I've been mulling over ideas of what to get my mom for Christmas. Of course, she doesn't want anything, and has threatened me if I send her something. So, I decided to do a tag book of my grandmother. She was baptized Anastasia, much to the displeasure of her parents, but the priest wanted her named after a saint instead of simply Stella. But she has always been known as Stella. She had a hard life. The last nine years of her life were spent in the grips of dementia. She passed just over 100 years old. I do remember how lovingly she'd brush mu hair and rub my back (I was the first grandchild). So, I'm offering the first tag of my tribute to "Anastasia" for this theme.
Born and raised a city girl (Chicago). Now I live 23 miles south of D.C. Have loved art all my life. Primarily self taught. Raised 3 sons solo and they are my pride and joy. I have a 7 yr old granddaughter and a 2 year old grandson. They are the apples of my eye, and I hope they will love art as I do.
