Just fun...


Because I have chickens....

Another Award

 Thank you Joanna http://joannathomasdolls.blogspot.com for giving me the 
Kreativ Blogger award...
I am to tell 7 things about myself.

1) I love to travel. It always refreshes my soul. I think I have the nomadic gene.

2) I love thrift stores. I seem to find some of the most amazing things for my dolls there.

5) I love the odd and unusual.

And now for the rest of this award....

I'm having to do this in 2 different posts... 
I'm to pass this award to 8 other blogs that I feel are deserving... which is hard because I feel all the blogs I follow are deserving.

This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.

The trolls I've seen on google images all seem to have red noses. Also red topped mushroom with white dots (supposedly poisons)

A new Troll


"Don't Feed the Trolls"
This is a toll that when he's finished will go on Etsy.
He needs to be assembled, have his hair and moss and what ever else I think of added.

Poor Harold Time


He is stuck forever in moments in time... Surrounded by clocks ticking... Wondering "What time is it?"

Harold is in a shadow box...
with vintage watch pieces...

More on Etsy




I listed 3 more things on Etsy. It's so much easier than ebay.
I'm trying to make room for some other creations that I have floating around in my head.
A framed 3D head of one of my most favorite doll, a goblin pin and a very unhappy fairy~

Goblin Mask on Etsy!


I've got a Goblin mask door hanger... a protector of your home and or business.
It's on my Etsy which you can see on the right hand side of my blog.
He was fun to make and is one of 3 so far.
Thanks for looking.

A few more pictures...



Of the Art doll Traveling Project. ADO
I've been hard at work getting 3 dolls done for challenges not to mention other challenges at the Dark Artist Guild and MRSBO. 2 great groups!

Since the rains have returned it's a good time to stay in and finish...dolls and journals.
Clean up my studio room for one thing. Sometimes I do think it's the little green goblins at work. They love to go through my ribbons and vintage velvets. Beads and watch parts all over the floor sometimes. Oh my, but what would I do without them. : )

Washington Art Doll Challenge



Hi~
I'm also doing an Art Doll Challenge Exchange with 4 other women. I've had this doll hanging around for many a day, many many a day... finally when I knew that there were wonderful seamstress's that were going to work on my doll this was the doll I chose for the challenge. He's probably one of the largest dolls I've done 13"!

Traveling Art Doll Project~


Hello all,
I just received my first doll for the Traveling Art Doll Project with the ADO (Art Dolls Only). 
I received the beautiful mask from Patti LaValley. She's wonderful and I'm already adding things to her and her journal. This is so much fun I will send my doll to Lisa.

Art Doll Traveling Show...



I'm apart of ADO "Art Dolls Only" There are I think 2 groups of 6 that are exchanging dolls with journals... I'm so excited!
Here's the beginning of mine.
When I added the top layer of clay and smoothed it down it left a heart that I have incorporated into the design.
Thanks

2 New Steampunked Fish Pins



Ok I'm having too much fun with vintage watch parts...
and scuply. The unfortunate thing with these watch parts are they are so small. I need tweezers.  If they fall on the floor... well too bad. Another screw lost.

I hope you'll enjoy seeing these 2 new pins.
And I encourage all of you to try it once!
