Lone Boot - Happy Boot Series

Posted by MACKart on April 16, 2013 0 Comments

Lone Boot is part of my "Happy Boot" Series.  It is "Lone Boot" because the mountain on the boot is Lone Mountain.  I wanted to bring out the bright sunshine and moonlight enjoyed by Lone Mountain.  It is a wonderful ski hill and a magnificent vista that radiates "don't miss out".  It is also "lone" because there is only 1 boot!  

The “Happy Boot” Series is just pure fun. They feature our favorite places surrounded by moonlight, sunshine, bright colors and the pure joy we feel when we take in the view. Happy Trails in those boots.....that boot!!

Spanish Boot - Happy Boot Series

Spanish Boot is part of my "Happy Boots" Series. It is Spanish Boot because the mountains on the boot are the Spanish Peaks.  They were named after Spanish settlers.  It is sporting the colors of the Spanish flag and a few extra flares because we all want to break into a flamenco dance when we see those peaks!

Best Friend

Posted by MACKart on April 16, 2013 0 Comments

She can find a laugh even in life’s darkest offerings.  She is the silver lining in every cloud (hence the cloud skirt).  The layers of her top suggest the many layers of friendship shared.   She loves beautiful, mountainous places....and is equally comfortable in a lush green forest.  That said, a day on the beach is never far from the back of her mind!  Her mitten color is blue for big, clear, blue skies. Her necklace is a symbol of her respect for cultures not her own.  She is doing the laughing dance and knows just what to say!

Woman of Faith

Posted by MACKart on April 16, 2013 0 Comments

 "Woman of Faith" has no particular denomination. She is every religious woman with faith in her heart, who cares deeply about continually improving herself and making the world a better place. Her crown is adorned with the holy books that speak to her (words fly into her heart), her light in the world, balancing diverse viewpoints, water, love, food, and the last symbol on her left is for finding faith in the earth's remarkable beauty. Her dress layers display her helping hands, her light in the world, love and respect for the earth, it's atmosphere, people and creatures (hence the DNA with footprints), water and plants. Her goal is to bring peace, food, water, kindness and love to the world. Peace is the final panel of the skirt or the ultimate goal.

Mighty Grandma

Posted by MACKart on April 21, 2012 0 Comments



“World Champ Mighty Grandma” is the quote on her prize rodeo belt buckle. When she comes to visit, she brings along the sunshine, all of her worldly wisdom and love for the grandkids. She may have “blue” hair, but she has energy to rival the 6 year old boys and comes into lives as a whirlwind who sets everyone right. Her great loves are family, traveling, the Rocky Mountains, music and learning. The grandkids are painted in varying sizes, youngest painted as largest since they need (and get) the most good Grandma care. When she is around things get done, the kids behave, and somehow it’s all in good fun!

Mother and Daughter

Posted by MACKart on April 21, 2012 0 Comments



As with the other characters in the Woman's Life Dance Series, “Mother and Daughter” is multi-ethnic and wears a crown of her greatest attributes.  She has been given love, DNA, water, fish (representing food), and has many blank talents for her crown (to be filled in as she grows older).  Her clothing is covered in people she loves, water, mountains and the sun (her needs and loves).  Her cuffs are decorated with peace.  She is guiding the earth, because she is the next keeper of the earth.  She will treat it in a manner that reflects how she is taught.  What a gift to us all, to have a little daughter...may we teach her well.

Fish Mom

Dignified and Tough -

She is elegant and yet can handle anything in her Xtra-Tuf boots. She is a fisherwoman and is not phased by the worst from weather or anything that hard work has to throw at her. She can balance her children, as well as her livelihood, with grace and dignity. She loves her family (including pets), friends and the cultural things in life, like music, art and literature. But, mountains, wildlife and water are her life's breath.
