TGIT Thank God It's Tuesday
TGIT, Thank God It's Tuesday!!! My first day off this week. My computer, desk and work table for my art are all in my room. I love it, I have a nice sized room and I'm always close to my creative space. This is great because I sometimes have odd sleep patterns where I may have insomnia one week and then the next week I may be up at the crack of dawn. My doctor once told me I could either go on sleeping pills or just get up and occupy my mind until I felt drowsy. I chose not to go on sleeping pills and instead I allow my creative mind to work until I feel naturally ready to sleep. I've been this way for over 20 years and for me it seems to work.
The first thing I see when I wake up every morning are my dolls and my art work. This morning I woke up and my "work in progress" dolls looked like this. Have they been partying all night while I slept?
This week, in addition to working on my male doll I am going to experiment with staining and dyeing fabric to get a more realistic variety of skin tones for my dolls. I've been reading some articles and did some research on different methods and techniques. Can't wait to get started!!
