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.

Excellent advise, Marcia. UTIs can cause disorientation and pain for older women, too. My mother suffered from them and didn't ask for help. I found a good physician who gently explained the problem. Action Fuel PRO Oh your poor mom! I feel so bad but happy you were able to get her some help. A lot of women are too ashamed to say anything until the pain becomes unbearable, http://www.supplements4help.com/action-fuel-pro-scam/
