More Expo Pics

I forgot a couple of pics from the Doll & Teddy Bear Expo. Here is Alba Garcia who makes lovely BJDs (ball jointed dolls). They are different because they represent us fuller figured females. Plus, she's lovely person. Check out her site http://www.fantasiation.com/.

My photo of R. John Wright's booth didn't come out well but this nice pic of his Alice did. He signed and dated a hang tag for me to put on a Christopher Robin and Pooh doll I have of his. It took me forever to save up to buy that doll. I've finally met the creator and he was very nice too. I love Alice and they now sell their work direct. With a layaway. Bad news for me, very bad news.

These are leftovers from the expo and they are now finding homes in several local shops. My witches flew off my table. I thought that was kind of funny.

Here's one of my Goth Girls that I decided to keep. She has a friend and of course her pic didn't turn out well either. She was being difficult but that's okay. I'm coming up with a story for them, so you'll get to see the other one. Just love her dress. My mom had given me this fabric because she thought it strange and didn't know what to do with it.

This is one of my favorite witches. I just had a little bit left of the star print fabric and knew it had to dress a witch. My mom did the bead work.

Here's a spider witch. Yes, she's got little spiders crawling over her dress. Don't get too close.

I know, my pics don't always work. I'm a doller, not a photographer. I just love my Voodoo Bunner and it was difficult letting her go.

Witch Bunner. Both of these cuties bodices are needle felted in black.

Masquerade Bunner I.

Masquerade Bunner II.

Obi detail.

I want to welcome Laura Frasier of Farm Girl Arts at http://www.farmgirlrenewables.blogspot.com/, Sharon at http://www.riamelin.blogspot.com/, and Berri. I didn't see a site for Berri but thanks for joining me on my creative journey.

Catching Up

Really working on keeping up with the sketching. I got a head cold on the way to South Haven and then when I got home it turned into a sinus...
