To make myself finally create a doll I decided to join the Patriotic primitive doll challenge. It is always disappointing that I don't win when the judges and voting is by other doll makers. I still enjoy my dolls and over the years have sold most of the ones I have made so I guess someone must like them. So here she is. I haven't made many primitive types and usually I don't enjoy painting cloth dolls but this one was really fun. I am off to the beach with the entire extended family where I hope to make mermaid paperdolls and envelope books with my young nieces. More about that to come.

Never let me say again that I have a black thumb. I have kept this pink geranium alive and re- potted it since I got it from my granddaughter for Mother's day. I have been too busy to realize that it really was summer but now most of my commitments are over. I can clean and create, I hope. I am going to the beach in a couple of weeks but that is fun, not work! Here is a card I made for a digiday challenge. It says it all for summer. I should be able to post more regularly now. Happy Summer DAy!

Yes I am still here. In the interest of staying inspired I joined a Christmas challenge that lasts until November. The first challenge was an ornament that was due today. Here is my Victorian Paper ornament. I meant to sew one but time is so fleeting. I wonder what happened to the lazy days of summer. I have been so busy this June. Oh well, I will be back soon with more.
