Working Late or...Early!

I was up most of the night working on my dollhouse.  The sun is up and the paper mache' part is done except for the tower.

Working on a Dollhouse

I am taking an on-line class from Laetitia Mieral in France.  The class focuses on making a paper mache dollhouse.  She designed a fabulous castle for the class but I knew I would not be able to keep it displayed if I made such a large piece so I opted for something smaller but following her techniques. Here are some work in progress pics:

Its been a long time...


After a lengthy absence from this blog, I did some soul searching and recognized that I really missed posting here and wanted to get back to it.  It was not by conscious intention that I stopped, I just allowed other pursuits to take precedence over my personal interests.  I had to wrest control back from those forces.  They are now banished from serious influence.  I am still here.

Victory.

It was an interesting journey, though not one I would encourage others to take. One good thing that happened along the way though was a reawakening of my creative soul and a reaffirmation that the things I enjoy have serious meaning in my life and should not be dismissed.  I realized that by doing so I had accidentally dismissed parts of myself.    So I have re-oriented my priorities and placed creating much higher on the list (and posting)!

Welcome home.

Fairy Garden

I haven't done a lot of gardening but I did start putting together my Fairy Garden.  I have a weakness for miniatures and all things doll sized anyway so this seemed like a natural extension!

Doll Retreat 2013

This Year's Retreat Teacher was Leslie Molen.  We did her Santos Cage doll.  Here is a picture of mine...I still need to work on her hair.

Finally unpacked

As always happens when you move into a new house...you get really behind on everything else!

I haven't posted in a while so here are some pictures of the house through the Fall and Christmas seasons.

 
Mission Impossible style elves on the chandelier chain!
 



 
Below is the set up for the Halloween decorating.


 
I somehow forgot to take a picture of the Christmas dolls!  But here they are for Halloween.

Touring with Colleen Babcock

While in London I got a chance to finally meet up with Colleen! She took me on a great trip to Great Missenden. We shopped at Rainbow Silks and other stores, ate lunch, talked and talked....and had a grand time. I was so happy to meet Colleen in person as we have only known each other through email.  I probably would not have ventured out of London on the train without some help so it was an added bonus to get to visit Great Missenden. Below are pics of Colleen...we were very taken with the little doors of the old buildings.
