A couple of months ago, over at Willowing Tam was kind enough to provide a free online course entitled "Art, Heart & Healing". Oh what fun it was!! My favorite project from the course was making the Empathy Monster.
Given that my 8 year old son just lost his grandmother, I thought I would make him a special gift that he could cherish forever. Meet Martin (my maiden name), made from remnants of his grandparent's clothing and a vintage button from the huge stash (a stash a creative person only dreams of!) I inherited from my "Nonie" (grandmother).
And...because everybody needs love, I made Martin a girlfriend. Actually, that's sort of an excuse...I made Gloria for me. Shhhhh!!!
