Stella's 80th Birthday!

Hi all,
Stella's 80th birthday is coming up on June 13th.

We are only planning a small family dinner, but we hope that you'd like to be there in spirit and can help us spread the word so we can surprise her with Birthday wishes from all her family and friends by way of Birthday card or email message. Please click on the photo above for details on where we would like you to send the message.

Patty is coming out in July so we will be getting together again then to celebrate.

Can you help us out by please forwarding this message to any friend and family that you have email addresses for and ask them to pass it on by word of mouth.

It took us a while to get our act together so if we use regular mail we won't get the message out in time.

Thanks for your help!

Ellen Degeneres Puppet

As Part of Ellen Dolls-to-the-Wall challenge on Art Dolls Only,

I'm creating an Ellen puppet. Still a work in progress, I'll post as I go along so stay tuned!

Here, I've cut and glue the head from foam. Actually a foam mattress topper that I bought but it didn't fit my bed. Rather than try to put it back in it's original packaging I kept it to re-purpose at some point. Guess that point was now!

And now testing out a body.

Zoya Papier Mache Finished

Yes! Finally finshed her. It was a really long arduous task... papier mache is not for the meek! Endless layers of paper and sanding.... uggg. But I am absolutely thrilled with the way she turned out!
