This quote says it all for me:
"I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to."
My small place is my studio area in the corner of my living room. My Whimcees are all the dolls, bears and other creatures that I sew from cloth or sculpt from clay, the cards and papercraft projects that I create.
It is with this blog I hope to share my world created in my small space.

Remember The Sad but Patient Little Doll?
Remember my poor, sad little doll - who waited so patiently for me to finish her? Well, I am happy to say - and SHE is extremely happy to say - that she is now finished!
Her beginning was here on 6-21-10. I know! 2010!
Then she sat patiently waiting in this condition for a long time. From 6-24-10 . . . . . .
until 3-23 -11 when she had a stuffed body, head and one arm and waited again. I know!
In fact she waited until 5-23-13. Two years and 2 months, I am ashamed to say. All this time she became more sad and impatient. This is when you last saw her in May of this year - she now had a finished body and could stand alone, but she asked me 'Are you never going to finish me? Don't you like me?"
I know! It was time to get my rear in gear. So, first she got her needle sculpting to bring up her features and open her eyes, her makeup and she wanted lovely reddish brown hair styled in a bun. She had waited so long - how could I not grant her every wish. :<) She was so excited!
Isn't she cute! She was so happy! I think she was getting ready to wait again - but I wasn't done yet!
Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog today! Please check back tomorrow for more of the finishing process of the little doll. Wishing you a happy one!
