Gathering...

i'm still going through my accumulation of things through the years...and there are dolls...so far these...


all made at different times for different reasons
i must decide what to do with them. i'm determined to do something or they will have to go to someone who will... i'm sure there are more around that have not yet been unearthed.

haven't done much this week other than work on my journal in Karen Ruane's Alchemy class. each one of us has chosen a different theme so i'm learning so much as each person gathers and posts info that will find a place in their journal. my theme is Family so i've been going through old albums and letters and papers that i've accumulated through the years. here's just a clipped view of what i've been working on so far.

my dad and my grandmother have been the focus so far
wishing you all a good week. stay warm and stay safe.

Deanna~ I truly love seeing all of your different work :) The headless doll with a patch on the chest is very touching for some reason. Enjoy your finding and creating!

Yes i understand, what to do with our old treasures, it seems like an endless question. I can't bear the thought of some stranger making money from my old childhood friends. Your dolls are beautiful.

I have been going through things too, trying to decide what is important and useful. Your dolls are lovely.
Your Alchemy class sounds fun. :)

Your dolls are fantastic. I am a doll maker. Karen's classes seem so wonderful and of course your work is stunning as usual

I wonder if you're having Winter? Winter seems the perfect time for unearthing what's been stored (the dolls are delicious), and finding a way to express family (Journal is looking fine)...yes, unearthing, gathering and expressing is just the right sort of thing for the season (maybe any season.

I'm sure an idea will occur to you - once you start thinking about something, inspiration usually strikes.

Although possibly in the middle of the night, so keep pen and paper by the bed!

your dolls are intriguing. wondering about the one on the far left...and the headlessness of one. they must hold stories.

It's funny how inspiring old forgotten treasures can be. Digging them out often starts me off on another new piece.

Peggy said...

The doll on the right -- maybe she's already finished? I love your journal pages, the golf swing theme is so great!

There is something about this time of year that encourages sorting and organizing and choosing I think... I have an assortment of unfinished dolls too.

Anita said...

Your journal is lovely and am sure it'll be filled with beautiful memories .
