Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Kids Picture to Rag Doll

I am so excited to audition for So You Think You're Crafty.

For my audition piece I started with two simple things.....

A picture my daughter drew:

And a bunch of old T-shirts:

So I decided to make my daughter a doll out of her drawing, and so dolly was born:

My husband thinks that she looks like a Zombie doll, I think she is a pretty close match to the drawing.

I think she looks like a rag doll supper model.

Here is the Before and After:

Ironically someone else decided to take their child's drawing and turn it into awesome art. Check out Besserina and her Stitched Pillow for Olivia: HERE. I can not believe we basically made the same audition piece. 

Thanks for looking,

OH MY GOSH Robin, I know! That first morning I was so excited to see all of the auditions up, and yours was first. I called my husband in and we were both cracking up about yours and mine being so much alike!!! Good luck, can't wait to see which one was yours this week! :) Bess
