I don't have a formal lesson for today. I have a few months every year that are crazy, and May is typically one of them. Every year I have three birthdays, a wedding anniversary, Mother's Day, and Memorial Day. I tend to see my extended family and sometimes my in-laws at some or all of these events. Add to this a two-day graduation event and things start getting nuts. I was in three states over the course of two days!!
Anyway... I want to share a few updates.
First, I attended my cousin's graduation over the weekend. I made a paper doll for her in March -- she has the same birthday as my youngest son, so I thought it would make a fun present. I took it one step further and made it a magnetic doll.
Second, I am posting a multi-page doll on Friday. I'm not going to say much, except that it's a theme I'm very excited about and it has a sci-fi influence. You'll have to wait and see.
Third, I'm working on a doll I'd like to have published with a *real* publisher. As such, it's going to take some attention but I won't be able to share any of the details here. Think happy thoughts for me :)
Fourth, the newest issue of OPDAG's paper doll magazine is on its way. When it arrives, I'll share some of that here.
And finally, what should I write for lessons? I'm starting to run out of ideas. I have a couple more software lessons I'd like to try, as well as a doll in oil paints and maybe markers. Perhaps more mini lessons or going in-depth on certain subjects? Any ideas/suggestions are welcome. I love writing the lessons and people seem to enjoy reading them. I actually gave my 5 year old niece a paper doll lesson this weekend and it was super gratifying!!
So any and all ideas are welcome. Look for an amazing, out-of-this world doll set on Friday!
