Alphabet Magnet Tutorial « Indie House

Image
I found this tutorial on Facebook Alphabet Magnet Tutorial « Indie House & I think I will make some with the names of my friends kids.
They can learn how to spell their names.
Cute & simple!

Thank you...

to all of you wonderful creators that were kind enough to leave me such sweet and encouraging comments on my ADO Elements doll.

I have not been making dolls for very long therefore your kind compliments give me much encouragement to pursue my doll making road.

All my best to you great artists and especially ADO for letting non-members to join in the fun!!!

" Fawen"...Fire,air, water, earth ...nature Thank you Dawn for the GREAT name!!! I'll send you a little gift from my studio!










Tah-Dah...!

Well, I managed to finish my "ADO 4 Elements Doll"! ...I am quite happy with the way she turned out!!!
She has no name, so if one of you could come up with a great name I just might send you a goodie from my studio/Etsy shop.

Now off to other creative things...

I am currently working on a portrait commission for a very good friend. Inspired by a class picture of her two boys ...
...and a painting of "Pierrot" for my dear Mom who is far from me!






July 15th

First things first...I am proud to announce that the winner of my first art doll giveaway is : JodieB.
Congrats!!! I can't wait to get "Clarisse" out to you!




I would also like to greatly thank the few of you who were willing to sign up to my blog and participate!





Now, on the unfortunate not-so highlight of the day. After so much excitement to see Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, I have to say it was a bit disappointing. The book is a thousand times better! I know...the books are always better than the movies, but in this case the movie missed the whole point of the story...so ~so disappionted.

Happy Bastille Day...

Art Doll GIVEAWAY!!!!!

Ok...so this is my very first Doll Giveaway and here is what she (the prize) looks like.
"Clarisse" has been living in our home for quite a while now...with lots of unfinished parts.
She finally spoke up and warned me that she would cast a spell on my family if I did not finish her.

Now that she is done I DO NOT wish to sell her...superstitious...?!@

... So Clarisse will get to live in a new home!

To win her is easy, peasy!

Nerve rackin'...

Nerve rackin...I'm starting to feel the pressure! While checking out my blog list of great artists one popped out especially...Much ADO about Art Dolls! Yeah...I signed up for the 4 Elements Challenge, which was a great idea at the time without realizing that it was during summer vacation and small child would be at home (though she is in day camp this week) .

We are only 9 days away, my doll is only half finished and with the a/c I've caught my first head cold of the season. Being French my body sometimes has a hard time adjusting to a/c.

Speaking of FRENCH I have decided to host my very first art doll GIVEAWAY on July 14th Bastille day.

**All you need to do is drop me a little comment and your email. My daughter will be pulling from the hat in the afternoon of the 14th of July. I will announce the winner that same evening!**

I will post a picture of the prize on friday!!!!

Happy 4th of July...

Hope everyone will enjoy this wonderful day !

Picnics, fairs, fun and...

fireworks (my favorite)!!!
