So far, this summer has found me deep in the throes of intense horticultural noodling that far outstrips my mini-former-apartment-dwelling-aggi-expertise. That and the fact that Bob Marley seems to be haunting me with his “everything is going to be alright” chillin tunes hasnt inspired me to clean up the studio. Why does that matter, you ask? Well I cant make dolls if I cant find the fabric!
I do know where the machine is, and my art supplies are here somewhere… So I made this sketch book cover just to get my hands dirty with something other than dirt, and to force myself to step away from the computer. There was another impetus tho… I discovered that my neighbor is the famed LaLa of Paper Allure in Canton, Ohio. She was having a Driveway Sale and I scored big time! Boxes of beads, Juicy scraps of fabric that I would never think to buy but are glistening examples of perfection, and pieces of this and that rich with possibility! I couldn’t let the loot just sit there now could I?

Also, shoot on over to Mary Ann’s store and get some patterns to make some funky dolls this summer!
