What I did on my summer vacation.

I am a more than a little bit behind in keeping up with this blog. I have not posted about the wonderful time I had at The Quinlan Show in Philadelphia in May. Or how happy I was that my gallery piece was chosen for the Beverly Port award. I have not posted any work-in-progress photos  or finished photos of the pieces I took with me to that show. I will, soon I promise, but I am too excited to share how I spent my summer.

I made dolls!  I made four in fact.A series of online classes inspired me to pick up polymer clay again. I enjoyed it very much but I think that paperclay is still my favorite. The first was a simple pin jointed doll.  The second was a tiny polymer clay BJD called Whim because I made him on a Whim. He is special because he is the first ball jointed doll I took to completion including painting, hair, and clothing. The third was an elf created in a class taught by Karen Baker. (He still needs clothing and hair.) The fourth one is the one I am particularly excited about because I am entering her in a contest,also because she and her little bear friend will be going to Philly next year and so I have already have my first piece for that show! This is Moira and the Professor! I hope you like them as much as I do.
