Let Go of Something Good
to Make Room for Something Better

This week I cleaned my office and sent a ton of stuff to the recylcing center.  I let go of something good (artsy magazines) to make room for something better (space to work in).   I want to continue to make that a priority in many ways - letting go of good things to make room for something better.   As my family's needs change, I will need to.

In looking for some pictures on my old hard drive to try and meet a deadline, I found all kinds of videos I had made when I was leading the online version of the Izannah Walker Workshop.  I found a video I'd made of my painting area back when it was clean and functional.  That was a good inspiration!   And I decided to let go of the outside deadline which was voluntary to focus on my next big project instead.  

But I also found other videos.  Someone asked if you can make the Izannah Walker Workshop pattern without adding paperclay on top.  YES, you can make it without clay additions, and have a nice cloth doll with an Izannah-like body.   Here's a video which shows a doll made before the paperclay is added.


If you're interested in making a cloth only doll, the pattern link is in the sidebar and is called "Izannah Walker Doll PDF Pattern".


  1. So much going on for me that doll making is a distant dream...but this was fun. I agree that getting rid of something good CAN make room for something better, something that would not have been able to fit before. Awesome video.

    1. Thanks, Jan. :-) I believe you will be able to get back to doll making in a future season. At least I HOPE so.
