"Axenia"

I can't post without adding a picture! That's sort of like the saying my hubby always said when he grew a moustache. "A kiss without a moustache is like an egg without salt." A blog without a picture is like ... A puppy without a lick! A star without a twinkle. A baby without a cuddle. An ark without a flood. A lake without a fish. A bouquet without a flower. You get the idea. So, here is the pizzazz for now: "Axenia" the Alutiiq Teddybear! A friend of mine just created her for me. She dresses teddybears and I suggested to her that I would love an Alutiiq doll. I sent her the drawing, on the left. She did some research then she sewed and beaded this beautiful doll for me. She worked so hard! I named the teddybear after my paternal gramma, Axenia. Vicki, the artist, lives in Idaho. She does beautiful work. I have not received "Axenia" yet, but she should be winging her way to Alaska real soon! I can't wait to look at every bead and the details Vicki sewed on to this bear. Speaking of looking, here's something else you may be VERY interested to look at. There is a wealth of information found on the Internet anymore! You can find out most anything about anything or anyone! This website was passed on to me by my son Kris. It allows visitors to view drivers licenses! You need to know a person's full name then you can view their personal drivers license data!!!! (Their REAL age and even their weight, hehehe.) Look up yours, see if you are listed. P.S. If you want to you can remove your information, if you prefer to remain as private as possible.

Did you all notice how the word verification sometimes looks like actual words? I find myself trying to pronounce them sometimes.

Does the lady have a website showing her work? It would be nice to see what all she has crafted.
