Autumn Colors For Thanksgiving Month!

Colorful November 2013 Give Away
Have you ever posted on your blog and as you were posting you got the happy feeling that you love posting and you are going to post three times a week for the rest of your life to say in touch with your wonderful followers?   Well, that happens to me each time I post.  But, real life gets to be so interesting as I participate  in the joys of day to day activities.

  For instance, my four year old grandson just came back from the toy store with Grand Papa with this getup.  He then limbed on the back of my chair and declared that he is a Ninja Turtle ready to  save the world.  From Grandma?  
Ninja Turtle Obsessed
 I really missed a lot while I was ill and catching up, except for the house cleaning, is so much fun.  Just gazing at the beauty of Autumn leaves with a view of tall mountains with gray and white clouds hanging over them encourages me to make a joyful noise.   Although, I must say that I haven't gone mountain climbing but only once since I had my incident with The Boulder.

This month, my blog friends, for November Give Away, I offer to you this very colorful beautiful dressed mannequin, accompanied by shawl/wrap in the same color trimmed with faux fur.  I don't know why my little voice in insisted on making a blue purse as an accent,  but let's go with it anyway.  Personally, I think it looks really cute.  
Resist the cold with this warm wrap.

Thanks again to all of you for leaving your wonderful comments.  I read each of them with passion over and over again.  Thank you for praying for me and one another.  Coping with adversity is usually difficult and adversity is going to touch most of us at some point  but, we just need to roll with it and try to stay sane during the ride and at the end, kiss the "ground."  If you believe in God, please thank Him too. 

Welcome to all new followers.  It makes me smile when I see the number of friends increase and also makes me work harder and happier to bring you the best I can of what I do.  Thank you for following.

In order to enter the draw for the November give away:
              1.  Leave a movitvational comment on this post only.
              2.  Be a follower of my blog.
              3.  Enter by the deadline.
Deadline is Saturday, November 30, 2013 at 11:59 PM Pacific Daylight Savings Time.  Winner will be posted the following week.

Keeping with the Autumn color scene, this is really a beautiful dress.  The silk velvet is hand dyed by the lovely ladies at Vegas Airs from Las Vegas, Nevada.  They do wonders to silk fabrics that work well with miniature creations.  I discovered them at a local miniature show.  Some of my work can be viewed on their website.

Some of my inspirational fabrics from VegasAirs.

Please check back for the December Give Away coming soon.

Hugs, Love and Kisses,

I am not sure what type of motivational comment is required, but I will say that I am inspired and in awe of your talent and your courage. Your work seems effortless! Yet, I know creating miniature outfits as meticulous as yours takes a lot of hard work. My motivational comment is, find something you love to do that is outside of work, outside of caring for loved ones, and outside of any duty or obligation. Whether it is creating miniatures, or collecting vintage dollhouses or painting or swimming, spend at least one hour a week doing it. One small hour will make a huge difference in the rest of your week.

Ilona said...

Since I was your last winner of a wonderful Halloween give away, I won't participate now, Felma, I guess you'll understand. I just want you to know that I admire your efforts to go on with making such lovely creations in miniature. I love that kind of silk fabric you show us in the pictures above. I wish you a wonderful week!
Blessings, Ilona

Dear Felma
Why is it when I see a new dress
created by you I say to myself, this one is the most beautiful. I did so again. The silk is simply exquisite.
It's going to adorn the sidebar of my blog right away.
I am glad you're having fun with your very handsome grandson the Ninja. I too have a 4 year old Ninja.
Hugs, Drora

Giac said...

Hello Felma,
What a gorgeous dress. It really is beautifully made and the fabrics and colors are perfect for the season. However please do not count me in for the draw as it is not period appropriate for my project and I do not want such a work of art to be in a box for years until I have a project where it can work...I'm sure someone else with showcase it the way it deserves.
I am happy you are doing better and wish you all the happiness in the world.
Big hug,

Marisa said...

Ana said...

Hola Felma. Nuevamente estoy aquí, admiro mucho tu trabajo, me encantan los vestidos que haces y no pierdo las esperanzas de tener uno algún dia Gracias por la oportunidad que nos das. Un fuerte abrazo Ana (mucuy)

Hannah said...

Once again a beautiful dress!! You are very good at this!
I would love to enter your giveaway!

I just like to say I feel the same way, about bloging =)
It's amazing to "meet" new people through a hobby and to show your things and get a nice respond, I go back and read nice comments when ever I feel a bit insecure about what I do (very often , that is). And I like to post more often, but there are more things to life than bloging ;)
Have a nice day!
