Sometimes I’m just blown away by the creativity I find when reading others’ blogs.  Like this idea for displaying dolls.

I found this on Jointed Love. It grew out of her need to find space for her dolls as they were taking up too much room on her desk.  Read the blog post to find out more and she has a lovely blog with gorgeous images of her dolls.

My first boy faceup.

I just got finished another commission.  This one was a Angel of Dream Jimi.  It was my first boy which was challenging.  I also prefer to work on the smaller dolls but I’m happy with how this one turned out.  I hope his owner likes him.


I’m glad I have this week off so I can get started on the Pipos Baha that just arrived yesterday.
