Mermaid art

How do you make a mermaid??????

Give her perky boobs, long flowing hair, a tight tummy, and a huge piece of tail and you got a mermaid.

At last

Here she is

Toni's mermaid

So, the mermaid is drying

And if I don't say so myself I like her. First time using doll hair but it looks so cute. I found all kinds of neat things for this canvas. As soon as the glue dries clear I will take pictures and post. I am hoping everyone will really love her. Oh and last but not least keep all your junk cause you never know when you will need it. I found a teeny tiny bottle and now my canvas has a message in a bottle .... yeah

okay off to finish watching the marathon of the deadliest catch on discovery. love that show

Some better pictures of the pearls

A video for you

In order for you to hear you will have to put the cd player at the right hand side (purple box) on pause.

But the best gift of all

Was what my DH said to me when he gave me these..... What he said was so sweet that even writing this I am still in tears. I love this man, more than life itself. I don't know what I did right to deserve this man but thank god I did something right.

This man my BIG DADDY has the heart of an angel that very few ever see...his true inner self.... I am so lucky to have him. I only wish I could tell him so that he would know every waking second of his life.

For my big daddy

I am lucky honey, I am loved by you........ and I will always love you till my last breath and then beyond.

Here is what my darling husband the man who rocks my world gave me gold pearls with diamonds all around them and the necklace is engulfed in gold and diamonds. The finest in the world..... this man, my man, my love, my soul ,my big daddy
