We have had snow this week in Rainier, Oregon. everyone makes a really big deal about it in my neck of the woods as it is not an ordinary occurrence, especially in November!
although I enjoy the peace, tranquility and silent beauty of a snow covered landscape, it does have it's drawbacks. I have been house bound the past week, unable to leave here until it melts. No city snowplows here! Well, its a good excuse to stay inside my studio and create, warmed with a nice cup of hot chocolate. With whipped cream of course!
Here are a few pics of my winter wonderland.

Here is a fairy I designed for Soft Dolls & Animals! magazine. She sits at 12" , has wings of organza.
My studio is located in the beautiful countryside in Rainier, Oregon. I have a beautiful view from my window of Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens!
Recently we have had too much rain in Oregon and my studio was flooded. It is a remodeled garage which sits lower than the other structures on the property. The floor in one half of my studio became flooded and what a mess that was! Everything was moved to one side as the carpet and pad were pulled up. With two electric heaters and fans, after two weeks of drying and cleaning I was able to put things back in order. I really missed not having my space!

This week I have been working on a submission for one of the doll magazines and thought I would share it here. This will also be a 1-day workshop doll. Her name is Fanta, and she has many faces. She has a full body armature, button or clay mask head, and three wing types not to mention the many embellishing possibilities!
