After the article in SD&A it came to my attention that instructions for making the disc doll stand needed to be made available for those who weren't subscribing in 2009 when it appeared in SD&A. So I put up another blog, where I will be posting instructions like that and other tidbits which I hope will help others with like interests. Instructions are up with a little slide show of photos so one can see what I'm talking about.
The address is:

And Yes...that is not a miss-spell, I meant to do it!

arrived yesterday!!! Love it! In the index it reads: "What is Steam Punk? This fun and fabulous media as defined by an avid doll artist".
But what also got the attention of not only me but Jerry was the letter to the editor
from Laura Lee Ruckle in Pennsylvania, commenting on how much she liked Tillie and that she planned to make her for her grand-daughter who also teaches kindergarten. I wanted to try to contact Laura Lee, not only because this is also my name,but because it was such a touching letter, and I wished to offer a Tillie for that G-D's classroom. I went on line to see if I could find her, only to discover she had passed away in June. Thanks to the computer and my "detective work" I got a hold of one of her daughters (Linda),who gladly gave me the name and address of the teacher. So am sending her the doll, in memory of her grandmother.
Getting ready for Self-Portrait exhibit at Adams State College. Seemed perfect for me, as I have the "Me,Myself & I" winner for SD&A. Also added "Really Me" and Wendy, is now "I Can Fly". Exhibit will run for month of Sept. Also in Sept. we have Potato Festival, so am making things for a booth there. More crafty stuff than art, but good exposure. Also got word the grant came through, so will be teaching a doll class in Del Norte this fall. As Hubby often says,"Sorry we're out here in the boonies with nothing to do!
