Just wanted to share and wish you all a Happy Mother's Day!

SO I wanted to wait to share this with you because I just had so much fun doing it... My good friend Anna commissioned a piece for her Mom for Mother's Day. I didn't want to spoil the surprise, so I wanted to wait until her Mom knew about her surprise before I posted it :). Anna's Mom is a school nurse, more specifically, a very patient middle school nurse. Anna came up with a great idea for her Mother's desk at school, hopefully, this will motivate some particularly whiny students to get back to their studies ;). The base says "Get back to class!". Wonderful idea Anna, I had so much fun making her.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mommies, Nanas, and Grandmoms!

Happy Mother's Day, of course, to those of you who have made a difference in the life of a child and given of yourselves unselfishly. After all, 'it takes a village'... For those of you who are valuable part of our village; Anna, Jessica, Heidi and Tiffan, Ms. Laura, Mrs. C., Ms. Jeaninne, Ms. Amy and Ms. Patricia, words will never fully express my deep admiration and infinite gratitude... XXOO, Katie

So just what is a Pooka you ask????

A new ornament challenge is coming up for the HA31 group, "Challenge Pooka". Since the only thing I know about Pookas is from an old Jimmy Stewart movie, I found some info on the web...
This one sounds like fun :)!!! Be sure to check out the cool offerings on EBAY May 16th-18th.

No fairy is more feared in Ireland than the pooka. This may be because it is always out and about after nightfall, creating harm and mischief, and because it can assume a variety of terrifying forms.
The guise in which it most often appears, however, is that of a sleek, dark horse with sulphurous yellow eyes and a long wild mane. In this form, it roams large areas of countryside at night, tearing down fences and gates, scattering livestock in terror, trampling crops and generally doing damage around remote farms.

In remote areas of County Down, the pooka becomes a small, deformed goblin who demands a share of the crop at the end of the harvest: for this reason several strands, known as the 'pooka's share', are left behind by the reapers. In parts of County Laois, the pooka becomes a huge, hairy bogeyman who terrifies those abroad at night; in Waterford and Wexford, it appears as an eagle with a massive wingspan; and in Roscommon, as a black goat with curling horns.

The mere sight of it may prevent hens laying their eggs or cows giving milk, and it is the curse of all late night travellers as it is known to swoop them up on to its back and then throw them into muddy ditches or bogholes. The pooka has the power of human speech, and it has been known to stop in front of certain houses and call out the names of those it wants to take upon its midnight dashes. If that person refuses, the pooka will vandalise their property because it is a very vindictive fairy.
