I told one of my art members that I created soft rag dolls with my daughter when we homeschooled together. I couldn't find any photos of the pioneer series that I did, but I'm sure there are pics here in the studio. I've posted some shots of the button jointed dolls that we created. Most of these are similar in style. I just enjoyed painting those faces! Now I have bags full of dolls sitting in trunks, because my daughter won't let me get rid of them. :) She is somewhat sentimental. I'll try to find photos of the pioneer girls... they have a more antique look.

My dear husband who doesn't play an instrument at all, spent his day driving us to Barberville so I could meet Elle and listen to her string band play at the festival. He is a dear soul and really enjoyed seeing all the instruments and hearing the fiddle jams that broke out around the Pioneer settlement. The facilities were wonderful, and although the weather was a bit rainy in the beginning, the day turned out quite lovely. Caitlin got into several little sessions for some fiddle experience and also went into the dance area to try some contra dancing while Elle's band was performing. Fun day, and the best part was that I got to meet one of my art members in person. What a treat!

More Time For Art---feeling productive in the past few days with art getting finished and house remodeling projects getting started. And hey, today I bought new black waterproof Uniball pens for more journaling and sketching...life always feels good when you get to buy more pens. Go figure!
