I gave myself a special gift for the New Year ~
time to spend on my sculptures! I have not worked on them
for at least a year, due to the fact that I am always painting~
but I decided that they give me so much joy to create that I
"have to" schedule time to work on them. They are that special
thing that helps preserve my little bit of sanity. :)
