WIP ~ Tuesday

Let me just tell you that it feels good to have some of my creative mojo back!
I’ve actually have a few things in the works at the moment. Ok I take that back, I have A LOT of things in various stages that I’m working on. But I have 2 things that I am currently working on and hope to finish in the next few days.
I have a few more digital pieces that are in various stages of completion. I’m starting to wonder if I have an OCD or something because I just can’t seem to focus on one thing at a time, I have to have my hands in all kinds of projects all at once! Haha that’s probably why all the projects around the house are in various stages of completion (hubby’s going to help me finish them off one by one though). Anyway, I digress.
You remember my Water Altar that I created last year? Well I finally got around to getting a piece of wood for the other 3! They are still in the painting process, but I look forward to adding all the details and hanging them up when they are finished right next to the other. It’ll be nice to have a finished set.
I’ve been seeing a lot of art dolls lately and have always wanted to create my own but never found a pattern that I liked and that I didn’t have to pay for. It never dawned on me to create my own until I was working on one of my digital pieces. We’ll call it my DUH moment! So I’ve spent an afternoon drawing up a design. This is actually the second run at my pattern. The first run at it I’ve decided the parts were too small and so I drew them a bit bigger. So far it’s working out pretty well. It might need some more tweaking though, we’ll see.
So I am off for more painting and hand sewing. Hopefully my doll will be ready for a face and details tomorrow.  Hope everyone has a productive day!


  1. I always have a zillion projects on the go. I think it keeps things interesting :) Good luck with your dolly. You'll be hooked in no time!

  2. I don't think you can have a creative spirit without having a zillion projects in progress. Thanks! So far she's turning out pretty good. I did stuff her legs too full though so I'll have to hand stitch where her knees are going to be.
