Also I wanted to post this pic of the last cloth doll I made from a pattern by Back Porch Pickins I think. I do really make cloth dolls sometimes although this is the one of the few I have made that is mostly painted.

Creativity At Last!!

Yes I have done it. I finally made something new. This is amazing considering my husband had a heart attack on Sat. He is doing well and home now. I had to make a Birthday Card for someone at work and so I really did something creative. I am posting a pic of front and inside and then a free vintage image that I used. I have a lot of really old neat pics that came into my possession when someone found them in a house they bought and were going to throw them away. Anyway the card was simple to make and I am happy with it.

Okay maybe I was over optimistic about actually making something today. I hoped that the blog would inspire me to create everyday which is important to keep your creativity flowing easily. I am what they call in this part of Tennesse "down in my back" and have been having lower back trouble for a week so I have spent most of it flat in my bed on my back. Now that I am back at work I have to take it easy at home. Good excuse any way. So I am putting here another fav paperdoll that i made for a swap last year on the now defunct paper art list called fabrications. She is the Queen of the Harvest Moon Ball. anyway I like her but was also very happy with the one I got in return. And then there is a Vintage Christmas card image for anyone who likes that sort of thing. I love Vintage greeting cards, especially from the 30's thru the 50's so will share images periodically. Well it is back to bed and resting my back. Soon I will be making something new I'm sure!!

First Post

Well this is my first post and I have no idea what I am doing. It is Glorious Autumn here and the leaves are beautiful. I haven't made anything in a week because I have been flat on my back in bed. I am posting one of my favorite paperdolls I have made. Her face is from a copy of a rubber stamped image but otherwise she is all from my own mind. Look for something fallish coming soon.
