Well, we've all mentioned times of being unable to find our crafting mojo, our muse, inspiration, etc....so today I put together this little gal.
My first thought was to make a doll so that we could each have one. Small, pin-size and maybe even wearable. Then I thought of making her with beads...then I thought of a doll. I was thinking up all sorts of things that I apparently can't do. lol All I could see was this skirt thing, in every version of her I came up with. I pinned these fabric pieces onto a patchworked piece of fabric, but it wasn't quite coming together, so I started putting her on paper. I didn't like her for most of the day. I put her away and when I came back to her, I could see that she needed legs...and then the little toes made me fall in love with her.
So, here's Mo Jo. I'm keeping her right at my desk to help me keep that crafting thang going.
I've been having fun and it's easier to try out different things when you don't have to run all over creation gathering materials. Lovin' my craft space. :)
Ok...well, now I'm just ramblin' so...see ya later.
