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.

Bed For The Princess Doll
The Princess ha a bed! My son Jim helped me make it while he was here for Easter weekend. I started with wood but had no small saw that worked. So I used one of the 3-sided display boards that I had here - as I could cut that with a utility knife - and assembled it using a hot glue gun. I wanted a whimsical look to go with the style of doll so painted it a bright Kelly Green with acrylic paint. The board took the paint really well and only had to use two coats. Now I am working on the dust ruffle and mattresses. The Princess is now dressed also so will share those photos tomorrow.
I had not created for so long that Jimbo was used to my workdesk chair being "HIS" chair from the time he came to live with me. He is very good about sitting in the window or on the cat tree when I am in the chair but he is long suffering and as soon as I leave to do something else (like laundry) he is on the chair. When I return to work again he turns to me and has that look like "What, again?" I wish there was room for two chairs. :<)
Thank you for visiting my blog today! We have beautiful sunshine today in this part of WI - everything is green and Spring flowers are blooming. I can't wait to see the flowering trees! Wishing you a lovely day today!
