More encouragement: Some of my friends over at Gritty Jane Cloth and Clay dolls and Nancye's Art Dolls had already congratulated me on being published, but I wanted to wait until I had seen it with my very own eyes. Yesterday I received my copy of Stampington and Co.'s Art Doll Quarterly, and it's true: I've been PUBLISHED!!! yay! It feels good, and doesn't the Green Queen look good on that purple background! I can't wait to share it with my school friends tomorrow, especially the Queen's inspiration, Sharon Treadgold! If you're interested in reading more about the origins of the Green Queen, check out my post here.)
This is the cover of the Art Doll Quarterly issue, which, I believe, hits newsstands this week. Fabulous issue loaded with every variety of doll and creativity, as you can tell from this cover girl!
Also, I wanted to spread the word that anyone interested in making dolls should check out nancye's OWOH giveaway at http://nancyesartandbeautifuljunk.blogspot.com/2010/01/owoh.html
Her giveaway is a doll making class! Or maybe I shouldn't tell you, because I'm hoping to win that prize myself! (among many others!)
And finally, happy birthday to birthday girl Deirdra!!! We had a great time yesterday shopping at the Goodwill to find sweaters we could alter, à la Altered Couture (another Stampington magazine - they're awesome!). Deirdra has great step by step photos on her blog so you can see how hers turned out. Maybe I'll finish mine later today and post later. Ciao for now - got to get busy!
