I'm BACK!!!!!!!!

I had an absolutely Fabulous time teaching in Vegas. The Ladies were so nice and thoughtful, I dreaded having to leave.
The work they produced in only a few days, left even me in awe. I found myself teary-eyed more than once as I held each little painted head in my hand. The elaborate mosaic bases were breathtaking. Most had never worked with mosaics and all said they enjoyed it and will likely tile again.
The first 2 days of class seemed to fly by, lots to do with the sculpting and painting of the face, and the Apoxy sculpt. Sure wish they would have been able to finish the apoxy, but these ladies are even more particular than I am. Most have worked with this awesome product and wanted to keep adding more and more detail---AND hey, I'm not one to argue-LOL!!! Thank goodness I kept the costuming VERY simple and they were dressing their dolls faster than I could read. Oh my, speaking of costumes, I could not believe the fabrics these ladies chose---loved them all. I cannot wait to see all of these dolls completed. Unfortunately, pictures do not do them justice. They do however, offer you a glimpse of this intense process and give me a most sentimental keepsake of both the doll and the doll maker.
Fran and her husband Ken, made my stay a most memorable one. They made me feel right at home, and are so similar to my family, that I felt I was amongst my own relatives.
Thanks to Each and Every Wonderful Doll Maker I met this past weekend---I'll cherish this experience forever...

ViVa Las VegaS!!!

One week and counting. Next Thursday I'll be heading to Las Vegas to teach my very first workshop. I can hardly wait!!!
The group I'm teaching, are Fabulous artists and a bunch of good sports too. You see, no one knew what I had up my sleeve, or should I say, under Nissa's skirt until they received their pre-work assignment. Needless to say, they are trying something they've not tried before---creating a doll base adorned with gorgeous mosaics.
So this will be the last post until I return on the 27th. Hopefully I'll have LOTS of pictures to share. Stay Tuned!!!
