I made a video, or two!

I used that site "" and made two slideshow type videos of dolls I've done. The one video is for my friend Valletta (the one I was making 5 dolls for). I'm going to try to put the links in here in case anyone wants to check them out. I was just so excited about it. :)


All comments or suggestions are welcome and appreciated. Thanks.

feeling very unmotivated lately. Been buys making 5 dolls for a friend of mine. They are going slowly because I keep putting things off. Played my first home game last Saturday. It was the "Fright Night" bout, Halloween themed. We won! But, I was so nervous, and I think I could have played better. But, no matter, I'll do better next time. It was a blast though. If anyone lives near Michigan you should come see us play (roller derby). My team is the Mid Michigan Derby Girls, and I'm #79, Steele Maiden. There are some really great players on my team. Just sayin'. :) But today, I think I'm gonna try to finish up at least one of those dolls for Valletta.

Art Swap!!!!!

Awhile back, I posted a couple of pictures of the doll I made for the ADO Grimms fairy tales challenge. He was the boy from the story "The Juniper Tree". After I posted it, Roxanne from MentalMulch made a few comments on him and said that she liked him. One night, I was just sitting there feeling grateful that someone was complimenting my work, and thought to myself "I wonder if she would like him". So, I wrote her and asked, and she said she would. She said she would like to give an art piece of hers as well. I chose a painting, as she does lovely paintings. And that's how it happened. We swapped art. It was really quite exciting. I liked it so much, that I decided that I would like to do that every so often. I was thinking about doing it every 2 months. Anyone interested, just message me, and I'll enter you into the swap. If I get more than one person, I'll simply draw names. I'm thinking this will be fun, and also a great way to interact with other artists. The art needs to be your own. It can be in any form.
Here is a picture of the painting that now adorns my wall! Roxanne is such a talented artist. Her dolls are also amazing. Here's a link to her blog:
Go check her out. She has a link to her Etsy store as well.
