"A" is for Art & Attitude & My Dolls Ashley, Adilah, Akili, Akiba & Adriana

I am happy to be a part of the A to Z Challenge again this year. Last year I had a lot of fun and met some new people and I look forward to meeting new people again this year.

At first I thought I must be crazy to do this again. There were days last year that I didn't think I could think of something to post every day and I have a bigger time crunch this year because I'm working more both on my job and at home with my own art.

Which is a good start for the first day. "Art", can't live without it because it is as much a part of me as my fingers and toes.

"Attitude" is important in my life because a positive "attitude" makes being creative and my life in general a much easier experience.

Lastly, "Ashley", "Adriana", "Adilah", "Akiba" and Akili are some of my creations, my dolls. I call all of my dolls "Gloria's Girls" or my ancestor dolls. "Ashley" was adopted last week by one of my clients. I am always sad to let one of my dolls go yet so happy when I know they are going to a good home.


  1. Good luck on the challenge!

    I love the colors and patterns in the doll's dresses. A lot of movement and interest!

  5. Thank you everyone. I'm so glad to hear from you.

  6. H there - I love the vibrancy & kaleidoscope of bold colors & designs of your dolls' clothes.
    ... and I think that we're all a little crazy to be subjecting ourselves to this madness! LOL!
    Love the "attitude" comment - the power of positive thinking is amazing!

  7. Happy A to Zing!!! Good point. Love the idea of Attitude. It's so important to staying happy and focused! :) Have a Super Day!

  8. These are really beautiful dolls! I love the details and the way you mix patterns! My grandma was a doll collector (had well over a thousand, and knew each of their stories) and I know she would have LOVED this site.

    Best of luck with the challenge! Glad you decided to persevere and go for it again!
