My 17 year old daughter made it back from Nicaragua. She was home for one day and then left for camp (she is a counselor). She and my camera (again) will be back this weekend!! Her trip was, as I had hoped, life-changing. Every time she talks about leaving her new friends there, she cries.
I have been working steadily to complete the latest Dollandia Girls. I had to use Bailey's camera (not good...not her camera...but me using her camera!!) I will post better pics this weekend when I finally get my camera back! But here is a little sneak preview anyway!
I have been working so hard to complete these girls. All the arms and legs are ready and the bodies are ready. I just need to make skirts, put them together and get wigs done.
Here's the funny comment: (Keep in mind that a small amount of insanity runs in our family!) My 15 year old daughter, Bailey, came into the studio today. She was intently looking at the dolls and she said, "People need to be careful. Their necks are long and I'll bet they could be broken easily." I said, "No, there's a wooden armature in there. They aren't really fragile." Her answer? "Yeah....but I feel like I would love to pick one up and just crack her head off!" I couldn't help but laugh. There's not much that could stand up to THAT!! Truly.. .they aren't fragile.....but if you get one....please don't crack her head off! Ha ha!!!
