Patricia Ann

God is good, all the time. My middle name Ann comes from my Grandma Pat’s middle name, Patricia Ann, who went to be with the Lord yesterday. I wrote an earlier piece titled “My young Grandma” she was in the hospital for pneumonia and did not want a feeding tube. She is no longer suffering and died with Jesus in her heart, God is my comfort and holds those who are His close to His heart.

Inupiaq doll

My mom taught me how to make Inupiaq dolls. Ivory face and hands. Muskrat and calfskin parka, seal skin leggings and boots with beaver trim. She used her hair for the dolls hair as well. Intricate detailed work. A dying art passed on to the next generation 💕
