Gifts,Sketches, Journal Pages and Art Dolls

Greetings and Salutations!
Boy oh Boy it was Christmas at the Studio this Week. Pattee from Odd-Dolls sent me "Dwiddle." Look how cute this little House Elf is...(by the way, Pattee is offering a workshop on how to create these little guys, so check it out over at her Ning Group). Click the Badge on my sidebar and it will take you to her Ning Group! Dwiddle is sitting with me in the Studio! I absolutely love him and Thank You Pattee for making me smile! The next gift is from Colleen over at LoopyBoopy. I am a collector of her Art Dolls and if you haven't gotten one yet, well you need to get one. Make sure you get it when you see it, because if not, it will be gone! LOL Thank You so much Colleen for Sending me Joelle. I love her too and she has found a home in my Studio. However, I have to feed her Martini's here and there! LOL Joelle and Dwiddle are up to no good! LOL Thank you girls for making me giggle!

I've been working on some new Art Dolls for my Etsy Shop and New Website. These little gals are not finished, but close to being done. I will post them all here before I place them over at Etsy. I'm loving this cold weather. I get to dress them in Winter Clothes!

Now if I can just figure out how to get some of pictures loaded right over here on Blog, I'd be set. Sorry for the sideways photos. LOL As you all know, I've been spending time with my Art Journals and my Sketching. I have made a goal to work in my Art Journals everyday and Sketch every night before I go to bed. As for the Art Journals, they are starting pages and I just love the fact that a page is never done. Man, you can keep going and going with these pages.

New Sketches for January 2010

Art Journal Pages in Progress! Try using watercolor with gesso! WOW and it's fun!

I will have updated and finished Art Dolls in a few days. I can't wait to show you all once they are finished. Stay Warm and Create Art Everyday!
Unitl Next Time...CHEERS!

You lucky duck you! Love your giftees from Pattee and Colleen!

Also like your new dolls - and yes, it is great to stay inside and create in this weather - SO cold!!!

Michelle, your sketches are excellent! I notice a big difference from when you started. Isn't it amazing how you loosen up
as you go along?

Wishing you a fabulous weekend!

I love Colleen's dolls and was so happy to have spent some time with one in the Traveling workshop.. I almost couldn't send her on : )

I love your new dolls Michelle! How cool that you used scrap booking with the bodies (Is that what you did?)

Your art journal pages are AWESOME!

Stay warm ~

Every time I visit here, my head just spins and pops off!!! I am so in awe of all the art dolls. Incredible.

Congrats on those dolls!! They are winners! You know... I have got to get started on my year of monsters journal project. I told myself I had to do the cover first... and found it was just delaying the whole thing because I did not have a concrete idea about the cover. Funny, that... the cover was holding me back from starting... who said you have to begin at the beginning. I will send you a peek of my first page.... HUGS
