Says WHOOOOooo???

I haven't set aside Halloween except for a few weeks during Bunny season for over a year now and I'm loving it. I know I'm doing what I was meant to do. I've taken time and thought over the past couple of years to look at my dolls more and more in the Art Doll category and networking with some extraordinary artists in the field.Still it wasn't until a friend from Somerset encouraged me more to continue that direction... and I have. I've had such a wonderful time putting animals in time period dress, and have continued this journey to a another level. Bringing some of my Note card images to life as a doll. Some for show only and some for licensing at this point... but you will see some at my online venues ahead.

Until then, enjoy my owl~ it was the eye concept that I just had to try, I loved it and another, Snowy owl is in flight as we speak. The Seraph is another interest for me these 12 years of Folk art...the path is always moving ahead and mine seems to be bordered with Pumpkins and witches and all things spooky. Onward I go.....

There are changes ahead for this Goode Witch, not so much in my art, but in my life. Life changes can be subtle or big...this will be big, but not bad. In it all, I've come across pictures of a few friends I have forgotten about. This one I just love~ Elsbeth. As I was cataloging drawings and patterns (I have several hundred over the years) I came upon her and others. I KNOW I need to be packing, but oh, how I want to bring them all to life! So torn am I! It will all fall in to place, I realize, but not without a few heart tugs along the way.

I just LOVE a Goode Witch

Especially in a lovely shade of green! I've been having fun here embracing my love of Halloween and playing around with some different orange fabrics for an Art Doll I'd like to do. It's a slow go with care taking, but it does move forward. Even with a slow economy we love our dollies and so I have been graced by many to adopt my pretties~ even of the Toady variety!

Things That Go Bump In The Night

My, but it's been awhile. I've been busy and Halloween hasn't stopped, except for the past month. There were bunnies to be made and patterns to be drawn...oh, and let's not forget that it is tax season (now, that is just THE most wicked thing to a business owner... especially one that is more passion minded than about where ever cent goes.) In it all though, my mind has not strayed from pumpkin witches , black cats or skeletons....but maybe, just maybe I can settle into my work area adorned with skeletons and get started on a wonderful year ahead.This Goode Witch has much ahead of her with new sketches and ideas. Eleanor Higgins is the first on my pattern agenda and a even more extreme prim big doll. She's being rag stuft at the moment. Witch ornies are sewn and ready to stuff, they were a huge hit at the Heritage show and a must for my Fall Shows ahead... it I start now....

I'm a lover of dark early mornings,a good hour or two before the sun comes up. A movie to listen to and friends to be stuft, make for the beginnings of a perfect day~ as the sun rises, my friends come to life. Now, most of you know, I have wee little Molly beside me. She really loves to sleep all cozy and beside me, even putting her head on my pillow. She doesn't however enjoy my fondness for the dark hour before sunrise. Sometimes lately she will make her way out, but not without being in my way as I navigate without waking the house with light. She's just doing her job I suppose and she does it well. She does know how to give me a good heart thumper sometimes!
