At last i'm taking some time to give you a bit of news! i have been quite busy lately, as you know i'm getting ready for my first dolls show in less than 3 weeks now.
I have to admit that i really start to stress now, although i like my dolls to have raw finishing touches, i keep thinking they will look too tatty amongst the beautiful creations that will be at the dolls show! Aaargggh!
That's probably just my opinion, but it seems that in France, dolls are mainly "neat and pretty", i don't know if you know what i mean...and i don't know if i'm right or not!
To be honest i think these dolls are gorgeous but with mine i love to make them like if they'd been found in an old attic, handmade by an old woman and her grand-daughter with what they had in their sewing basket!
Yes i do go a bit loopy with my imagination when i make a doll, i don't just think about their story or their character but i also think of the story of the person who would have made them.
I jump back in time, i picture a cute little cottage, with flowery wallpaper, the nice smell of a cake just baked floating in the air and some warm tea on the table! Then i imagine this old woman showing her grand-daughter how to basicaly sew some bits of fabric and lace on a quite primitive doll.
I could talk about them two for hours but unfortunately i don't really have much time and you might not want to know anyway!! hehe!!
Oh my god, i'm so anxious!!! Showing your work is like showing a big part of yourself, good and bad comments about it really have a strong impact on yourself!
So let's take a deep breath, a cup of tea and let's get on with it!! Thank you for reading me, it felt good to let it all out! haha!
Have a great day!! :)
