Still fumbling

Still stumbling around in this blog!  Don’t know what I’d do without my geeky grand daughter!

...even paper dolls!

I work part time at a stamp and paper crafting supply business.  Every once in a while, the manager and I put our creative heads together and come up with some awesome stamp designs.  The paper doll stamps – with wardrobe, of course – have been a huge success and we’re working on another set.   This has to be the most fun I’ve had since I designed clothes – mostly glamorous evening gowns – for my movie star paper dolls like Lana Turner, Rita Hayworth and Betty Grable.  Of course, I’ve just revealed my age by listing these ’40′s glamour queens but they brought out the designer in me.  Here’s a link to the business – check it out.  www.marksfinestpapers.com

Here's a photos of what they look like made up!

All Dolls are Art

My Gypsy Challenge dolls have been put aside – I will attempt to replace HER legs after the holidays.  I was given an additional honor by the Challenge facilitator when she invited me to submit a doll to the All Dolls Are Art show which runs concurrently with the Gypsy Challenge.  The cost of mailing TWO dolls to Houston and back made me shudder – but I’m going to try my best to do it.  Maybe I could send both dolls in the same container?  Must wait and see what October brings.
