I haven't forgotten to post my dresses, but I am not feeling well. I've barely been able to do anything at all since my last post. When I'm feeling a bit more like myself, they will be posted.

Southeastern Paper Doll Party 1

The theme was Evening in Paris and I had been completely unable to think of what to draw for the dress-a-doll contest. The night before it occurred to me that I should look for inspiration from Paris Fashion Week. Great idea right? These images are my inspiration. I will have to add pictures of my actual drawings later on, because I foolishly forgot to photograph them. The colors are different, the blue dress became red (doll has a red flower in her hair) and the cream became yellow. Can't wait to share them with you.

No idea where this one came from, other than it's part of a fall-winter collection (I think this years, but I can't be sure).

This one is part of Elie Saab (Spring-Summer, I'm pretty sure) 2012 collection. I love Elie Saab, they make some wonderful clothing.

I really like both, the blue is so ethereal and flowing, while the cream is smart and sophisticated. I wish I could pull either of them off, but alas, I am a short woman.

Not a PD, but something I drew

As one of those team spirit among employees things, my job had everyone come in, dip their hands in paint and make a hand print on the wall. Now they also mentioned in the announcement email that it was not mandatory. Later on they claimed they never said any such thing, but I had the email still as proof. This matters because I didn't go, my sister was moving into a new apartment that day and needed a hand. Since I don't carry paint around with me, but do carry sharpies I made one another day. I like it and it's unique among all the blue palm-prints. I thought about you while on my lunch break and thought I'd post it. See, I have been drawing things!

New Printer Scanner!

It's in route from California right now! I can't wait. I've been researching for weeks and when I finally made my decision it got complicated. First, they said it was delayed, then they said it was out of stock, next it was discontinued. My order was canceled. Thanks to Amazon I found another one and for $50 cheaper! Not in snazzy black, but in a nice brown color that apparently people were uninterested in. If it works, the outside color is unimportant, if you ask me. I wanted a good one, because I plan on using it to make nice PD souvenirs to send to parties and to start working on making sets that maybe someone out there will be willing to buy. Didn't want one that would be substandard for what I need to for. By the way, did you know it's nearly impossible to find a reference to how well it copies artwork? Had to comb through a lot of customer comments to find that info. This year I plan to draw more, post more, etc. Stay tuned for updates!
