I'm Still Here

Oh yes, you can't get rid of me that easily. It's just that Creative Workshops has kept me hopping this month and we had some video issues arise that kept my nose to the grind for about 10 days. But I think we're back in control again (as much as one can be in control LOL). And amongst all the stress and the busyness I slowly eked out 10 minutes here and 20 minutes there to visit the studio and take a few moments for myself. I've so been enjoying Joanna's classes and using them to de-stress. So here is my 2nd doll I created and a collage. They will both eventually make their way to my Etsy shop The Papier Cottage.
Her name is Cherish
Dreamer of Dreams

I also have new inventory for the store that I still need to finish uploading and new papers and collage sheets. Hmmm, I guess I'm still busy and better get cracking! ;-)
OK, more later!

Cherish is adorble. I took a peek into your Etsy shop, but she hasn't made it yet. I'll keep checking.

I am loving these new creations! Gail, I am having the time of my life creating digital collages. I didn't know it would be so addicting! Thank you so much for providing the class for everyone.

Oh my gosh Gail, I did not realize you had your own blog apart from Mind Wide Open. Where have I been? I discovered it from being over at your Shabby Cottage Studios. Better late than never!

Beautiful work Gail, Cherish suits your doll very much, so good to hear you had some creative time, you need that, especially when there is a lot of stress going on.
Thanks for visiting me, and yes, I am having too much fun :)
