Never enough time! OWOH ends. Boo-hoo.


It's after 4 in the morning and there is no way I'd ever be able to visit every blog on the One World One   Heart ride. I find it amazing that 247 (256 at last count) sweet bloggers visited me and took the time to leave me a message.    Those who felt a connection with me are now followers. Welcome new friends!  

A new journey awaits us.  Later today, my beloved will pull the winner's names from a hat. I welcome any late entries and will notify the three winners on the 18th.

goodnight dear readers

Art doll work in progress

I'm not sure how it happens. The clay gets warm in my hands and I begin to sculpt and form and without really thinking about it, the doll begins to be revealed. Yes, I have an original idea in my mind and maybe I even sketched it out but, the doll truly creates itself. 

The ideas flow as I work with the clay. This one in particular has evolved during the process. I didn't know at the beginning that she would end up becoming a wood sprite with a dress made of leaves.

Here she is; unfinished. I have yet to seal the clay and then the wonderful task of selecting the acrylic paints begins. I have a fondness for autumn. One, I love trees. Two, I love the colors, scents, and food of fall. 
I imagine her being a shy creature. She hides among the leaves of gold and ruby.
What should I name her?
