But the art side of plush dolls is calling me! If it wasn't for this gov't program pressuring me to make a product in large quantities (that, and the need for financial assistance to pay my bills), I probably would be nurturing my more artistic side with art dolls. Because art dolls take so much more time, I feel guilty if I spend half a day working on something that's larger, more complex, and in the end, more expensive. But it's nice to nurture that side once in a while.
I've been dabbling with the art doll idea. See here:

Great! Until next time. In the meantime, here's a cute photo of me playing with my cat, Squeak, and a moustache sculpey I made yesterday. I love this photo. It took me a full 3 minutes before Squeak would sit still and I could position the moustache in front of his face and get the camera still. :) Success!
