Art and more..

These little houses are the first 7 of 45 I am making for a swap as part of Creative Soul Retreat in March next year. I think perhaps I am nuts, but they will look fantastic when we all have 45 in different styles, sizes and shapes. the backgrounds are all the same, torn vintage papers, and they will all be coated in shellac, as for the in between - whatever is on my desk.
This Tassel Secrets Doll is a step out for me - working in pinks and some purples. She will be available on my Etsy in the next day or so.


This needle felted ATC and the one below were so fun to make, and a great way to use the tiny fabric scraps on my desk. The 'River' tassel doll was a commission and is (I think) hanging in her new home.

Ooooo! I love the little houses! That's determination...making 45 of them.
The doll necklaces are beautiful too. I keep looking at the little dolls on your etsy and thinking I will buy some. One of these days I will.

Your houses are incredible Julie. Such detail!

Love your pink and purple toned tassel doll and the commissioned one is lovely. Is that for our Jack? I know she loved the one you made for my birthday.

Love you
