She is a Blythe doll. She has a short purple bob hairstyle, four different colored eye choices (you can pull a cord and change the color of her eyes - aka eye chips!), she has a simple skipper style body. Most of her doll clothes I have found have been vintage clothes from doll collectors!
She has been my latest photography experiment. She has been teaching me how to catch the best light, has gotten me outdoors and has given me great joy to capture and dress up for these photo shoots!
Most of these photos have been taken on my day off. She brings me back to the days of "play".
She has reminded me to slow down, and do what I love ... Create!
As a child I was never into dolls, but she is different. Unique. Fun.
I will admit I went back and forth between a few words for 2017. I had the word BALANCE last
year and I wanted to continue this journey. I feel RELEASE will help me hold on to the good
and let go of anything that is no longer working for me.
As many of us, this time of the year makes us want to start the year off right. I am thinking of small routines that will place me into my creative space during the free moments throughout the day. I have been carrying a book and a journal around with me for awhile. I would like to try my hand at adding sketching and watercolor to my journals. I would love to expand on my creativity, alongside of my writing, poetry and photography.
After viewing so many posts of friends and families children heading back to school ... It brought me back to the movie You've Got Mail and certain lines that I so enjoyed!
I have to say after all these years, I can still watch You've Got Mail and smile for a full two hours. It is one of those movies that I return to often and it does not take long to remember why. Nora Ephron had a way with her writing, casting and bringing us back to the special connections we make.
I came across this image while surfing google images and remembered how much I loved this line in the movie, "I Would Send You A Bouquet Of Newly Sharpened Pencils If I Knew Your Name & Address" ~Joe Fox (Tom Hanks). Just one of so many incredible lines spoken in this film.
Do you have a favorite line in this movie? I would love to hear back from you ...
