Me at 2

Well, not really, but Chris surprised me this afternoon when I got up with a little graphic he found in some of the magazines he bought yesterday at a ephemeral sale. They were magazines called Children's Activities & were from the late 50s. Lots of cute & fun graphics and ideas for all kinds of things. I loved the children's recipe section with little graphics of food or kitchen utensils. Also there were lots of cut out for paper dolls. I'm seeing some new mixed media projects coming out of all these magazines. But not for now. I HAVE been practicing RAW (right angle weave) from Marcia DeCoster's new book, and here I am...trying out new designs thinking of teaching at Byzantium. So I guess, yes! I am always designing as I'm learning. I really need to get ready for Tahoe.

I have to work tonight being the only Blood Banker there, off tomorrow where I really have to go to the Guilded Lily meeting, but will be dead tired as I'll not get any sleep before I attend. Go Bachelor food shopping Sunday & try to pack & get things together. Work Sunday night short staffed again! Then be in a frenzy Monday getting Rachel's Dream out the door to Nashville, shop, and TRY to relax before I get on that big plane to Reno. Whew...I'm tired just thinking about all this to do.

I got my dolls back from the IOLCC Dimensions in Dollmaking show out in San Diego. Didn't win anything, but then I didn't expect to. Just wanted people out in the West see some of my crazy beaded dolls. I was looking at the list of other doll makers, and WOW...just to be there among their stuff is amazing.

awww...what a sweet image! I love those old illustrations because they seem so innocent. Sounds like you have a busy time ahead...try to take some time for breathing!

You are a busy lady! I've always found the busier I am, the more in control and organized I am. Inactivity seems to breed laziness and sloppiness, don't you think? So you must be incredibly organized!
