Hello Bloggers and Fellow Deskers,
My working hours have changed, so my Wednesdays are not what they used to be - but the lovely LLJ has very kindly offered to link up for me so I don't have to miss my weekly dose of snouting round other people's workdesks and still get to show you what I've been up to this week. If you would like to join us, please pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and click on Mr Linky.
I've been crafting in the garden again today, making the most of the summer while I can - as I type this at 8.30 on Tuesday evening, darkness is already falling and there are tiny bats flitting about outside, where only a couple of hours ago I was playing with Paper Clay to make this little guy ...
No, it's not Davros - when he grows up, I think he wants to be a mediaeval King's Fool - but he may yet change his mind! On Sunday, I had the most amazing and inspiring day with the talented Tanya Goddard, who creates art dolls. Tanya comes from Russia, where there is a tradition for these wonderful, expressive character dolls. It was such a privilege to spend a day with Tanya, learning all her secrets and I feel SO inspired!! She gave me some Paper Clay to make my homework - brilliant stuff to use, which I believe you can get on Amazon.
At my next lesson, I will learn how to make the body and clothes - I love that Tanya uses recycled materials and things like toilet paper to make her beautiful sculptures, definitely a woman after my own heart!
So, I will checking in at Julia's when I get home from work this evening - see you there!
Thanks for popping in to visit me today :)
