I still play with dollies!

Never Want to Grow up

Yup…you heard correctly!  I still play with dolls!  I play with them in a different way than I did when I was a child.  I get a little more creative with them.  Wait a minute…I guess I did that too when I was younger.  Some things never change!

Anyhoo…I was playing around with some doll graphics and shrinky sink plastic (remember this when you were younger!)  I wanted to make some pins but they did not turn out the way I expected.  I started with a 5 cm circle and after baking the shrinky dink plastic I ended up with a 2 cm circle.  What can I do with these little things?  They are cute but they are pretty teeny!

Upcoming Fall Market

As I mentioned in my previous post I’ve been busy creating.  I’ve been reStyling or reDesigning thrift store finds and making some vintage inspired goodies.  The next market I will be in is Portobello West Fall Market.  Portobello West showcases wares from  local designers, artists & producers.  I was fortunate enough to be joining some talented peeps.  The Market is held at the Creekside Community Recreation Centre in Vancouver.  This is an awesome venue!

Anyhoo…below are some of my creations,
