It’s that time, when I start thinking of the year gone by and the year ahead. And 2014 was wonderful. I made loads of dolls, and therefore bettered my skills and my eye for detail. I moved my little operation to a new location, and felt the new-to-me freedom of creative time – and oh how I’ve used it (sometimes I even forget about lunch). The dolls went on an Alberta road trip for the first time! And, I was lucky enough to participate in two group shows, allowing me to explore the soft sculpture side of plush making, and I’ve loved it.
I’ve got big plans for next year, probably way too big, but better too big than too small (it’s like kid’s clothes, right? you can always grow into them…). I am taking a break over the holidays to see family and lounge about, or well, as much as I am capable of that last part – but I’m sure I will eagerly be back in January.
I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported me this year, whether through the purchase of a doll, a kind email about my work, or by sharing something of mine that you are fond of. As always, I am so thankful to be able to do creative work – and it is largely because of the support of all of you! Thank you so very much, and Merry Christmas!
