Unfinished Business... Our April Give-Away!

Unfinished Business... we all have it!
It whispers to us from time to time,  
or we catch a glimpse of it in the shadowlands 
sitting on the shelves of our lives.

Some of my "unfinished business" is looking for a new home!
This mixed-media doll is ready to "become"...

From the top of his head, to his wooden box body... 
to his vintage infant shoes;
he is just waiting for a creative make-over!

His head is sculpted with paper clay,
his neck is a vintage porcelain fixture!

His arms are wired wooden finials,
his hands are sculpted paper clay
(just waiting to hold a "treasure"...)

This little guy (who stands 17" tall without his paper hat)
needs a new home and needs to be "finished!"

Just leave a comment on this post...
if you would like to be included in the drawing this month. 
We will randomly pick a name from all the posts 
that are left between today and the end of April!

Don't forget: Attend to that unfinished business!

all for the long weekend!

Congratulations… Linda!

Many thanks for the comments and well-wishes sent my way

March-End-of-the-Month Give-Away!

Time, much like the month of March… has slipped away.
But not without our Give-Away!
Many of you know that four years ago, I heard those words
when my biopsies came back: "You have cancer!"
Now, almost four years later and three years following
my treatment… I am thankful for wholeness in
spirit, mind, and body!

Several of us were challenged at that time, 
to create a doll that was based
upon this theme of "healing"…
Here is my mixed-media doll. 
It is time to pass it on; 
the hope of healing and wholeness!

Leave a comment or note on this post, 
between now and the end of the day on March 31st.
 Let us choose one name… 
and this guy will be in the mail on April 1st!
Blessings… Daryle

What a Difference Two Days & Twenty Degrees Makes!

The snow (see the March 6th post) is quickly retreating 
and in its place... our crocus are coming up!
(untouched color… they are glorious!)

Be blessed in this new week…
Are you standing on "holy ground"?

Winter's Strong Hold… Letting Go?

Our newest snowfall… here in South Jersey.
There are "whispers" of temps reaching into the mid-50's
next week; oh happy day!
