I didn’t really have the cash to spend on the book. And, I didn’t really need another craft book. But this book caught my attention out of the corner of my eye. It had the most amazing primitive doll on the cover. I picked it up, glanced through it and put it in my basket. I knew I didn’t really have the money to spend on the book, but I COULD NOT PUT IT BACK. The book was securely in my clutches. I wanted that book. And, I bought it.
What I have learned from this book is that it isn’t just about steps. Step one. Step two…It’s about the journey, too. Once I realized this, making dolls became so much easier for me.
I have always made dolls from someone else’s patterns; never being able to re-create that image. Why? Because it wasn’t my journey. It was the doll artist’s journey.
I have had a great time making primitive dolls. I will make more. Here a few that I have made recently. Two were shared with my sister. Two have been sold. And, two are for sale. I will post again soon.
