folding . . . stuffing . . . doodling . . . No Peeking!





Count to 10 . . . no peeking!

What a wonderful two days this weekend was . . . nothing special - simply two days off . . . Hide & Seek with Lily and Charlotte, paper cranes, reading, lunch with Richard, starting a new doll . . . staying up late, dress up with the girls.  I love weekends!

Shabby Charlotte Doll - Seraphina

I have been putting off finishing this doll . . . although I sort of knew what I wanted to do with her - I just couldn't get motivated to finish her for some reason.  So I made myself get her out today . . . and she is finished.  I like how she turned out.  Especially her little skeleton t-shirt and her little tube of lipstick. 
Her name means "fiery ones" . . . I liked the sound of that.



Seraphina is a unique little doll with a personality that everyone loves.  There is just something a little magical about her.  Sometimes her head is in the clouds and full of daydreams . . . and other times she is sensible and on the go.  She is good to everyone she meets and loves to make new friends.  Once you are her friend she will be there for you always. 
She likes red lipstick, fun shoes, trips to Starbucks and shopping for vintage clothing.  Her little bag is full of things that she likes . . . and things she keeps to remind her of the people she loves.

 and a little pink."

dress up with grandpa . . .

I do believe this little girl could get her grandpa to do just about anything.  
Thank heaven for little girls!

cootie catcher cranes . . .




One of my friends found this origami cootie catcher kit and thought of me and my paper cranes.  I think the paper makes better cranes than cootie catchers.  I love fun paper!  Thank you Traci!

One Minute Journal . . .

"To live a creative life 
we must lose our fear of being wrong."  
~ Joseph C. Pearce
 Richard was cleaning out a drawer and was throwing away this little book when I noticed it.  It is the instruction book that came with a watch.  It was way to cute to just throw away . . . 
 So I decided to use it for a little pocket journal.  Nothing too fancy or detailed . . . I'll use it to jot down quotes that I find, or glue in little items that are part of my day.  It is small enough to stick in my purse.  I like the idea of just taking a few seconds each day to jot something down in this little book . . . my  "1 Minute Journal" . . . that is easy enough to do every day.
