This Art Life

My husband bought me this teapot 11 years ago in honor of my new found passion, art. I have about 35 teapots in my collection, and I use them all at some time or another.

Effigy Doll

Well here is a peek of how my effigy doll is evolving. It's funny how Cynthia has started with the head and I have started with a torso lol! While cynthia's is an expression of ugly feelings, mine is about what I wish, more of a wish doll really. Rather curvy, hint! hint! to the powers that be, nudge! nudge! say no more! oooo la la :)

Anybody else want to join in our doll challenge?
