March-End-of-the-Month Give-Away!

Time, much like the month of March… has slipped away.
But not without our Give-Away!
Many of you know that four years ago, I heard those words
when my biopsies came back: "You have cancer!"
Now, almost four years later and three years following
my treatment… I am thankful for wholeness in
spirit, mind, and body!

Several of us were challenged at that time, 
to create a doll that was based
upon this theme of "healing"…
Here is my mixed-media doll. 
It is time to pass it on; 
the hope of healing and wholeness!

Leave a comment or note on this post, 
between now and the end of the day on March 31st.
 Let us choose one name… 
and this guy will be in the mail on April 1st!
Blessings… Daryle

What a Difference Two Days & Twenty Degrees Makes!

The snow (see the March 6th post) is quickly retreating 
and in its place... our crocus are coming up!
(untouched color… they are glorious!)

Be blessed in this new week…
Are you standing on "holy ground"?

Winter's Strong Hold… Letting Go?

Our newest snowfall… here in South Jersey.
There are "whispers" of temps reaching into the mid-50's
next week; oh happy day!

The Angel Shrine Doll Workshop!

I hope that you will join me on my newest and certainly most ambitious 
journey in quite some time… I am launching today, a new blog site: 

"Cloth and Clay Doll Makers"

It is up and running… and in the next day or two I hope to begin to make available the Angel Shrine Doll Workshop, right on the new blog.

It is a 5-part workshop that I have just finished editing...
and hope to have ready for cloth and clay doll makers
of all skill levels and interest. 

You can find the new blog at: http://clothandclaydollmakers.blogspot.com

(Just click on the link or use the one on the side column right here)

I hope that you'll stop by, leave a comment and let me know if you
enjoy Part 1 of the Angel Shrine Doll Workshop.

Winter's Strong Hold... Eased A Bit!

From our Resurrection Lilies attempting to emerge...
to clumps and clumps of Daffodils, all standing like sentinels in the soil!

From Jack Frost's shenanigans, when winter's lights were low....
to last Fall's seed pods, refusing to let go!

Even our Lenten Roses...
remain tightly closed, waiting... for release from winter's stronghold!

Enjoy this new week!

"Right Church...Wrong Pew" in ADQ!

The newest issue of Art Doll Quarterly (spring 2015) 
features some incredible art dolls by artists like:
Ankie Daaken
Jaquiline Hurlbert
Cindee Moyer
Tatjana Raum

And there on page 114...
you'll find "Right Church... Wrong Pew!"

He is made using:
paper clay, paper maché and assorted mulberry papers.
This little guy was my "anthropomorphic challenge" doll
who found his way to the "Show & Tell" section in this issue.

I'd say he looks like he's headed to Mardi Gras!
Thanks for taking a peek!
