candlestick doll

This is my latest candlestick doll. Quite a dramatic lady isn't she??? I dolls turn out looking like their maker is that me? Nah!!!


I've been taking some sculpting lessons and am quite happy about my work so far. Here are photos of work in progress.

Items donated to 'Save the 'Ta Tas'

The Fabric Floozies, the doll club I'm now a member of, are sponsoring a breast cancer silent auction at Gallery 225 in Gilbert, AZ on October 15. I will be donating some of my art pieces, a piece of figurative art, a bracelet and a bag. Here you can see the doll and the bracelet

My figurative art from the RenoIowa Retreat

This year was my first time at the retreat held in Marshalltown, Iowa where Sherry Goshon and Jean Bernard team teach new art doll techniques. It was extremely intense and after 3 days we all went home exhausted but so inspired and happy. We all had our pieces to finish so here is mine. I am so excited about the way she turned out!!!

Soo far behind

Sorry, I'm so far behind in posts!!!! So will attempt to do a quick catchup here. It is hot and sultry here in AZ so a good time to stay inside. I'm posting some photos recalling some of what I've been up to. Going back to May when I attended CIFI with some gal pals. I will post picture of my class doll made in Arley Berryhill's class. Learned some new techniques. Also did Jean Bernard's internet class doing doll tiaras. Will show more and describe as I go along.

Since we moved to Sun City Anthem at Merrill Ranch I've also become busy starting a new Fiber Arts club and joining a new doll club, The Fabric Floozies so will try to update happenings with them as well as the other art I'm doing on my own.

I haven't posted in ages. Just too busy playing and doing physical therapy for my back. It is so much better since the new injections and PT. I am working on more of the brooches and am actually making a quilt top from a pattern so not much creativity on that. I did do several soft stuffed and embellished heart valentines for the club and to mail to my kids. More soon.
