a commissioned project for a "traditional" rabbit

a commissioned project for a “traditional” rabbit

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”. As one of my client’s says: Life showed up. For those of you who supported me this year, mentally, spiritually, creatively and financially… I can’t begin to describe how much it meant. I felt really alone at times, but my friendships (and my pets) kept me going when things were bleakest. Its been pretty much a year of survival which has meant not a lot of creative output. I did get a commission to make a “traditional” bunny rabbit. It was fun and hopefully will be well-loved.

Dollmaking as a Transformative Process

My birthday present to myself this year was taking the above class (sign-ups open until March 15th) from an artist who’s work I have long admired, Pamela Hastings (in conjunction with another artist, Barbara Kobe). I will share small bits and pieces here as they fit in with my larger explorations.

This is the body of a doll and some pieces I am playing with.

I’m sorry

I treated you shabby. You gave me this lovely container for thoughts and I treated you like a casual, disposable whim that I no longer had time for. Well, all that has changed. Starting with this post I am joining the challenge and I am going to commit to post at least once a week here. To show you I mean it, I have posted about my new project in the Dolls section under Damaged Goods.

Blog, please find it in your heart to forgive me.
