Kayaking at Dawn

I was on vacation and had the chance to go kayaking at dawn.  Here are a few pictures I took: 



The light at dawn is beautiful.

Autumn Art Doll Quarterly Feature

My work was featured in the Autumn issue of Art Doll Quarterly.  This issue looks interesting!  And my name is on the cover, which is kind of fun! 


I'm Taking A Class

Life is busy, but learning something new always brings joy.  I've been taking an iPhone Only Photography Class with David Molnar.  It's fabulous.

I wanted to improve my skills taking pictures of my work. I use my iPhone camera more than I do my other cameras. So I figured I might hone my skills. I've been taking a lot of photos and learning a lot. Here are a few examples:

Not only am I learning about photography, but I am picking up tips for my next class I lead online.  

I hope you're learning 
something new, too!

Shipping Tip

A while ago, I purchased some tubular cotton bandage material to use as stockinette for the surface of an antique inspired doll.  I used it on this doll below - it was a little too loosely woven.  But it works perfectly as a shipping material.  

Recently I sent some dolls to be featured in Art Dolls Quarterly's fall issue. Once of them is shown above, When I ship things now, I like to tuck the dolls into a stockinette tubular sleeve.  It keeps the plastic from the bubble wrap away from the painted areas.

My Favorite Cup

My youngest son and I went to one of those pottery painting places when he was a preschooler.  We had such a fun time.  I painted this mug then.  Well, it bit the dust.  But it's still a fun memory, and drinking coffee in it made me smile.
