"MY" style!!!! All my creations seem to be so different that I was told..they cant be picked out as--- MY Style!!! But getting closer heheheh---Do have --two --big eyed gals in my latest creations--- of cloth dolls---Nothing like my clay dolls or my nylon-sculpted dolls or or my wooden dolls-- And----Two dolls in this pix --have embroidered faces and the other two are painted---I have even tried blank faces--I think Mr Moo is trying to tell me...No more ( or slow down)--the web browsing====So--- my fickle muse can walk a straighter path-- Too late----I have a new book from Japan on felting and I have been browsing Russian blogs-- SO in awe of these gals and their work-- I have pinned a half dozen or so of their creations --on my Pinterst---Soooo Who cares about finding a style---- I am having too much fun--- experimenting with everyone else's---Not copying tho--- as my dolls never even come out like I PLAN---and sometimes they are sooo off the wall--I even wonder where they come from?????HMMMMMMMBut there is nothing like wallowing (can I say that??_) in a variety of creative juices elsewhere--to refresh you own creative spring..Now to start my newest projects and not just THINK about them!!!!

she packs them up for school ----I did a quick shot----Not a very flattering pix of her hard work Always photographs better on the porch in daylight---etc----The lil glass frog hides himself so well in the grass that I was lucky his face showed-up The jellyfish just shines so pretty in the light and the snake is --I think the best-- Still good or bad shot..I now have proof of this project to save for her and proof (to all--hihi) that we are still creating at Jandees play space-----
I am feeling better !?!? Yep I was sick---- hate those times-- dont feel like doing much-- Which has been (and hopefully will be ) rare around here !! The Rarer the better I say--- Cuz when I feel better Look what we get done--- Dolly is happy--because she has her outfit and then there is Kami and her school projects

No --wait--- I mean journal-ing --- in a "dreamy" state of mind??? As I have said before--I revert to drawing-- when I need an "easy"- get to--artistic outlet ---(drawing has always been my best outlet)...I have tried journal-ing ---as you can do a lot of mixed media with that----- But after pretty-ing up the pages --I am at a loss...Never kept a diary -- Words are work for me !!?!?!Well words that convey a wise or meaningful message!!! but I did "try" to journal---- And---I had marbled some paper a while back and drew people on them---..Loved that ---but these pages were done with sprayed inkandThe dragonfly was made of fantasy paper -- and the lil lady dancing on the lace was a left over ( Shrink plastic) charm ---I had made for a swap--and she is dancing on a piece of lace--I found---In other words --my ufos are finally getting recycled into something--- I think!?!?!?!

Been trying to decide ----just "WHAT" ---I want to do this year????The US is on a fiscal cliff and I --am fighting a creative BLOCK!!! in other words standing on my own cliff!?!?! How do I know??I have surfed the internet and didn't find a thing--I wanted to try--- Isn't that just ---SAD!?!?!----I've catered.. (weddings and all sort of parties)---I have painted.. (in every media-- oils --watercolors--colored pencils and special crayons--charcoal --etc)I have made toys in every media---(clay --wood --cloth tin etc) I have sewn for people--(weddings -- costumes etc)-I have made jewelry -- Zowee--- name it --AND I AM PRETTY SURE i HAVE TRIED IT!!! (and -- yesssss----gotten paid---- for most) Sadly--I am one of the original--Jill of all trades and master of none!!! Instead of a burning desire to master a craft..I've had a burning desire--- to try my hand at everything that is out there---Either way-- I think --I am sort of burned out right now----SO forgive me if I lay low awhile----and if anyone thinks they have found a solution for all this---- Just let me know!!! bIG HUGS FROM A LOST CRAFTER AKA jANDEE
