I'm so happy and thankful to tell you that lil miss Gracie May came home one and 1/2 weeks after she was born. Something we were'nt expecting until mid april. She still only weighs 5 lbs(she lost alittle) but is healthy. I'm still helping out but not as much so I did manage to do some art. I just want to say thank you for all your prayers ,they mean more then I can ever say. Hope everybody has a creative week!

And its a girl! My granddaughter was born on March 11th. Her name is Gracie May. As some of you might already know my daughter had a baby boy a couple of years ago and he was born nine weeks early. We went through alot with him and with prayers and all of God's doing he is our little miracle today. And now we ask for more prayers for little Gracie May,she was born six weeks early. When we ask the doctors why this happened again to Ashley? They said that when you have one premie you usually keep having them, her body just thinks that its time. Gracie is 5 lbs 8 ounces which is not a bad weight at all,and she is doing ok,a few things like her little lungs arent fully developed but shes doing better as of today and they did start feeding her yesterday. My daughter came home on sunday without her baby again,you can just imagine how empty and scared she feels. Please lift her up in prayer as well. And as for me well I'm busy helping her in anyway that I can,between cooking dinners and watching her other two babys so I just want to apologize for not visiting your blogs and leaving comments but I will visit soon. And I will try to keep you posted.

So I'm loving Christy Tomilinson's new class "She art". This is one of my finished ones but the girls arent suppose to have faces but I just couldnt help myself. I promised myself that the next one is not gonna have a face!
I'm still on a sketching roll but I only have one spoon to show because the others are just blahhhhh. But I also have another drawing site to share. http://www.fivepencilmethod.com/ theres some great tutorials on there about faces. I only watched the lip video and it was really detailed. Most of the tutorials are free but he also has some to purchase which I didnt. And one more thing I wanted to share is a book that I checked out of the library. Its called drawing for the absolute and utter beginner by claire watson garcia. Let me just say that I check out alot of books on drawing and this was the first one that I actually started at the beginning and have learned lots. I think because most books on drawing have about two chapters just on supplies and how to use them and this one goes over alittle of that but she has exercises right from the beginning. I'm hoping that I can buy the book from amazon but I havent checked yet. Hope everybody is starting to warm up! Have a great week!
