Making Beads?

I did some Winter cleaning last week and stubbled upon some supplies I purchased a LONG time ago. I started playing with bits and pieces and paints and powders, etc. and before I knew it, I had made some really cool looking beads. Lots of work as usual, but they are really unique looking.
I have them up on my Etsy shop. Have a Peek!!!

Aldora Face-Up?

As you may recall, I taught Aldora at MM&M this past April. I must admit, I never was really satisfied with her face and I’m sure my students can recall me telling them I still needed to further enhance the facial features. Well, last night I decided Aldora must undergo a ‘face-up’ so she can venture off into the world. That’s right, Aldora is completed, to my satisfaction (LOL), and is available through my Etsy Store. She’s much more dramatic and exotic looking. I’m very pleased with the final result. Hopefully, her new owner will be too…

Coming Soon on eBay

It's been a long time since I've made a Prim doll. In fact, it's been a long time since I made a doll period. My sis borrowed my sewing machine for nearly 2 months so I decided to purchase a doll 'blank' from a seller on Etsy. This little gal has been painted, stained with coffee, sanded, enhanced with pencils, pigma, pastels, gel pen, and sealant. I finally was able to clothe the sweetie, thanks to my sis returning my machine. A few finishing touches and she'll be available on eBay. I will add a link to the auction very soon.

Marcus wore a mask and I took photos of him at night, but they just didn't turn out-(he wore all black with a mask). Boys will be boys. LOL!!!

ATC's NOW on eBay!!!

Just wanted to give everyone a sneak peek at what I will be putting up on eBay later tonight.

These 3 girls were created with watercolors, ink, acrylic, decorative paper, and sealant. The soft pastel colors were inspired by the beautiful Asian decorative paper I happened to stumble across the other day.

Sweet Marlene shows off her doll which is "Hot to Trot"
The Very talented, Camille Pratt. Thanks for sharing your beauties with me... Keep me posted about what we talked about... LOL!!!
Norma and Laura share their incredible DIP(S).
Laura and her lovely gal.
Nancie and Carol show off their 'hotties'.
Nancie added hair---WOW!!!
This is Stephanie's first doll. Amazing!
Kerry making a Very elaborate headdress.
Laura showing her lush, lavender lady.
Veronica incorporated vivid blues, burgundy, and gold for this beauty.
Brilliant color and lots of beading went into Trudi's lovely lady.
Joyce and Liz, in a "world of their own" LOL!!!

Joyce (left) created this soft, subtle beauty with the most angelic eyes and Liz worked my techniques on an Awesome flat face. My buddy Dorothy, from MM&M, joined me again for another workshop. She zipped through the face and did a Beautiful job. Adrienne flew in from Chicago to join us for the workshop. She did an Amazing job on her face sculpting, I cannot wait to see how she completes her.
OH, what a Terrific time I had. This past weekend, I taught The Material Girls of Houston and loved every minute of it!!! The ladies were so kind and receptive, I couldn't ask for a nicer group. As you all can see, the dolls turned out fantastic! Each one looks different and has a personality all "her" own. I am so proud...
I stayed with Marlene Slobin and must say, she could possibly be the most sweetest person one could ever encounter. She and I had such fun talking, working on her doll, watching HGTV, shopping, and cooking.
Ladies-I'll cherish these memories for a long time. Thanks for having me!

Houston Workshop


I cannot believe it's been over a month since I posted. Truth is, I have been SWAMPED with work. So busy, that I haven't had time to take a decent photo of my workshop doll, until this morning. Her name is "Dahling" and I will be teaching her to The Material Girls of Houston this weekend. She's a fun piece, with lots of bling going on. I cannot wait to see what the members will create. I'll be sure to share photos on Monday.

Stay tuned................

Back to Normal

Well it's been awhile since I had time to myself. Family has been in town since MM&M and I had to be most hospitable.

I am catching up fast, (thank-goodness) and managed to send off some items in the mail today.

Wormie/Snail Girl is one of them. She was made for an altered article of clothing round robin I'm involved in with some Wonderful artists. This piece was designed for Sue and consists of hand painted sateen, Angelina film, glass baubles, micro beads, and glass beads. I think she looks quite at home amongst the beautiful beaded flowers done by Cherie and Jacque...

MM&M, was an absolute Blast!!!

I had a terrific time, met some fabulous people, reunited with a few folks, and loved sharing my techniques with fellow artists.

The ladies hustled right along and the pieces they produced were Amazing!!! I hope to have photos of the finished dolls soon---I look forward to sharing them with you.

Annie is the BEST host one could wish for. She is cordial, professional, hilarious, honest, and humble---LOVE that woman!!!

MM&M was a great teaching experience for me and I am so grateful to those who joined Barb and I for this conference.

I look forward to attending the next MM&M in September. Doll Artists Cyndi Mahlstadt and Cindee Moyer will be teaching this time and the class samples are BEAUTIFUL!!! I'm counting the days...................

Another Round Robin leaves

It's been a s-l-o-w week for me. I have been having way too much fun with my allergies, NOT!!!

I did manage to finish (finally) my contribution to Cherie's denim jacket. She's such a petite gal, there wasn't that much space to work with. So, I opted to make a collaged face pin. This way, she can stick it where ever she wants-LOL!!! No pun intended.

Jacque did the beautiful bead work, doily, and dye job. She started a Victorian theme and I went along for the ride...

I hope you're liking it so far Cherie.

Girl Window
Gypsy Window

I just received word that once again, Angela Jarecki will be offering her "Windows" class on Doll Street.
I took this class nearly 5 years ago, (photos above) and it was filled with valuable information. Angela is a Brilliant artist and a Fantastic teacher. She was the first person to introduce me to using watercolor pencils on fabric and I've used them ever since. Thanks Angela.
If you're interested in taking this class check the link below over the next couple of weeks for details. You'll be glad you did!

Just finished this ATC and listed it on eBaY. I am involved in another ATC swap with an online group and I figured why not make an extra while I was at it-LOL!!!

This is an ATC I created using a variety of mixed media. There are collage papers, glass baubles, embossing powders, and the little face (fabric transfer)is a reproduction of an original "flat" fairy I made.

If you're interested click "AUCTION" and you'll be directed to eBaY.
