Fashion Friday - April

For anyone who doesn't know this, I live in Massachusetts.  I've lived in New England almost all of my life, and I have spent a fair amount of time in Boston.  When the bombing hit the marathon, it was surreal.  I had friends running there.  I was on that street not two weeks ago.  My husband drives to Cambridge every single day.  I can't pretend to understand what happened there, or how those people are feeling.  I do think, however, that part of the job of an artist is to interpret the world and provide some beauty.

My doll for this week is April, with a runner's outfit and a Boston shirt.  A lot of people are wearing their Boston gear right now, and so I made this doll.  It's one of the teeny, tiny ways that I can feel a little bit better about what happened.  Hopefully, it will cheer someone else, too.

  1. Thank you! I was hoping you would do something like this!

    1. So glad you like it :-) I needed to do something... My husband was in Cambridge today & a lot of my friends live and work in the Boston area. It's such a tiny thing, but I hope it brightens someone's day/week after such tragedy.
