Well unless you are playing in the could be in the house creating! That's what I'm doing. I can't wait to see what the weekend ends with. Will my "Witch" be completed! Will the little "Winged Monkey" be complete?! So much to do. Mixing colors and fabrics. Wow if this is what stuck in the house entails then I want to be stuck!

Well this weekend I didn't get all that I wanted done! Injured my back. But I managed to get doll sewn up, stuffed and with mask baked and ready to be painted. Oh my back has spasms. Lot's of medicine until my grandsons father gave me an exercise. He is an ex football player LOL! So I used his advice. It helped a lot. But as soon as I lift something it comes back. Solution: don't lift unnecessarily. Thank God for the dishwasher. I still cooked dinner though LOL! But back to creating. I have too projects for you. One the surprise and the other one is the winged and flying monkey. I try to work on something everyday. I have a lot of days until my "Art Is" class. But I am preparing everyday. This is not just going to be a class but an extravaganza!! I'm telling you no one can do it like me! LOL! I want to form a doll club after this class so that we can meet regularly. LOL! So much stuff. So many give give aways, raffles, and student prizes. Get so excited when I think about this class and this doll. I have 4 divas on the butchers block for completion. I am determined.I am trying her so many different ways for all questions. Oh well we will see.

Sometimes people can almost make you lose your creative spirit! Whew! I may get knocked to my knees, but I will never be knocked out! Like the little engine that could I will keep creating, keep creating, keep creating......

Wicked Diva's

Well! I am going to do it. First my husband suggested it and I said no. I am not going to do it. But then as a tribute to one of my favorite fashion designers Alexander McQueen I have consented. So it's going to be a surprise. I owe the idea to my husband and the house of McQueen! Coming soon. I am working on it this weekend. Stay tuned!!

This is the big project for me this year. Entering the fashion world with this wicked witch!!! More pictures to come. The theme is "The Wizard of Oz"! Being wicked is my thing.

Haute Couture

Imagine dolls in haute couture. Well there is a doll magazine that says just that. And thats where you will find some of the latest fashion. Wait until my next lady doll! Pink is not always fluffy and cute. Wait until you see this next pretty in pink lol! The doll designs for this doll will take you to unlimited possibilities. I cant wait for my students to decide how they will proceed with their doll. The hair is sooo much fun to do. I am on the look out for wig pieces everywhere. I can't wait to see the look on students faces when they enter my world.
