In Progress...

















I'm trying to get back in the swing of things and I decided to do this I should first finish up a swap piece that I started a while back. On my Pfatt Marketplace chat group we are having a "small doll swap". I get to send my small doll to Danita and she likes pink and she likes her dollies to wear hats!! So this is what I came up with. I think she turned out sweet. I used vintage crepe paper for her skirt...this is one of the crepe pieces I bought from Wendy Addison at the flea market last month. It's such a great pink. I stretched the crepe along the hemline and it gives it a little body...kinda sassy!! She's got an old earring at her waist and she holds some vintage millinery flowers. I love the crown that sits next to her. My friend Donna surprised me with that one day...Donna is the Queen of Crowns you know...


Aaaannnddd...I REALLY need to start paying attention to my little Halloween friends here. I am participating in a new and exciting show this year..."A Bewitching Halloween Fete" and I am well under way to having some work be done in time...but check back later to see how much I actually get finished!!


Last week was a very long and hard week, with funeral services for our dear sweet Brianna. Please go to Iva's blog to read the eulogy she wrote and read (amazing)at the service. The Angels for Brianna Fundraising Auction will begin soon. Any blog or website where you see the banner means that that artist will be donating an item for the auction. We have some pretty darn amazing people in the art world.
