The Quinlan Doll and Bear Convention has come and gone once again. Another year of seeing all of the artist's wonderful creations, making new friends and sharing good laughs with old friends all the while creating another great bunch of memories to cherish for a life-time. It was a fun show indeed. Too bad a lot of you could not attend...you are really missing out!
Now, I am making headway for the International Doll and Teddy Show that is on the weekend of June 23 and 24. I have 2 projects on my work bench that I am striving to complete in time to make an appearance at the show. :-) One has turned out to be a lot more involved that I had anticipated. LOL You know how it is, once you get going on something, you keep adding and adding and adding until you look up and think....OMG, I have created a monster! Well, in truth, it's not a behemoth project per say, but it does have a lot of little parts that are taking me longer than I had expected. :-P Suffice to say, it will be pretty cute once I am finished I think. With luck, perhaps I can get in a 3rd project, but I am not going to hold my breath on that. :-) At any rate, all my current WIP pictures are stuck on my phone, so you will just have to take my word for it. :-D Hopefully, I'll have time to share something later once I get closer to completion. No promises on that though. o.O
Aside from show preparations, I was just notified that my class in Albuquerque, New Mexico for the Road to Enchantment convention has been cancelled due to lack of interest. Hmmm, probably because it was a little bit of a daunting task of trying to complete a full figure in 2 days. LOL Can you say....over achiever? Yeah, just a bit. But, in my defense, this is what the organizers wanted from me. I tried to explain to them that THAT was a bit much...even for myself, but this is what they wanted. Initially the class was 3 days, then it dropped to 2 days. Which made it even more of an impossible task. At any rate, next time I am asked to teach a class, I will suggest what I think how it should be and what I am comfortable doing. *sigh* I guess you live and learn from these types of things. Now, at least next time, I will know better. :-) Besides, what is that old saying? When one door closes another one opens? We shall wait and see what comes up!
