I just finished another custom order for my friend Dian. I've totally lost track of how many doll forms that I've made just for her since we first met through the local bead society several years ago....but if I had to guess, I would say that Dian has probably collected enough of them from me to fill a five gallon bucket with nothing but dolls. This time she needed two purple cats, with no tails, that can stand upright all on their own. I can't wait to see how she's planning to bead them! In the meantime, stop by her blog, say hi, and see what she's working on next.

I absolutely LOVE this idea that I found on the Design Sponge Blog! The original project uses and old window, which I didn't have, so I improvised and created my message board from a picture frame that I had stored in the garage. I wrapped the backing board with some of my favorite fabric and added a small (ATC sized) collage of one of my grandmothers childhood photos. All of which was just taped into place so I can change fabrics once I grow tired of this. Viola! A personalized message board for my studio!

As warm weather takes over, I find myself less and less motivated to stay indoors and sew. I would much rather be outside...doing something, anything! Hmmm maybe I should set my sewing machine up on the back deck. I wonder if the neighbors would think I'm some kind of weirdo?

Can't help myself....i still love playing with the Collage Machine ! Actually, I'm avoiding the reorganization of my studio. I hate to admit it but I have developed strange attachments to oddball junk that should be donated, recycled or just plain trashed. Can't figure out how to just let go of things that I might need someday.

I'm slowly coming out of hibernation, now that the weather is warming and Spring is just around the corner. Today I'm working on a few new doll forms...and maybe next week I'll get started on some new plush monsters! You'll find these bunny forms for sale on my website.
