But..what if you can’t smile? What if your facial expression cannot change?
1-2 children in every 1,000,000 children are born with a rare congenital nerve disorder called Moebius Syndrome. While it can result in a spectrum of issues, most notably in those affected are the cranial VI and VII nerves controlling the lateral movement of the face. There is not a lot known about this, and it is pretty rare, but our dear Diva has a son that was born with it. So with that, as we do every January, we recognize Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day on Sunday, January 24th.(#MSAD2016).
Here is my contribution (#251):
In part of my effort to “Finish What I Started” this year, I picked up a piece of watercolor paper that I had used up some sparkly paint water to wash a background, and actually tangled it….the cool part that doesn’t really show up in the scan is that the mica sparkle from the Twinkling H2O paint shows through the pen, and gives a really intense beauty to this piece. I am really rather a harsh critic of my own work, but I really like this one.
The February Schedule is up on the Class and Kumi pages. We have been having an awful lot of fun, so you really should consider joining us!
I am working on the sample for the February Valentangle, and will have that up here with the next posting. It is a “sweetheart” of a card!
I am also working up some samples of t-shirt designs that you can tangle and color and make your own…wear your art!
I know for those of us who love music and good movies, this has been a rough last 2 weeks. I mourn the loss of several people who have had a huge influence on my life…
David Bowie made it ok for me to be weird and change a lot.
Alan Rickman showed me that the appearance of darkness does not always mean bad things.
And my dear Glenn Frey taught me to take it easy.
Namas’cray my friends! Make stuff…you will feel better!
