I have been working hard on my craft since 2004, and I think I have a skill level that shows in my work. I am the do over queen and there are many heads without bodies to suggest that these mistakes drive me to the perfect end. The finished doll always seems to lead to the next doll, one is born out of another. This is why I love making dolls. It is the air I breathe and pretty much defines me. I am a doll maker.

This may sound strange but these bodiless heads and headless bodies speak to me. I have control over the parts and pieces individually, but the position involved in the connection is revealed at the moment the pieces touch one another for the first time. The head moves me to sew it in a certain pose, same with the hands and arms. The whole doll forms itself to be expressive according to its idea of itself.

Awakened

I woke up early, 1am, and knew I heard something. Turns out it was 3 of my dolls. They wanted me to get to work on their hats and two wanted arms and they were also ready to put their shoes on.I don't mind waking up to please my dolls. They sat there patiently for 2 weeks while I played the slave. http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5271522.

I get like that with my writing. We never know when the muse might strike us and demand to be let out. I'm loving the blue haired doll. (Hugs)Indigo
