Patsy Cline said it so well…some days things just are NOT all together. That’s how it is right now for the purple faerie ball joint doll that I am making. First the cat stole one of her lower arms—luckily I have made a paper under-body pattern that I am testing and it was no problem [...]
I just finished making my first ball jointed doll, and its been a fun filled learning curve. I’ve made many dolls, but she’s the most complex.

I’m in polymer clay mode this May, making lots of new beads and pins and faces–both in cabochon form and canes. I’ve made face canes before, but only using Fimo and Premo brands of polymer clay.
