A siren of the silver screen and a TASTY opportunity

Thank you everyone for your supportive comments. You remember right Jowynn, maybe I should move house!!! Today, I feel like giving up on the dolls but I heed all your good advice, I'm girding my loins, pulling myself together and I'm building a website ready for putting some up on EBay and Etsy.

None of my friends and family are in the least bit interested in my all consuming hobbies and passions so I have joined a local group, the Creative Co-op, in the hope of meeting some like-minded people to chat and swop ideas with. It was through the Co-op I got the chance to do the craft fair. The Co-op is also running an Art Show later this month and I have the opportunity to take some space there for my textile work. I've decided to use it as a chance to exhibit, rather than sell. That way, I think I will find it a much more enjoyable experience! If people are interested in buying, than that will be a bonus. I'll be switching to TAST mode for that, tidying up some of the 3d pieces and samples that I made. I was definitely getting withdrawal symptoms while I was working on the dolls!

In the mean time, here's a picture of a 'S'mockery Siren' inspired by the screen goddesses of the 40s and 50s. Nobody wanted to buy this at the craft fair either!

She is simply fabulous! The gesture with her hand is just great. And her eyes! I was wishing you had a web gallery where people could see all your work in one place. Then I remembered Flickr. I'm going there next to review your work I've seen along the way. I love it all.

All I can say is that the wrong kind of people come to your craft fair - this would have been snapped up within minutes at any of the craft markets around this part of Melbourne! It's gorgeous!
