About Me

My photo
Oklahoma, United States
I'm a passionate God-chaser who is longing to squeeze as much out of this life as was intended. I'm searching for answers and a deeper relationship with Abba, and in the meantime I want to explore my life and myself and other people in every way possible. And it's highly likely that my passion for mixed media art will occasionally be the vehicle I accomplish that with. Stay tuned...

WOW! What a doll! (or dolls, as the case may be!)

For those of you keeping up with the happenings at Dorcas, we have new members of the "family" - Amy of www.artfulheart.blogspot.com created 4 fabulous Dorcas Dolls and donated them. Aren't they wonderful? Aren't 4 women going to be especially blessed by the gifting of them? Thank you thank you THANK YOU, Amy. And blessings back to you. ~ Mo

Play time

Well, I actually played for a bit in my studio over the holiday weekend. Not long, but it sure felt good! I made a couple of necklaces for my own enjoyment, as I'm tired of wearing the necklace I've worn continuously for the past 3 years. And at church yesterday a woman stopped me and ordered one for herself without even asking a price. Now that's some inspiration! I also managed to work on some charms for a fundraiser/charm exchange hosted by AmberDawn at inventivesoul.blogspot.com. I'll have to post pix of those when I'm completely finished. *sigh* It sure feels good to be doing something again... maybe I'm on a roll???

Meet Baby Dorcas!

Woot! (Techie terminology for Woo Hoo!) As a result of the awesome and generous grant from IBM Corporation (thanks to my wonderful cousin's grant application) I received the new Dell laptop computer for Dorcas today. Meet Baby Dorcas -

I can envision such exciting opportunities for this pink little gem - in-house publication of some of our promotional materials, keeping our web site up-to-date, researching cancer-related resources for women we serve as well as our resource guide, the opportunities are just endless! I am so blown away by IBM's generosity, and somehow it helped validate the reality of Dorcas as a viable organization. Silly, I know, but that's how my mind works sometimes. She has existed in my mind for so long now that I'm not always sure how that translates out in the "real" world.
Anyway, I just thought you might want to see the latest happening. Now I'm busy copying all the documents and graphics to her. Next project - printing labels for the display stands to hold promotional bookmarks, and then distributing into the medical community and public sites. Double woot!
