Yes. Yes. I know. I’ve been absent, quiet, missing in action… just plain gone.
I began all these posts about my repainted dolls and then just… stopped. I have no excuse. Well, I actually have tons of excuses. I’ve been working. I’ve been flat out getting ready for the Etsy Makers Market. I’ve been tired.
So, just quickly – here is Melisandre – the Red Woman – from Game of thrones. First meet the doll who became Melisandre.
Then see the inspiration…
So there you have it. The Red Woman.
You know, sometimes I catch myself dreaming of a simpler life. One where I groom (work) and garden (my one and only hobby). What a nice dream that is… I’d have a lovely garden cause I’d spend my free time working in it and there’d be nothing pulling me this way and that, demanding my time. I’d work, then I’d rest, and I’d garden.
I can always dream, right?
Cause there ain’t no way it’ll happen in my life. I can’t help myself. I will always have things to do and things I want to do. There is almost no creative item or method I can look at and think “I want to try that”.
The saying might go “there’s no rest for the wicked” but it should say “there’s no rest for the creative”!
