Can you say "Rejuvinated"? !!!!



I'm back & had the most fabulously relaxing vacation ever! No computer for a week was definately challenging but well worth it! I recommend it to all. Sometimes we just need to spend quality time with the ones we love without alot of distractions. It was most liberating!

Feeling so rejuvinated, I decided to dust off a couple of projects that were on the back burner. The first , a cage doll. She is a labor of love. I may actually keep her as she and I have become very close!

I'd love to hear from other artists about peices they chose to keep for themselves! This was a first for me!

The next was intended to be listed in time for Mother's Day. Well that didn't happen obviously, lol. She still needs a baby & arms to hold it!! She is done in artist pencils. Such a loving expression she has on her downcast face.

Beautiful cage doll! If I were you, I would want to keep every doll you make! Obviously I can't keep a mural I have painted, but when I shop for things for my "country store", there are things that I love, and hate to part with, but at least I get to keep them until they are sold.

i found you!! thanks for the link so i can watch whats new...

i'm not tempted to keep what i make, if i'm keeping it it's only for the reason that i've REALLY messed up...my walls are covered with the mess-ups, but i enjoy them. love the dolls and can't wait to see them finished...

Nan,
Oh Thank you for your comment on my blog. WOW that made me feel good.
I think you are a very pretty lady. Tiny little thing too. I wish! I can't wait to see the red head finished. She will be stunning I am sure. Your work is amazing.
Blessings and thanks again for making my day!
