deirdre, the stargazer...

happy hump day everyone - and a big ole happy birthday to me ma! she's probably out in the garden working so i will have to call her this evening...

so, today i want to introduce you to deirdre, the stargazer:



deirdre has travelled with the sideshow circuit her entire life. she sees more than she lets on...
and some of it has turned her hair white. but deirdre doesn't mind. she understands that she has been given a gift, and with all great gifts, come great responsibility.
deirdre loves her life in the circus and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world....

i think this may actually be my favorite piece that i've ever made! isn't that funny?  each piece i make is always special to me - almost like my children going forth out into the world, but once in a while there is that piece that i do not want to part with...deirdre may be one of those pieces.
i am giving some thought to submitting her for publication to one of the art doll magazines that i read. but, wow! that's a scary thought. to put my work out there for review. frightening. but, i suppose, necessary on some level...

so, that's today's update.
i have been working on a tattooed lady as part of the window series and she actually got lips last night. this is something that has been eluding me: trying to figure out how to make "real" lips that i like. it's a lot harder than it looks, i'll tell ya. at least for me. trying to figure it all out. but, i think i got it. we'll see...

so, happy wednesday { i know with all the horror going on in the world that it is hard to feel completely happy}, but i wanted to wish you one anyway....

She's wonderful! I can definitely see how you'd not want to part with her. ^-^

And happy Bday to your mom! ^-^

And I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how many people will LOVE & ADORE your dolls! Don't let fear keep you from sharing your amazing gifts & talents with the world. Especially in times of disaster, sadness & pain, people need something beautiful & wondrous to uplift them. And your wonderful dolls, paintings & Pixie Sticks do just that. Believe in yourself & know that we believe in you too! =D

XOXO
