Inspired by Zebra Designs & Destinations, this is my final post for the month of July…..
My Granddaughter Sage recently spent a couple of days with us, and while she was here she asked to make a doll. Shamefully, I purchased the muslin doll at Michael’s, and Sage picked out the buttons she insisted needed to be the eyes, the jewel nose, and I found the heart in my stash for the “Heart!” I had bought hair at her request, and misplaced it, so I found the yarn for hair in my stash. Since I was unable to find clothes to buy, I sent her home with a doll without clothes for her mother to find!
Isn’t it wonderful being a Mixed Media artist, and saving all the things that speak to you, and then just when you need it most – looking through all the stuff – you find the perfect yarn for hair, or a perfect red heart to place on the chest of a special doll? Pulling out my trusty glue gun, a needle, and embroidery thread…..it all came together!
