Andres after releasing a stash full of ladybugs in our garden last night
We've had a busy week full of usual summer activities (swim lessons, farmers markets , events at the park, bike races tomorrow, etc.) as well as a nice albeit short visit with family in town. Now it's time to get back to work!
Thank you all for your wonderful comments and emails regarding my doll for the Four Elements Challenge :) I've had several inquiries if Brighid is available for sale, and at this time she is not. I would like to build a shadow box/alter for her and then perhaps submit her for a showing. In the meantime I plan to make more dolls with decorative paper dresses embellished with dragonflies, butterflies, blossoms,etc. (I have years worth of saved specialty papers that are begging to be used). Hope that answers some questions for you~
My next update should include a few Day of the Dead dolls/Frida(s) as well. Just be patient with me as we still have summer plans and I have one more side project to complete for a deadline next week...my absence from blogging just means I'm conjuring up some new dolls and ideas or busy with family :)
And as you might have guessed we've been spending a lot of time in the garden. We released ladybugs in hopes that they will take care of those nasty aphids and I was reminded of the movie Microcosmos (made by the same director of Winged Migration~one of my favorite films). I highly recommend this one if you have kids who are into insects and bugs~this video is probably not for adults who easily get the heebie-jeebies~consider yourself warned :)
Have a fantastic weekend!
