have been working on my first paper dolls. Do you know that when I was a little girl I had an entire dresser drawer full of paper dolls. I still have a few but paper dolls were my favorite. I used to cut out images of women, babies and men and make my own paper dolls. I even cut out sofa's, beds, curtains, heck I had an entire family and their home cut out of a catalog. I had so much fun and here I am making paper dolls again. These are my first and I want to practice so I can make some special paper dolls for my granddaughter Bri.
This is just the beginning. I need to put them on thin cardboard and then seal them with Golden Matte.
Oh I am having too much fun again!
May 8th is my niece Mandy's birthday and I made her a birthday card. I also did a "mail art" envelope.
I was going through some of my Mothers things and I ran across this old Christmas cookie tin filled with buttons. I remember her always cutting the buttons off of old clothes when they wore out . How would she know that someday I would need these buttons for embellishments on my collages? I think there is enough to share with all of my friends too....oodles and oodles and oodles of buttons!!
Another busy weekend. It started with a fashion show with my friend on Friday. That was fun. Don't know why I didn't take pictures of the models and the fashion show itself. Daaahh!
They had a silent auction and these dolls were part of that. I thought about bidding on them until I saw the starting bid $82.00 on one and $95.00 on the other one. Hummm...not today.
This is a picture of one of my favorite barns. It is on the road to my lane. I have been meaning to take a picture of it for 2 years now. Finally had my camera ready !
I think spring is finally here. These are my rhoddies in full bloom.
Also my ornamental cherry tree is blooming.
It was a good weekend. I notice that the blogging world is a bit quiet right now and I suspect that it is because everyone is outside enjoying the warm spring weather finally...right?
