Slide show

I made this slide show for ADO (Art Dolls Only) and it shows the work of many doll makers. I hope you like it, I sure liked working on it!

If you want to see more of the artists, visit the squidoo lens made by CheriV HERE where you can find more links, pictures and great information.

What I've been up to lately

I hope everyone had a great Easter and Spring break!
I have been dealing with a terrible case of a broken dishwasher. I won't go into the gory details, but it started by a recall since the beginning of March, and neither company (the store where we bought it, and the manufacturer having a recall part) has been successful in finish the mess they started. Four technicians later, I have the washer's guts under the counter and the door in pieces in a box... and they told me it was going to be a 15 minutes job... ha! 15 minutes and 2 months more like it.
Anyway, back to the artsy part of my post, here's a picture of the paintings I've been working on.

I had left my canvases for the clay, and I am very much into dolls (I am making a video for ADO, I'll post a link when I upload to YouTube) but I also get the itch for the brushes and paint tubes :oD

I also finished remixing -finally- the Odysseus video book-report my son made. He got an A+ We laugh all over again, it's such a silly thing!
Oh... I love this! Have you heard of Susan Boyle ? Get a kleenex. That's one CD I'm getting.

Cool video and Avatar comments

Well, first the good news and then the comments:
I am thrilled to announce that one of my dolls is on a video made by CheriV, from the group ADO (Art Dolls Only) Enjoy... then read about my avatars...

OK, Here's my question/comment: Like most crafters/artists nowadays, I belong to different groups online and I guess some people have their act together much better than others, as in more uniform with the same icon everywhere...and I have been using any ol' avatar that I can grab at the moment, because usually one size doesn't fit all, so.... In order to go standard I have been changing most of them into only 2 avatars... and my blog picture.
OK, then it's 3.
I think I should change everything to the same avatar.
I was going to use the first one everywhere, but in ning it just doesn't work because of the proportions, so I use the second one. The third one I use in OG, but will update with the eye soon.

Plus my blog pic, that I have been using since 2005.
....geez that's 4 LOL ....Didn't I say that I had a lot of them??
Now I wonder, should I change my blog icon into the eye avatar?
