It probably won't come as a suprise to most of you that I have a reasonably obsessive nature. I think it comes from my Dad... once we get a taste for something we like, we need some more. I showed some blank wooden dolls a while back that I was going to paint and give as a gift, and I finally, finally got around to painting them yetserday... and it was amazing! I can't show mine just incase the recipents decide to click over here (I have no idea who reads this sometimes...), so I'm contenting you all with some of these amazing dolls I found on Etsy and Flickr-- I bought my blankies at the Wunderkind Shop btw.
And so, now all I can think about is painting these little wooden dolls, about Christmas time and how they would make perfect gifts for certain people, and I have 2 birthdays coming up as well. I need to slow down and take a few deep breathes, but the sketches are flowing... I spent about 6hrs yesterday painting when I should have been sewing and now I'm busting to varnish them instead of making more lambies for the stall on weekend... so anyhow... I think I'll sew and then reward myself with varnishing them...
I love when I love the process as opposed to the simply the finished object! :)
Happy Tuesday-- hope you all get some work done!
