Tonight’s Project

I have (accidentally) discovered that I enjoy restoring broken statues.  This is the second Mary that I have fixed and repainted this week.  Her hand was detached and a chunk of it was missing.  The tip of her nose was broken off due to a fall.  I had to rebuild the missing part of one hand with some spackling, sand it when dry and repaint the whole statue – with the exception of the base, eyes and mouth.  I think she looks pretty good!  It was a fun project!

About danardoyle

I am a Catholic, working wife and mother. I have three children ages 7, 14 and 21. I am extremely busy, as you can imagine. I aim each and every day to put God first in my life, to teach my children the Faith, to be a supportive spouse, keep the house in order, and do my job outside of the home well, too. That's an impossible task - without Divine intervention! Here, I hope to share my triumphs and struggles with other working moms in the same boat. I will share the tools I have discovered to making it all work - most days!
