I'm back on the blog- from a very busy break! My family moved to Fredericksburg, Virginia- only a two and a half hour move, but by far, the hardest one I've ever made. With two very young kids, everything takes forever! A month later, we have everything in it's place, and it's time to resume my work on Big Momma (my new Mary Bead that won't stop growing!).
Here is a pictures of the rays I am putting on Mary. They are coming along nicely, but she is just getting so big, it's making me really worry how this is all going to work out. I've never reduced a cane this big and I've never used this Kato clay before, so I am praying-really, I'm praying hard that this is going to work.
Anyway, here is a pic of my new work space in my new house. Quaint. But let's face it, I make rosaries , not money ;) The picture on the right is a poster I had back in high school that I got from a Marian Conference where I traded a rosary for it. It is a drawing of Mary in three pinnacle parts of her life- the Nativity, the Presentation, and the Crucifixion.
Also on the wall, I had to put the picture my Grandma made for me when I was born- I blogged this on an earlier post (Grandma Leukam).
Lastly, here are a couple picks of my family on Halloween. Analee was Mother Theresa, and Liam was Thomas the Train (he is obsessed with trains!). I made the Mother Theresa costume out of dishtowels and paint. What fun!
