Expanding on my business!!

I am going to do some back tracking here. Back in November I was looking at Facebook and I saw some very pretty roses made out of paper. I commented on the beautiful roses and Anna Fearer from More Paper Than Shoes invited me to join her group.

This was the first time, since my sister Loretta passed that I had ANY interest in make ANYTHING out of paper. I had packed up all of my stamping and paper products. I couldn't bare to see them as this was something I did with Loretta!!

I took a class of Anna's and started to make some roses. I feel I caught on very quick. Here are some of the early roses.



                  After some practice, I believe I am getting better.


                                These are a 1/2" across!!
                                                  These too!




January is a mixed month of emotion.  My youngest son James birthday is the 21st. Gwen's 7th birthday is the 19th. That same day, my Mother passed away. Gwen and I talk about that day and every time she says that, she saw my Mom going to Heaven when she was coming to this earth!! Who knows, I believe her!!  Also this month on the 13th my beloved Brother Rocky passed away. Can't believe it has been 1 year for him and 7 years for my Mother and Father. It was 3 years in July that my sister Loretta passed.

OK Lord, No more for a while, please??  Looking forward to February 2012!!

  5. Aww...Your roses are so pretty. It's hard to believe they're made of paper because they look so real. I wish you luck on this paper roses venture. :o)
