Choosing these 8 sites has been difficult. There are so many sites I visit. The truth is, I am an internet lurker. I love to look and learn, but tend not to leave comments, even though I have met and know a couple of these ladies quite well. I encourage you to visit their sites and be inspired by their art, as I have been. There are so many people doing wonderful things..........................take time to look and learn as much as you can!

A computer whiz I am not

Well I have been trying to add a new pic to the top of my page, but html savvy I am not, so it will have to wait. I need to spend a lot more time on my blogging, which is at the moment almost impossible, so I will only do what I can...
I am very pleased about the doll I made especially for Australian Dolls, Bears and Collectibles magazine. Her name is Colleen and she is featured on the front cover... I have been published!

Back and starting over.

Well they say a change is as good as a holiday, so I am making changes - not entirely by my own choice!
Oh, it has been so long since I have posted. Sorry to those of you who have dropped in and seen nothing happening here. The truth is ....... nothing is happening! Since coming home from my whirlwind tour - 1 month........ many hotel rooms -
I have not had the clearness of mind to do anything apart from basic housewife and home office duties. I have been dreaming of making dolls. The problem has been my DH has decided he needed my working space for our office and I had to pack up all my stuff and relocate to a VERY SMALL ROOM! I have accumulated so much stuff I am at a loss as to what to do. There are 6 tubs of fabrics in the shed that I have to find room for! Consequently, I have been very distracted and unsettled since coming home. I did do a Barbara Willis class in June. I will post those pics as soon as I can. I hope to blog a bit more frequently. I have a lot of catching up to do. Here are some photos of the wonderful places we visited. I am so glad I took a lot of photos, for the memories...........
