Blisters and Paper Cuts

I've taken a bit of a break from my most recent doll, Gilroy, to create wedding invitations for our friend, Jessica.  It's been a couple years since I've created invitations on a large scale.  By the end I had blisters on my thumbs and paper cuts on many fingers!  It is hard to believe that just a couple years ago I was creating custom wedding invitations for multiple customers, all at the same time!  With all that said, however, I really LOVE these invitations!  The style is very fitting for her mid-summer, country style wedding and I think her color choices are wonderful! 

 I've blurred out their full names (to protect the innocent, perhaps?)   Congratulations Jessica and Blayne!

Dupont and Friend

A few weeks ago I started a new doll.  I wanted to try making an animal and for me, a dog is the most perfect animal.   As I was developing this doll, it was taking on a familiar face.  Unfortunately, that face was that of our beloved Molly.  Not wanting this doll to be a memorial of Molly, I set it aside for a bit.  Well, I finally finished him.

Meet Dupont.  Dupont has many dreams of being a heroic chap but Mum puts ribbons on him.  Quite upsetting.

Follow the progress of Dupont ...

And here is a sneak peek at Gilroy.....I'm not going to tell you what or who he is, this is just a clue.
