There's a lot  because I was so inspired  and so will you be when you see all the wonderful images. 
Deviant scrap

 and now for the pretty images in "Feminin" 




 I was in heaven 
 Two digital pieces  Tilted "The bride" 
and "The Goddess of all that's beautiful and light" 

Reveal and Admire

Swaps have been sent.
   They have arrived safe and sound to their new owners.
 So I can now reveal them to you so you can admire and drool ... Just don't drool over your computer pad or you may get a electric shock! LOL  


 This is the tattered heart hanger I made for Teri  for a swap at blissfullART  and this fabulous tattered heart is from Teri
 look at those Yummy buttons  and it has a hidden message 


 and  this is the beautiful gypsy soul bottle I received from Darlene

 I love the colors of this silk ribbon tied around  it reminds me of a skirt I once had years ago
 look at the details
a true soul bottle filled with pearls for wisdom


 Thanks to both Teri and Darlene for swapping with me

Testing , testing

This is my test tin ..... I'm taking part in a swap at MAMA and I needed to test out how it was going to work out ....  the images are from Paper Whimsy sheet #035

 The tin is tiny, it 's a mini Altoids tins  



Once I figured out all the in's and out's.  It took me ages to decide on what beads and flowers I wanted to put on the front....  of course I'm completely hooked on making them now.... the downside more  mints to eat.     I'll show you the other tin when my partner has received it

My first dance

My first doll inspired by a story about me .....As  teenagers my friend Sarah and I decided that we wanted to try ballet and tap classes..... LOL No really! This is true story.  We went to our local village hall twice a week dressed in pale pink Leotards, pink tights, a small dance skirt and ballet shoes. We tried.......  and  I mean tried to keep up with the small five years old in the class. I can't think what made us think, that at the ages of fifteen/sixteen  that we could suddenly learn to dance ... I think we had visions of  sugarplums  and such.... and I actually think, we thought we would be good at it.... 



Thank goodness one took photo of us because.... what a sight it was!!!!  But like wanting to learn dance, I  have wanted for ages to learn  How to make a doll but unlike learning to dance I didn't have to dress up in a leotard and tights....  but I can say I did  if it helps you .... I got lots of help watching a tutorial  from Moriah Batterly at the http://clothclaydolls.ning.com.

Unlike my short lived dance lessons I do want to try to make more dolls and I promise there will be  No photos of me in a pink leotard and tights..... LOL
