Le *sigh*

I've been delinquent on my blog postings for various reasons....

However, here's a photo that M posted on FB a while back that makes me smile...

Hope you're enjoying the Summer, where ever you may be.

"The Green Man" Group Art Exhibit - Part II

My 2nd submission is a "Skogsrå" roly poly wood chime doll.

Legend has it that a skogsrå is a Scandinavian forest spirit who appears as a beautiful woman who lures men into the woods. Often, such travelling men will then disappear - never to be seen again. While the skogsrå is beautiful on the front, her back side consists of a tail or a hollow tree trunk.

"The Green Man" Group Art Exhibit - Part I

One of the submissions I did for the show is named, "The Green Man and the Nature Spirits Entourage". It is a 5 piece nesting doll set with the following cast of characters: "The Green Man", "Elder Mother", "Lunantishee", "Tree Sprite" and the "Pillywiggin".

Here are some photos of the process:

I made a felt wreath for "The Green Man" to wear:


:) Happy Weekend to you!

This Week...

I managed to complete a 2nd piece for "The Green Man" group art exhibit tonight (!!!), which I'm excited about...

And I finished another pack of Polaroids...

Taking photos of animals can be tricky, as you can see 2 very blurry wasted polas...however I am *SO* in love with this by Japanese photographer Miyoko Ihara.

Happy Thursday!
