This is my first post and I feel pretty happy I've gotten this far and my dolls are having a party. I have spent a fair amount of time playing with options, making and re-making a banner. I've recently taken a four week photoshop class so I can make my pictures look much better than they had been looking. So, hopefully when you come here to see what is going on it will look great!
Ever since I was a little kid I have been bent over a sewing machine, crochet hook and yarn or some embroidery. Over the years I've added dyeing, spinning, weaving, beading and doll making to my repretiore. I've laid down a few of those tools but still have fun playing with a wide range of materials and techniques.
I have a great studio space that I work in which is just five minutes from my house. It is located in an old school that has been turned into a community center. It is in need of some renovation, but tons of stuff goes on there and I really love it. I share my space with another woman named Susan who makes handbags and accessories and some great sock monsters. Visit her blog here http://www.dandelionfactory.blogspot.com/
Our studio is airy and spacious and has some great windows. We also set up a cozy little corner where we do handwork as well as eat lunch and have people in to chat.
A good friend of mine gave me tons of embroidery floss, so I dont think I'll ever run out...but sometimes just the right color is missing.
I also make these funny dolls and while they have been professionally photographed I think they are having much more fun in these candids.
