Dolls!

Finally managed to combine some time at home AND some sunshine to take pictures! Above is the absolutely gorgeous wee doll that Dot made for me in the 3-D doll swap. Just look at the wonderful details and all the beads! I am in total awe and keep picking her up and admiring her. She is so perfect. Thank you SOOO much Dot!!
Above and below are pictures of what I've done with Kyra (from the Art Doll Coolaberation). She's quite a feisty little miss and has informed me that she wants to be a volcano goddess; cousin of Pele, the Hawaiian goddess (She-Who-Shapes-The-Sacred-Land). No matter that I had a rather sedate serene personsa in mind - she was not having any of it. So, after much discussion, I decided to go with the 'flow' (lava).
She is carrying a knitted talisman bag which holds a piece of molten 'lava'. Now I just have to finish up her journal and she's ready to start off on her next adventure. (Hope you like her Barb!)

love how you worked with Kyra -- its interesting for me who's never explored the world of doll making to watch the steps in "decorating" a form...

The beaded angel doll is so sweet. Love it. And the doll for Barb is just great! I love the colors and what you did with her hair! Great job!

Love the color of Kyra's face, it almost looks like terra cotta.

Your swap doll is beautiful.

You dol gals sure do a great job. The face on the beaded one is just beautiful. You don't usually see them smiling.

Kyra is quite the gal. Loved the hairdo, beads and all.
