Bread Fairy at CreativFestival in Toronto!

This is my Bread Fairy, She'll be at CreativFestival ->

'Cited as "one of the best" in the 2003 issue of Vogue Patterns, the Creative Sewing and Needlework Festival was established in 1988.

Today, the fall festival, the world's largest public event of its kind, covers 200,000 square feet of exhibit space (twice that of 2001) and the spring show has grown larger than pre 2002 fall events. Here you can learn how to put your own one-of-a-kind stamp on everything from clothes and curtains to greeting cards and accessories. From embellishing off-the-rack-items to constructing custom clothing and jewellery, the Festival is known all over the world as the premier consumer show for creative individuals who craft-it or create-it themselves.
Whatever the art from or medium, you can see, touch, feel and buy the latest fibre, paper, textile, craft, decorating and other creative arts related supplies, equipment and services in an interactive retail marketplace and educational forum...'( from

the Creativfestival and CDAA (with my Bread Fairy) at:

Wild Art Dolls will have two new owners and moderators!

Wild Art Dolls will have two new owners and moderators.

One is Stefania Morgante, usually called "Stef" here at Wild Art
Dolls. She lives in Italy and she's been a member of this group
since 2004. You may know her lovely dolls from her website .
I also interviewed her in 2005, and you can read about her dollmaking

The other new owner and moderator is Jody (also called JoTee) from New Mexico. You may have seen some of her dolls at her blog,

I'm honored that these two very talented and enthusiastic women have volunteered to take the helm at Wild Art Dolls!
Thank you to every member of Wild Art Dolls. I've had a great time as
the list owner, and this has always been the easiest group to moderate.

I hope that you'll be just as supportive of Stef and Jody in their new
roles at this group.

Porcupine Elf

This is a little Porcupine...He is sleeping in his cave...Prosculpt, little mother of pearls, metal and little white beads. He is on a silver natural leaf.
The body is painted with acrilics and gold paint. This is a little 'lucky charm'!
About 2.4 inches

sculpture in Prosculpt and paper rice

'nothing is as it seems'. This sculpture is all in Prosculpt, with porcelain leaves (white/green and white/blue). The body is cover with paper rice and handpainted with acrilics. Why 'nothing is as it seems'? because the body is crossed by channels of energy that we cannot see, but they are, and these channels are our artistic vibration, our energy into the Art and the life

visual appeal in Arts, crafts, collection:What do you think?

Leslie is a verbal person and She says ‘my humor is most often verbal’. She is fascinated by light (windows, water, mirrors, reflections…) and She often buy beads for that quality. She cannot work with fabrics.
Dianne loves seeing, touch, taste, scent and hearing, She says ‘I love things shiny, and I also like the texture look, again not having to feel it but to see the differences…’
Anna:’ I collect things because of how they look and/or feel. First something has to be visually appealing to me. Perhaps the color, the shape, or even possibly the memory that it evokes. How do I "feel" when I look at it? Happy, sad, reflective, uneasy, etc. Does it make me smile or chuckle? Does it conjur up images of Fall, colored leaves, crisp air and woodburning stoves? Does something about it remind me of my mom, my childhood or an event with one of my children or grandchildren.’
But Anna says…’ My kids like to remind me that when they were little I would take
them into a store or a craft sale, and then say "Look with your eyes...NOT with your hands!" and then proceed to pick up and touch just about everything.'
And you?
