    Your art is so happy and comforting.
    The paper dolls definitely call back to simpler times don’t they?

  15. Jill says:

    reminds me of The Message version of Colossians 3:14, which I LOVE and have used in my work:
    “So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.”

  16. The Islander says:

    Great idea! And then the added blessing of Colossians 3:14…I lived my first 6+ years in an old log house and played paper dolls with a passion…you have given me a new idea for my new art journal…thank you.

  17. It’s awesome…listening to paper dolls and seeing one so whimsically presenting herself and all her ‘things’.

  18. You just make us happy….I used to play paper dolls for hours with my little sister when we were kids….It would probably do me good to play with some now….think I will get some for my grandaughter….you have inspired me….
