Finally, finally, finally, I can say the dolls for the film are done. They are now on the set and the director, Nathan Ross Freeman, loves them. Woo hoo! What a wonderful experience and two year ride. Any other dolls I make for the set will be icing on the cake. I can't believe I did it. I'm so proud of myself and I've learned so much about me, my doll making process, designing new dolls. I can mark this project off my list.
I feel fantastic! I'm giddy with joy and I'm ready for the next big project and 50 thousand little ones. I have amazed myself. Of all the times I could have given up and I didn't because I made a promise to Nathan but also to myself. What was I made of? Well, let me tell you, I'm made of pretty good stuff. I can do anything now.

This is a pincushion the main character uses. An experiment gone awry. It's pretty gruesome but the character has some issues. Don't you love that word? Issues. I can now move on to other projects. I have a brand new slate to scribble on. First, I'll have to clean up my studio. It think I'll take a nap first.

This will be short. I'm working on a huge t-shirt quilt on the longarm. 88 inches by 114 inches. I did the part-time gig and I can't...
