Of Writers and Divas

La Diva Airstream, articulated paper doll
giclee print, mini brads, ~8.5" high

I've printed out, cut out and assembled my La Diva paper doll. I just wanted to show you how cool she turned out when all put together. I still think she needs a frilly apron, and now a vintage camera, but there wasn't room on the paper when I was drawing. Those "new style" skirts take up a lot of material... fabric and/or paper.

She is far more glam than I will ever be, but I am glad that she was commissioned, because I love her.

I've also put her up for sale in my shop. Finally. I'm trying to get my back log up in there, but there's so much I get overwhelmed. So it's an achievement to put her together, do a photo shoot, edit, and list. And then go and write a post! Geez.

So tell me to stop feel like I'm cheating for putting the same piece up two posts in a row. I already feel guilty for letting my once daily blog slip to once weekly if I'm lucky.

And here's a reminder about The Writer. She's up in my shop, too. How exciting. Two new things. And she also serves as a constant reminder to myself that I am working on my novel, however slowly, even if it's just researching the query process.

I also started some polymer clay beads last night, while watching Glee, which I just love. It's an experimental process, but I want a new necklace, so I brought out my clay.

I hope your processes are continuing on. I hope you're not too hard on yourself when you don't get as far as you'd like. I hope you're letting your alter egos out to play sometimes. It's good to play sometimes.

The paper dolls are great! And I know what you mean about being overwhelmed. NO GUILT!

No. Guilt!

I haven't posted in months. And now I'm not sure I even should as I don't deserve a faithful readership, because I, in turn have not been faithful!

I love this La Diva! So, do you just hang it on a corkboard? I kind of want to get one framed properly. Maybe I should commission one almost like that with a camera for sure!

Blog posts aren't the only way to be creative. One post that includes several other creative projects gets double and triple credit. I loved paper dolls as a girl and always expanded their wardrobe.
