A Bit of History

 To get my creative juices flowing (and maybe yours too)...

So I took a little detour from my day-to-day and drove on down to 
Roger's Gardens (In Corona Del Mar)
 It truly is one of the most inspiring places to visit this time of 
year. I only had about an hour or so, I had to take in all 
the beauty is such a short bit of time.

 I worked at the store many moons ago so it holds a 
very special place in my heart. I still see some familiar faces.

Roger's Gardens is celebrating 50 years, this year. If you get
a little time to yourself and you've never been...try and get there 
at least once in your lifetime. Truly a special place.

Big Blossoms!

Finally added the new Big Blossoms to my shop! Loving how they
turned out. These just may have to stay with me for a while.

Happy Wednesday! xx

All In Due Time

This little girl is so colorful!
 Kinsey is the artistic one of the bunch.

Lilli is shy and quiet, but you'll always have a 
friend when she's around.

Mya is the little adventurer. She doesn't mind getting 
her hands dirty or her hair messy!

 As I'm staring at my worktable, day in and day out, I constantly
remind myself that finishing projects takes time. Especially when you
are experimenting with lots of extra little details and new dimensions.

I really wanted these girls to be unique. Different from anything I've
created before. Bigger, Better? Maybe! They are definitely
 ONE-OF-A-KINDSwith no duplicates ever in sight.

Happy Weekend!

Summer Is On Its Way

Oh MY!!!! 
3 months have passed with no blog post. Geez, I've been slacking!

Not intentional of course. Some of you may know that I work a
day job as a Landscape Designer / Horticulturist. With Spring
under my belt, I've FINALLY gotten a grip on managing all 
that is MY LIFE!

So excited to show you a 'snippit' of my new girls. They are called 
BIG BLOSSOMS and are much larger than my original dolls.
They have been about a year in the working, sad to say. I honestly
think they are going to be worth it. I still have lots of details to work
out but hopefully will have some finished creations to show you soon.

Good bye Spring! Hello Summer!!!

 I have a terrible case of SPRING FEVER! I think the only
cure is a trip to one of my favorite places in this world...

The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens
in San Marino, CA

 The wisteria in the Japanese Garden will be blooming soon.

 The roses in the Rose Garden should just be leafing out.

The scents are amazing. The sights, breathtaking!

 Stroll through the Children's Garden. So many wonderful
things to touch, smell and explore through the eyes
of a child.

And the Cactus Garden should still be in Winter bloom.

I'm going to take a few hours to just wonder, relax and take a 
step back from my crazy, busy schedule. If you ever get
the chance, go visit. You won't be sorry.

Just Say It!

 It's almost time... candy hearts, chocolate boxes, Hallmark
cards and flowers. Sometimes I wish EVERYDAY was
Valentine's Day!  I think we often forget to stop, take that
moment to say "you are loved'. 

So this is a gentle reminder to myself, and all those, who like me
get carried away with the constant craziness we call LIFE.
However you can, simple or elaborate. Let those around
you know how much you care for them.  We all need
to be reminded. 

Happy Hearts Day!
