What Is Your Favorite Season?

Mine is fall. I love the changing colors of the beautiful leaves, bonfires, crisp air and Halloween!  I am sad to see the flowers fade away and when a big gust of wind comes along - the trees are left standing naked.  I did snip one of the dinner plate dahlias before frost sets in and the tubes have to be dug up.  I will have this picture as a reminder of what a beautiful summer has gone by and will return again.

This is a very vibrant yellow!

I'm Still Here...REALLY!!

What happened to the past 6 months (a YEAR AND A HALF has gone by) and it seems I have sorely neglected my online posting. So, if anyone is still out there and following I thank you very much and I am back!

Although doll making is one of the reasons I started this blog (I am sad to say, I have not made a doll in MONTHS) I also make appearances as the Fairy Godmother at parties and make princess hats that I sell at craft shows here in Michigan.  It has been a busy season. We finished the traveling doll project and if you click here, you can read about the dolls that were created, meet the artists that worked on the project and view the beautiful dolls. Here are a few examples from one of the teams I was on, Team Puppe:
This is RAYNE - She is a total rock star!
This is Rosie Pimlico and she is a free spirit1
Nadia is a Prima Ballerina (and a bit Diva)
 There a SO many beautiful dolls and the artists are all wonderful, take a break and go check out the Art Dolls Only traveling Doll Project!
