Back from Tom Bishop Show 2014

I am back from Tom Bishop in Chicago !
The show was fantastic as always. I was so blessed to take my youngest son, Ben, with me. We did not take pictures only the one below and the two of me were taken in the bathroom for my daughters. I know... they are not interesting and  full of wonderful miniatures but believe when I say this , its not easy to leave the table and walk around taking pictures. Whenever I was able get away, it was mostly for chatting or buying something.
Tom Bishop show  is the right show to sell or buy. I love it! I truly had a wonderful time and I feel all fire up with new mini ideas. 
My life has changed dramatically these past two years going through divorce after twenty three years of marriage is not something I  ever thought would happened to me, but now, by the Grace of God , I am doing alright and looking forward to what  Christ has for me.
I am currently back in college  for medical sonography, finishing up my second semester . Although my time and priorities have changed, sculpting is in my heart and soul. I took a break but now I am feeling a "call back" (((grin))) soooo , you will see more of it soon.

Happy Happy Easter !!!
Thank you all of you that continue to come and leave me comments even though I have not been around. I love and treasure each of you and appreciate you notes to me!
Have a blessed day!*smiles*

Hi Tita!! It is good to see you have been to the TB show, thank you for sharing the pictures. Oh, I wish I could walk around see all the beautiful miniature work of great artists/miniaturists.
After your time-out of miniatures it is good to hear that you are sculpting again. I can't wait to see what kind of ideas you are having now, but I guess they will be great :D!
I am sorry to hear about your problems/divorce, but it is so clever of you that you are back in college again and that you're doing well now.
I can't wait to see your new work :D!
Lovingly, Ilona

I hope you spent a wonderful Easter with your children. I was glad to read that you have managed to get over your divorce and are following a new path. I'm sure Christ has got wonderful things for you in your new life.
I'm also happy you won't give up miniatures, your work is so great.
