Earlier this week, I received a notice from the post office that they had tried to deliver a package while I was at work. Thursday I went home early (which for me means, on time for a change) so that I could go to pick up my package. Russian printing all over the box - YAY! My doll from Lubov had arrived! Carefully but quickly I tore into the box, eager to see what Lubov had made. Imagine my delight and laughter as I pulled her out of the box!
Didn't Lubov do a fabulous job!? Look at the detail. Dare I say it? She looks so much like me, from the blue eyes down to the frou-frou flip flops! Even the crocheted pouch is something I would happily carry in real life. I justLOVE it!!!
I am really impressed by Lubov's talent! Her skill is amazing and her techniques are very interesting, expecially for building the dolls body - it's partially soft instead of all Sculpey. I'd like to dissect one of her dolls to see how she builds it, but I certainly won't dissect this one!
My little contribution traveled a very different path into becoming. She is a cloth and clay doll, with ropey limbs a la Deirdra's princess bug doll. I cal her Seaside Sally.
She was very different for me, but I think it's fun to play with different ways of making faces, et al.
Now summer comes to an end and the Girls of Summer have to sit it out for a while and autumn begins to blow in. Art & Soul is coming up, and I will be selling at Vendor Night on Saturday the 3rd of October! My first sales event in years. I've been busy making soldered pendants and have some dolls in progress. I'd better rev up production so I'll have something to sell!
