52 Projects #14 Worry Doll

Worry? Who me? Cloud over my head… I started this small fellow who is a bit bigger than the the size of my hand a couple of weeks ago. He languished in a basket with some other dolls until last evening. I new he needed the bells for comic relief as his mouth is tense […]


52 Projects #13

Journals, journals, journals. That’s what I have been up to. Making some for class fun with kids which are covers at this point and making collage in my own journal to get back in the swing.  It’s all about the journal…


52 Projects #12

Frustration. You know. The day nothing goes right, feels good, or satisfies you. That was me last Saturday.  To solve the problem, the challenge, I made a “frustration” buddy to remind no me to look up, look out at new possibilities.  I think he suits me just fine. He’s leaning against my journal stack right […]

52 Projects #8

Another snowstorm is keeping us busy. More than a foot of snow is predicted. What better way to spend inside than to make a new journal out of an old hardcover book. The book I chose is a decorating book and is 9″ x 11″ approximately. I tore out about half of the inside pages […]

<a href=””>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a> (bloglovin can’t seem to find my blog, guess I have to do this again, ugh.   I’m a week ahead. Because I feel better and because this “me doll” is my portrait for a rogue’s gallery at our next show.  I had to go rogue with my portrait too, […]
