Somedays, your workdesk is your world. Right? I am really, once again, enjoying the weekly WHAT'S ON YOUR WORKDESK WEDNESDAY posts. To join in, just visit here. It is so fun to go down the list and see what's on everyone's workdesk, worktable, kitchen table, potting bench...you will see a lot of fun variety from our lovely hostess at Stamping Ground. The WOYWW third anniversary is coming up, and there is a fun ATC exchange going on in conjunction, so check it out.
Last Wednesday, I had just started a new paperdoll project. So excited about reliving my childhood with these dolls! Well, I did make it to Hobby Lobby, and got my wooden circles to support the heads, craft sticks, extra strength glue stick, and glue dots. Oh my goodness--I'm in love with glue dots!!!
The top picture is what my worktable was looking like last night--and above is a handy dandy workbasket. When I have a craft-in-progress (CIP) I like to keep the goodies I've pulled out of my stash all in one workbasket so that I don't get too spread out. This project is so much fun because it is mixed media, and you can use up some of your scrapbooking papers you even forgot you had (like me) plus lovely ribbon, buttons, bows, broken jewelry and whatnots.
Before I put this all away, I hope to have made at least six paperdolls--I love these girls, I think they are really cute. When they are all finished, I will have all the photos and details.
My first doll, with the orange flowered dress, was a learning experience--and I already like my second doll (with my grandma's head) much better. I think my grandma would have loved it. Julia had commented last week that she received some paperdolls, and some of them were mermaids! I can just imagine the fun of creating a mermaid pattern for this and all of the fun embellishments you could do! I am just now beginning my third paperdoll maiden.
This past week, and this month for that matter, has been filled with ceremonies and banquets leading up to my daughter's high school graduation. It has been a fun whirlwind, but I think things should settle down now for a while!
She is a precious girl who received wonderful awards, and we are so very proud of her accomplishments, and feel blessed to have her in our lives. She is a real doll!
Now, we will all move ahead to the next chapter, and look forward to more special times!
|How to water your cat|
When I am looking for calm in the center of everything, I like to sit on my greenhouse, or my deck, watch the cats, drink my morning coffee and do a little dreaming.
Eat something good for you...Write the future...Dream of the past...Stitch something now.
