(I'm really wondering how still I have to stand to keep some of these photos from being
so blurry. )
Thank you for letting me get that off my chest.
These are my two newest letters
"M" - 8" paper mache letter. Morning Glory.... ( I actually think my best friend Michele plans to scarf this up, but I wanted to show it any hoot. )
"N" - 12" wooden letter. Naughty or Nice.... I really enjoyed doing this one.
I am working on my "O" now. I'm going with a Opium Poppy for the subject. A very pretty flower that I think will make a lovely subject matter.
"P" - Paper was my subject. A collage of craft paper, paper dolls, algebra books ( didn't see any reason to not use them, won't be needing them any longer myself!) Ha! I also threw a couple of photos of Shirley Temple in there.
I actually created the "P" a while back, but decided that since I wasn't staying in sequence with the letters I would wait until I got to the M,N,O before showing it. Okay, I have skipped over "O", but only for a short time.

When I was a little girl I wanted to be Juliet Prowse. I wanted to dance!
I realized at some point that I was just way too short to be Juliet Prowse, so I decided that it would be much more realistic to be Mitzi Gaynor….
See, that’s a whole lot more realistic. Ha!
Needless to say after taking ballroom dancing from a friend of my mother at the age of 12, 13 or 14? I can’t remember, I didn’t dance again.. I would tell you that I did the shag in college, which is both true and not true. I was so self conscious in college that I wouldn’t do it in front of a male at all. Well, that’s kind of not the truth either. I did it once, but I was terribly drunk. As I recall, a little later in the evening I got terribly sick… probably jostling all that alcohol around in my tummy! Ha!
I did dance one dance, once with my ex husband… in the early years… but he told me that I bounced. So, I never danced with him or anyone else again.
Any hoot, my daughter introduced me to a co-worker who belonged to Meetup. It’s a very great organization that matches people up with their interests. This co worker said that she belonged to a swing dance group where you can take an hour lesson during the first hour and then you have 3 hours to just dance. Your dancing with people in you dance class, but then you also dance with others as well.
Oh, yes! If my stamina was a little better, I would have. But, I did stay 2 1/4 hours and I had so much fun, it seemed like a fairy tale!
If the world danced with each other all the time, there would be no war, no misery! Just a bunch of people having fun! And, drinking a lot of water! Ha!

Gonna do it again.............
Ta Da! I'm done! I'm sure if you know me on facebook you have seen the finished product, but I'm tickled it turned out so good. For my first!
I feel so good about this that I’m doing one of my Mom & Dad. I’m going to draw them from their photo portraits done in their 20′s. I think it was their 20′s…. they were young anyway. What’s so important about age anyway, it’s just a number. They sit on my dresser and I look at them all the time. So, here I go again!!!
If you have excellent vision, you can probably tell that I’ve started on the head. I’ve come to a halt today since I reached his nose and ear…… these area’s are intimidating to me for some reason. I have to make sure that I am feeling “all creative” before I can continue on. But, on a happy note, I am on fall break, I’ve promised myself this time would be spent creatively so I have all the time in the world to get this right. At this point, that’s how it seems…. :[ Ha! We will see.....
I know this is my 2nd post in one day, but I'm on fall break and I'm on a roll.....
I have been working on this "L' for forever! It surprised me when I realized how intense it is to paint Lollipops! I'm serious, it's amazing.....
I have creating these paper mache letters with interesting designs for a time now. I am working on my "M' already..... a flower theme I think. I know most of you know this next section, but this is what I added to my new blog on wordpress, so I thought I'd let you see it too. Aren't I sweet?
Here are some of the previous letters I've completed and now are for sale at www.etsy.com/AllBeckysCreations
And, just to add a little side bar, I have also done a few that have been for individuals....
Halloween can not be missed also, so here are my contributions to Halloween 2013
Boy that spider H is blurry. I tried to find the clear one, but I haven't got all day. If I find it later, I will give it the attention it deserves.... It's really cute! Here it is! Told you it was cute!
Oh, Oh, just wait til Thanksgiving! I have something great coming up!
