Newspaper article


Here is the link to see the article that Jennifer Nesbitt from This Week Westerville wrote about me & my beaded dolls. She came to interview me about my being a finalist in the Land of Odds Earthern Mother beaded doll challenge. It was so much fun & now I actually have a bit of local publicity. I really liked the article and think she did one bang up job. Now to get people to vote on the website.

Here is a picture of me holding my Global Warming doll which started my thoughts about Rachel Carson and Silent Spring. I also have "Getting Motivated" in my arms which was my piece for AFIC. And yes, that is my work area with all my beaded dolls hanging on the wall behind me. They give me inspiration!

Well, I could just gush over how talented I think you are, remembering when I first stumbled on your blog when I entered the internet world, and how happy I am to be your blogging friend. But I won't.

Let me just say how happy I am for you to have EVERY recognition for your work that you receive. There is more to come.

Happy Holidays,
Carol

Congratulations Dot on your article and your place in the semi-finals. I am blessed that you led me to the company of doll artists on BAD, thank you. Your article really hit home with being accepted by different groups (beaders and doll artist) and it is all to true, but we can convert them one at a time!!
