The creation of a Blog Award

As most of you know I am new to blogging,

and I have to tell you I have fallen
in love with the concept of blogging.

By no means do I claim to be an expert
in blogging, but I do know what I like
to read, and look at.
I have done a ton of reading blogs,
a whole lot of looking at pictures,
and content, and much pondering of
just what blogging means to me.

I think blogging means a lot of different
things to a lot of different people.

I want to give back to my fellow bloggers,
who I now consider my friends.

So, I have created a new blog award.

It comes with a creed that includes my ideas of what
blogging means to me.

I think I get it now.

I have found out that being a blogger is much more
than just networking and trying to sell my dolls.
I realize now that blogging is a network of sharing,
and gathering new friendships. I have met many
wonderful people who really care
about their fellow bloggers.

The rules are simple:

Upon receiving this award,
simply pass it on to (one) other person,
and tell why you gave this person the award.

I will start out by giving this award to
Joanna Thomas. I have admired Joanna's dolls
for many years now. Her warm and wonderful blog,
her exquisite dolls, and Joanna the person
exemplifies what blogging is all about.

Best present ever

For Christmas this year my husband surprised me with a Canon EOS Rebel xsi camera. It is the best camera I have ever owned.
For Mothers Day he got me a Macro lens for taking pictures of my
miniatures. I should be getting the lens Friday or Saturday. I can't wait. I never thought I would ever get so excited about a camera lens. I have been playing with the new camera since Christmas, and now I think I have the hang of it.

Every time I take a picture now I have to run to the computer and
go to the sites I have saved that teach me how to use the I am really not a good photographer, so this camera lens is a must!! It will do all the work for me, all I have to do is press the button...well not quite, but it will

Asian Inspiration

Well, it's that time of year again.

Every year about this time I get in the mood to sculpt Asian children...don't ask me
I have spent hours and hours looking for just the right picture to give me the inspiration I need, to sculpt what I have in mind.

For me it's not the pose or surroundings, it's the face that seems to give me what I desire.

I have been like this for as long as I can remember.
My moods dictate what it is that I desire to sculpt.
Sometimes the moods last for one doll, sometimes for many dolls.
Has anyone else had this happen to them.

I guess that's why I don't take commissions anymore...if I am not in the mood to sculpt what was commissioned, then the sculpt just sits there waiting for my mood to change.

This is the picture that jumped out at fact it shouted and screamed at
The doll I am planning will not look anything like the picture, it's just the face that gives me
the inspiration. Hopefully this picture will be the one that helps me produce a good number of sculpts..
