The Dutch Touch Class

I was a lucky girl, I got to go to NIADA and take a three day class with Kate Church, then to Sanford FL to Anne Hesse's home for "The Dutch Touch Class" Ankie Daanen and Marlaine Verhelst. In the Dutch Touch class, we made a Fish Boy, mine came out as a Fish Girl, with a Halloween flair.

Ankie and Marlaine were really fun, and great teachers.
 I know some of you are checking out the art in the back ground, yes, I took pictures at Anne's and I will post them. Her home was fabulous, we were surrounded with so much inspiration.

Here are some more photos of some of the other's dolls.

              Marcia's Fish Boy

                         This is Deborah and her adorable Fish Boy.
 This Marcia, she is an artist from Canada, she and her husband, Ty teach various classes.
I shared two weeks with her in hotel rooms, along with Janice, who hates having her picture taken.
We drank a lot of wine and laughed like fools.

Those girls know how to have fun...
Hi everybody,
Just got back from Orlando FL. I went to NIADA conference.
I took a 3 day class from Kate Church. She was so wonderful.
I love her figurative art. She is a sweetheart. 
Here is some of her work.
I purchased the little guy on the shoe brush. 
It's Kate's "Brushes with Destiny" series. Cute huh!

This is the doll I created for my critique at NIADA.

I had a great time, and learned a lot. 
I'll be posting more photos of NIADA.

Cruise Photos

There is one reason why I don't post often.
I still have trouble figuring out blogger.
If anyone out there can send me link to
a easy tutorial on blogger, let me know!

Here are the photos of the doll cruise.
They appeared in my preview of the 
last post, but apparently didn't show
up when I published! Ughh

So here ya go
Here are mine. The one on left is from Anne's class.
I just love Anne!

These are some of the dolls created from our class.

This one was made by Collette, she didn't receive the pattern before we left.
She crocheted this from the top of her head without a pattern, Really talented lady!

As you can see, many of us didn't get both dolls completed.

Hope these photos post! Thank you so much
 for your comments on my last post.
Love you guys!

Doll Cruise with Patti Culea and Anne Hesse

I told you I would post photos of the doll cruise I went on,
so what that it was almost a year ago. Sorry it took me so long.
I've had a rough year.
Patti Culea and Anne Hesse were the instructors.
Oh what fun we had! I even got to room with Anne.
I had a great time, It was my first cruise, we went to the Eastern Caribbean.
We made two dolls.
Here is mine from Patti's class. Not finished yet.

Here are some others that are so cute, not quite finished yet.
This one was created by Collette. She didn't receive the pattern before we left, and she crocheted
this without a pattern, just off the top of her head. She is very talented.
I met some really wonderful folks in our class. Friends that I plan on seeing again, definitely.
Hugs to all you doll makers out there.
New Year, Fresh Start!

Here are some cutey patooty's I created for fun.
A little Betty Boop looking, "a how can you resist me look, I'm so cute"
