Happy Thanksgiving!

I can't believe it is almost December!! The Fall months are just crazy in regards to my kids school. Soooo much homework, 3 Holidays, Science Project, studying for tests, dealing with Etsy, Flickr, and the rest kind of takes the back seat. Hence, my absence from the blog. I haven't learn to balance the new things(my job) in my life yet. Somehow I do make time to create. I mean pockets of time! It'd funny because I actually take pieces I've been working on and hang them up in my work area.
The guys are oblivious to their presence. See, I'm adapting!! Anyway, things are good and I'm where I'm suppose to be in life, so I try to embrace it and move forward.
Just wanted to remind folks that I will be at the Eiteljorg Museum in Indianapolis, Dec. 3 from 10am-5pm. It is called Winter Market and I think this is my 3rd year of attending. I really love being in the museum setting! This year I will take pictures and post them here.



This is Tulip and she is one of several I having been creating with a board as a background. There is just something about it that is not quite right. It doesn't sit very well with me and I don't know why.
Oh well! I just will keep marching forward and try to work it out some how!
I hope you all have a very wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!!!

I think she is charming. Even if that is not the adjective you are looking for...

Hi Carla,
looking forward to see the images from the Museum Fair. l know what you mean about this doll. When l first saw her l thought.."That's not your usual style Carla". I think what l mean is she is lacky "life". hope that doesn't upset youxx I have always been amazed at how you seem to give life and personality to your dolls..including the one l have.xxxx Good luck with show and working out why you feel unsure about this doll.xxlynda

Good to see you are doing well and keeping yourself busy.

I agree with you about Tulip...she's lovely...but does need something to "finish". Maybe a little color in the lower left corner? I'm sure something will come to you as you live with her....usually happens with a piece I'm working on & don't feel is finished as well...

Tulip is lovely. If you want to change her, try grounding her. Add a bit of green or brown to her feet. She's just hanging out there on a rope. See how that feels. Take it or leave it. Happy Thanksgiving to you also!
