have a very quirky sense of humor & was lucky enough to find a best friend who can finish my sentences!! We always say we're siamese twins joined at the brain, seperated at birth & re-united at ______ (a prior place of employment that i refuse to give a plug to!). So that is me in a nutshell... a very tiny nutshell.

I just opened a store on etsy & am so excited about it!! It took me so long just to figure out why I couldn't get my pictures to load, then once I figured that out it took forever for me to figure out how to re-size them... the pictures are NOT the best, but they're on! 3 pendants & more to come. i have a 1,000 ideas & you'd think now that I stay home I'd have all the time in the world to just daydream & create.... Soooo, when you go to etsy (you know you want to...) make sure you search for me by my seller name: chinamommy.

Off to finish planning my daughter's 5th birthday which is THIS weekend. I make myself crazy trying to be all "Martha Stewart"-like...

lator tators

I'm on etsy!!

After much confusion, I've finally added 3 pendants to my etsy store. If you go to & search by sellers, my seller name is: chinamommy. I don't really get the whole "resizing" photo thing, so
