"I'm Late"

I'm loving working with this paper doll method, I think I'm just thrilled to be able to some type of doll (oh woe are my sewing abilities!) I have one more Alice themed one after this then I'm off to a bride of Frankenstein one!

I hope everyone who celebrates had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Ours was small but nice, honestly its not my favorite holiday. Part of me is just sad Halloween is over and I don't like spending all day in the kitchen either. Lucky for me family brings dishes as well! Well the Winter Holidays are around the corner and they feel much more festive!

*passes cider* Cheers!

Down the Rabbit Hole

New mixed media piece, "Down the Rabbit Hole"

I've longed to make dolls for sometime now, but alas sewing isn't a strength of mine. So I've recently been experimenting with a watercolor paper doll technique and having so much fun with it. This one I stitched with needle and thread. More in the series are on the way!

Dead Can Dance!

My lovely friend had a Halloween wedding last week, I thought I'd share the painting I did for them. They had amazing costumes (pretty close to the painting, only the bride had a delicate black tiara and red veil.

Wishing an eternity of happiness to Erica and Bill!
