I thought...

I thought that with all 3 of my kiddies being in school, all day long, that I would have more time. It seems, the more time I have...the less I get done. It seems like I am busy all day and all night long, but really getting NOTHING accomplished! How is that possible.

I will not have a update on TDIPT Mercantile and just don't like that. I was working so hard on a new handmade and it just would not work out properly. Instead of "pushing" myself, I set it aside. I have not worked on a handmade since. I have been putting patterns together thou...

I have been working on this guy...My Olde St. Nick. He is such a Charming Olde Soul! With Christmas not very far away, I need to kick my "tail-feathers" into "High Gear"! My days seem to roll into one another, as if each passing day is intertwined with one another, with no end to each day.

I would like to take a moment "Thank" all of you! Every single one of you have made a difference in my life. Ones who have given me "Words of Encouragement", Customers who have purchased handmades and/or patterns, Friends who listen to my mindless dribble, when I need to lean on them. There are so many people that have touched my life, since beginning my Journey in Doll making.

Whether it be good or bad, happy and sad. So many things have made an impact on me and has made me who I am and I Thank you for that! For each passing moment in time, has made me a better, more respectful, more responsible and more Thankful person. I take each moment as if comes, and I run with it.

I printed this on my one of my newly released patterns. I don't know how many will read it, because quite honestly, when I use a pattern 9 times out of 10 I do not read them, I just jump in, because I get so excited.

The path that I am traveling on with you…..is the JOURNEY
That I have only dreamed of traveling on for many years…
Because of you, my DREAM is now Reality!
Thank you for making my ~DREAM COME TRUE~
Many Endearing Blessings to each of YOU…..~Tonya

You are so very sweet. I love your message that you've put inside your patterns. Your work is awesome ... I've watched you blossom into such a fabulous artist over the last couple of years. Keep up the great work and don't let a little "artist block" keep you away. ;o)

I can sure hear you about the time thing. 6 of my 7 will now be in school full days beginning Monday. That leaves me with just my little "Bug" at home Mon-Th and I still manage to get VERY little accomplished. I miss creating but I just can't seem to get myself to set up the studio. What's up with that anyway? Someday ...

Take care and bless you!!!

Hi Tonya,

You are so very talented and such a talent must be gently nurtured so that it continues to thrive. I think it's very wise not to push. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend :)

You just haven't found your groove yet. BTW Jordon's hair was awesome.... Is there anything you can't do? and do well? Good grief you make me look bad. LOL
