"Planting Daisydolls in a Row"

I'm so excited because I just bought myself a paper cutter and a binding machine. Now I can make fun journals of all sizes with papers as thick as I want(O: This is the first one I've made with my new toys for designing my daisydolls in rows. I was talking to a friend of mine about how many journals we each have and really there should be a journal for every mood. Especially when an artist such as myself has about a zillion different styles of painting and drawing. This way they can be somewhat organized. That's the Capricorn in me always wanting to be more organized than I actually am. I guess now that I have my new little toys to make journals I will end up having an entire bookshelf one day of them all each filled with different styles of doodles or paintings I've spent my life working on. I may not be a financially rich artist but no one will ever be able to say that I don't have anything to show for my life's work. Some of us are the hardest working artists creating art everyday, it's what we love.
To me:
~Art supplies are like gold~
~Spending the day creating with no interruptions is like an exotic vacation~
~The sound of nothing just peace and quiet is pure bliss~
~Playing music loud and singing along while I create art is also bliss~
~Spending days in the studio with my girls are unforgettable and treasured moments~
~Having this blog has been such a source of encouragement thanks to all my followers and their amazing comments~
~Having artistic blogs to follow is an amazing source of inspiration~

"Life is good"!! Have an inspired day(O:

Meet India, she is such a treasure! I made from a tea cup I brought back from India last year. She sits 6 1/2 inches tall. The base she sits on is a beautiful square plate I found in Crate & Barrel that matched the tea cup perfectly. India has been embellished with fabrics I also brought back with me. Her hair is a combination of wool and acrylic fibers and she is jeweled with brass accents. India has henna patterns on the souls of her feet and around the tops of her arms and sits in this peaceful position as she meditates. She's waiting to sit in your home and bring you peace.

Meet Mable, she's trying her best to keep her skin glowing. She believes in nourishing her body from the inside out but once a week a good facial mask and cucumbers on her eyes make all the difference in the world. She stand 8 inches tall and would love to sit on the side of your tub or on your dresser. She could spend hours in the bathroom! * Mable is an original one of a kind decorative Art Doll and not meant to be played with as a toy.
