When You Are the VALENTINE Queen

Alexandria Elizebeth is the Queen
{she believes this to be so}

{she reigns quite fancily and has a heart of gold}

Parties are her favorite thing ever,
especially for
so she dons her party hat to prepare for the palace festivities

Just the thought of Valentine's Day
makes her giddy with anticipation.
She is planning a party for all her friends!


Alexandria Elizebeth is a mouse I made of paper mache.
Would you like to see how she started out?
(she was made just for fun, I am not a paper mache artist, and I know she's rather primitive)

I began by making an armature with a piece of a chop stick and wire,
covering the (ping pong ball) head and torso with aluminum foil.
I used Celluclay, a paper mache product, to form the shape.

After she dried, my little helper worked on painting her.

I then painted the finishing touches, and made her tutu, crown and party hat.

She is a Happy Mouse Queen!

... Crown or Party Hat?  It depends on her mood ...
{and the occasion of course}

I believe I also want to be
The Valentine Queen

How about you?

Ohh...are ya kidding? I want to reign as well as LA REINE! But I think the Kingdom only has room for one mouse, and she is IT! My friend, don't ya just love this thing we do, called LOVE? Love of art, love for family and friends, love to wake up each day with an idea, no matter how great or small, but to work it out, with our own hands? I call if living, not just breathing, but living. How I adore the work of YOUR hands.
