Here is a photo of an emerging doll. The birth process has been complicated. She keeps speaking to me and telling me different things. Yesterday afternoon I finally had to go for a drive-for four hours!-because I couldn't tell what she was asking for. I beaded her face a few weeks ago. Her hair came through late last night after my "fresh air" drive. It was so much fun to make! I stayed up way too late...

She keeps telling me that she is a mermaid from the sea. Then she begs to wear a cape of glittery, jewel-toned, flowing, synthetic fabric...I am torn between getting my hands deep into the gifts from the sea and following her to a disco party! For a while she was "The Handless Maiden." Now she is the armless, headless...making up her mind maiden...I will be patient. Wait and listen. Art cannot be forced...She is already quite fabulous and so beautiful...She actually looks in the photo like she just washed up on a sandy shore...I feel that way quite often myself...Actually, this is exactly how I am feeling today!

I love her face. Can't wait until she tells you what the rest of her looks like.

Your doll is so espressive Camilla, I like the Mermaid idea but then I am most definitely inspired by the Oceans.. Speaking of washed up on a sandy shore, my Tide Pool (the header on my blog) began when I found it on the sandy shore near where we live..

Your stream of conscious doll making process and self-talk blogging are precious... Thank you!
Hugs, Robin A.
