weekend with Colleen Moody

Boy did we have an amazing weekend. Colleen Moody flew in and 20 of us took a 2 day workshop with her on sculpting a bird out of paperclay. We made our own feet and wings as well. As you can imagine, there was lots of laughs and fun. We got a good deal done on our dolls and then Sunday night after dinner, a few of us continued to work on our dolls while Colleen sat and relaxed (she worked hard, our Colleen!)

Colleen brought me this gorgeous doll as a gift. I know, i know, I'm a lucky girl!


and this is what i gifted Colleen with


the morning started off with a visit from kashie


and then it was time to get to work!


here's where i am at with my doll. she is a ballerina. she has her dress, it just needs to be sewn in the back. I'm thinking for her head, i'm going to make a crown out of some vintage metal fencing that i have.

thanks again to Colleen for a wonderful weekend and jetting across the united states to share your art and talents with us!
