UPDATE ON THE PAST FEW MONTHS
Not sure where to begin, so much has happened since January.
Rodeo Rita was published in March issue and Sunburn Suzie was published in July issue of Soft Dolls and Animals Magazine.
In March, ten of my Fabulous Floozie dolls made their debut in a shop out in Scottsdale along with 4 other larger size dolls. In April Dottie the dog lady was sold I was happy and sad all at the same time.
May 1st, Twelve of my Fabulous Floozies are selected to go into Gallery 225 in Gilbert. Talk about exciting I was jumping up and down. The Fabulous Floozies are my designs. They are approximately 12 inches tall.
May 20th I attended a wonderful conference in New Mexico. Creations in Fiber in Albuquerque. I went with 5 other girls from our doll club (Dollie MaMa and the Fabric Floozies and Mary) Mary doesn't like the floozie part of our name but she still loves us and prays for us. I entered one of my dolls in a challenge C. C. Cookie is her name (This doll was adapted from a Patti Culea pattern) and I won first place in my category (Beginning Professional) which was another exciting moment.
I took a class from Arley Berryhill a wonderful Artist and Teacher, the class was Masked Ball. This class was on costuming I learned quite a bit from him. Arley was also very entertaining I thoroughly enjoyed his class. As soon as I finish her I will post a photo of her. I wasn't happy with her head so I deheaded her and now she is sporting a new head just need to sew on her hair and arms.
I met so many talented artists at this conference I am looking forward to next year.
