About 15 years ago, Patricia bought a doll from a local crafter as a gift for her mother and the crafter let her pick the hair and eye color. She thought it might be fun to make one herself, so she found a local class from doll artist, Billie Rooker. She used doll making as a therapeutic outlet during her years as a high school math teacher and likes to joke that even if the students were out of control, the dolls would sit still! After making porcelain dolls for several years, she found an online class for soft dolls and made a doll that she describes as “gosh-awful” with a “nosed that looked like a mashed potato and hands that looked like Shrek.” Ready to give up, she found a class from doll artist Judy Skeel that was close to home and came away from that class with a doll that had a beautiful face and a perfect nose!

Guess what, I am under 200 emails that I have to answer..not bad eh?! I think I can do it over the next few days.
This is why there is coffee right?
But in my quest to clean up my inbox and make my to-do list one page long vs. needing a binder I had to show you my friend’s blog! Cindy is an off-the-hook mixed media artist. I’ve often just looked through her blog her etsy store which I implore you to go and visit! Here is a link: http://www.etsy.com/shop/CrimsonHeartStudios?ref=seller_info

So, it’s officially a hump day here at Darn Good Yarn but that’s good because I’m making something out of recycled sari ribbon yarn but, you’re just to have to watch the video to see what it is:) You’ll also see why I don’t care if I’m fat in my bathing suit this year:)
And remember, there is only a few days left to get 10% off the Original Premium Recycled Silk Yarn! Hurry!
