About Me

My photo
Just a note about me - I'm a crafter wanna be:o) and am enjoying every minute that I can work in my craftroom (aka the Girl's room). Its called the Girl's room because my daughter (and other female visitors) usually stay in this room. And because our two cats that we call "the Girls" love to come in and visit me when I'm crafting - otherwise they are locked out - they just love feathers, glitter and lace! I'm a member of West Branch Creative Arts Association which gives me an avenue to meet other crafters and support art in our community. And, I'm a "card carrying" member of the Red Hat Society. I belong to the Foxy Ladies Chapter, the Incredible Hatters and the Bionic Babes - our main focus is FUN and that's very easy with these ladies! Since retiring November of 2011, I can't believe how busy I've been - don't know how there was time to work!!!

Sassy Sally is Stepping Out

Sassy Sally is my latest creation for entry in the County Fair.  She is a brunette and loves red lipstick!  Her dress is hand-sewn multiple layers of purple sheer organza with sequins, purse is also hand-sewn with a crystal closure and her necklace is red and clear crystals.  Her hat sports a bright purple feather with a glittery red band and a purple flower in the back and a hat pin with crystals to match her necklace.  And, to top off her fancy dress she has a fluffy red boa.

Ok, so my inner girl is coming out!!  Always loved playing with paperdolls as a girl and this is just as much fun!!!

Poor Sassy Sally - she didn't get to go to the County Fair - I signed up for the wrong category and she doesn't get to party at the Fair - there's always next year:o)
