In my garden I have hummingbirds who are daily visitors, and yesterday I am quite sure I saw a baby hummingbird.... flew to get the camera, and snapped a few pictures, but it was sooo small.., I really don't think it will show up as much more than a tiny blur! Today, I am beginning to update my website - not much fun, it is very slow going and I would love to have a newer look... but will work with the site I have for now. I am updating the "Digital" section first - as those pictures are all re-sized and available on the computer. Many of them have already been on this blog as a banner or art.
Several of years ago - I found this neat gypsy fortune teller and really loved the idea of a doll with a skirt with text and such. This particular fortune teller must have been a "game: about love and astrology. Since it did not come with a box, I really do not know how to interpret the pages, but it has sections named Cupid, Juno, Apollo, Mercury and etc. So, it was from this vintage gypsy I found my inspiration for the Doll Journal I will be teaching at "ART-IS" in October. The first one I made and taught originally had a vintage Dennison Doll as the theme for the journal. For the Cromwell event I made a change and we will be doing a French version - more of the Marie Antoinette style.
Usually, I am not a fan of August in New England... way to much heat and humidity for me, but so far this August has been delightful...warm days, nice cool nights! Wonderful! I was working on a new blog banner, but the proportions just weren't to my liking so here is an August picture - just for fun and a second one I am working on for Halloween.
Just wanted to let everyone know that Jeniffer Paganelli is going to be giving a workshop at ART-IS-YOU on Monday October 13th! Here are pictures of what she will be teaching - her kits are just delicious.. filled with the most wonderful goodies!
