But-- I did get a p ix of the red-fairy --who is finally finished --- had trouble with her feet ---long story--- but she is fini-- finally~~~I sent my swaps -- and I have two lil ladies in the closet crying for me to finish them before I make more useful items for the family..

I offered to make two Colombian Dolls for a South American event at school..Well the gal is almost finihed but I didnt take pixs along the way because I had so many things go wrong..The mohair I used for the hair grew all over her and I did so much to tame it I finally pulled it all off and I also ruined the face Oh My Then after I had her all dressed--- the Spanish teacher-- who is from Colombia-- suggested a differen material -- but NO way am I going to change a thing -- and the male doll which- I did get a pix of --before I have finished -- is up for all to see in all his errors -- Well ya know-- W8man are more touchy-- than men about you seeing them less than perfect hohohohohoho

when my things appeal to my youngest grandaughter I find them in her room hoho I luv it-- Kids are my best critics..Now I have to make a polar bear as the kids fell in love with this bear-- when they went to Atlanta with their mom and if my plate isnt full enough We have umpteen birthdays in NOVEMBER!!!!
I actually worked on a doll til I finished her!! I love fall colors -- so maybe all the beautiful colored fat quarters inspired me??? OOps I forgot to show all the lil buttons I sewed on her..but I love the ornament she is holding..I have a request for a winter fairy like the red fiary oh my glad they dont want a duplicate!!!!!!!!
I cant seem to finish this lil red fairy I guess when I worry too much about the outcome!?!? I start to hesitate?? Anyway-- I took a break and pulled out a UFO..Of course I was going to take step by step pixs but welllll I did take a few..The doll's face was already peciled in so allI did was pull out my water color pecils and gave her dome color the I did a lil needle sculpting and I put on rust suade yarn for hair I love faces and on to the legs I loved the knee bead used so I went thru my fat quarters and found almost a match !! The I threw my fat quarter on the table and started her costume I like my legs a lil longer that this doll so I filled in the ankle which I covered and added a foot and made some shoes I was on a roll!!!

I think I can --I think I can!! Can "what" you say??--Well a friend sent a box of--- UFOS ---and said -- See what you can do with these?? Welllll--- I always like a challenge--My only problem is--Will "she" like--- what I do with them!?!?!We all have such different taste(that is what makes it so interesting --dont you think??) and as you can see-- my newest love is anime..Whatever -- Here is my box of UFOS !! Sorry !! I was in such a hurry to get started--- I didnt "think" (not that is a bothersome problem with me hahah)to pick the first body WHY that one??because she had such a colorful body (and no head) I love to do faces.My friend does gorgeous ART DOLLS.. But she did say-- Go for it-- so here is what I came up with ..and I must have six or more bodies..but some of these already have heads-- and some even have a face sketched in-- SO to get started --I found one I could really have my way with-- haha --thanks Velia !! it has put some life back into my creative spirit!?!?! Which I thot-- I had lost forever with my recent loss--- Ready?? tell me what you think--hohoho I asked for trouble didnt L??

Someone asked-- if I have given up on pretty dolls and cloth dolls!?!? NOPE-- just gratifying WHIMS!! Lets see I have used paper clay(example -- my red hat lady)-- I have use cernit (Lord Farklemore ) who has a needle-felted cat with a clay face) I have done dolls skinned in nylon(stockings) ---cotton --silk --leather-- porcelain --Some have won awards and some have been in magazines ---and all are adopted...Sadly I havent kept track of most of them It wasnt until I joined an online doll club that I decided to take a few pictures ..but the only looking back I will do is to put up a few I do have pictures of..some of these are on my picturetrail and a few people have said they would send pics of their adopted dolls anyway Like I said -- Ya never know-- which way-- I will decide on next week---!?!?!
My new love --for the week --at least-- is BUNKA dolls --I think these can be called that?? The ones I saw on the internet were pretty lil things.. But with Halloween due.. I almost did some Day of the Dead dolls-- but my heart wasnt in it (. Due to a recent death of a family member-)- --Now --these lil ones-- with a comic Halloween twist--- seem to fit the bill-- See how they dance around my computer ??I am haunted `~~I may just try some pretty ones too-- as I loved a couple I saw on the internet!! But would you believe??these are already spoken for Oh my ya just never know!?!?!?!

is how well --my -creations blend with Natures !! I will post some started and some finished----I know --Not everyone-- likes these things-- but "someone" might --and too-- It wont be long before I am on to another-- fun--thing -- so bear with me--- and let me know --what you think!!??? Hmm I may wish I had never said that Oh welll!!!
I think --if I could stick to-- one art --and perfect it..I could call myself an artist !! but-- as soon as I finish one project-- I see another-- I want to try --Of course with the internet --feeding this mostorous curiousity !!!--Still --- I cant just blame the internet-- as I have always had this (artistic?) ADD--- a case in point---My brother just sent me some childhood (colored Chalk) drawings --and said-- What happened ?? I was sure you would be an artist someday !! ?? My reply-- was that I hadn't reallly found my niche yet!! Too many crafts and so little time!! The drawing I am posting-- was of Pika..my then cat-- and I am posting my now (live cat) Mr Moo --because he sits on my craft (and computer) table and keeps me company.. Well if stting on my computer-- and swatting-- and tasting my crafts.. makes him company SOBEIT!! --Also --he is the only one-- who thinks my crafting is interesting..brownie points for him!!
