New Life!

***Don't forget about my GIVE AWAY! On May 21st, 7 days from now, I'll be drawing a name out of the box for someone to receive, FREE, a book of my poems AND a crochet/bead necklace that I handmade myself! See the "Connection Rules" posting on this blog for the details.***

Sometimes life, new life, starts with struggle, trying to get acceptance, and labor, but of course there is always...LOVE. This is true, whether you're talking about a new HUMAN baby on the way, my case...a new baby CROCHETED ART CREATION! My poem today was written about my 17 year old niece's pregnancy. But I wanted to share MY new babies too. None of these have ever been seen online...until now. They ALSO came with some struggle, labor, etc. And I'm trying to get some acceptance for them! :-)) First...Let me share my orange and yellow baby! I love how the swirly button matched the color of the bead dangle.
 Then my purple babies. (The camera never shows the purple as pretty as I think it looks in person though.)
I've got some pink too!
 And some green! with a dragonfly button.
I made this brown one with the turquoise because of the brown striding in the top heart-shaped bead. My girlfriend said she wouldn't have thought of these colors together, but I couldn't think of anything else!! LOL
 I have a smaller speckled blue and black baby. [How many people can say that!!! :-))]
  And last, but not least, my two new babies with some red!
 They were all made with LOVE!...None of these are in my shop, and I'm not sure they will be. I just had a friend lovingly agree to try to show some of them in a craft show she's involved in next weekend. I can't wait to see what kind of response they'll get...I hope they don't reject my babies!!! What mother could take that?!!

A New Life

There's  a new one on the way,
with a frightened, teenage mom,
making all her life's  decisions,
void of playfulness and calm.

There's  a little one now coming.
Sacrifice will be the key
to a happy, joyful life,
for this little He or She.

There's  another life that's  ending-
name is "Teenager" and "Child";
Now replaced with "Mom" and "Mother",
Sacrificed may be her smile-
for at least a little while.


  1. Very nice Wug! You've kept all these beauties secret from us! But they're beautiful, and I hope you sell them all next weekend! Keep us posted on that!

  2. Thanks Bead! And believe it or not, this is only a drop in the bucket!!! Told you I was a crocheting fool! LOL Now you know what I mean!

    Have a good weekend!

  3. Your new babies are beautiful! Especially the green dragonfly one :P
