Working toward Expo

Well I am working away at getting ready for the Expo, Spring into Summer, at the Intuitive Development Center next Saturday.

I have a line of dolls ~ Intuitively Inspired and they represent the four ways of getting your messages. Knowing, Seeing, Feeling & Hearing! I am very excited.

I have a batch of fabric sitting in a solution of some very strong tea; my first attempt at dying fabric in this manner. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Picture of the name tag challenge piece

Doll Club Challenge ~ Name Tags

For the month of April, our doll club challenge was to make a name badge. I love the one I made! I actully made the fabric in my class last year with Patti Culea. I used an embilishing machine, silk, wook roving, angelina and free form stitching. I also used beading techniques I learned from Susan and using a book for instructions. I am going to make it more of a necklace than a pin however, since I don't like the way it hangs when it's pinned to my shirt!

Can't wait for doll club!

I'm Baaaaccckkk

Ok, I have decided that I am going to be very good about updating my blog site and make it a part of my daily musings. I am in the middle of getting ready for an expo on the 1st of May; at Intuitive Development, and I need to get my dolls finished. I am also working on the doll that came about as a result of my cabachon face that I made. Susan, aka the Night Beader, taught a class to a bunch of us from the doll club.

It was amazing and I will post a couple of pictures later. I keep struggling with staying motivated - maybe it's that I have so many ideas running in my head that it gets to be too overwhelming. Well I have asked the angels to help out and now I am on a roll!
