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.

For Real Fridays

If I am anything it is thrifty. I hardly ever buy anything new. All my furniture belonged to someone else. I use to love shopping for what was considered retro. I suppose my style would be post modern eclectic. Clean lines with minimal bedazzle (dust collects in the dazzle). I have started thinking that it would be nice to buy something brand new, so what I am dreaming about is this bed.I spied this at CSN Stores
It would be the perfect match to my style, and it would stop me from hiding things under my bed . . .

Now something for the rest of you.
A CSN Giveaway for anyone in the U.S. or Canada.
A $40 gift certificate to any of CSN's stores
