Life's Journey is a mural of Threads.

The threads of my mural are influenced by my spiritual practices, personal values, the love of friends, and special people that have been my guides. They are strengthened by my husband's love and support. The colors are brilliant with the influence of my enthusiasm for continued exploration for meaning and truth.

My threads will continue to weave their unique patterns as I explore life's roads, paths, alleys, and avenues. My beliefs will provide many hues as I continue search for a personal meaning of my existence. Artistic challenges and accomplishments will add the sparkle!

The colors radiate the pulse of my life. There is a rhythm to the design. I have danced, whirled and twirled, even stumbled, but, I do have style!

I am excited about sharing the developing design with you through this Blog.

Munchie - Teddy Bear

These were so much fun to embroider! The set is traveling to Adrianna, a little girl that was recently quite ill. Her name was posted on a Yahoo Group for prayers. I decided to make her this set of fabric paperdolls.

The set is titled "Munchie Bear"
I made five outfits:
Little Bear Loves Honey
Little Bear Picks Apples
Little Bear Goes Fishing
Little Bear Goes to a Party
Little Bear Goes to Sleep
Each outfit is mounted on a plastic sheet
with a note about the design. There is also a
photo of the completed outfit!
They are from All Grannysgirls:


  1. What a wonderful gift Jan! These are adorable. We are presently in Bend, Or. It feels like we have come "home." We will list our home when we return home tomorrow.

  2. Dear Jan,
    your teddies are great. I think Adriana will like them.
    Regards Trillian
