This is the theme...and a great theme...
from Maggie at Magpie's Nest.
I have always loved paper dolls.
I am old enough to remember them fondly.
More than fondly.
I lived for the paper dolls I could cut from my Nani's Housekeeping magazines.
I also imagined better clothes for them,
and tried to make them myself.
And there began my first art anxiety.
The clothing never matched up to the bodies.
And were never as glamorous and sparkly as I saw them in my head.
But,I still have a love for paper dolls,
which is why I have these saved sheets.
They are from Mary Engelbreit's magazine, Home.
Years and years ago.
I got rid of the mags this past spring, but saved the paper dolls.
For now they are a give-away!
If anyone would like these...they are yours.
Just let me know in the comments.
I would be happy, so happy to mail them to you.
Let me know.
I HAVE been playing with paper dolls of my own...
Or you could call it a puzzle.
Or a thought process.
I am working on a commission.
And I think I am in over my head.
The Last Supper.
Have a happy week everyone,
I'll be visiting you....
