Primitive Dolls & Sweet Nothings
*Snippets from my life*

OK I give up on trying to arrange these pictures. You will get the idea. This is the doll in Art Doll Quarterly. I tried to scan the pictures from the magazine but they didn't turn out. Then I tried to use my camera...still no luck. I feel so priveledged to have her in there. I am famous now...and am expecting a call from Oprah anyday to be on her show! (this is the place you are supposed to be laughing) The submission was for a doll made from recycled materials. The new term is to upcycle. All of my dolls are from recycled materials so it was a simple request. Jane Desrosier was the one who organized the doll group I am in to do a group submission. I had never looked at the magazine before. It is filled with all kinds of dolls...some I love and others not so much. But I love the creativity and just the love of making dolls. They come alive as you work on them and whisper stories in your ear, if you have the heart to listen....
Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow. Helen Keller
I live in a postcard picture in Montana and I love walks in the woods, floating down rivers, finding old things, making new things out of them, sewing, swimming, praying, praying more, growing flowers outside, painting stuff, laughing with girlfriends, snowshoeing and X-country skiing, baking and eating what I bake, dieting...always dieting
