 Well, Art is you has come and gone!   What a wild ride!!!  It was fantastic...and I'm still all confused now that I'm home!  I have seen so much inspiration....learned so many new techniques ...found out about new tools and gadgets and doo-dads!   A Billion new art friends!  It's hard to get back to "reality"!!!

But the Tiny Doll 2 day class went great!  Everyone created a doll....and the girls were so excited that they could hold it in their hands....and admire these tiny works of art!  Each one of the dolls took on life and I am so proud of everyone, especially for the girls that have never made a doll, or worked with paperclay.  This was one of the best experiences I have had making dolls and doing art !!!
