Everyone who is a doll collector goes through many phases, and eventually find what “works” for them, what they enjoy the most, me, I like to play in making, or creating a figure, and seeing what expression I want to play with on that given day, what my inspiration nudges into happening.
Don’t give up! Stick with it, as many times as it takes. Sometimes you want to just throw in the towel and say, “I give up”, but that is the time for you to dig deep and push through. Your sincere effort will invite a good outcome.

Meet Blythe doll #1, I say #1 because I have another one on order. I took Blythe to the doll club meeting yesterday, but didn’t get a chance to introduce her. I suspect she will come with me again to the meeting in November. We meet once a month.
Things never turn out like we think they might. My experience through life has been to roll with the dice. I had started to explain about items I had brought in to share, however, there was so much to cover in a two hour period, that I simply didn’t have the time to talk about the fall, October, November, when we in North American celebrate Thanksgiving as a yearly holiday. October for us in Canada, and I believe it is in November for residents of the United States.
Sitting with Blythe 1 is a pin cushion my sister knitted for me while she watched TV with me and chatted. Something I have not mastered. I do one or the other, but not at the same time. =^_^= For those of you who will ask, that is an upside down Chinese skull cap, and that is the pigtail hiding off to the side/back.
The Blythe doll, is an artists “toy” she wears a wig, that we can change, her skin comes in different colours, and you can buy different coloured eyes for her. The artists who play with her actually do her makeup, redo hair, dress her (her body is smaller than her head) There are two screws at the back of her head, so that you can get at her eyes.. the lids come down and you paint on those too.
So why the second doll. Because … I want to take this one apart, and play. That is what creative inquisitive individuals do. =^_^=
There is a saying or song.. Life is but a dream…. in mine nothing is impossible. Some discoveries are more fun than others, but all are interesting and worthwhile.
Guess who is having fun in her studio! Silly goose me! October is jut around the corner, I have begun my fall inventory.
PL Precept #1 Life is art!!
Every day is a new beginning, every page will tell a different story. Door # 3 has a couple more pages to do, I ran out of the card page I wanted. It will be done this week.
You have heard me say often enough- Finish what you start… Especially on a creative art piece. Each piece has its own feeling, its own identity, when you leave something too long, it is no longer that same vibe when you pick it up again. You have changed. Yes, every day, we grow, we learn, we advance in our “story” No two days are alike.
PL calendar day 2 Live each day filled with hope
Even in those situations when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will always find a way.
Follow your heart while also thinking about the happiness of others
Always be true to yourself in your words and actions. Strive to make others happy with a sincere heart.
I came across the above photo this morning. I enjoyed revisiting it, so I am sharing it with you. Some expressions of mine.. I enjoy at the time, they are calming and relaxing when I am working with them… then… fickle as I am.. I move on. Each step leads to another. So maybe not fickle, maybe it is more, I let go and go forward. I just finished several small requests for greeting cards, I enjoy doing them, I sit myself down, focus on project cards. When that is done, I put the card making supplies away and return to my art journals.
Sage sentiment. Follow your heart while thinking of the happiness of others.
I know it is impossible to be happy and full of glee 24/7, but I do so enjoy thinking of you all living in happy states of mind.. Productivity, creativity and accomplishments filling your days with rewarding moments of pure satisfaction. Positive and loving energy to all. Share a smile today!
Even if someone totally disagrees with you or does things differently, you may learn something from them. Avoid getting trapped in a mindset. “This is the way, it has to be” and free your mind to consider other possibilities.
